Research studies are currently being conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of PRP treatment. At this time, the results of these studies are inconclusive because the effectiveness of PRP therapy can vary. Factors that can influence the effectiveness of PRP treatment include:

  • The area of the body being treated
  • The overall health of the patient
  • Whether the injury is acute (such as from a fall) or chronic (an injury developing over time)

Here is a list of various conditions for which PRP has bene studies:

Repetitive Motion/Tendon Injuries

(Jumper’s knee, tennis elbow, Achilles tendinopathy/tear, rotator cuff tendinopathy/tears)

Knee Osteoarthritis

(Bone on bone, chronic swelling, etc.)
