What is DUROLANE?
DUROLANE is an injection treatment designed to relieve pain and increase mobility in an osteoarthritic joint.
How does it work?
DUROLANE is a natural, safe and highly concentrated form of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a molecule found in the human body that is an important component of joint fluid (joint fluid helps to protect the bones and allow for mobility). During the progression of osteoarthritis (OA), the HA in the joint tissues is broken down faster than it is replaced. The DUROLANE injection brings HA back into the joint.
How long does it last?
DUROLANE usually relieves pain and restores function for upwards of six months.
