The injection is an alternative to surgery.
Platelet Rich Plasma injections (or PRP injections) can help regenerate and repair injured or torn MUSCLES, TENDONS, ligaments, cartilage and bones in knees, shoulders, ankles, hips and even the spine or low back. The athletes we have treated came in with hamstring tears, patellar tendinitis or tendon tears, and rotator cuff tears! In fact, many patients or athletes that have failed steroid injection or even surgical procedures turn to Platelet Rich Plasma Injections. Some rumored athletes that have tried PRP include Heinz Ward and Tiger Woods.
The Tenex Health TX™ System can be used to address the most common areas for tendon and soft tissue injuries including:
- Rotator cuff
- Lateral and medial epicondyle
- Patellar tendon
- Achilles tendon
- Plantar fascia
The system involves the unique and proprietary TENEX Microtip or probe which is applied to the damaged tendon or joint to initiate the healing process in these simple steps:
- a scalpel is used to penetrate the skin to allow the probe to make contact with the tendon
- The Microtip emits ultrasonic energy to break up scar tissue. The process kick starts the healing process as the body starts to repair the area.
- The Microtip has a vacuum mechanism to remove the scar tissue and other debris
Our pilot study conducted at Performance Spine & Sports Medicine shows that patients can feel pain relief in as little as 2 weeks!!
