TREATMENTS AND METHODOLOGIES
Looking for sustained relief from joint pain?
Arthrosamid® is a new type of treatment for knee osteoarthritis that offers patients an effective alternative to current therapies. It is a non-biodegradable hydrogel that is injected into the knee to cushion the joint and relieve pain.
Single Injection = Lasting benefits for months
Arthrosamid® is a new type of treatment injected into the knee to help treat the pain caused by knee osteoarthritis, offering an alternative to currently available therapies1.
Arthrosamid® has been shown to cushion the joint, reduce pain and decrease stiffness to help improve the function of the knee.
The result is reduced knee pain, providing safe and sustained relief in a single injection.
“There was a little soreness and stiffness in the knees for the first 24 hours, but considerably less than what I expected, knee joints feel a lot better, as if cushioned. You did a really great job. Much appreciated.”

Who is Arthrosamid for
Struggling with persistent knee pain
If you have been struggling with chronic knee pain that limits your daily activities and affects your overall well-being, Arthrosamid can provide you with the relief you need. Its cushioning effect can significantly reduce pain and discomfort, allowing you to regain mobility and enjoy a pain-free life.
Those seeking minimally invasive solutions
If you prefer to avoid complex surgeries and lengthy recoveries, Arthrosamid offers a minimally invasive treatment option. With a single injection into the knee joint, Arthrosamid can provide long-lasting relief without the need for extensive downtime, allowing you to resume your regular activities sooner.
Individuals wanting effective and sustained results
Clinical trials have shown that Arthrosamid can deliver substantial pain reduction as early as Week 4 after the injection. Moreover, the reduction in pain has been sustained over an impressive 156 weeks. If you are looking for a treatment with proven and long-term effectiveness, Arthrosamid is an ideal choice.
Clients who prefer biocompatible and safe treatments
Arthrosamid has undergone extensive research and development over a 20 year period, ensuring its safety and biocompatibility. It seamlessly integrates with the tissues in your knee, providing a secure and reliable solution for knee osteoarthritis without compromising your well-being..
Alway delivered with ultrasound for accuracy and safety
Due to Arthrosamid being non-biodegradable it is important it is administered ion the correct place. At Rebound Physio we use ultrasound to guide the injection to ensure safe and accurate delivery.
Those currently unable to have surgery
Whilst suitable for all stages of arthritis Arthrosamid can help those who are ready but unsuitable for surgery for various reasons such as; Age (too elderly or young), Weight management issues, or multiple co-morbidities.
How long will it last..
The hydrogel making up the injection will not degrade, and therefore will provide long-lasting relief. So far, most patients have reported a significant reduction in their pain 4 weeks after their injection, and the average level of reduction was maintained at the 3-year follow-up period.

WHY USE POINT OF CARE ULTRASOUND (POCUS)
Given how relatively cheap and accessible Point of care diagnostic ultrasound scanning (POCUS) is, the additional value when diagnosing and treating conditions it brings is remarkable. See the video corresponding to the points below :
Ability to guide an injection to small spaces/joints to optimise accuracy / effectiveness – Some structures are 1mm thick, such as the shoulder bursae (imagine cling film with olive oil between) so accuracy is required to hit this. Examples where guidance is essential ACJ, retro-calcaneal bursae
Reaching joints / tissues too deep to hit unguided – Examples are the hip joint or Hamstring tendon origin.
Making a diagnosis – Accurate diagnoses can be difficult with structures difficult to distinguish however treatment would be very different – i.e. achilles tendinopathy / retro-calcaneal bursitis
Verifying a diagnoses – some conditions can mimic others or be combined..such as Plantar fasciitis and S1 nerve compressions. POCUS can help corroborate findings.
Joint draining – Should draining be needed to a joint capsule then POCUS is required to direct the needle to the fluid
Monitoring progress – Seeing a change in inflammation or tissue integrity is often only possible with POCUS
