Hyaluronic acid Injections in the management of Tendinopathies. A descriptive review
This review study was published in 2018 in Journal of EC ORTHOPAEDICS by Italian specialists. The aim of this manuscript is to evaluate the current evidences about the effectiveness of hyaluronic acid injections in tendinopathies.
Viscosupplementation with hyaluronic acid could be considered as mini-invasive and first-line approach in the treatment of tendinopathies, especially for its role in reducing pain and for its biological effects. However, the literature is still lacking about the correct type, dose and posology. Further studies about different types of hyaluronic acid in different kind of tendinopathies should be encouraged.
