Intra-Articular Injections, specifically hyaluronan injections, are emerging as a proposed treatment strategy for managing osteoarthritis (OA), particularly in the knee. These injections work by introducing hyaluronan, a component of the joint fluid, directly into the joint. Several types of hyaluronic acid injectables are available, like cross-linked HA, high molecular weight HA, etc. Other drugs that are often injected into the joints include steroids, NSAIDS, anaesthetic agents, polynucleotides, exosomes, growth factors, PRP, peptides, and collagen to name a few. The goal of this treatment is to improve joint function, slow disease progression and reduce pain associated with OA.
