What can I expect during and after the procedure?
During the procedure, blood is drawn from your arm and in a clinical environment separated to obtain a concentrated nSTRIDE APS solution. This solution (about 3ml) is then injected into the osteoarthritic knee. During the injection, you may experience a minor pinch and discomfort.
After the treatment, it’s normal to experience some knee pain and stiffness, which subsides after about 2 days. You should minimize physical activities for 14 days after treatment to increase the efficacy of the injection. Osteoarthritis pain starts to decrease in approximately one to two weeks following the nSTRIDE injection.
After a few weeks, pain and discomfort are alleviated, and the attained results last for approximately 1-2 years. Although this treatment is deemed one of the best in the industry, it is still not a cure for osteoarthritis.
