It is hypothesized that autologous blood injections may trigger the inflammatory cascade and initiate healing of degenerative tissue via mediators in the blood or localized trauma from the injection itself. One case series, including 29 patients who had failed other conservative modalities, reported a 79 percent improvement in pain scores over an average of months; some patients required multiple injections. 27 However, clinical trials that include a comparison group receiving placebo injections are lacking, and until these trials are completed, autologous blood injections cannot be recommended.
