Articular cartilage deterioration comes along with pain attacks and limited mobility and therefore leads to a massive loss of quality of life.
Aside of an oral medicinal arthrosis therapy, local anti-inflammatory drugs can be inserted into the articular cavity. This procedure leads to a significant reduction of the pain attacks’ intensity and duration.
Further, cartilage cures can be carried out. For this purpose, hyaluronic acid is inserted into the joint. Hyaluronic acid is an autologous (body’s own) substance that increases the cartilage’s gliding ability and elasticity and therefore reduces pain.
