This cartilage-preserving form of therapy is often used for osteoarthritis in the knee, hip, ankle, shoulder, finger and thumb.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of cartilage and serves as the basic framework for the cartilage. It is the main component of the synovial fluid and acts as a lubricant and lubricant to reduce the frictional forces in a joint to a minimum. It is injected directly into the joint, usually a total of 5 infiltrations are used at regular intervals, whereby the therapy can be repeated several times without any problems if the response is good.
What is osteoarthritis:
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease. The progressive joint wear causes the cartilage in the joint to be destroyed. The result is a loss of the shock absorber function and the sliding ability of the joint. This can lead to symptoms such as pain, restriction of movement and possible misalignment. Appropriate treatment should be initiated in good time to relieve pain and movement impairments and to delay or avoid surgical procedures. So far, there is no specific treatment to stop the progression of osteoarthritis. The aim of the treatment is therefore to reduce pain and improve the function of the joint, or to maintain mobility in everyday life. Osteoarthritis can affect any joint.
