If you have chronic tendon pain lasting 3 months or more from:

• Tennis / golfer's elbow

• Hip tendinosis

• Jumper / runner's knee

• Achilles tendinosis

• Plantar fasciitis

You may benefit from Tenex procedure

Tenex Procedure

  • Outpatient 15 minute procedure

  • Ultrasound guided to evaluate tendon and treat only diseased portion

  • Local anesthetic only

  • No stitches, just small bandage

  • 99.99% of cases performed without complication

Is Tenex Right For Me?

  • Can you point with one finger where your pain is the worst?

  • Have you experienced pain for 3 months or longer and is it worse upon movement?

  • Have you tried conservative treatments (ice, rest, physical therapy, braces) to address your pain?

  • Have you experienced a reduction in or modification to your activity level due to your pain?

In our experience, if you have answered yes to these questions you are likely a candidate for Tenex procedure.

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is a common problem that causes pain under the heel bone often with lengthy walks and prolonged standing. It is most often seen in middle-aged men and women.

Plantar fascia is a thick band of tissue that lies at the bottom of the foot. It runs from the heel bone to the toe and forms the arch of the foot. The plantar fascia functions as a shock absorber and also supports the arch of the foot.

Too much pressure over the fascia may damage or tear away the tissue and can be a cause of heel pain. It is also possible that when the plantar fascia gets overstretched or overused repeatedly, there may be irritation or inflammation of the fascia. Inflammation of the plantar fascia causes plantar fasciitis.

Risk Factors For Plantar Fasciitis

Conservative Therapy

  • Medications - non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or Corticosteroid shots

  • Rest

  • Ice

  • Supportive shoes

  • Physical Therapy

  • Obesity 

  • Long-distance running

  • Occupations that necessitate walking or standing on hard surfaces for long periods of time

  • Wearing shoes with poor arch support or thin-soled shoes.

Tennis Elbow/Golfers Elbow

  • Focal pain over the outside (Tennis) or inside (Golfer) of the elbow.

  • Risk Factors: Repetitive motions of the wrist and arm are more likely to develop tennis elbow. Examples include plumbers, painters, carpenters, butchers and cooks.

  • While tennis elbow affects people of all ages, it's most common in adults between the ages of 30 and 50.

Shoulder Tendinitis

  • Risks Factors: Improper technique in any sport is one of the primary causes that contribute to tendinitis. People with jobs that require overhead work (such as assembly work) and heavy lifting are at risk of tendonitis.  

  • Symptoms: Shoulder clicking and/or an arc of shoulder pain when your arm is about shoulder height, pain when lying on the sore shoulder or lifting with a straight arm, shoulder pain or clicking when you move your hand behind your back or head, and general shoulder and upper arm pain. As your shoulder tendonitis deteriorates, your shoulder pain may even be present at rest.

Other Treatment Areas

  • Hip tendinosis

  • Jumper / runner's knee

  • Achilles tendinosis
