TESS is a medical treatment device designed to relieve tension on the tissue affected by plantar fasciitis to reduce pain and healing time significantly.

TESS may be covered under your HSA or flexible spending account.  Check with your insurance provider to be sure.

If you have found SAE Orthopedics, it is most likely because you are experiencing symptoms of plantar fasciitis.

Plantar fasciitis (plan-tar fash-she-eye-tiss) is experienced as a painful stabbing or burning sensation in the bottom of your foot. It is worse in the mornings or after extended periods of rest and improves as you move around and your leg muscles stretch out. If you are experiencing this sensation and think you might have plantar fasciitis, then you have come to the right place. SAE Orthopedics is here to offer you information and potential solutions for your plantar fasciitis injury.

Plantar Fasciitis

Are you confident that you are experiencing plantar fasciitis?


If so, let us introduce you to TESS.


TESS is the reason SAE Orthopedics exists. Dr. Mike Davis invented TESS after 30 years practicing as an orthopedic surgeon. In those three decades, medicine made little progress in treating plantar fasciitis. Dr. Davis knew there was a better way of treating this injury, so he invented TESS. TESS is safer and more effective than traditional methods of treating plantar fasciitis.
