Marcelo Ríos underwent Tenex procedures on both of his elbows

Procedures were within 12 days of each other

A few weeks after his tenex procedures Marcelo Rios went on to win a tennis tournament.

As reported by TENNIS TOURTALK, Marcelo Rios has returned to the courts. The 42-year-old former World No. 1 from Chile beat Nicolás Lapentti from Ecuador 6-4, 5-7, 11-9 in an exhibition match on Friday held at Gran Arena Monticello. Rios reached the top of the ATP-Rankings 20 years ago and showed that he is still in good shape.

“Without pain and without scars, and quick recovery.”

The amazing part of the story is that Marcelo Rios had Bilateral Tenex Elbow Procedure by Dr Alejandro Badia at the Badia Hand to Shoulder Center (BHSC) in Miami weeks before the match.

What is " Tennis Elbow" ?

tennis elbow anatomy

Tennis elbow, also known as lateral epicondylitis, is a condition that causes pain and tenderness on the outer part of the elbow. Despite its name, this condition can affect people who don’t play tennis as well. It occurs when the tendons, which connect the muscles of your forearm to the bone at the lateral epicondyle (a bony bump on the outer part of the elbow), become inflamed or damaged.
