How does Recosyn work?
Recosyn containing sodium hyaluronate can be used to treat degeneration in mobility or traumatic change in joints caused by osteoarthritis.
Recosyn replaces or substitutes lost synovial fluid between the joints to improve lubrication and mobility in patients, whilst reducing pain, so the joints are no longer rubbing against each other.
What’s in the box?
- 20mg/2ml sterile Hyaluronic acid

What are the benefits of Recosyn?
Recosyn’s essential properties can be used to :
- Lubricate the synovial compartment
- Act as a shock absorbent where cartilage has worn down
- Help treat degeneration in mobility
- Reduce pain
- Improve mobility
How is treatment carried out?
Recosyn is injected 3-5 times on a weekly basis into the synovial compartment. For more severe osteoarthritis treatment to treat more traumatic joints, 5 injections is normal.
The site of injection must be clean as well as infection free and disease free. Antiseptic can be used to present the site free from contamination. The skin must be dried prior to treatment. Clean the skin around the injection site with antiseptic and allow to dry before the injection is given. An ice pack should be applied following treatment to reduce swelling.
How long will results last for?
5 injections a week can help patients be symptom free for up to 6 months.
