Osteo Arthritis in Knee

I am helping a person who's not educated much and from a very middle class family (he earns only Rs 10,000/month). He has painful joints since years and after consulting an orthopedic doctor in Apollo he was suggested injection treatment of Viscos-Supplement and referred him to an Arthritis and Pain doctor outside Apollo (private) for low cost treatment option. Can you let me know if you can give him the injection in your hospital and how much will it cost for each injection? Thank You.

Avoid sitting Cross legged. Avoid Squatting- Quadriceps Exercises- Lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core Strengthening Exercise- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams Stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports Taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area Contrast Fomentation (Hot and Cold).

Hello..... It's a gel-like fluid called hyaluronic acid is injected into the knee joint.People with osteoarthritis have a lower-than-normal concentration of hyaluronic acid in their joints.The most recent research, however, has not found viscosupplementation to be effective at significantly reducing pain or improving function. sorry we don't have this injection
