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!
A helthy elbow, wrist and hand should be able to extend the wrist back to 90 degrees and the fingers should approach 60 degrees. To thry this test at home, stand facing the wall. Place the forearm at shoulder height, extend the wrist with the opposite arm. Does it make it to 90 degrees? Is it painful?
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.
"Coming from a landlocked country in Africa and becoming the top female Olympic swimmer in the world has been possible because of the people I surround myself with. Mike and his team from Performance Therapy have been an integral part of my lead up to my 5th Olympic Games in Rio. As an older (wiser) athlete I know what it takes to be successful and I trust Mike's experience and knowledge. Thank you for everything you have helped me with and with everything you do for other athletes."
