What Does Supartz Therapy Consist Of?
Supartz is a viscous (thick) sterile mixture made from highly purified hyaluronan. Hyaluronan is a naturally occurring substance that is found in the cartilage of joints as well as in the Synovial fluid (the fluid within the joints). It is a thick slippery fluid that acts as both a lubricant as well as a shock absorber in healthy joints. In patients with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee, the Hyaluronic Acid became thinner over time and became less able to provide protection allowing degeneration, inflammation, and pain to occur.
Supartz Natural Knee Replacement Therapy consists of natural injections into the knee that are painless. It provides the knee with lubrication and cushion which will ease the pain and help you return to your normal activity level.
