Ostenil Tendon Injections

Ostenil Tendon injections are a valuable treatment option for individuals suffering from tendon-related injuries and conditions such as rotator cuff injuries, plantarfasciitis, tennis elbow or Achilles tendinopathy.  Unlike a steroid injection which aims to reduce inflammation, Ostenil tendon injections consist of Hyaluronic Acid which is a sterile gel like substance which increases tendon gliding and reduce agglutinations (stickiness). Furthermore, hyaluronic acid also helps to

  • blocks pain receptors
  • hinders inflammatory mediators
  • is a good transport medium for nutrients

With their effectiveness and safety record, these injections have become a trusted treatment choice among professionals in the field. For individuals struggling with tendon-related issues, OStenil Tendon injections offer a therapeutic intervention that focuses on expedited recovery and long-term well-being.

Frequently asked questions

Tendinopathy is a disease of the tendon caused by wear and tear, overuse, or incorrect use of the joints in the body. Tendons connect muscle to bones, and although tendinopathy is generally non-inflammatory, it can lead to pain and reduced mobility.

Tendons transmit the power of the muscles onto the bones. This often causes a strong leverage effect and strains the tendons by a power many times higher than the actual body weight. Prolonged activity, repetitive movements or incorrect load bearing can all lead to irritation and inflammation, combined with pain and reduced mobility. Treatments are usually a lengthy process.

 The most well-known tendons are the Achilles tendon (the largest tendon in the human body found at the heel), the biceps tendon, the tendons in the hand, and the elbow tendon. Many tendons can be felt quite easily and their anatomical function clearly seen.

Wherever muscle power is directed around a corner to reach  the intended bone, the human body uses tendon sheaths. These are filled with a fluid very similar to synovial joint fluid and can be considered as protective friction bearings, helping guard the tendon from mechanical stress as it glides across bony structures. When healthy, the tendon sheaths ensure a smooth gliding of the tendon around the corner. But the stress at this point is particularly high, which can cause tendinopathy in the tendon sheath.

The treatment itself takes very little time. Your  Physiotherapist will give you an injection into the area around the most damaged part of the affected tendon, In the case of tendons within a tendon sheath, the clinician will inject OSTENIL® TENDON into the tendon sheath In either case, the lubricant will be distributed through natural movement along the entire tendon.

A repeat injection, normally given a week after the first, may be required in more established and persistent tendon disease.

In studies done in Germany the treatment scheme described above has proved to be effective and safe. In most cases there is a quick and long-lasting improvement of joint function. Several tendons may be treated at the same time. If symptoms return the treatment can be repeated.

OSTENIL® TENDON was developed with substantial cooperation of German orthopaedic and trauma surgeons, and is CE certified as a medical device.
