nSTRIDE Autologous Protein Solution

A nSTRIDE injection with Prime Health can help improve mobility and provide significant pain relief to swollen and painful knee joints. Keep you moving.


At Prime Health we understand how living with chronic and persistent knee pain can be hugely debilitating. Not only can it reduce your mobility and restrict movement, but it can also affect your mental health. Naturally, managing the pain is your priority.

You want treatment quickly, and conveniently. You also want reassurance that the care you receive is an exceptional standard and that the treatment will improve your quality of life.

At Prime Health we recognise that the management of musculoskeletal and joint pain can be complex, and often no single approach will be adequate on its own.

Across our centres, our highly experienced multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals offer a wide range of musculoskeletal pain management treatments and solutions including nSTRIDE injections.

So, what is nSTRIDE?

nSTRIDE injections are used to treat inflamed and damaged knee joints caused by osteoarthritis and is one of the latest biologic treatments used in treating knee osteoarthritis.

Using your own blood, nSTRIDE is an Autologous Protein Solution (APS) containing anti-inflammatory proteins and anabolic growth factors. It is obtained by separating white blood cells and platelets from your own blood and concentrating them in a small volume of plasma which is then injected into the affected knee joint.

As it contains concentrated anti-inflammatory proteins, it reduces the activity of inflammatory proteins in the osteoarthritic knee, reducing inflammation and slows down or stops altogether the deterioration of the knee cartilage.

The benefits of an nSTRIDE injection:

  • It can significantly improve mobility in the treated knee as it promotes cartilage cell growth and protects cartilage from catabolic degeneration
  • It requires just one blood sample, which is then given as one single injection
  • As it is an autologous treatment made from your own blood, it eliminates the risk of adverse reactions
