  1. Hello,this reduction in space occurs due to decrease of lubricant in joint with the increase in age leads to osteoarthritis mainly in knee joint..visco supplementation is the treatment in which injections are given to the affected area locally with support to this treatment it is repeated at some interval..This treatment is given to the patient if conservative treatment like physiotherapy,ice or hot therapy ,exercise fails..Have you gone through physiotherapy sessions before
  2. You should try for the physiotherapy first if not satisfied with it feels no relief then can go for this treatment what your orthopedician has suggested..hope answered your question..Thanx
