London, UK Arthrosamid For Knee Flexibility & Stiffness, Private Clinic Update

MSK Doctors (0330-001-0048), a specialty clinic offering regenerative medicine and advanced surgical procedures, has updated its Arthrosamid treatment options for clients suffering from knee pain or stiffness, allowing them to self-schedule appointments with no GP referral and no waiting list.

The MSK Doctors private clinic is now able to offer Arthrosamid treatments, which use a novel single-injection treatment method to provide long-lasting relief for pain and stiffness caused by osteoarthritis or other conditions affecting the knees. Clients can self-schedule their appointments online or over the phone with no GP referral, for consultation, diagnosis, or treatment.

While knee injection treatments have become common for conditions such as osteoarthritis, traditional treatments are known to only provide pain relief for several weeks or months. However, the new Arthrosamid treatment has been proven effective in clinical trials for periods of up to 2 years⁽¹⁾, offering relief from pain and stiffness, without causing any major side effects.

Arthrosamid has been in clinical trials for over 20 years and has been proven to be both safe and effective, although researchers are still not entirely sure how long its positive effects can last. This is because, while a traditional knee injection uses biocompatible materials that are eventually absorbed by the body, Arthrosamid takes the opposite approach, with materials that cannot be easily absorbed.

Although Arthrosamid has been shown to last longer than traditional treatments, it may also offer users improved flexibility and movement, as suggested by another recent trial. When compared directly to traditional knee injections, researchers found that Arthrosamid also provides improved results in terms of pain reduction, stiffness, and physical function⁽²⁾.

However, patients should be aware that the treatment does carry the risk of minor and temporary side effects. The most commonly reported side effects include temporary pain, swelling, or redness at the injection site, which typically fades within a few hours or days after the treatment.

The MSK Doctors knee and hip specialist, Prof. Paul Lee, has compiled a systematic review of Arthrosamid, and how it compares to traditional treatment options. This review is available to all clients on the clinic’s website and covers four important areas: effectiveness, safety, cost, and patient suitability.
