Grievous pain in the joints should be medically examined early on; it could be that osteoarthritis is the cause

In the early stages of an osteoarthritis, inflammatory attacks in the joints and short-term grievous pain are often not taken seriously and ignored. In the further course of the disease, the complaints increase as well as the joint pain and lead up to an unavoidable joint surgery.

Warm-up pain after resting intervals or stress pain after longer time periods of intensive use of the joint, can be the first signs of osteoarthritis. An early stage diagnosis and subsequent therapy can slow down the progression of the osteoarthritis. For this reason, it is of preeminent significance to have causes of joint pain in the initial stages medically examined, e.g. pain of the knee or pain in the hips, and in the case of diagnosed osteoarthritis, to take action against it.

Artificial joints have a limited lifecycle, and for this reason in part, joint replacements in young people especially are delayed as far as possible. The slowing down of the progression is therefore the main aim of the therapy.

What actually is osteoarthritis?

Osteoarthritis is a general joint- and cartilage -degeneration which slowly and insidiously develops. The cause is for example excessive and overdue stress and strain, as occurs in competitive athletes. In other cases it can also be attributed to false movements, accidents or lack of mobility and exercise. In seldom cases, the causes can be attributed to genetic cartilage defect conditions. The condition can be easily treated in the early stages with stabilized hyaluronic acid in Crespine Gel. The chronic progressioncan thereby be significantly reduced. Early warning signals from the body, such as grievous joint pain should therefore be medically examined as soon as possible.

Osteoarthritis conditions are particularly prevalent in the knee- and hip joints

The cartilage covers the bones in a healthy joint and creates smooth and elastic surfaces. This enables the joint to survive excessive pressures and absorb shock effects. Overdue friction occurs in a joint when the cartilage has fissures and this in turn leads to a degeneration of the cartilage tissue. In the 4th stage of an osteoarthritis, the bones impinge directly onto one another due to the absence of sufficient cartilage tissue. Patients then also suffer under rest pains.

Young people usually suffer acute cartilage defects by reason of an accident or sports injuries.

When the cartilage tissue is unduly and excessively encroached upon by stress and strain and extreme forces impinge upon the cartilage, this can also lead to degeneration.. A chronic osteoarthritis can then develop from such extreme acute effects.

Osteoarthritis can affect anyone. Knee- or hip -joint pain are not just signs of old age.

Osteoarthritis can signify a degeneration through old age but the condition is not exclusive to the elderly. Numerous causes are attributable to the appearance of osteoarthritis in the young people. Body weight, nutrition and a possible malalignment of the extremities and the joints often play a role in the manifestation of osteoarthritis.

There are several causes for osteoarthritis:

  • Strong stresses and strains on untrained joints
  • Excessive sporting activities
  • An accident affecting a joint and its cartilage
  • Malalignment of the joints
  • An unbalanced nutrition
  • Degeneration of the cartilage in old age


The so-called hyaline cartilage prevents the joint from being damaged from undue stress and strain encroachment by providing for regular ‘lubrication’. The cartilage is nourished by mobile activity and the permeation of synovial fluid (joint fluid).

A sufficient volume of fluid should be brought to the body to prevent any drying out of the cartilage.

When a joint has an osteoarthritis condition, the volume of joint fluid can be too little or the synovial fluid loses viscosity and elasticity due to a lack of hyaluronic acid. The optimum protection function of the cartilage is then no longer present.

When the natural source of hyaluronic acid in the body is too weak to keep the residual cartilage healthy, it can be meaningful to replace the missing hyaluronic acid via an injection into the joint-line and this provide support for natural joint functions.

The sooner osteoarthritis is counteracted together with the associated knee joint-pain and joint-pains in general, by injecting external hyaluronic acid, the longer a joint surgery can be delayed.

The injection of stabilized hyaluronic acid as contained in Crespine Gel, surrounds the existing cartilage with an gel implant as a protective covering on the degenerated cartilage and thus prevents continued degeneration, which are bound to result in ever more grievous knee pain, pain in the hips and other affected joints.

The following should be observed when suffering from knee joint-pain and other forms of joint-pain:

  • Joint-pain should be examined early on when the condition manifests itself.
  • When the complaint is osteoarthritis, countermeasures should be introduced early in order to keep the condition and the discomfort at bay.
  • Crespine Gel can represent a component on the way to a balanced, mobile and painless way of life.
