Cingal is a powerful treatment for the pain of osteoarthritis. It is the first approved combination of viscosupplement that combines proven benefits of a proprietary hyaluronic acid (HA) with a well-established steroid to provide fast acting and long-lasting pain relief from osteoarthritis (OA). When you have osteoarthritis, there may not be enough natural hyaluronan in the joint, and the quality of that hyaluronan may be poorer than normal.
Cingal is given in one single injection directly into the knee joint. The product proves to last up to 6 months on relief of the symptoms of osteoarthritis, and to treat inflammation.
Cingal is used to supplement hyaluronan to the knee joint. Cingal also contains a steroid, “triamcinolone hexacetonide”, which provides both short-term and long-lasting pain relief by reducing inflammation, while the hyaluronan component provides long-lasting pain relief.
