How OPTIVISC Works?
OPTIVISC is the exogenous source of Hyaluronic Acid that restores Synovial balance in OA condition.The administration of OPTIVISC increases the viscosity of the Synovial fluid, restoring its lubricating, shock-absorbing and filtering properties. Furthermore, it re-establishes the protective HA coating over the inner surface of the joint and increases the scavenging of free radicals.
As a result of these changes,inflammation of the Synovium is reduced.It relieves symptoms of painand increase the mobility of joint
