Hyaluronic Acid for Osteoarthritis Treatment
At Advanced Healing Institute, we understand how difficult it is to live with osteoarthritis. Therefore, we continue to stay at the forefront of arthritis treatment and help patients find relief with newer and more effective remedies. Beyond regenerative medicine and cortisone injections, we also offer osteoarthritis treatment using hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid injections, also called viscosupplements, are FDA approved for treating arthritis of the knee. However, patients have also discovered improvement using hyaluronic acid therapy on the hip, ankle and other joints.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body. It is found in the important lubricating fluid (synovial fluid) that helps our bones and joints glide against each other. Unfortunately, if you have arthritis, hyaluronic acid breaks down and the joint loses its shock absorption and lubrication. This causes patients to feel pain and stiffness in the joint. After hyaluronic acid injections, they can regain better lubrication and move more freely. Most of all, patients can obtain long-lasting pain relief.
Who is a Candidate for Hyaluronic Acid Injections?
Hyaluronic acid injections are often recommended as a treatment option for osteoarthritis sufferers who are no longer able to control their pain with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. It may also be a solution for patients who have maximized their use of corticosteroids or those that want longer-lasting results than a steroid injection. It should be noted, however, that the full benefits of hyaluronic acid may take up to five weeks to attain, but peak improvement typically lasts for a longer amount of time.
Beyond its capabilities to provide lubrication and shock absorption to the affected joint, research also suggests that hyaluronic acid supplementation can hinder some of the naturally occurring compounds that promote inflammation. In addition, recent studies have found that hyaluronic acid injections may be able to stimulate the body’s own production of HA, which can work to preserve cartilage and slow the progression of osteoarthritis.
If you are suffering from persistent arthritis pain despite other treatment modalities, we invite you to learn more about hyaluronic acid injections. Contact Advanced Healing Institute today to schedule your consult. We are committed to finding effective pain relief for each patient that walks through our doors.
Had the PRP procedure and I have to say no pain at all, going on 6 weeks, if you decide to have the PRP listen to Dr. Dehdari's instructions thoroughly and do the physical therapy, it works and I am so pleased and it's getting better and better as days go on, Dr. Reza Dehdari is the best and very emphatic in explaining all your questions soothing away your doubts, and he checks up on you to make sure all is well, after the PRP procedure. Very trustworthy PRP procedure and his assistant Sandy is also the sweetest caring person you will ever meet. I'm a satisfied customer and patient.

I was suffering from plantar fasciitis for 3 months. It has now been 4 weeks since my PRP treatment and I am now pain free!! Great clinic & staff and great natural treatment!
5 words.....Experienced, Clean, Friendly, Easy, Fast, Results!!!!!!
Went to see Dr. Dehdari for information about PRP treatment, on my hip, and he was able to explain the procedure and really explained it all very well. I had the PRP treatment performed over a month ago, and it has helped so much. Most of the pain in the hip is now gone and I no longer walk with a limp. If your looking for information about PRP, I would definitely recommend co silting with Dr. Dehdari.
I have been suffering for years with knee pain due to over use and years of playing sports. But after seeing Dr. Dehdari and getting treatment my pain is gone and I have never felt better. I am back to doing the activities I love. I got an appointment right away and he was very caring and paid attention to what I had to say.
This is the natural way of letting the body heal itself with the help of an expert like Dr. Dehdari. I tried everything else -- steroids, cortisone, etc.; nothing worked. Then one visit to Dr. Dehdari and my tennis elbow is gone. Highly recommend him and this procedure.
