Treat tendinitis without traditional surgery

HASTINGS, Mich. (WOOD) There are some aches and pains we simply live with because we don’t want to undergo surgery, but if you suffer from tendinitis, there is a treatment that’s not as drastic as traditional surgery.

Pennock Health Services uses the Tenex Health TX System. It’s a minor surgical intervention that’s performed under local anesthetic. The machine is the size of an old desktop computer. The doctor uses ultrasound to guide a pen that uses fluid to remove diseased tissue.

Tendinitis can be caused from everyday activities, exercise, or trauma, and can lead to a tear if not treated. Symptoms include stiffness, tenderness, burning, throbbing, or stabbing pain, or a sharp sting.

The Tenex Health TX System is a good option for anyone who has treated their symptoms of tendinitis, and continues to have pain. If you want to learn more about this option, call Pennock Health Services’ Advanced Orthopedic & Pain Institute at (269) 945-9520 or toll free at (800) 596-1005.
