Platelet Rich Plasma Injections into Hip, Knee, or Shoulder Joints - Clinical Trial

What is the Purpose of this Study?

We are doing this study to find out what factors affect how well platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections work for people who choose to get them to treat a problem with their hip, knee, or shoulder joint. We hope the information we get from this study will help us find out what effects, if any, factors like age, gender, medical conditions, or injury history have on the outcomes of these injections.
