Even mild to moderate osteoarthritis knee pain can stop you in your tracks

A healthy knee has thick synovial fluid that lubricates and cushions the joint, protecting it from damage. Osteoarthritis causes the synovial fluid to lose hyaluronic acid and become thin and weak.12,13 Consequently, fluid depletion magnifies osteoarthritis and increases soreness and stiffness.12-14 It also limits knee strength, movement and accelerates joint damage.12-14

Say no to more limits. Choose HA and keep moving.

Our FDA-approved hyaluronic acid therapies are injected into the knee to restore the lubricating and shock-absorbing properties of the synovial fluid, providing pain relief that lasts much longer than painkillers.9,10 These therapies also increase mobility and protect the joint from further damage.11


Choose HA for joint protection as well as pain relief up to 6 months15

As the first line of treatment for osteoarthritis knee pain, doctors commonly recommend over-the-counter painkillers, like acetaminophen, aspirin, ibuprofen, or naproxen. Steroid injections are a secondary therapy, recommended if a patient isn’t getting adequate relief with oral painkillers.

Unfortunately, these medications do nothing to improve knee mobility and strength. Nor do they protect joints from wear-and-tear damage that can lead to joint replacement surgery sooner rather than later. The pain relief these medications provide also doesn’t last long, requiring repeated doses that can increase the risk of side effects such as gastrointestinal bleeding or reduced kidney function.

Hyaluronic acid therapies directly target osteoarthritis in the knee joint. These therapies replenish the shock-absorbing properties of the lost synovial fluid, improving cartilage integrity and safely relieving knee pain for up to 6 months.15
