PRP has been used by the Centeno clinic and several others to treat knee and foot injuries, but there is less known about the efficacy of PRP on rotator cuffs. In this study patients with rotator cuff problems in both shoulders were given dry needle injections on one side and PRP on the other. The PRP shoulders showed noticeable improvement whereas the dry injected shoulders did not.
Centeno has been using PRP for knee treatments for several years and with some success. If this treatment can also work for shoulders, then this will certainly augment the possible treatment options for patients with rotator cuff injuries.
