PRP treatment works most effectively for chronic ligament and tendon sprains/strains that have failed other conservative treatment.  Additionally, PRP can be effective for many cases of osteoarthritis by stimulating healing of cartilage and reducing pain and disability.   The following have been successfully treated with Platelet-Rich Plasma:

  1. Lumbar spine disc pain
  2. Rotator cuff injuries including partial-thickness tears
  3. Shoulder pain and instability
  4. Tennis and Golfer’s elbow
  5. Hamstring and hip strains
  6. Knee sprains and instability
  7. Patellofemoral syndrome and patellar tendonitis
  8. Ankle sprains
  9. Achilles tendonitis & plantar fasciitisimages-6
  10. Knee, hip, and other joint osteoarthritis
  11. Nerve entrapment syndromes, such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  12. Sacroiliac (SI) joint dysfunction and pain
  13. Lumbar and cervical facet dysfunction and pain
  14. Knee arthritis
  15. Hip joint arthritis
  16. Shoulder arthritis

With any treatment option the outcome and sustained results are highly dependent on the extent of the injury. For example in the case of mild arthritis, PRP could potentially prevent the development of further degeneration.  However, in advanced arthritic degeneration the goal of the treatment is to minimize pain and improve function. PRP (potentially if used in tandem with the use of stem cells) could avoid surgery such as joint replacements and potentially spinal fusion.
