Find an End to Your Heel Pain

Many people underestimate just how much they actually move and walk throughout an entire day.

For those dealing with pain or discomfort in their heel, every step can be a constant reminder of how integ

Heel Pain

ral motion is to our everyday lives, and just how debilitating it can be when pain stands in the way.
Unfortunately, common tendon conditions localized to the heel, such as 

achilles tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, and heel spurs, can be the result of overuse and degradation from this regular daily activity.

However, individuals who regularly participate in intense physical activity, like exercising or sports, are more susceptible to these types of injuries.

The doctors at the Reston, Manassas and Leesburg Foot and Ankle Centers have a deep understanding of the root causes of heel pain, as well as the best way to treat it. Local Reston and Manassas heel pain sufferers no longer have to worry about the consequences of tendon damage thanks to the Tenex Health TX System.

Developed in collaboration with the Mayo Clinic, this procedure involves the use of ultrasound imaging coupled with the TX MicroTip; a tool designed to break down and remove damaged tissue with the utmost precision, while leaving the surrounding healthy tissue intact.

Once the damaged tissue is extracted, the tendon can fully heal, effectively eliminating the pain.
Unlike many other tendon repair operations, this advanced technique requires only a minor incision. Reston and Manassas heel pain sufferers can have this performed as a minor outpatient procedure, often even with the patient wide awake.
After identifying the primary source of the pain, a local anesthetic is applied to numb the area. The ultrasonic waves breaking down the injured tissue only feels like a slight pressure.
For Reston and Manassas heel pain patients who desire to rid themselves of their chronic discomfort, contact Reston Foot and Ankle Center at (703) 437-6333 to learn more about this advanced procedure.
