What is ORTHOVISC® and what are the ingredients in ORTHOVISC®?
ORTHOVISC® is an injectable, clear, viscoelastic solution for relieving osteoarthritis (OA) pain. ORTHOVISC®’s main ingredient is ultra-pure, high molecular weight hyaluronic acid (HA), also known as hyaluronan, similar to the hyaluronic acid normally found in the synovial fluid of your patient’s joints. Unlike some forms of hyaluronic acid, ORTHOVISC® is made in the lab from bacterial fermentation, not from avian sources, which means it is less likely to cause a reaction when your patient has egg allergies or bird allergies.
When should my patients consider purchasing ORTHOVISC® injections?
Many doctors will prescribe viscosupplementation to their patients when other osteoarthritis therapies, such as anti-inflammatory and pain relief medication or physical therapy and exercise, no longer work. You can give your patients ORTHOVISC® injections as a last-resort to replace other therapies, or you can supplement other osteoarthritis therapies with ORTHOVISC® injections. Either way, ORTHOVISC® can help give your patients relief from osteoarthritis pain for about six months after their initial three or four weekly ORTHOVISC® injections.
Where on my patient’s body can ORTHOVISC® help give them pain relief?
Doctors and osteopaths like you most commonly inject ORTHOVISC® into your patient’s knee to replace lost synovial fluid and allow your patients to walk without pain. However you can also use ORTHOVISC® on other synovial joints on your patient’s body that are affected by osteoarthritis pain, such as their shoulder.
Why might my patients worry about ORTHOVISC® side effects?
If your patients are allergic to eggs or birds, they should avoid hyaluronic acid injections that are sourced from rooster combs. However, the hyaluronan in ORTHOVISC® is sourced from bacterial fermentation, so the chance of an allergic reaction is rare. When you give your patient an ORTHOVISC® injection, they may have a more common side effect such as bruising, swelling, redness, or a hot sensation at the injection site. Your patients could also feel achy or have temporary knee inflammation caused by the ORTHOVISC® injections.
How does ORTHOVISC® help free my patient from osteoarthritis pain?
Hyaluronic acid breaks down within your patient’s body as they age. As this cushioning layer is lost from their knee and other joints, the bones in your patient’s joints start to rub together, causing inflammation and pain. When you inject ORTHOVISC® into your patient’s knee joint or other joint, you give their bones the lubrication and cushioning they need to stop rubbing together, reducing pain. This pain relief can last up to around six months before your patients return to buy an ORTHOVISC® treatment.
