Premier League Head of Medical & European Head Physio, Peter Friar, considers OSTENIL® as “underused in a lot of areas”, and states that he has “only ever seen a positive reaction to an OSTENIL® injection”. He noticed the positive effects of OSTENIL® injections because it actually helps to prolong the career of professional players.
Peter recommends the use of OSTENIL® “at the early onset of joint degeneration”, because it “prevents the acceleration of knee injury issues”. He even finds it “crazy that we don’t offer it more often”.

Where surgery is not feasible due to work, or when a professional athlete during the competing season has sports commitments which would make viscosupplementation a preferable treatment option in the interim, OSTENIL® is the viscosupplement of choice for knee and ankle problems.
