DUROLANE is a single-injection treatment designed to provide powerful and lasting pain relief when you are suffering from pain due to osteoarthritis (OA).
What is OA?
OA is often referred to as “degenerative joint disease”, which usually develops slowly over time. Gradually, cartilage on the surface of the joint starts to get damaged and wears away. This leads to pain and stiffness in the joint.
What is Hyaluronic Acid (HA)?
It is a component of synovial fluid (joint fluid). The synovial fluid allows joint to move easily and freely while absorbing the shock of daily activity. HA helps to protect bones and other joint tissues from injury and disease.
How does DUROLANE work?
DUROLANE is HA, which acts like a lubricant and shock absorber in the synovial fluid. A DUROLANE injection may cushion your joint and manage your symptoms.
What are the benefits of DUROLANE?
DUROLANE reduces joint pain for up to 6 months, and improves physical activity and quality of life of OA patients in as early as 2 weeks, for up to 24 weeks.
Is DUROLANE right for me?
If you are an OA patient who is not getting enough pain relief from oral medications, physical therapy, or steroids, DUROLANE might be right for you.
Is there any reason why I couldn’t have a DUROLANE injection? You should not use DUROLANE if you have infections or skin disease at the injection site. DUROLANE has not been tested in pregnant or lactating women, or children.
