Osteoarthritis (OA), a degenerative disease, is the most common form of arthritis and affects the joints in the body – mainly the hips, knees hands and spine.
In healthy joints, cartilage (the protective material covering the ends of joints) acts as a shock absorber when weight is put on the joint.
Healthy cartilage is covered by a thin layer of synovial fluid, composed mainly of Hyaluronic Acid that lubricates the cartilage during movement.
OA is caused by the breakdown of cartilage. With OA, there is also a decrease in the quantity and/or the quality of hyaluronic acid in the joint. Over time the cartilage may wear down and the bones may form bumps called spurs, or it may wear away completely causing the bones to rub together causing pain, deformity and loss of mobility.
RheoVital is a clear gel that is injected by your doctor directly into the joint, replacing the damaged synovial fluid (called viscosupplementation therapy).
While there is no cure for OA, RheoVital is an effective treatment to manage the pain associated with OA.
RheoVital is comprised of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which acts to replace the HA that is weakened or lost in the joint. Because the HA in RheoVital is modified (cross-linked) to be more durable than other OA products only one treatment is required. Your first visit to the doctor will be your only visit!
RheoVital will lubricate the cartilage, providing the joint with a ‘cushion’ of HA, thereby alleviating pain, improving mobility, and restoring the joint’s ability to absorb shocks.
RheoVital is a non-surgical treatment that requires little down time.
RheoVital is not a drug and therefore it should not interfere with any medication that you may currently be on.
Unlike oral medications, which have higher potential side effects and are slower to act, because they must first be broken down by your digestive system, RheoVital is a targeted treatment that safely and effectively delivers relief of pain associated with OA.
RheoVital can provide up to 12 months of pain relief in OA of the knee.
RheoVital can alleviate the pain associated with OA, improve mobility and provide a better quality of life.
Unlike other products that require 4-6 visits and multiple injections, only one treatment of RheoVital is required.
