Everything you need to know about N-stride injections
The n-STRIDE injection aims to target this imbalance by using the patient’s own blood to concentrate anti-inflammatory cytokines and anabolic growth factors (“good proteins”) returning them to the site of the insult within the knee.
The nStride injection is a novel therapy to treat pain and slow the progression of cartilage degradation and destruction in the knee.
What is nStride?
The nStride injection is used to treat knee osteoarthritis.
The nStride injection has a high concentration of anti-inﬂammatory cytokines and anabolic growth factors that help to heal the damaged cartilage cells and provide relief from osteoarthritis pain. It also prevents further cartilage destruction by reversing the effects of the inﬂammatory proteins in osteoarthritis affected knee joints.
Research studies have shown that nStride significantly reduces pain associated with knee OA for up to 3 years. It significantly improves function in the knee joint associated with OA. It is found to be effective for patients with Kellgren and Lawrence stage 2 and 3 (mild to moderate OA) following a single injection. A 70% improvement in knee pain has been reported at 3 years following a single injection. The injection of nStride is well tolerated and safe. It is suitable for all patients who do not desire to have any surgeries and the entire process of getting the injection is extremely fast.
