Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is a chronic, progressive, degenerative disease of the articular cartilage affecting approximately 13% of elderly populations.

Treatment aims to improve daily function by decreasing pain, preserving mobility, and reducing disability. Total knee arthroplasty, although a definitive treatment, is associated with numerous risks. Injectable therapies may provide an effective, less invasive alternative to the management of knee OA.
