Hyaluronic acid is a lubricant found in healthy knee joints. We lose this over time with the development of arthritis. Doctors used to get this product from animals, leading to a number of allergic reactions, but now coporations have ways to produce it that avoids those issues. One of the products produced that way is Hymovis, and we have found it very effective. The treatment takes literally 5 minutes and involves very little discomfort and recent studies show these lubricants can delay or prevent knee replacement surgery!
