2% of the population will suffer from elbow pain at some point in their life. While it may not be the most common cause of pain, it certainly can be frustrating. Overuse injuries are very frequent in this body part, but full, permanent resolution can be difficult.
Fortunately, having a complete assessment allows for proper treatment and full resolution. This is what we do at our office! Our average patient has suffered from pain for more than 6 months and seen 2-3 other providers before finding relief in our office!
Our services aren’t for everyone, but If you are tired of that annoying, frustrating pain that just won’t go away, we invite you to schedule a consultation with us to start getting answers!

Now pull back on the fingers as far as you can. Does it point back to your arm? is it painful or limited? If you failed any part of this test, we may be able to help. Click below to schedule an appointment.
"I would like to highly recommend Mike Danenberg and his staff at performance therapy. As a 54 yr old runner and one who has competed since age 14 i thought i knew a good bit about running. After having Mike observe my form i felt like a running virgin. He showed me a much more efficeient form that would help reduce my injuries as well as keep my speed. He explains things in a very easy to understand method and is extremely patient with my many questions. He also has an excellent knack with young runners and puts them at ease right away. His work with my daughter and her shin problems was phenomenal. His approach of finding the cause of a pain and not just chasing the pain away is much more beneficial if you plan on being in this sport for the long haul. I would highly recommend mike and performance therapy if you are having any running related problems."
