Do you have tendon pain in your shoulder, elbow, knee, or foot?

Has this pain been bothering you for more than four months?

Have you tried rest, physical therapy, or injection, and nothing seems to relieve the pain?

If you have answered yes to any of these questions, you may have chronic tendonitis and should speak to your doctor or foot & ankle specialist about TenJet.

Causes of Tendon Pain

Tendons are strong, flexible bands of connective tissue that connect muscle to bone, and transmit the energy needed to allow muscles and bones to create movement. Ligaments are similar in nature but they connect bone to bone in order to maintain, position and structure, and control movement of joints. Tendon and ligament injuries can result from activities that involve repetitive motion, and over time these injuries can generate micro-tears within the collagen fibers of the tendon. When a tendon is unable to heal, scar tissue can form which may cause pain and limit range of motion.

Frequent Areas of Tendon Pain

Achilles tendinitis

Elbow tendinitis

Knee tendinitis

Shoulder tendinitis
