Tenex Health TX

There is now exciting news for those who suffer from chronic heel pain.  In the past, for those sufferers of heel pain that did not respond to injections, medications, orthotics or physical therapy, surgical procedures would be indicated.
Now there is a new advanced treatment that quickly and safely removes the source of pain.  Tenex Health TX, in conjunction with the Mayo clinic, has developed a minimally invasive treatment that has proven to be extremely effective in treating chronic heel pain.
Tenex Health TX is performed with local anesthesia in a hospital setting.  During treatment, sophisticated ultrasound imaging is used to identify the location of the damaged soft tissue.  Once located, a small Microtip is inserted into the chronically damaged area through a small incision.  Ultrasonic energy then breaks down and removes damaged tissue quickly and safely, sparing surrounding healthy tissue.  Recovery is rapid, and the patient is able to walk immediately.  Relief of the symptoms normally takes about 6 weeks.
If you are suffering from heel pain that has not responded to traditional conservative treatment, but do not want the risks and recovery of open surgery, Tenex Health TX may be right for you.
