Hyaluronic Acid Injections
We are delighted to announce the addition of Hyaluronic Acid Injections to our diverse range of services. This innovation demonstrates our ongoing dedication to offering our patients the most cutting-edge, efficient therapies, and it provides a fresh option for people suffering from joint pain.
What are Hyaluronic Acid Injections?
Hyaluronic Acid Injections, also known as Visco supplementation, is a treatment method primarily used for managing symptoms of osteoarthritis, a condition that causes the protective cartilage that cushions your bones to wear down. The procedure involves injecting hyaluronic acid — a substance naturally found in the body that helps lubricate and cushion the joints — directly into the joint space. This helps to reduce pain, improve mobility, and promote overall joint health.
Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid Injections
1. Symptom Relief:
Hyaluronic Acid Injections are designed to help alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with osteoarthritis. By improving the joint’s lubrication, these injections can help reduce pain and inflammation.
2. Enhanced Mobility:
These injections can also aid in improving joint function and mobility, helping patients to maintain or even enhance their quality of life.
Hyaluronic Acid Injections are generally well-tolerated, with most patients experiencing minimal side effects. This treatment offers a safe alternative to invasive surgical procedures and systemic medications.
Types of Hyaluronic Acid Injections Available at Southgate Physio Clinic
Ostenil: This product is available in standard and Plus versions, with the latter containing a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid. The traditional type of Ostenil typically calls for a treatment plan that entails numerous injections. The typical treatment plan comprises getting one injection every week for three to five weeks.
Ostenil Plus: This variant of Ostenil contains an elevated level of hyaluronic acid and is usually delivered as a one-time injection. The advantage of this format is that it necessitates fewer visits to the clinic, which some patients may find more convenient.
Durolane: Known for its high molecular weight, Durolane is often administered as a single injection, offering the benefit of fewer clinic visits.
The addition of Hyaluronic Acid Injections to our services at Southgate Physio clinic marks a significant milestone in our pursuit of comprehensive, patient-centred healthcare. We are excited to offer this innovative treatment option to our patients and are here to answer any questions or address any concerns. Our team at Southgate Physio is committed to helping you navigate your journey to better joint health.
