Hyaluronic acid has been used in medicine for over 10 years to help relieve the pain and reduce the progression of osteoarthritis. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance within all joints; it has been shown to reduce in quality and quantity in arthritic joints.
In effect, hyaluronic acid injections are the equivalent of performing an oil change as you would during a car service. The result is increased lubrication, protection of cartilage and reduced pain from osteoarthritis.
All our hyaluronic acid injections follow a one-injection protocol using the premium brand ‘Ostenil Plus’. More information on this product can be found at ostenil.trbchemedica.co.uk. Typically there is a 70% response rate to hyaluronic acid injections with most people experiencing 6-12 months of pain relief.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance so there is no limit to the number of injections you can have – unlike corticosteroids.
HYALURONIC ACID INJECTIONS CAN BE USED FOR:
• Knee Osteoarthritis • Thumb Osteoarthritis
• Hip Osteoarthritis • Shoulder Pain
• Big Toe Osteoarthritis
Please note that ALL of our injections are Ultrasound guided. Research has shown significantly better outcomes when using guided versus unguided injections simply because you can be sure to target the specific injury.
