Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis and joint pain. Flexiseq is an innovative treatment for the management of pain and joint stiffness in patients with osteoarthritis. Flexiseq is a gel containing nanostructures called Sequessome vesicles, which are able to cross the skin and target sites of pain when rubbed in.
Eamonn Brady, pharmacist from Whelehans Pharmacy in Mullingar explains: “Flexiseq is a drug-free treatment option and is the first alternative treatment option for osteoporosis that stands up to scrutiny and has clinical data to support it”
John Church, CEO of Arthritis Ireland, said “We welcome any new innovative approach to making life easier for the 450,000 people living with osteoarthritis in Ireland.”
Professor Geraldine McCarthy from Mater Misericordiae University Hospital in Dublin said “I have been aware of Flexiseq since its launch in Germany last year and welcome its arrival in Ireland, as we have a real need for new treatments for the symptoms of osteoarthritis.”
The drug-free gel is supported by a wealth of clinical data including a paper recently published in Rheumatology, the official journal of the British Society for Rheumatology; Professor Wolfgang Bolten, indicated that Flexiseq could be used safely in older patients and patients with cardiovascular (heart ) problems without risks associated with traditional prescription anti-inflammatory drugs.
Eamonn from Whelehans explains that Flexiseq is an alternative treatment and like any alternative treatment, it should not replace conventional treatments prescribed by your medical professional. It can complement other arthritis treatments. Always consult your doctor.
