Does Tenex Health TX™ Hurt?
A local anesthetic will be used to numb the area. You may feel a slight pressure during the treatment. Many people feel immediate relief after the Tenex Health TX™ procedure. As in any procedure, some patients may feel a little soreness in the treated area for a short period of time following the procedure. You can take over-the-counter pain medication for any discomfort.
How Long Does Tenex Health TX™ Take?
Typically, Tenex Health TX™ takes 20 minutes or less to complete. This includes the time to pre-prep (skin cleansing) and post-procedure (placement of a small adhesive bandage). During the procedure, Dr. Himmelberg will use ultrasound imaging to identify the specific location of the damaged tendon tissue. Once the treatment area is located, a small MicroTip is inserted into the treatment area which delivers ultrasonic energy to break down and remove damaged tissue safely and quickly without disturbing surrounding health tendon tissue. Dr. Himmelberg will carefully review the procedure process and after-care instructions based on your condition, work and lifestyle.
How Long Does It Take to Recover?
The big advantage: you are back to light activity in days and your normal routine in weeks. Unlike traditional open surgery where recovery may take several months or even a year, patients choosing to find relief with the Tenex Health TX™ procedure will return to their normal activities in a few short weeks.
There is no longer a need to continue suffering with chronic tendon pain (in your shoulder, elbow, knee, ankle or foot). Call Dr. Himmelberg to schedule your free assessment today to find out if you are a candidate for Tenex Health TX™.
