How does PRP/CRP compare to a cortisone injection?

Cortisone can often give immediate but short lived results.  Cortisone usually isn’t injected into tendons and ligaments since it may cause them to rupture.  PRP/CRP works slower and has long lasting effects.  It uses your body’s own natural regenerative capacity.  It can be injected into ligaments and tendons to heal them and to make them stronger.
