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 began competing in 1973. Covering more than 80,000 miles in training and competing in five US Olympic Trials, such long-term wear and tear means I now require a lot of recovery support to remain competitive. I stretch. I ice. I use a foam roller; however, the single biggest factor I have found in avoiding chronic injuries is regular body work with Brad McKay at Performance Therapy SC. He is diligent in understanding my biomechanical needs as a racewalker and has solved a long-term hamstring problem I developed from the constant turns in track races. This allowed me to set a US Master's indoor (50-54) record for the Mile racewalk in March, 2013 at 7:09. Whether you are injured or simply need to maintain supple muscles to excel in your event, I recommend a series of sessions with Brad."
