In brief: Knee lubricant
Normal knees have a high level of hyaluronic acid to increase the viscosity of the fluid in the joint.
Arthritic knees have a low level and the fluid in the knee is more like water than oil. Supartz is one type of injectable lubricant to increase hyaluronic acid levels in the knee joint. This usually decreases the pain and increases the function of the arthritic joint.
