Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection harnesses the healing properties of blood in order to reliably treat pain arising from tendons, ligaments and muscles. With excessive use and increasing age, pain arising from tendons is becoming more prevalent, particularly in active “baby boomers”.

PRP is most commonly used for the treatment of diseased tendons, commonly known as tendinitis. The medical term for this is tendinosis or tendinopathy. With increasing severity of tendinosis, partial thickness tears may form, which if left untreated can result in a full thickness tendon tear. The tendinosis-tear process is simply an increasing spectrum of injury to the tendon. Any tendon can be treated with this procedure and though not used routinely, the procedure may also be used in muscle and ligament tears (“strains and sprains”).
