Ewan's knee pain relief with nSTRIDE® protein injections at Nuffield Health Glasgow Hospital

Family man, keen cyclist and skier Ewan had just about given up on the idea of a family skiing holiday after the worn-out cartilage in his knees prevented him from the flexibility he knew he’d need to ski down those slopes.

“I heard about the nSTRIDE injections from a friend and I was curious to find out more about the treatment and if it would work for me,” said Ewan.

nSTRIDE® is a small injection into your knee joint of good proteins concentrated from your own blood and takes approximately 30 minutes as an outpatient procedure. 

It's designed to alleviate pain and bring balance back to your inflamed knee. These good proteins can block the bad proteins, which are responsible for the inflammatory condition in your joints. Other good proteins can then contribute to the health of your cartilage.

Ewan says that he is really pleased with the outcome of these injections – “I’m hopeful that this will delay the need for knee surgery and although I still feel regular discomfort during exercise, the recovery time is faster.

“I now feel less pain after driving or sitting for a long period.”

Ewan’s consultant, Mr Jibu John Joseph at Nuffield Health Glasgow Hospital strongly believes in providing his patients with the best possible care individualised to their needs, using well-established surgical techniques combined with modern, cutting edge technologies/treatments in order to do so: such as nSTRIDE® APS injection treatment for mild-to-moderate knee arthritis, which he introduced to Scotland in 2021.
