Gel Knee Injections for Arthritis Treatment - Lincoln, Nebraska

What is Gel Knee Injection?

A gel knee injection, also known as viscosupplementation or hyaluronic acid injection, is a medical procedure in which a gel-like substance is injected into the knee joint to alleviate pain and improve joint mobility.


The gel used in the injection is typically made of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance found in the synovial fluid of the joints. Hyaluronic acid acts as a lubricant and shock absorber in the joints, helping to reduce friction and provide cushioning between the bones. When injected into the knee, the gel helps to replenish the joint's natural hyaluronic acid, making it more lubricant and cushiony.
