What is Tendonitis?
A tendon is a type of tissue that serves to connect muscles to bones. Tendonitis occurs when this tissue becomes inflamed, which can cause dull aches, joint pain, swelling, and/or tenderness in the area. One of the most common forms of tendonitis is Achilles tendonitis, which occurs on the heel. However, tendonitis can appear on several parts of the body, including the hips, knees, shoulders, wrists, and elbows. Dr. Christie Lehman is a Regenexx® partner who is well-versed in the forms of treatment for tendonitis, which can allow our patients in Asheville, NC to eliminate their pain without the need for corrective surgery.

"The ARO staff and practice are Special from the Front Desk to the treatment rooms. I first approached Dr. Lehman with numerous orthopedic issues. She has examined, evaluated, and described viable treatments for each, beginning with the least invasive. I was able to choose from her recommendations based on my preferences and circumstances. I am still a work in progress and experiencing excellent improvement ! All of that is great. But, it is the Caring which guides the whole process that makes Dr. Lehman and the experience So Special !!"- T.D. / Google / May 11, 2021
"Dr Lehaman takes pride in her practice . I can not reccomend her enough. She takes pride in her work and wants her patients to feel better. I wish I would have met her 2 years ago before all the other treatment I went through. I was so much better in 3 weeks and could use my arm again after 2 years of not being able to... I would give a 100 stars if I could"- D.S. / Google / Feb 17, 2021

"Dr. Lehman is the reason my 99 year old mother is still able to keep walking, relatively pain free. Because of her age, no one will perform surgery on my mothers knees. Dr. Lehman meet with mom about 3 years to discuss what can actually be done to help mom with her painful knees. Since that time, mom has been able to get fairly long term relief from the treatments Dr. Lehman has offered. Thank you Dr. Lehman, we owe you so much!!"- N.A. / Google / Jan 19, 2021
