PRP may improve tendon injuries as well as other chronic tendinosis. Specifically, it could be possible to treat an acute Achilles tendon tear non-operatively using a PRP injection. Non-surgical, ultrasound guided injection of PRP into the Achilles tendon within one month of injury, significantly improved a 90% Achilles tendon rupture in 6 weeks, leaving only a small focal tear. At 24 weeks, the tear was completely resolved.
