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.
"I wanted to take a moment to thank Mike Danenberg at Performance Therapy. He was instrumental in helping me achieve my racing goals this year. Most recently, I was in the last weeks of training for the Marine Corp Marathon and I found myself with tremendous hip flexor pain and strain. To say I walked into Mike's office limping was an understatement; I was seriously considering not running the marathon I trained so hard for. After weekly treatments and following my stretching instructions, I was feeling a lot better and made the journey to Washington, DC and completed the race. Mike helped me to recover quickly from the marathon so I could line up for the Carolinas Spartan Beast two weeks later. I was not only able to complete the Beast, but I felt incredibly strong and was able to beat my time goal. To think I was ready to throw in the towel and now I have an incredible sense of accomplishment (and two beautiful medals)! Thanks Mike, I couldn't have done it without you!"
