Treatment of Iliotibial Band Friction Syndrome with PRP

Several readers have asked about the treatment of IT band friction syndrome with PRP. IT Band tendonitis can developed at the knee or hip and can be quite painful. It is usually associated with running or biking long distances. No large studies have been published using PRP for this problem. The results of surgical intervention for IT Band issues, however, are not always predictable. Therefore, an investigation of the use of PRP for chronic, severe patients with this disorder should be initiated.
