Reducing Pain Improving Mobility

Ostenil injections provide effective pain relief for individuals with knee osteoarthritis. By restoring hyaluronic acid balance in the joint, they alleviate pain and enhance knee function and lubrication.


Ostenil® Plus, a hyaluronic acid solution, is injected into the joint’s synovial fluid space to restore the balance of hyaluronic acid breakdown and production, alleviating pain and stiffness associated with osteoarthritis. Manufactured with high purity through fermentation, it’s devoid of animal proteins, reducing the risk of allergic reactions. Mannitol, a sugar derivative, extends its efficacy within the joint, offering effective symptom relief with a single injection. Extensively tested, Ostenil® Plus has shown no serious side effects, tailored for maximum effectiveness in osteoarthritis treatment.

How does Ostenil Plus function?

Administered via ultrasound guided injection into the synovial fluid-filled space within the joint, this viscosupplement  aims to recalibrate the equilibrium between hyaluronic acid breakdown and production. Consequently, Ostenil Plus endeavors to alleviate joint pain and stiffness.

The hyaluronic acid within Ostenil Plus is of high purity, manufactured through fermentation, and devoid of animal proteins, thus minimizing the risk of allergic reactions. Additionally, the incorporation of mannitol, a sugar derivative, extends the efficacy and duration of hyaluronic acid action within the joint.

Extensive testing has shown that Ostenil Plus does not induce any significant adverse reactions. Furthermore, as it lacks animal proteins, the likelihood of triggering an allergic response is minimal. Like with any injections, there exists a slight risk of infection, and occasional post-injection discomfort at the site may persist for a day or two.

Ostenil injections have become increasingly popular among athletes, particularly football players, who seek relief from joint discomfort resulting from intense physical exertion.

Featuring hyaluronic acid as its primary ingredient, these injections offer enhanced joint lubrication and cushioning, thereby reducing friction, easing pain, and improving mobility to enhance performance on the field.

The non-invasive nature and minimal side effects of Ostenil make it an appealing option for athletes aiming to preserve joint health and quickly return to their training and competitive activities.

Implementing injury prevention measures such as warm-up routines, conditioning exercises, and recovery strategies further bolster joint health and overall athletic prowess.

Ostenil is commonly manufactured through a method referred to as bacterial fermentation.

In this process, specific bacterial strains, typically Streptococcus zooepidemicus, are chosen for their capacity to generate hyaluronic acid. These bacteria are cultivated in a suitable growth medium that contains carbohydrates like glucose or corn syrup, serving as a carbon source. Through fermentation, the bacteria produce hyaluronic acid as a byproduct of their metabolic processes.

The resulting sodium hyaluronate can then be utilized in orthopedic applications, such as treating conditions like Osteoarthritis, Knee Meniscus issues, as well as Shoulder or Hip Labral tears.

It’s also important to stop smoking cigarettes and e-cigarettes before and after the procedure because they can disrupt the healing process.
