NStride Injections: A Safe and Effective Treatment

Osteoarthritis, a painful condition affecting a significant percentage of the population in the UK aged 45 and over, primarily results from the natural wear and tear of joints.

Other risk factors include obesity, family history, and past injuries. One individual who faced the challenges of osteoarthritis head-on is Steve Redgrave, the Olympic gold medal-winning rower residing in Berkshire.

Steve’s experience serves as a compelling example of how NStride injections can provide relief to those dealing with this condition.

NStride is a groundbreaking treatment that uses a patient’s own blood to tackle inflammation at its root.

This quick and minimally invasive procedure involves extracting about 55ml of the patient’s blood, which then undergoes a two-step centrifugation process, resulting in a 3ml fluid rich in anti-inflammatory proteins called cytokines and interleukins.

When this fluid is injected into the affected knee, it binds to the cartilage, effectively neutralizing the inflammatory proteins responsible for cartilage breakdown and pain.

The advantages of NStride injection over traditional surgical procedures are clear:

1-Less Invasive: Unlike surgery, which can be painful and require a lengthy recovery, NStride injections are minimally invasive. This means less harm to the body, a lower risk of complications, and a faster return to normal activities.

2-Personalized Treatment: NStride uses the patient’s own blood, minimizing the risk of adverse reactions. It’s a customized approach that promotes healing from within.

3-Pain Relief: By addressing inflammation at its source, NStride injections significantly reduce pain and discomfort, offering patients substantial improvements in their quality of life.

4-Delaying Osteoarthritis Progression: NStride treatment can, in some cases, slow down the progression of osteoarthritis. This may provide long-term relief without the need for surgery.

5-Cost-Effective: NStride injection are cost-effective compared to surgery. Fewer hospital stays, shorter recovery times, and fewer post-operative complications contribute to overall cost savings.


In conclusion-

NStride injections provide advancement in the treatment of osteoarthritis. Steve Redgrave’s experience is a testament to the transformative potential of this innovative procedure.

By harnessing the body’s natural healing abilities and targeting inflammation precisely, NStride injections offer patients a less painful, more effective alternative to surgery, ultimately improving their overall quality of life.

In my experience over the last few years Nstride injections are helpful in early stages of osteoarthritis. In approximately 70% of patients, Nstride injections can provide relief of symptoms enabling return to an active lifestyle.
