Platelet-Rich Plasma Injection for Chronic Achilles Tendinopathy
A Randomized Controlled Trial

Robert J. de Vos, MD; Adam Weir, MBBS; Hans T. M. van Schie, DVM, PhD; Sita M. A. Bierma-Zeinstra, PhD; Jan A. N. Verhaar, MD, PhD; Harrie Weinans, PhD; Johannes L. Tol, MD, PhD

JAMA. 2010;303(2):144-149.
PRP therapy worked no better than salt water injections in achillis tendonosis in a great double blind study from the Netherlands. I wonder what is so special about the ones Dr. Galea is giving our U.S. athletes in Canada?
