Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is a natural element of cartilage and joint fluid. It has a "lubricant" function that makes the cartilage smooth, also, it has an anti-inflammatory effect and relieves pain for a significant time period. Hyaluronic acid treatment is most often used in knee diseases, but its use in the treatment of other joints has been increasing.

By injecting hyaluronic acid into the joint (usually 6 applications), the synovial fluid is gradually restored. Pain and limited mobility can often be improved, and that improvement lasts for months or years. The earlier the stage of arthrosis (Kellgren 1-2), the more benefits the patients feels in the affected joints. After application, patients suffering from osteoarthritis of the hip, knee or ankle, often describe a significant increase in the maximum length of walking and reduction of pain.
