Are you bothered by chronic joint or tendon pain?

You cannot figure out why the pain lasts long. An X-ray examination will tell you nothing is wrong. Pain killers are the only help. Can you imagine that new abnormal tiny blood vessels and nerve fibres are the cause of your chronic pain?

Joint and tendon conditions that do not resolve quickly can develop in long lasting pain conditions that are difficult to treat with standard therapies. We found out that the long-lasting local chronic pain is caused by abnormal tiny blood vessels and accompanying nerve fibers that have developed over time in the painful area. These blood vessels are abnormal capillaries that are unnecessary for your body.
Blood vessels and nerve fibers increase together which means not only nerve fibers but also blood vessels have increased in the painful area. Besides, Once you reduce the abnormal capillaries to make your vessels normal, the chronic pain disappears easily. Okuno Clinic's Endovascular Pain Relief Treatment makes it come true.
