PRP injections used to treat high hamstring tendonopathy....any advice?

I have been trying to rehab high hamstring tendonopathy for 2 months. Physical Therapy, massage therapy and complete rest have all been tried with no progress being made. Today the orthopedist suggested PRP injections. Anyone have experience or wisdom they can share with me about this form of treatment?

    We are all waiting to see what happens to you, Fourth. That's why no  replies, lol!  Some pair PRP with Prolotherapy to enhance the effect,  but I'm not sure about its suitability for the tendonopathy you have. I  guess we'll find out..

     

    What led to this injury? Do you bike? I'm wondering if there is anything to do with seating...

    If you get really frustrated.........I bet the best prolotherapist in the USA (Dr. Hauser, caring medical.com) would encourage you to stay active during prolotherapy, but maybe only elliptical for awhile.............if the PRP doesn't do it....though I believe it will...............ask for strong prolo with sodium murhuatte  4 to 6 treatments and you'll likely get really strong there................I have had my whole body done after a bad bicycle accident...............this doc is a 3 time ironman finisher.
