Joint / Hyaluronic acid injections

There are a number of conditions characterised by pain, stiffness and swelling of the joints which are suitable for treatment with a hyaluronic injection. These conditions are caused most commonly from overuse of the joint for example Osteoarthritis and tendonitis.

What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a gel-like substance that is naturally present throughout the human body. In the joints, it has several functions, including:

  • Lubrication. Hyaluronic acid binds well to water, producing a viscous, jelly-like consistency. This viscous fluid provides lubrication and also acts as a shock absorber within the joint.
  • Growth of cartilage and bone. Hyaluronic acid helps in the growth and development of joint’s cartilage and bone by promoting the growth of new cells and tissues.
  • Reducing inflammation. Hyaluronic acid plays an important role in reducing joint inflammation and pain caused by injury or tissue degeneration.
