Osteoarthritis is a condition that orthopedists often have to treat. Its most common form is knee osteoarthritis. The health issue presents itself, especially in its more extreme forms with bone deformation and cartilage degradation, which tend to progress over time. Treatment can often be difficult and involve either strong medication or even surgery. Optivisc Single offers a way to often avoid such extreme measures of knee treatment. But how?
What makes Optivisc Single effective?
Two words – Hyaluronic acid. This substance is naturally occurring in the human body and plays an important role in the hydration processes in the skin. It is also widely used in both the medical and beauty industry, for its many beneficial properties. Probably the most impressive is the ability to retain up to 500 times its own weight in water. This makes it the perfect base ingredient for a gel with superior viscosity and flowability, to boost the effect of the Synovial fluid.
What sets apart Optivisc Single from the other products in the Biotech range for viscosupplements for knee osteoarthritis treatment is the much higher levels of Hyaluronic acid. A box of the product comes with a syringe, pre-filled with 3ml of the gel with a HA concentration of 90mg. This not only helps the Synovial fluid balance to be more easily restored, thus reducing inflammation, pain and improving mobility, but also helps to form a stronger protective layer over the joints which remains in place for up to 12 months.
