High activity levels can keep you looking and feeling amazing. However, the race to a healthier lifestyle oftentimes gives way to injuries that can develop scar tissue, which can later become painful and problematic. If you’ve been suffering pain stemming from scar tissue in the tendons of your elbows, feet, ankles or knees, a Tenex FAST Procedure can be the most effective way to return to a pain-free life.
How Does it Work?
The Tenex FAST Procedure is designed to remove pain caused by scar tissue through a minimally invasive approach. While conventional treatments require lengthy periods of rest, medication and therapy, a Tenex FAST Procedure generally allows patients to return to their activities after only one month on most occasions.
The procedure involves the numbing of the affected area with local anesthesia. A micro tip from the TX1 tissue removal system is then inserted using accurate ultrasound guidance. After entering, the tip delivers ultrasonic energy that breaks and blends the scar tissue before extracting it. Unlike conventional open surgeries, the microscopic opening made on the skin does not require sutures. Instead, it’s covered with adhesive bandages.
A Safer Way to Pain Relief
Don’t let your pain keep you from doing the activities you love. A Tenex FAST Procedure can be used whether your scar tissue pain originated from:
- Tennis elbow
- Golfer’s elbow
- Jumper’s knee
- Plantar fasciitis
- Swimmer’s shoulder
- Achilles tendonitis
