Ostenil is a form of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found within our joints. As we get wear and tear and cartilage damage within our joints synovial fluid levels decrease and this can often coincide with pain and stiffness. Ostenil can be injected into synovial joints to aid with these symptoms and that of osteoarthritis and joint inflammation.
This is often favoured over a cortisone (steroid) injection as Ostenil aims to mimic the body’s natural synovial fluid, causing no damage to the body’s tissues, and with no known side effects.
