Adequan®i.m. Joint Education
A healthy equine joint is a complex system of internal and external issues that provide stability and protect the joint while allowing for freedom of movement. During routine activity, a functioning balanced joint is in a constant state of "wear and repair." As normal forces are exerted on the joint cells are very actively regenerating and repairing the components of damaged cartilage while replacing the synovial fluid in the joint. This constant renewal, repair and replacement cycle assures that no cartilage repair and replacement cycle assures that no cartilage loss occurs and a functionally balanced, healthy joint environment is maintained.
