What is SportVis?
SportVis is the only hyaluronic acid injection that is clinically demonstrated to relieve pain and restore function in damaged tendons and ligaments.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a molecule found naturally throughout the human body. It is an important component of the joint fluid (synovial fluid). In a healthy joint, the joint fluid helps to protect bones and other joint tissues from injury and disease. Synovial fluid also has anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects.
How does it work?
SportVis helps improve healing by augmenting the HA you naturally produce in response to damage in a tendon or ligament.
Who is a good candidate for SportVis?
SportVis may be considered for those suffering with tendon and ligament injuries to help facilitate timely healing and provide effective pain relief.
What is the injection process?

When can I expect results and how long will they last?
