Tendinopathy treatment tips

Part II of a roundtable discussion

Last month, AAOS Now editorial board member Letha Y. Griffin, MD, conducted a focused round-table on the use of platelet-rich plasma in the treatment of tendinopathy (chronic inflammation of the tendon). That discussion continues this month with a broader look at treatments, ranging from physical modalities to oral and topical anti-inflammatory medications, high- or low-intensity pulsed ultrasound, extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT), and injected platelet-rich plasma (PRP).

Joining Dr. Griffin are James R. Andrews, MD; Brian J. Cole, MD; Nicola Maffulli, MD, PhD; Bert Mandelbaum, MD; Scott A. Rodeo, MD; and Holly J. Silvers, MPT.
