Tendons are tissues that connect foot muscles to bones. Alongside the muscles, they help move the bones in the joints.
Tendon damage may cause the affected area to feel numb, weak and painful. Tendons could become irritated which cause tenderness and may need to be treated with a splint, anti-inflammatory medications or physical therapy. Surgery may be necessary for patients with torn tendons that have marked decreased mobility due to the injury or are in great pain.
At Lexington Foot, Ankle & Vein, we will evaluate the extent of your tendon damage and recommend the right course of treatment that will repair the injured tendon and relieve pain and tenderness.
Tenex Health TX™ is a minimally invasive technology designed to precisely break down and gently extract damaged tendon tissue. Since the surrounding healthy tissue is not disturbed, patients enjoy less discomfort and quicker recovery times versus traditional open surgical procedures.
Tenex Health TX achieves the same goal as open surgery, but is minimally invasive and performed using a local anesthetic. Most patients return to normal activities within 2-6 weeks.
