it is a form of hyaluronic acid (HA) (sterile, viscoelastic, non-pyogenic )extracted from rooster comb. and is used to relieve joint pain due to ostearthritis. HA is a natural substance found in the fluid that surrounds a healthy joint. This fluid is called synovial fluid, and it helps cushion, lubricate, and protect the joint. In people with ostearthritis of the joint, the synovial fluid becomes thinner and less able to do its job.
it is similar to the HA found in healthy joints. It is a prescription, non-surgical therapy that your doctor can treat you with, during three to five office visits, one week apart. Hairont is designed to help patients who are not getting enough relief from non-prescription pain relievers (like Tylenol® or Advil®) or from exercise and physical therapy. When Hairont is injected into the joint, it helps replenish the HA in the joint and helps restore the ability of the synovial fluid to cushion, lubricate, and protect the joint. Unlike pills, It is localized therapy, which means it goes right to the source of pain and is not distributed throughout your entire body. Thousands of people with ostearthritis of the joint have experienced pain relief with Hairont.
Many patients are happy with the way that Hairont helps them to maintain an active lifestyle.
