How Cingal Works
Osteoarthritis typically results in lower concentrations of hyaluronic acid in the synovial fluid, reducing its viscosity and elasticity. Cingal addresses this by supplementing the natural hyaluronan in the joint, while its corticosteroid component, triamcinolone hexacetonide, offers short-term and lasting pain relief by reducing inflammation. This dual action makes Cingal particularly effective for joints such as the knees, hips, ankles, spine (neck and lower back), hands (fingers and thumbs), and shoulders.
The Advantages of Cingal Injections
Cingal injections provide immediate pain relief and comfort, making them an excellent choice for managing osteoarthritis symptoms. More than 80% of individuals over 50 years old show some signs of osteoarthritis, and Cingal offers a non-surgical option that can significantly improve quality of life.
