What Are Ostenil Injections?


Ostenil Plus is a specialised solution that contains hyaluronic acid, developed specifically for the treatment of osteoarthritis. It can be injected into joints, such as the knee, to reduce pain and stiffness and improve other osteoarthritis symptoms.

This solution has a higher concentration of sodium hyaluronate (hyaluronic acid) than standard Ostenil and also includes mannitol. It offers the option to reduce the number of injections required to just one per treatment cycle. Ostenil Plus is now the preferred choice over Ostenil in most clinics due to its cost-effectiveness.












How Ostenil Injections Can Benefit You?


Ostenil injections serve as a valuable component of treatment plans for various conditions, including:


  • Osteoarthritis: Ostenil is often used to provide pain relief and improve joint function in individuals with knee osteoarthritis, a condition characterized by the degeneration of joint cartilage.

Foot and Ankle:

  • Plantar Fasciitis: Ostenil injections can help reduce inflammation and alleviate pain associated with plantar fasciitis, a condition that causes heel pain.

  • Morton's Neuroma: For Morton's neuroma, Ostenil injections may be used to relieve pain associated with the thickening of tissue around the nerves in the foot.

  • Ligament Injuries: Ostenil can be considered for ligament injuries or damage in the foot or ankle, aiding in pain relief and promoting recovery.


How Ostenil Injections Work


Ostenil improves synovial joint health by increasing the concentration of hyaluronic acid within the synovial fluid. This augmentation enhances joint lubrication, reducing friction and effectively alleviating pain and stiffness. Moreover, the heightened presence of hyaluronic acid serves to safeguard and nourish the joint's cartilage, ensuring its integrity and promoting greater joint function, which leads to improved comfort and mobility. This is particularly beneficial in conditions like osteoarthritis and other joint-related issues.


Benefits of Ostenil Injections


Utilising steroid injections in podiatry offers several advantages:

    • Pain Relief: Ostenil injections effectively alleviate joint pain and discomfort, providing relief for individuals with conditions like osteoarthritis.

    • Improved Joint Lubrication: These injections enhance joint lubrication, reducing friction between joint surfaces and improving overall joint function.

    • Enhanced Mobility: Ostenil injections can lead to increased joint mobility, making it easier for individuals to move and carry out daily activities.

    • Long-Lasting Effects: The benefits of Ostenil injections are typically long-lasting, providing extended relief from joint pain and stiffness.

    • Minimized Side Effects: Ostenil injections are well-tolerated and generally result in fewer side effects compared to some other treatment options, such as oral medications.
