How it works:
Hyaluronic acid is a component of the synovial fluid that provides viscosity, which means it facilitates lubrication and shock absorption.
When the synovial fluid gets thinner and loses viscosity, it can no longer effectively protect the cartilaginous layer and the bones, which results in abrasions and joint pain.
Hyaluronic is acid is injected directly into the joint and supplements the pathologically altered synovial fluid within the joint cavity.
In addition to pain management, this therapy is targeted at improving the joint mobility and protecting the cartilage.
