Ostensil Plus is an injection used to treat symptoms of osteoarthritis, reducing associated pain and increasing mobility.
It is injected into the space in the joint that contains synovial fluid and works by restoring the normal balance between the breakdown and production of hyaluronic acid. Lubricating the knee or other stiff joints, such as the hip, it improves shock absorption and reduces mechanical overload of the joint.
Caused by ageing, heavy lifting, sports, being overweight and more.

Below we have answered frequently asked questions. But, get in touch if you require any further information.
Ostenil Plus treats osteoarthritis, a degenerative disease that causes pain and stiffness in the joints.
A single injection containing the solution is put directly into the joint affected by osteoarthritis. Ostenil Plus is a clear medicine which contains hyaluronate, a pure animal-free substance that is completely bio-compatible and imitates the lubricant in the knee joint. Highly purified sodium hyaluronate can improve the viscoelastic properties of synovial fluid within the knee joint. This improves its lubricating and shock absorbing functions and reduces pain.
This treatment must be administered by a qualified clinician such as ourselves here at Physio Wolverhampton.
Ostenil Plus can be used in any synovial joint such as the knee, hip or shoulder joints. It is also suitable for the ankle, elbow and some smaller joints.
Yes. It does not contain any animal proteins.
It is unlikely you will notice the benefits of the treatment straight away, but you should gradually begin to feel a reduction in pain and stiffness over the following few weeks.
The improvement of your symptoms should last between 12-24 months.
Redness and swelling, as well as pain and increased sensation of heat can be felt at the area of injection at the knee point. An ice pack should be applied to the knee after to increase blood flow to the area and significantly increase the wellbeing of the site.
Individuals who sensitive or have known allergies to drugs should seek medical advice before taking Ostenil. Ostenil should be avoided if there are any infections at the knee joint. Pregnant women and breast-feeding mothers should avoid using Ostenil as well as children and anyone with rheumatoid arthritis or Brechterew disease (also known as, Marie Strumpell disease, rheumatoid spondylitis and ankylosing spondylitis).
