Does PRP work for achilles tendonopathy?

David Rosenblum, MD, lectures at his NYC Regenerative Pain Mediicne Course in which he presents articles in favor and against the use of PRP for the achilles tendonopathy. When evaluating PRP studies note the platelet count and preparation.

While controversial, Dr. Rosenblum has had some remarkable successes utilizing platelet rich plasma to treat achilles tendonitis refractory to conservative care and steroid injecitons. As this is a  low risk and high gain for certain patients, this therapy may be considered safe and indicated.

When evaluating PRP efficacy in studies, it is important to note the platelet count and preparation techniques as they vary and can give different results.  Experts suggest that some studies have used sub-par PRP (PRP with low platelet counts)

Dr. Rosenblum gives courses on regenerative pain medicine and ultrasound guided pain procedures in NY and around the world.
