Hyalgan is an injection solution that is recommended for use in musculoskeletal system pathology, in particular for mild to moderate knee joint arthritis. Hyaluronic acid has an astringent effect on the synovial fluid, which improves joint mobility and relieves pain. The use of hyalgan eliminates inflammatory processes in the joint epithelium and stimulates the formation of hyaluronic acid inside it.
Indications for use (instruction): Hyalgan
