Each year, millions of adults deal with chronic joint pain caused by arthritis, sports injuries and aging. Pain in a joint is one of the most common reasons why people miss work or avoid their favorite activities. Achy joints make it difficult to do everyday activities and the pain may also interfere with sleep.
“I also receive Hyaluronic Acid injections in both of my knees and can attest to its effectiveness in reducing my pain and stiffness.”
-Dr. Ian Ahwah

These injections are great for people who may not yet be a surgical candidate or those who wish to postpone having joint replacement surgery.
Hyaluronic Acid Injection Q & A
How Does a Hyaluronic Injection Work?
As people get older, the amount of synovial fluid drops, and this causes deterioration of the cartilage. Engaging in everyday activities leads to wear and tear. Eventually, bone comes into contact with bone, which causes pain, swelling and a loss of range of motion. The knee hurts and feels stiff, and basic activities become difficult to do. Hyaluronic injections replace the lost synovial fluid. This restores lubrication to the joint. Urgent Care + TeleHealth Napa, Sonoma and Benicia patients may now receive HYALGAN injections to treat their chronic knee pain.

"Fantastic experience from booking the appointment, checking in and being seen. The staff were friendly, efficient and professional. They were knowledgeable about current medical problems. Testing was done very quickly. The doctor was awesome. One of the best I’ve ever seen in my 75 years of life. (Mind you I don’t remember the doctors I saw in my first three years) Symptoms, history, physical exam and test results were evaluated quickly. Diagnosis was made, recommendations and medication given. I was assured it I didn’t improve in 24 hours to return. Overall this group would get a 💯 and a gold star."
