Take care of your joint health through hyaluronic acid infiltrations!
What are intra-articular infiltrations with hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the synovial fluid, which is secreted by the synovial membrane, located in the joints and synovial sheaths of the tendons. The role of synovial fluid is to lubricate, reduce mechanical friction, absorb shocks and facilitate fluid movement.
The amount of synovial fluid can decrease due to several factors: overload, aging, joint degradation, tendon inflammation.
Osteoarthritis is a degradation of the articular cartilage and can occur in any joint that has suffered a high degree of wear: knee, shoulder, hip.
