If you are an outdoor enthusiast who actively runs, plays tennis, or regularly participates in some type of sport, you most likely experience tendon pain from time to time. Fortunately, you’re not alone. Over 10 million Americans experience tendon pain each year and most cases gradually worsen with time.
Causes of Tendon Pain
Tendon pain is often caused by stress that gradually develops from repetitive motion, such as walking or twisting your waist. When such stress becomes overwhelming, the tissue surrounding the tendon becomes irritated or damaged and causes pain. Depending on the extent of the condition, patients may not be able to accomplish basic activities such as shaking another person’s hand or texting on their smart phone.
Atlanta Orthopedic Treatment For Tendon Pain
Unlike other forms of traditional treatment that tend to address scar tissue pain, one solution called the “Tenex” procedure actively treats the source of tendon pain. Patients who choose this particular option are given a local anesthetic before a microtip is used to break up the damaged scar tissue without compromising their healthy tissue.
The procedure is usually completed within 20 minutes and patients are able to return home on their own. The Tenex option also tends to yield quick results as many of our patients are able to exercise comfortably in two months or less. This is considerably faster than surgical intervention, which can take six months to one year to recover.
