Hyaluronic Shots for Knee Arthritis

Viscosupplementation (aka gel shots, chicken shots, lubricating shots, HA, etc.) for knee arthritis has had controversy since the AAOS (American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgery) updated their guidelines in 2013. Some insurance companies no longer cover HA for knee arthritis. If you find that HA was not effective or repeat treatments have become less beneficial, consider regenerative treatment options as an alternative to surgery.
