PRF Therapy For Tendonitis San Diego
PRF Therapy For Tendonitis may be for you. Tendonitis is the inflammation of a tendon, where a muscle attaches to the bone. Such inflammation can happen from overuse or an injury resulting in pain, which can become chronic and recurrent if not treated. Tendonitis can happen at any age but is more common in adults that do a lot of sports, as well as older adults due to the tendons losing their elasticity with time. This uncomfortable physical issue can be treated at our San Diego PRF Therapy Clinic by using Platelet Rich Fibren, PRF Therapy technology. PRF Therapy For Tendons brings relief and is a highly effective way to treat tendonitis.
How Is The Condition Usually Treated?
Tendonitis is initially treated with rest, and if not resolved is treated with Physical therapy. Recurrent cases are often treated with local steroid injections, which is usually effective but leads to weakening of the tendon and possible rupture. Typically these traditional methods give temporary relief before symptoms come back. With every recurrence of tendonitis, more scar tissue builds up around the connective tissue and the tendon. This inflexible scar tissue slows down blood circulation, which can result in permanent pain and discomfort and further damage as time passes.
Although the results may vary, patients that undergo platelet rich fibren, find that it significantly improves their tendonitis within the first few injections. Platelet rich fibren, PRF is a popular option for patients who are suffering from tendonitis and who do not find relief through traditional remedies. The success of PRF Therapy is attributed to the autologous platelet cells that are used during the therapy. Platelet rich fibren is unlikely to be rejected by the body because it is extracted from the patient’s own blood. We recommend you to read this article for more detailed information on PRF therapy for tendonitis.
At our San Diego PRF therapy clinic, Allurant Aesthetics, we offer patients platelet-rich fibren (PRF) therapy to naturally rejuvenate and repair their tendonitis, help avoid recurrences of this painful debilitating condition, and avoid the likelihood of needing surgical restoration.
What is the process?
- We will draw blood from your arm and put it inside of a special centrifuge to extract the platelet rich fibren (PRF) from red blood cells.
- A local anesthetic is administered to numb the region.
- The PRF is then injected into the specific treatment area.
How long does the procedure take to perform?
Typically this process takes about 30 to 45 minutes. Patients are to drink plenty of water and eat a healthy meal beforehand.

Who Suffers From Tendonitis?
Any overuse of joints, repetitive movements, and heavy vibrations can result in tendonitis. Athletes such as runners, tennis players and swimmers can experience tendonitis at some time in their lifetime. Tendons lose elasticity with the passage of time and for this reason, older adults are at greater risk of developing chronic tendonitis and recurrent pain.
How Long is the downtime?
There is no downtime; you can immediately resume normal activities, however, you should rest the treated tendon for at least 2 weeks.
What To Expect When You Are Treated For PRF Therapy For Tendonitis?
Our physician will examine the injured area and discuss with you the severity of your tendonitis symptoms. We pinpoint the exact location of the inflamed tendon where the PRF is going to be injected.
We will then draw blood from the patient’s arm. The drawn blood will be placed into a special centrifuge machine where Platelet Rich Fibren (PRF) is separated from red blood cells. Platelet Rich Fibren, rich in growth factors, is then transferred into a syringe and is injected by a tiny needle into the targeted locations.
What are the risks and discomforts of PRF Therapy For Tendonitis?
Local anesthesia used in this procedure makes it almost painless. As for risks, to date, there has never been any serious side effect. Since PRF extracted from your own blood is injected into your tendon, you are not at risk of communicable disease. However, as with any therapy which involves injections, you may experience some transient local inflammation and/or bruising.
The recovery from the PRF therapy for tendonitis is normally uneventful. Any discomfort is managed generally with topical ice and a non-narcotic painkiller such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin). Occasionally, some mild localized swelling at the injection site is seen. You should stay away from using the treated tendon for at least 2 weeks until there is no discomfort with use.
