Ostenil Plus

If you’re experiencing joint pain, you may be exploring various treatment options to help alleviate your discomfort and improve your quality of life. One such option is Ostenil Plus injections. This article aims to provide you with information on the benefits, considerations, and indications of Ostenil Plus injections so you can make an informed decision about whether this treatment may be suitable for you.

What are Ostenil Plus injections?

Ostenil Plus injections are a type of hyaluronic acid (HA) therapy, also known as viscosupplementation. These injections involve administering a solution of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body, directly into the joint. The primary function of HA is to lubricate the joints and act as a shock absorber, allowing for smooth movement and reducing pain. Ostenil Plus injections are used to treat various joint-related conditions, particularly osteoarthritis. The Cochrane Review is an internationally recognized standard in evidence-based healthcare, investigating the effect of therapeutic interventions and treatments. According to their review, hyaluronic acid (HA) is a viable treatment option for mild to moderate knee osteoarthritis, supported by strong evidence (read the full review here).


Benefits of Ostenil Plus injections

  1. Pain relief: Ostenil Plus injections can provide significant pain relief for patients with joint pain caused by reduced joint lubrication and cartilage wear. Many patients experience a noticeable decrease in pain within a few weeks of the injection.
  2. Improved mobility: By enhancing joint lubrication and cushioning, Ostenil Plus injections can help improve joint function and mobility, allowing patients to participate in daily activities with greater ease.
  3. Non-surgical option: For patients looking to avoid or delay surgery, Ostenil Plus injections can serve as a non-invasive alternative to help manage symptoms.
  4. Minimal side effects: Ostenil Plus injections are generally well-tolerated, with most patients experiencing few side effects.




  1. Temporary relief: While Ostenil Plus injections can provide significant pain relief, they are not a permanent solution. The duration of pain relief varies among patients and may last anywhere from a few months to over a year.
  2. Multiple injections: Depending on the severity of the condition and individual factors, patients may require multiple injections to achieve optimal results. Treatment often consists of a series of injections spaced out over several weeks.
  3. Side effects: Some patients may experience side effects from the injection, including mild pain, swelling, or redness at the injection site. These side effects are typically short-lived and resolve on their own within a few days.
  4. Not effective for all patients: Ostenil Plus injections may not provide the desired level of pain relief for all patients, and effectiveness can vary based on the underlying condition and individual factors.



Indications and conditions treated

Ostenil Plus injections are primarily indicated for patients experiencing joint pain and reduced joint function due to conditions such as:

Osteoarthritis: A degenerative joint condition where the cartilage that cushions the joints wears down over time, causing pain, stiffness, and inflammation. Ostenil Plus injections can help restore some of the lost joint lubrication and cushioning, providing relief from pain and improving joint function.



Ostenil Plus injections can offer significant pain relief and improved mobility for patients experiencing joint pain due to conditions such as osteoarthritis. While they are not a permanent solution, they can provide temporary relief and improve the quality of life. It is essential to discuss the potential benefits, considerations, and risks with your healthcare provider to determine if Ostenil Plus injections are the right treatment option for you.
