Frequently asked questions

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and is due to damage to the ‘synovial joints’. A synovial joint is a joint which is encased in a capsule filled with synovial fluid, this fluid acts as a lubricant and shock absorber for the joints in the body.

In Osteoarthritis the process of the breakdown and replacement of this very important fluid becomes disrupted so break down happens faster than production. This leads to the cartilage within the joint wearing away which in turn leads to the main symptoms of arthritis, which are joint pain, swelling and stiffness.

An Ostenil injection performed by a professional will relieve pain, reduce stiffness and improve joint mobility, it also reduces inflammation in the afflicted joint.

The main component of Synovial fluid is a substance called ‘Hyaluronic Acid’. Research has now lead to the manufacture of an almost identical product called ‘Ostenil’. The treatment involves injecting this substance directly into the joint or soft tissue.

This acts as an immediate lubricant and shock-absorber to immediately decrease pain and stiffness in the joint. More importantly it stimulates the cells that produce Synovial fluid in the joints and helps restore the normal balance of breakdown and production to give long lasting pain relief.

Despite supporting scientific evidence these joint pain injections are not currently available on the NHS. They are being done in ever increasing numbers within the private sector when people hear the success stories of others and how often they are used in the treatment of professional sports players. The research shows that the effects of the injection typically last from 9 – 12 months.

The ‘Cochrane review’ is recognised as the highest standard of evidence based medicine and this review states these injections are “effective treatments for mild to moderate osteoarthritis”.
Most patients notice an immediate difference but some advise it took a few days or occasionally weeks to notice an improvement. There are a very small amount of patients who advise they have not had an improvement.
These injections will help all osteoarthritic synovial joints and many soft tissue conditions that also rely on the production of synovial fluid. The most common conditions for this treatment are: –
There are virtually no side effects with these injections but as with any injection there is a small risk of infection and some patients state increased pain for one or two days after the injection.
Ostenil is most certainly not a steroid, it is an artificial copy of the naturally occurring joint lubricant called synovial fluid.
The overwhelming majority of injections of either Ostenil or Steroid are not painful if done by a well trained injection therapist. There is of course the pain of the needle going into the skin but this is usually the only pain felt by the patient. This is usually to their surprise and most advise it was much less painful than they were anticipating.
They are very safe as the likelihood of any reaction is considerably less than with a steroid injection.
There are virtually no side effects though of course, as with any injection, there is a very small possibility of infection, post- injection flare, bruising, bleeding and pain during and following the injection.
Our cost per injection is £250. Discounts will be available on additional joint injections within the same treatment session. Your clinician will discuss with you how many injections you may require.
