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 Micro-Tip, 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:

  • Have chronic pain in their shoulder, elbow, knee, Achilles or plantar fascia for three months or longer
