Autologous blood injections


Autologous Blood Injection (or Autologous Conditioned Plasma Injection) uses the patient’s own blood as an agent of healing. Blood is collected from the patient from a vein in the arm, similar to when a person donates blood.  The blood is then reinjected at the pain site where it stimulates the body’s natural healing process.  The patient may experience some local bruising and tenderness at the injection site for a few days following the procedure

Any tendon in the body may be injected with a patient’s blood products, but autologous blood injections are most frequently used in the treatment of heel, ankle, knee, hip, and buttock pain.
