Rooster Comb Injections

*NOTE TO PATIENTS: If you are interested in PRP, Stem Cells, or Lubricant Injections you will need to schedule a “NEW PATIENT visit”  to discuss your medical history with Dr. Kanaan first.  This is usually covered under your insurance plan.   We will sometimes make exceptions for patients traveling over 3 hours to our clinic.

Rooster Comb Injections

If you are tired of living with knee pain caused by arthritis or joint inflammation and you’ve been told joint replacement or surgery is your only solution, there are actually several non-surgical options to consider. At Wake Nonsurgical Ortho & Sports Medicine, one of the many options we offer is viscosupplementation, a so-called rooster comb injections.

What is Viscosupplementation?

Rooster Comb injections are a non-invasive treatment for knee and joint pain in which a natural lubricant is injected into the knee to reduce friction and inflammation – a major cause of pain, swelling, and loss of motion. Made from hyaluronic acid, the main component in synovial fluid, the naturally-occurring lubricating fluid in the knee, these injections are natural, safe, and have few to no side effects.

Rooster Comb injections are given in series of three, one week apart,  in a same-day, in-office procedure. Unlike the weeks of recovery and pain from joint replacement, viscosupplementation can have you going about your day in almost no time at all. These injections are successful in reducing pain caused by arthritis, and many of our patients experience long-lasting effects.

Best of all, this treatment is covered by insurance with little to no cost to you, depending on your coverage! To see if rooster comb injections are right for you, schedule an appointment with Wake Nonsurgical Ortho & Sports Medicine.
