Had PRP today.

Recommended Posts

Didn't feel a thing. No pain on injection, and doesn't hurt now. Took about 20min total.

Well, I was very positive with how things went after the first, so went back for a second one. 

The lack of regular painkillers highlighted the increasing issues with my other knee, so had that done as well, after following up with my specialist. 

Second knee hurt more during the shot, as there was less fluid and gear in there. 

I'm very positive with the results. But I'll most likely never run again. 

Just hiking for me.  But that is far less painful now than it was!

I had PRP in my tennis elbow.

It was the most painful thing I have ever experienced and I went into shock each of the 3 times !

It certainly fixed it though.  It was sore for over a year and a month or so after the 3 injections I became pain free and have been for 10+ years.  I had the classic tennis elbow condition as confirmed by ultrasound.

Try it in the Achilles - that was a fun day!!

Yikes... No thanks!

I think my saving grace us that knee is so rooted, it's wallowing in fluid. So there was a lot of joint space to inject a few more mls into

The latest on research for PRP suggests

 - some benefit with PRP up until 12 months for knee osteoarthritis, similar results to hyaluronic acid (Synvisc)

 - no benefit for tendon pain (achilles, patella, gluteal, shoulder, elbow etc) which compared to an insert substance (e.g. saline). It seems to have better results in some tendons but only when compared to corticosteriod (cortisone), which is thought to be harmful to tendons.

Good luck!

Yep Dr said the jury was out on it.  Still, had it in the left only - same exercises on both and the left is now significantly better that the right.  N=1

They need to compare it with just sticking a needle in 😁
