PRP for tendonitis
« on: May 15, 2014, 10:05:05 AM »
Hi everyone,

Has anyone tried PRP for patellar or quadricep tendonitis?  Was PRP injected superficially under the skin in several pokes around the tendon?

I had a couple PRP injections but they were injected deep into the knee. I think they are more for cartilage issues and did not resolve my tendon pain, which is relatively superficial.

Can you please describe how your PRP was injected for tendonitis?

Thank you.
roger

I had it injected into the tendon (ultrasound guided) after the FAST procedure.  I have gained the most improvement after having those two procedures.

Mine was similar. Obtained very good results. Actually, didn't have a tendonitis, but a partial rupture (60% of the tendon). The injury healed completly after 10 months.
