When you have osteoarthritis, there may not be enough natural hyaluron in the joint, and the quality of that hyaluron may be poorer than normal. Cingal is used to supplement hyaluron to the knee joint. Cingal also contains a steroid which provides fast-acting pain relief by reducing inflammation, while the hyaluronic acid provides long-lasting pain relief. Cingal is given in a single shot directly into the knee joint.
How can Cingal Provide Relief From Osteoarthritis Knee Pain?
Cingal is the first single-injection treatment that quickly relieves your osteoarthritis knee pain while providing sustained pain reduction. It is used for patients who do not get adequate pain relief from simple pain relievers or from physical therapy.
Cingal combines the benefits of a trusted anti-inflammatory to relieve osteoarthritis knee pain. The anti-inflammatory component offers fast pain relief generally beginning 24 hours after administration and the hyaluronic acid offers effective osteoarthritis pain relief for 6 months or more.
Knee pain due to osteoarthritis (OA) can impact your lifestyle and daily activities. The most widespread form of arthritis, osteoarthritis, affects more that 1 in 10 Singapore citizens, with increasing trends of premature osteoarthritis from sporting injuries.
