Injection Therapy

Ostenil Injection

OSTENIL® is a solution containing sodium hyaluronate. This is a completely natural product normally produced by healthy joints. It makes the fluid inside your joints thick and helps to lubricate the joint and absorb forces put through the joint.
As we age or develop osteoarthritis, less of this substance is produced by the body and so the fluid in joints becomes thinner and cannot protect the joint as well.
By injecting Ostenil into the space in the joint it can restore the normal balance and decrease pain and stiffness and improve the other symptoms of osteoarthritis.

Steroid injections, also called corticosteroid injections, are anti-inflammatory medicines used to treat a range of conditions.

They can be used to treat problems such as joint pain, arthritis and some tendon issue. 

The injections normally take a few days to start working, although some work in a few hours. The effect usually wears off after a few months.

If you're having an injection to relieve pain, it may also contain local anaesthetic. This provides immediate pain relief that lasts a few hours.
