A corticosteroid medication that is used to relieve pain and inflammation.

PRP (Platelet-rich plasma)
A concentrated solution derived from the patients own blood that is injected back into the site of injury. To process PRP, whole blood is removed from the patient and separated into layers by centrifugation. Platelets and white blood cells are concentrated and used for tissue repair. It is expected that concentrating and activating the platelets and returning them to the patient at the site of injury may promote healing, reduce pain, improve function, limit inflammation, and stimulate cartilage regeneration.
An autologous protein solution derived from the patients own blood that is injected directly into the joint affected by osteoarthritis. Similar to PRP, nSTRIDE is processed through centrifugation of whole blood. It is combined with an additional concentrating system to further separate white blood cells and platelets that are specific in blocking the progression of osteoarthritis.

"I am extremely happy with the results of the nSTRIDE injections. I have been very active with walking, running and cycling since the treatment and my knees feel great. I never think about them anymore, that has made me feel very happy!
I am more confident in my stride and am able to enjoy everyday activities more without having to worry about pain limiting me, which has been refreshing.

"I have suffered from chronic pain from moderate osteoarthritis, in my R knee for the last 4 yrs. At night , it would wake me up , and prevent me from falling back asleep, requiring pain medication. Since having the N- stride in November, I no longer have any chronic pain. It also hurts less when I walk, allowing me to walk further.

My body has been full of aches and pains specifically in my lower limbs. I am pleased to say the injection started working very well after a few days. I have been very surprised and impressed by the amount of relief it has given me. I am able to walk a flight of stairs without hesitation, or fear of pain. The best part is that it is expected to last a couple years before I am due for my next one!
