Osteoarthritis is a condition that involves the wearing down of cartilage. In osteoarthritis, there may not be enough or a decrease in the quality of hyaluronan in the joint and surrounding tissues. Hyaluronan is a natural substance found in the body. It is present in particularly high amounts in joint tissues and in the fluid that fills the joints. The body’s own hyaluronan acts like a lubricant and a shock absorber in the joint. It is needed for the joint to function properly. Euflexxa is a gel-like, elastic, sterile product containing natural, highly purified hyaluronan. Euflexxa can relieve knee pain due to osteoarthritis.
