How does it WORK?
Hyaluronic acid injections are normally used for the treatment of osteoarthritis by reducing pain and improving the function of our joints. Research has shown hyaluronic acid injections reduce cartilage erosion and periarticular fibrosis and improve normal movement patterns, e.g. walking/running gait.
Hyaluronic acid injections are licensed for use in any joint in the body (except the spine). Patients who are active particularly favour these injections as they work to nourish and lubricate joints mimicking the body’s natural synovial fluid, which generally becomes depleted and less viscous with age.
From one course you can expect relief for 9-12 months. Ostenil (hyaluronic acid) is widely used in Sports Medicine, and is used by most UK premiership Football clubs, Rugby clubs, Cricket clubs and the British Olympic Association.
