Tendons are strong pieces of connective tissue that connect muscles to bone in the body. Tendinitis is when the tendon becomes irritated and inflamed, often resulting in pain in the body. This is usually from overuse or repetitive motions, but also can be from injury or trauma. Patients commonly affected include athletes, weekend warriors, and trade workers such as carpenters and painters.

Tendinitis can be diagnosed by your physician through a detailed case history and physical examination. In some circumstances, the doctor may order an x-ray or MRI to rule out additional damage or other conditions.
First line therapies for tendinitis involve resting, icing, compression, and elevation of the tendon. Other first line options include over the counter anti-inflammatory’s such as Ibuprofen. If conservative care does not provide pain relief, cortisone injections into the tendon or physical therapy may be indicated. If the tendon is partially torn, surgical repair may be needed.
PRP Tendinitis Pain Relief
Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP tendinitis pain relief injections focus on regenerating the damage to the tendon while minimizing the inflammation. The treatment involves injecting the tendon at the site of pain while also treating the supporting structures of the joint. This may include other tendons and ligaments that have been compensating for the tendinitis. The treatment is highly effective and provides long lasting pain relief within 1-2 treatments in most cases.

PRP Tendinitis Relief Summary

This provides an attractive alternative to conventional therapies such as Ibuprofen and RICE (resting, ice, compression, elevation). PRP injections focus on regenerating and strengthening the tendon while simultaneously minimizing inflammation. Patients are able to return to activity with reduced pain or pain free within 4 weeks post treatment in many cases depending on severity and history. Some patients may need multiple treatments for long term
