Understanding Orthopedic Injectables

Understanding Orthopedic Injectables

There are no products that offer more relief to people suffering from musculoskeletal conditions than orthopedic injectables. There are many orthopedic products on the market that help people all over the world live an active, pain free life. Many of these products provide long term pain relief for between six and nine months - without surgery.

What are Orthopedic Injectables and What do They Treat?

Orthopedic injectables are injections designed to lubricate the joints between a patient’s bones, such as in the knee. These products are an excellent alternative for patients who prefer to avoid orthopedic surgery, or the overuse of pain medications made necessary by conditions like osteoarthritis. While osteoarthritis is common among older people, it is a condition that often occurs after injury or repetitive motion. Osteoarthritis has been shown to be common in obese patients, as there is more pressure on their joints during repetitive movement. The condition generally worsens over time.  

Orthopedic Treatments

Available treatments for orthopedic conditions include surgery, exercise, physiotherapy, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) and cortisone injections. One of the most popular treatment options available, orthopedic injectables are an excellent way to reduce the pain of movement in joints long term.

These injectables often comprise ingredients already found in the human body, such as hyaluronic acid, which is a natural lubricant. People who have osteoarthritis generally have a smaller concentration of hyaluronic acid in their joints than people who do not have the condition. Many of today’s orthopedic injectables, also called viscosupplements, are formulated to replace depleted hyaluronic acid. Knowing which products are out there is a step toward finding relief for the pain of osteoarthritis.
