Consider getting treated early with Euflexxa

Using EUFLEXXA early in the treatment process can help you get the lubrication and shock absorption you need within the knee joint—and may help your knees find HAppiness sooner.2,3

Do any of these sound like you?


If so, discuss them with your healthcare provider. Together, you’ll decide if EUFLEXXA can help relieve your OA knee pain.

Euflexxa works to reduce pain associated with 5 activities2

The effectiveness and safety of EUFLEXXA was shown to be comparable to another HA product* in a head-to-head clinical trial. The study was conducted in 321 patients with OA knee pain over a 12-week period.

  • After 3 injections, patients had less pain when climbing stairs, walking, standing, sitting, and rest during the night
  • Pain improvement with EUFLEXXA was 62% (P<0.0001) vs 55% with the other product (P<0.0001)


In the 12-week study, side effects caused by EUFLEXXA were joint pain (11/160), increase in blood pressure (3/160), joint swelling (3/160), feeling of sickness (3/160), tingling (2/160), back pain (1/160), nausea (1/160), skin irritation (1/160), and tenderness in study knee (1/160).4

†Questions based on the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC). WOMAC is an internationally recognized and widely used set of standardized questionnaires used by health care professionals to assess the condition of patients with osteoarthritis of the knee and hip. Measures include pain, stiffness, and physical functioning of the joints.5

Improvements from baseline were statistically significant for both treatment groups.

Euflexxa reduces the need for pain medication2

In the 12-week clinical study vs an established HA therapy, significantly fewer patients on EUFLEXXA had a need for acetaminophen vs another hyaluronic acid (HA). (P=0.001)

Nearly 3X more EUFLEXXA patients
did not require simple pain medication.

Percentage of Patients Who Needed No Pain Medication

Euflexxa patients are highly satisfied

In the 12-week study, side effects caused by EUFLEXXA were joint pain (11/160), increase in blood pressure (3/160), joint swelling (3/160), feeling of sickness (3/160), tingling (2/160), back pain (1/160), nausea (1/160), skin irritation (1/160), and tenderness in study knee (1/160)
