Supartz Knee Therapy If you suffer from knee arthritis it can be hard to know where to turn for treatment – surgery is painful and results in a long recovery time, medication can be addictive and result in side effects; diet and exercise can be limited in their effectiveness. Knee arthritis makes it difficult to move around and to relax; the condition needs to be treated. Thankfully there is another option – Supartz knee therapy that offers the chance to move more freely and feel less pain. If you have queries about this treatment plan, read below for the answers to commonly asked questions.

  • What is Supartz Therapy?

Supartz therapy is a series of injections into the knee joint to treat the pain associated with knee arthritis.

  • What is in the Injection?

The active component injected into the knee joint is a pure form of sodium hyaluronate (hyaluronan), a substance that is found in the joints. When found in the fluid surrounding the joints it helps to protect and cushion the joints and prevent pain when moving. Using the injection to treat knee arthritis is a way to supplement the existing fluid and provide more of a cushioning effect.

  • How are the Injections Administered?

A licensed clinician will handle the procedure and inject the solution directly into the site of the pain. First, a local anesthetic may be given. The number of injections you need depends on the severity of the pain and your overall health. The treatment plan will be put together based on your individual circumstances.

  • Are there any Side Effects?

As Supartz therapy doesn’t involve medication or surgery there are few side effects or adverse reactions associated with the procedure. Most people do not feel any discomfort when the injections are given. You may experience some irritation or pain at the site of the injection but this will quickly pass.

  • What are the Benefits of Supartz Knee Therapy?

Choosing Supartz over surgery or medication cuts the risk of side effects and also ensures you can be active again shortly after the treatment has been administered. It is best if you avoid strenuous activities after the injection but you don’t have to rest your knee and you will also benefit from supplementing the treatment with gentle physical therapy or exercise. Supartz is a proven way to gain pain relief from the problematic condition of knee arthritis, and has been tested to ensure its safety.

Super exciting to have my husband feel and perform like he was 20 years old again. Thank you to the entire staff at Innovative Health and Wellness.

I had been yo-yo dieting for several years after having kids, trying to lose the extra weight I had gained when pregnant. I tried just about every diet out there and failed at each one of them because they weren't sustainable. I was introduced to the Ketogenic diet in June of 2018 and thats when my weight loss journey truly began. I give credit to Innovative Health & Wellness by keeping me accountable in my weight loss journey with weekly weigh ins, support from the entire team and educated coaching. I'm loving my new lifestyle and finally feel comfortable in my own skin!

“Love this place! Stefania and Valerie at the front desk are so sweet:) They always have smiles on their faces, and are so helpful! I came here at the recommendation of a friend after being rear ended in a wreck, and having awful neck pain. I have to admit I was a little nervous at first because I am a very private person, and it is difficult for me to have people in my personal space, but the whole staff made me feel so comfortable! Dr. Orlando is so kind and gentle. He really puts your mind at ease, and just makes you feel better!!! I don’t know how they do it, but no matter what kind of day I’ve had at work, I always leave this place smiling:) Thanks for taking such great care of me!!!”*

“I have been going to Innovative for almost 7 months for weight loss and it has been an awesome experience! I have lost 60 pounds and definitely could not have done it without the support and encouragement of the staff! I go there every week for weigh-ins and blood pressure checks, and they have become like family to me. They go through my highs and lows with me, and keep me on track. It has been a life-changing experience, and I would highly recommend Innovative if you are ready to lose weight and lead a healthier life!”*
