Superior Tendinitis Treatments in Mount Pleasant & North Huntingdon, PA

Anyone who has suffered from tendonitis knows how painful this condition can be, and the prospect of getting tendonitis surgery can be daunting. Dr. Jacob DiCesare is proud to offer alternatives to surgery, including corticosteroid injections and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections. 

Corticosteroids help to reduce inflammation and pain, and can be incredibly effective at treating tendonitis that has lasted up to three months. PRP injections are another effective tendonitis treatment that involves taking a sample of your own blood and spinning it to separate out the platelets. These platelets have healing properties, and are injected into the affected area to help generate healthy, new tissue. Dr. DiCesare may use musculoskeletal (MSK) ultrasound to help guide him towards the specific part of your body that is causing you pain, ensuring that the injection goes into the exact spot it needs to.
