How do you decide between PRP and Stem Cell Therapy?
Oftentimes this is based on the present studies or research available versus also the somewhat more significant cost of stem cell therapy over PRP therapy. PRP has shown significant results for ‘partial’ tendon and ligament tears or tears of the meniscus in the knee, as well as for degenerative disc disease of the spine. Whereas stem cell injections are more often used for osteoarthritis of the large joints (shoulders, hips, knees) as well as ‘full-thickness’ tears of tendons (e.g. rotator cuff) and ligaments(e.g. elbow-collateral ligament or knee-anterior cruciate ligament).
