Share Article

There is now a groundbreaking technology available at Performance Rehabilitation & Integrated Medicine to treat pain associated with Tennis / Golfer's Elbow, Achilles Tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis, Jumper's / Runner's Knee and Rotator Cuff / Shoulder Pain. Tenex Health TX™ was developed in collaboration with the Mayo Clinic to provide patents with a minimally invasive option for quick pain relief and rapid return to normal activities.

Performance Rehabilitation & Integrated Medicine has partnered with Tenex Health TX™ to offer this minimally invasive technology designed to precisely identify, remove and extract damaged tendon tissue. Tenex Health TX™ is supported by cutting edge research developed by the Mayo Clinic to solve chronic unresponsive pain as a result of chronic tendon and plantar fasciitis conditions, which until now, were lacking a definitive medical solution. Providing fast relief for tennis elbow, golfers elbow, shoulder, foot, and knee pain. Since Tenex Health TX™ only removes diseased tissue, while preserving healthy tissue, the patient experiences rapid pain relief and return to an active lifestyle much quicker then traditional orthopedic surgical procedures.

The procedure involves using ultrasound-imaging technology, the same kind used to see babies in the womb; this will help the doctor identify the specific location of the damaged pain generating tissue. The physician will then create a micro incision at the injured site and insert the TX MicroTip (which is the size of a tooth pick.) The TX MicroTip uses ultrasonic energy to precisely remove only the damaged tissue, breaking it down; without removing or hurting any healthy tissue.

Benefits of Tenex Health TX™ over traditional orthopedic surgery are:                    

  •     Quick pain relief
  •     Rapid return to normal activity
  •     Local anesthetic used instead of general anesthesia
  •     No sutures or stitches
  •     Minimally invasive, not open surgery
  •     Majority of the cost covered by most insurances

Performance Rehabilitation & Integrated Medicine utilizes an inter-disciplinary team approach to treatment unlike any other in the area. In some cases, the patient may also receive Regenerative Injection Therapy (Stem Cell or Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy) in conjunction with Tenex Health TX™ for a more comprehensive result.
