Tenex Health TX


Tendon pain takes on many forms—plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, jumper’s/runner’s knee, tennis/golfer’s elbow and swimmer’s shoulder. When physical therapy, cortisone injections, medication and rest don’t provide relief, the TENEX HEALTH TX™ procedure might be the solution to your long-lasting tendon pain.
The TENEX HEALTH TX procedure combines ultrasound imaging, which pinpoints damaged tissue, with the advanced TC MicroTip, which precisely breaks down and removes only the damaged tissue that was causing you pain.
This one-time, ultrasonic procedure is designed to remove the source of the pain without affecting the healthy surrounding tissue and stimulate a healing response. It is not a surgery, and it can be performed in an office or procedure room.

Ideal candidates:
