Modern Pharmaceuticals for the treatment of joints currently offers many drugs in the form of capsules, tablets, injections, gels, ointments.
Today our website offers its readerslearn more about the drug Alflutop established Romanian pharmacologists. There shall be given medicine to improve the health of patients suffering from locomotor diseases (musculoskeletal system), preventing joint destruction and recovery. You will learn how to use the drug, if he has any side effects and contraindications.
Consequences of diseases of the joints
Cartilage tissue in the body acts as ashock absorber, protecting the bones from friction and further destruction. And as soon as the changes of cartilage structure, the motor function immediately violated. The cartilage has intercellular substance containing components, which give our cartilage elasticity. These substances are chondroitin, glucosamine, proteoglycans. When are degenerative-dystrophic changes in any joint, the cartilage loses its elasticity, there are cases of cracking. Then there is an abnormal growth of bone tissue due to injury.
This drug is used in diseasesjoints and spine, usually bearing the degenerative-dystrophic nature, that is, have a tendency to fracture. Alflutop can improve metabolic (exchange) processes in cartilaginous tissue, reduce inflammation, and pain. Besides suppressed substances that destroy the structure of cartilage, increased synthesis of collagen, a joint power is greatly improved. Thanks to these properties relate to Alflutop chondroprotector. The composition of the drug include the following components:
- extracts were extracted from several species of small sea fish;
- proteoglycans, increase bone density, cartilage thickness, MRI hydrophilic index (the ability to absorb water well);
- dermatan sulfate and keratan sulfate;
- amino acids, proteins;
- hyaluronic acid;
- Micro and macro elements (calcium, zinc, potassium, magnesium, copper, iron, sodium) needed to build bone cells.
Available drug only in solution form, therefore can be used only as injections.
In addition to the chondroprotective effect Alflutop has anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect on painful joints.
All components are included in the active drug metabolism cartilage while compensating for lack ofnutrients, which it badly needs. Decreases capillary permeability, stimulates regenerative processes in the cartilage. If the period of rest, walking, especially on stairs, or other loads on the joint pain appears, then Alflutop remove it. Gradually, the patient returns to the life to which he was accustomed. And in the synovial fluid drug has a positive effect, it reduces the amount of fibrinogen, globulin, leukocytes, seromucoid. Within a week the patient was feeling better, and the end of treatment in the synovial fluid increases the amount of hyaluronic acid twice. Disease progression is inhibited, patients say that the therapeutic effect after a conducted course is maintained for a long time.
Alflutop can be used in the following cases:
- osteoarthritis, osteochondrosis (Degenerative joint disease or spine);
- periarthritis (inflammation in the tissue situated near the joints), spondylosis (wear structures of the spinal column);
- traumatic dysostosis;
- Chondral violations
- complex therapy of intervertebral hernias;
- after the conducted operations to quickly restore mobility and joint work adequately.
Compared with other similar Alflutop oneffects of drugs, it may be noted that it is not among the most popular. Most likely, this is due to the fact that it "overshadowed" other new drugs have appeared in large numbers in pharmacies. The second reason - many people prefer tablets rather than injections into the muscle or joint. And the price for the drug is high, many people do not know the properties of the drug, can not decide on such an expensive purchase. But in the early twenty-first century, many studies have been conducted, which showed that patients pain disappeared, their long anxious. By the way, one of the studies showed that the best effect is achieved with diseases of the knee joint, the hip joint is treated harder. Alflutop safe for health. When treating Alflutop possible to reduce the dose, and sometimes completely abandon indomethacin, diclofenac and other NSAIDs (this abbreviated name of the group NSAIDs). All positive properties make Alflutop wider in rheumatology, neurology, traumatology, internal medicine and orthopedics.

Alflutop used in the acute and chronic stages of the disease. Moreover, chronic process docked (suppressed) much faster. Complex measures increase the effectiveness of therapy.
