Welcome to Bodysym
Ostenil® Plus is a treatment for the symptoms of Osteoarthritis. It can be used in the knee, or in any other joints in the body that are classified as ‘synovial’
What is Ostenil® Plus, and how does it work?
Ostenil® Plus is a solution containing hyaluronic acid. It is injected into the space in the joint that contains synovial fluid and works by restoring the normal balance between the production and breakdown of hyaluronic acid. This effect of Ostenil® Plus means that it can decrease pain and stiffness and inprove the other symptoms of osteoarthritis.
The hyaluronic acid in Osetnil® Plus is very pure and is manufactured using a process called fermentation. It contains no animal proteins, which means that it is very unlikely to cause an allergic reaction. The addition of Mannitol (a simple sugar derivative) to Ostenil® Plus allows the hyaluronic acid to work for longer and more efficiently in the joint, enabling effective symptom reduction with a single injection.
Ostenil® Plus has been extensively tested, and has not been found to cause any side effects.
The exact make-up of the hyaluronic acid in Ostenil® Plus has been carefully chosen so that it is effective as possible in treating osteoarthritis.
What can I expect if I decide to have treatment with Ostenil® Plus?
If you decide to have treatment with Ostenil® Plus, it will be injected directly into the joint affected by osteoarthritis. You may have to have an initial Xray to ascertain a general level of osteoarthritis in the joint.
You may not notice any benefit immediately after your injection, but will generally experience a reduction in pain and stiffness. The improvement in your symptoms is likely to persist for several months, depending on the progression of the degenerative change in the joint being treated.
When the effects of your Ostenil® Plus injection begin to wear off, you can safely choose to have another injection if your clinician agrees it is appropriate. Thereafter, you can continue with Ostenil® Plus therapy whenever necessary.
