HYALGAN® is a solution that contains a natural substance called hyaluronate. Hyaluronate is normally found in the fluid that lubricates and cushions your knee joint. HYALGAN is injected into your knee to relieve pain, and is a treatment option for people who do not get adequate pain relief from simple painkillers (like Tylenol® or Advil®) or from exercise and physical therapy. HYALGAN injections can be used in addition to prescription pain relievers (like Celebrex®).
How HYALGAN Injections Work
HYALGAN is injected directly into your knee by your health care provider. It is a 5-injection regimen given at weekly intervals that provides long-lasting pain relief for up to 6 months. Some patients get benefits with 3 injections given at weekly intervals.* Individual results may vary, but HYALGAN has shown to relieve knee pain for up to 6 months.
