HOW OUR TECH WORKS

Disrupt

Controlled microtrauma to break up adhesions and scar tissue to temporarily cause inflammation so the body knows it needs repair.

Recruit

The body sends additional blood flow to the inflamed area with healing cells and oxygen to repair the injured area.

Strengthen

Follow the eight-week recovery program for 10 minutes a day, three times per week, incorporating stretching exercises to improve mobility.

HOW TENDONS HEAL

Tendons, which are connective tissue that attach muscles to bones, are made of thick bands of collagen fibers, and have a tendency to break down, tear and degenerate over time. Tendons have poor circulation and reduced blood supply, which means they are at risk of not healing well or at all.

Increasing circulation to tendons boosts oxygen and healing properties, which can stimulate healing and may help to reverse any degeneration.

FIIX ELBOW HEALING PROCESS

Stā  Active tennis elbow healing process

Inducement of tissue microtrauma promotes a local inflammatory response that promotes:

1. Breakdown of scar tissue

2. Release of adhesions

3. Synthesis of new collagen

4. Tissue remodeling
