Description

Supartz 

Buy Supartz for your patients who suffer from osteoarthritis. OA is the most prevalent type of arthritis, and causes quite a lot of pain for patients diagnosed with it. Supartz is a great solution that can give relief for those who have it.

Who are the best candidates?

This solution is usually recommended to patients that are still suffering from osteoarthritis pain despite already trying other medications and treatments.

Areas targeted with Supartz

This product specifically targets the knees

How does Supartz work?

Supartz makes use of sodium hyaluronate in order to lessen the friction occurring in between patients’ joints. This friction is the one causing the degradation of the bone, leading to the chronic pain experienced by osteoarthritis patients. The solution is very similar to the fluid that surrounds the joints in the joints called synovial fluid. The injected solution will then act as additional fluid to ensure as little friction happens as possible, and will allow patients to continue normal day-to-day activities without the hindrance from pain.

Treatment Details

Supartz must only be injected or applied to a patient by a trained medical professional. It is usually given once a week for around three to five weeks, and is injected directly into the knee joint. To lower the probability of swelling and pain, the patient is recommended to rest the knee, or even apply ice to the targeted knee for a little while after the injection.

How long does Supartz last?

The length will vary depending on the physiology and lifestyle of the patient, but on average this treatment can last for around 9 to 12 months.

Safety Information

Patients should not make use of Supartz if they are allergic to any of the components, and is also not approved for use on patients below 21 years old. Patients should inform the doctor if they have ever experienced circulation problems or blood clots, or if they have an allergy to feathers, birds, or egg products. To be cautious, patients should also inform the doctor if they are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Recovery Time 

Patients are advised to not stand or walk around for more than 1 hour for at least a few days after injection. They should also not perform any rigorous or high impact activities such as sprinting or sports.
