Cingal® is a product that combines the long-term pain relief of a viscosupplement (hyaluronic acid) with the quick pain relief of a corticosteroid. Its unique formula is designed to provide the benefits of both substances in a single injection. The corticosteroid is present at a high concentration in the Cingal® formula, and this high concentration allows the injection to be used to treat severe pain quickly. The viscosupplement combine with the corticosteroid can be injected in the articulation like the knee and be used to treat chronic pain conditions, such as osteoarthritis. One single injection can provide relief within a week and can last up to 6 months.
Hyaluronic acid: Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the synovial fluid of the knee joint. Viscosupplementation, or the injection of hyaluronic acid into the joint, is thought to lubricate the cartilage (much as oil lubricates an engine), thereby reducing pain for long-term relief.
Corticosteroid: This powerful ingredient help relieve pain by reducing swelling in the joint for rapid relief. It works by blocking the action of chemicals in the body that cause inflammation. For the temporary relief of joint pain caused by arthritis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, corticosteroids is being be used.
