What is a PRP shoulder pain injection?

The procedure involves drawing a small amount of blood from the patient and then separating the platelets from the other blood cells using a centrifuge. Platelets are a type of blood cell that are involved in the clotting process and also contain growth factors that can stimulate tissue healing. Next, the concentrated platelets are injected back into the patient at the site of the injury or pain.

How can PRP injection help the shoulder?

It’s important to note that PRP injections are not a cure-all and may not be effective for everyone. The effectiveness of PRP injections can vary and it may take several treatments to see a significant improvement. It’s important to discuss the potential benefits and risks of PRP injections with your provider to determine whether they are a good option for you.

Is there any downtime?

PRP injections are generally considered to be safe, with few reported side effects. However, as with any medical procedure, there are risks involved and it’s important to discuss these with your medical provider before proceeding.


Treatment results.

PRP injections can be used in the early, mild and moderate stages where evidence supports benefit. However, it is not appropriate to have PRP treatment when the joint has severe changes.

PRP injections have been found to be more effective than hyaluronic acid and steroid injections.

Who is a good candidate?

Not everyone is a good candidate for our PRP shoulder pain treatment, and the last thing we want to do is promise a shoulder pain treatment to someone unlikely to benefit from it. When you come in for a consultation, we will sit down with you to learn and evaluate your shoulder pain. If you are a good candidate, we will develop a treatment specifically tailored to your needs.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment may be recommended for people with certain conditions that affect the shoulder. PRP treatment may be considered when other treatments, such as medications, physical therapy, or rest, have not been effective in relieving pain or improving function.

Rotator cuff tears


PRP treatment may help to reduce pain and improve function in people with rotator cuff tears. These soft tissues hold your arm in the shoulder joint and support arm movement. Considering how often you move your arms, it’s no surprise to learn that the rotator cuff is vulnerable to sports and overuse injuries. PRP is especially beneficial for reducing tendon inflammation (tendonitis) and speeding healing in torn tendons.

Biceps tendonitis

Biceps tendonitis occurs when the tendon connecting the biceps to your shoulder becomes inflamed. Though biceps tendonitis may begin after an injury, it most often develops due to age-related tissue degeneration. PRP delivers the same benefits for biceps tendonitis as those described above for rotator cuff injuries, alleviating your pain by promoting healing and diminishing inflammation.

Shoulder labral tears

The labrum is a ring of cartilage around the shoulder socket. The cartilage provides extra support for your upper arm and stabilizes the joint. Several ligaments and tendons also attach to the labrum, including the biceps tendon. Labral tears can occur due to accidental injury like falling or taking a blow to your shoulder. Like the first two shoulder conditions, PRP injections may make a significant difference in healing a labral tear and easing the pain.
