  • Study- Treatment of Tendonosis with blood

    If the results of this study are valid and reliable, the possible application of this treatment to other areas of the body could benefit a huge population of people. (I know, I know, it's just an abstract. I didn't have time to read the full thing!)

      This has been around for quite a while and from what I have heard quite well supported by research already. One of the sports med groups I like to work with has been doing it a lot in the past couple of years for Achilles and elbow tendon problem with good results.

        Awesome! I recently tore my distal bicep tendon and the ortho thinks a large contributing factor was chronic tendonosis in the area causing avascularity of the bicep tendon which greatly weakened it over time. I wonder if this treatment could have saves me from this injury?

          It is possible...

          The biggest downsides to the procedure are:
          1) not covered by insurance and a lot of doctor offices rip people off to do the procedure - a "kit" to do it runs $125, but some offices will charge people $200-500 a pop for it. Office I deal with charges you only the cost of the kit.
          2) It often requires multiple shots for a full resolution of the problem.
          3) It hurts - you can't take anti-inflammatories when you are having it done, because you WANT to cause inflammation for it to work.
          4) You have to limit use of the area for a bit after the injection to allow it to heal properly (think ripping off a scab).

          There are also treatments using Stem Cells in a similar way - but those are a lot more expensive and painful (harvesting the stem cells from your bone marrow and so on).

            Is there a way PRP or any of its derivatives would be able to repair a fully torn pec minor tendon from a few years ago?
