Moving painlessly

Injections of hyaluronic acid into the joints


Injections of hyaluronic acid are used as a treatment for problems with the knee, such as knee osteoarthritis. But it can also be used for other joints and various joint problems and is not only for osteoarthritis.

The goal of this treatment is to reduce pain and allow the joint to move more smoothly. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in our bodies, especially in our cartilage (the smooth tissue that covers our joints). It plays an important role in lubricating and protecting our joints.


When we suffer from knee osteoarthritis or other joint problems, cartilage can become damaged, causing the joint to move less smoothly and feel painful. Hyaluronic acid injections can help protect the cartilage from further wear and tear and sometimes even stimulate the building of new cartilage. In addition, hyaluronic acid can help reduce inflammation in the joint, reducing pain and swelling.


The effect of this treatment can last for several months, but rarely longer than 6 to 8 months after treatment. The treatment can slow the development of osteoarthritis, but unfortunately Hyaluronic injections cannot completely cure the condition.


The treatment itself is quite simple. A doctor will place an injection of Hyaluronic Acid directly into the affected joint. This can sometimes be a little uncomfortable, but it usually doesn't take long. After the injection, it may take some time before you feel the full effect. Some people notice improvement immediately, while others may take a little longer.


It is important to remember that this treatment is not suitable for everyone and the effect may vary from person to person. If you suffer from joint pain or suspect that you have osteoarthritis, it is wise to consult your doctor and, if necessary, ask for a referral letter to Flexclinics. Together we can then decide which treatment best suits your specific situation.
