Main indications of Optivisc M
This excellent quality medical product is particularly suitable for patients suffering from mild-to-moderate osteoarthritis. Also known as OA, this condition is characterized by various functional impairments, joint pain, cracking, swelling, stiffness and even with increasingly limited mobility in the articulator area. Optivisc M is a three-injection viscosupplement that can improve the condition and eliminate or, at the very least, reduce many of the above-listed symptoms for up to half a year. The company that produces it, Biotech Healthcare Group, promotes it mainly as a minimally-invasive therapy for knee osteoarthritis. This is due to the fact that the risk-free Hyaluronic Acid which it contains effectively lubricates, protects and soothes knee joints.
What does the treatment involve?
This is one of the fastest, safest and most effective OA therapies in existence today. It does not require scalpels, extensive recovery time and it is practically pain-free. The product is simply injected into the joints and there, the purified HA in it forms a new protective layer that swiftly minimizes joint pain and improves shock-absorption. The Hyaluronic Acid in this supplement gradually dissolves which is why patients will need to undergo repeat treatments every 6 months to prolong its effects.
