    While I've never had PRP therapy, I am scheduled to receive it in less than a month. The website below has a lot of good info. on it. EDIT Personally it sounds very encouraging. To be deemed a candidate for the treatment, have a doctor review your latest MRI, the MRI report and any treatments you've tried up til now and what results they've given you.

    The jury is still out on PRP’s effectiveness, although I did some research and the results were encouraging in a study done by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23230401

    Cost-wise the quote I got for two levels of my back was $1,250. It is NOT covered by insurance. There's a decent chance I may have to go back for anywhere from 3-5 total injections, so you could be looking at costs of $3,750 (3 injections) up to $6,250 (5 injections). Of course that does not include any travel costs if you have to travel out of state like I do. While that is expensive, it's far, far cheaper than surgery and MUCH safer. Hope that helps.
