Movement without pain

Today, joint pain is a fairly common problem for both the elderly and young people. The treatment of degenerative diseases of the joints and spine is a complex section in medicine for a number of reasons. One of them is the invariably progressive nature of the causes of this pathology.

A number of methods for treating OA with conservative therapy have been proposed includig chondroprotectors wich are now wide spread drugs, and have shown efficiency and high safety.

When a patient begins to feel severe pain in the joints, this indicates that some kind of deformation is occurring in them. According to the form of the change, the doctor can determine what the patient is sick with and what is the form of the disease. To prevent the complete “death” of cartilage, as well as to nourish its cells, experts suggest taking interesting drugs such as chondroprotectors.

What is Mucosat?

Chondroitine sulphate intramuscular injections.

Chondroitine sulphate is one of a pharmacological group called “Chondroprotectors”.

Mucosat is an Effective drug to treat patients with degenerative diseases (Osteoarthritis) of the joints of the limbs and spine.

With its chondroprotective, anti inflammatory, analgesic effects Mucosat can relieve joints pain, improve their mobility and delayed the disease exacerbating.

Chondroprotectors are well tolerated, are an essential component in patients with osteoarthrosis treatment and are recommended byinternational
  • associations[ American College of Rheumatology (ACR)/Arthritis Foundation (AF) 2020.
  • European Anti-Rheumatic League (EULAR).
  • International Society for the Study of Osteoarthritis (OARSI).
  • Association of Russian Rheumatologists (ARR).
  • The European Society for Clinical and Economic Aspects of Osteoporosis, Osteoarthritis, and Musculoskeletal Diseases (ESCEO).

Normal Synovial joint

Every synovial joint is surrounded by an articular capsule that defines the joint cavity wich filled with the synovial fluid.The articulating surfaces of the bones are covered by a thin layer of articular cartilage. Ligaments support the joint by holding the bones together and resisting excess or abnormal joint motions.

Healthy cartilage in our joints makes it easier to move. It allows the bones to glide over each other with very little friction.

articular cartilage is built from a unique connective tissue, which consists of collagen and proteoglycan proteins. In proteoglycans, only 5% falls on protein molecules and 95% on glucosaminoglycan molecules, including chondroitine sulphate.

What is OSTEOARTHRITIS (OA)?

Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common joint disease and one of the leading causes of disability. OA is a cronic disorder of synovial joints. Pathology is characterized by degeneration of the articular cartilage wich is the primary defect , the formatiom of excess bone tissue along the edges of the joints (osteophytes), cysts formation and sclerosis in the subchondral bone , mild synovitis and capsular fibrosis.

OA predominantly involves the weight-bearing joints, including the knees, hip, cervical and lumbosacral spine, and feet. But actually any joint in the body can be affected.

OA Risk factors

  • Advanced age (most people over 45 years old).
  • Overweight (risk increases by 2 times).
  • Gender (women suffer OA 2 times more often than men).
  • Genetic predisposition.
  • Trauma, Injuries.
  • Congenital or acquired defects of the musculoskeletal system (the risk increases by 7-8 times.
  • Estrogen deficiency (women).
  • Vitamin D deficiency.
  • Unbalanced, excessive exercise of the joints.

WHAT HAPPENS AT OA

  • the cartilage tissue of the joint is thinned and damaged
  • cartilage functions are impaired: depreciation, protection, support
  • inflammation and swelling occur in the joint capsule, its volume increases
  • cartilage nutrition is reduced, its destruction is underway
  • the joint cavity is mechanically injured by fragments of cartilage, which causes it to jam
  • production decreases and synovial fluid composition changes

OA Stages

OA clinical symptoms

  • Joint pain.
  • Joint stiffness.
  • Joint swelling.
  • Deformity in the affected joint.
  • And finally, Loss of joint function.

MUCOSAT is an effective treatment for OA

  • Stimulates the regeneration of cartilage, and inhibits the enzymes that disrupt its structure and function.
  • Stimulates the synthesis of proteoglycans , normalize the metabolism of hyaline cartilage, and promotes the regeneration of cartilage surface.
  • Has anti-inflammatory effect, reduces concomitant inflammation, relieve pain and helps reduce the need for NSAIDs and subsequently protects the patients from its side effects.
  • Improves phosphorus-calcium metabolism in cartilage.
  • Prevents compression of connective tissue, increases the production of synovial fluid and mobility of the affected joints.

Currently, various forms of release are used among medicines. Joint creams or joint ointments are widely represented in pharmacies. Capsules and tablets for joints can also be used by patients as directed by a doctor. Of course, those forms are very convenient.

Injections remain the most effective dosage form. The advantage of intramuscular administration of chondroprotectors is their rapid absorption into the blood with accumulation in the synovial fluid of the joint after 15 minutes, and in the cartilage tissue after 48 hours.

In addition,injections increase the ability of chondroitine sulphate to be absorbed (increase the availability of the active substance in the bloodstream) which can lead to a faster and more effective result.

However, only a doctor can choose the right treatment!

At the first sign of joint problems, consult a specialist.
