What is Osteoarthritis?
Sometimes called degenerative joint disease or “wear and tear” arthritis, osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common chronic condition of the joints.
Osteoarthritis develops when cartilage deteriorates within joints as a consequence of ageing, overuse from running or other high impact past-times. This deterioration leads to bone friction, inflammation and joint pain. As time goes on and this persists, the rate at which cartilage is destroyed surpasses the rate at which the cells responsible for producing new cartilage can repair the damage. A result of cartilage loss, friction and pressure within the joint can lead to increased joint pain and a decrease in function and mobility.
Hyaluronic acid is found naturally within the joints, particularly within the cartilage and the synovial fluid that lubricates and cushions joints to keep them working smoothly. In osteoarthritis, hyaluronic acid levels decrease within the joint fluid, impairing its ability to protect joints. Hyaluronic acid may also help reduce pain caused by osteoarthritis by helping to reduce friction itself.
A double-blind, placebo-controlled study published in The Scientific World Journal investigated the efficacy of oral hyaluronic acid administration for osteoarthritis in knee joints. The study was carried out over a 12-month period and subjects were administered hyaluronic acid daily in conjunction with quadricep strength training. Researchers found a significant improvement in symptoms of osteoarthritis in the hyaluronic acid group indicating beneficial effects with hyaluronic acid treatment.
