Post PRP Injection for gluteous medius tendon tears bilaterally

I had PRP injections a week ago in both gluteus tendons (partial tears, dorsal) and am wondering how much activity I should be doing. The tendons have calmed down" quite a bit, but still quite  painful in getting up, sitting down, walking and going up stairs. I am wondering if I am doing too much? Should I be more immobile? My Ortho Doc didn't specify. She said I should feel better in 2 weeks and recheck in in 6 weeks to see the amount of healing to the tendons. Mjensen602

Aftrer PRP injections, I usually recommend reduced, not restricted, activity for about two weeks. This either followed by a self directed stretching and strengthening program, or formal physical therapy.  Equally important, is avoiding NSAID's,especially during the first two weeks following the PRP injections.  Please refer to our web page www.activeorthopedics.com, for a thorough discussion of platelet rich plasma injections.
