Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections treat chronic tendon problems, such as:
- Tennis elbow
- Achilles tendonitis at the ankle
- Jumper’s knee
- Pain in the patellar tendon in the knee
- Acute sports injuries, like a pulled hamstring muscle or knee sprain
Injecting PRP into damaged tissues stimulates the growth of new, healthy cells and promotes healing.
After injections, most people can continue to go about their day. Accelerated healing should be noticeable within a few weeks.
