Non-Surgical (Tenex) Scar Removal Treatment in New York
What is Tenex scar tissue removal?
The Tenex procedure is a minimally invasive treatment that can reduce pain and discomfort in the tendons and fascia, which are the soft tissues that connect your muscles to your bones. When these soft tissues become damaged due to overuse during sports or a sports injury, they can create what is known as scar tissue, or diseased soft tissue. Often scar tissue can lead to chronic tendon or fascia pain. The minimally invasive Tenex procedure can quickly remove this scar tissue, restore your range of motion, and reduce or diminish tendon and fascia pain. At Performance Health in NYC & Pearl River, we offer Tenex scar removal treatment to improve your mobility and decrease tendon or fascia pain. Schedule an appointment with one of our skilled physicians today to learn more about how Tenex can benefit you.
Why is Tenex used?
Tenex is used to relieve pain in the fascia or tendons, which is common among athletes who perform repetitive movements or have suffered a sports injury. Fascia or tendon pain could be the result of a fall, trip, or another sudden movement that causes the tendon to twist or pull in an unnatural way. When this occurs, scar tissue can build up and cause pain as well as a decreased range of motion in the area. Minimally invasive Tenex can be used to remove this built up scar tissue, improving your range of motion and reducing tendon or fascia pain.
What does the Tenex procedure involve?
Our experienced physicians at Performance Health use diagnostic testing to determine exactly where the unhealthy tissue is located in your body. Once it is located, your doctor will use very precise microscopic cutting to remove all of the damaged and diseased tissue. Your entire scar tissue treatment can be done during a short office visit and usually only causes minor swelling. In many cases, you can begin returning to your normal activities within weeks.
