Hyaluronic acid injections are considered by some doctors and researched an effective way to relief osteoarthritis symptoms, especially for knee osteoarthritis, as the acid helps lubricate the joints and thus facilitate joint movement.

Have you tried this treatment? Did you find it useful? How many times have you had injections?

Don't hesitate to share your experience with hyaluronic acid and give your advice to other patients.

As far as I am aware Hyaluronic Acid injections are not available on the NHS. You can have them privately at the London Clinic, but they are frightfully expensive. I take Hyaluronic Acid capsules as supplements, but can not swear by it, as I also take so many other supplements.

I have asked to have Hyaluronic injections for my knee arthritis but told "they don't do them" on the NHS. I suppose if someone high up in NICE had chronic knee arthritis things might be different!!
