Hyalgan is a non-surgical, non-pharmacologic therapy for knee osteoarthritis. Hyalgan therapy can help relieve your pain, improve your mobility, and get you back to your normal activities. Hyalgan uses hyaluronan,a natural substance found in the fluids of healthy joints that separates the cartilage. In the knee joint, hyaluronan acts like a lubricant and a cushion in the knee. This treatment is also known as Viscosupplementation Therapy
The goal of Hyalgan is to supplement poor-quality hyaluronan in your painful knee with additional highly purified hyaluronan. Hyalgan therapy is an injectable solution made from highly purified sodium hyaluronate (also known as hyaluronic acid [HA]) that is extracted from rooster combs. These are harvested from roosters that have been certified as suitable for human consumption via pre- and post-mortem veterinary inspection. You may be asked to avoid strenuous activities for a couple of days following the injection. Most patients experience little or no discomfort during the injection. If you’re concerned about the injection, talk to your practitioner about ways to reduce any mild pain that may occur.
