According to a 2016 Bureau of Labor Statistics report, hand and wrist injuries combined for almost 17 lost days of work per 10,000 full-time workers. Shockingly, hand and wrist injuries were second only to back injuries, which accounted for just over 17 days – and were far greater than the 9 days recorded for knees and 8 days for shoulders.
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.
"Ten years ago, I began at Performance Therapy a former Division I college tennis player with residual injuries causing neck, shoulder and foot problems. Fast forward to now, and you have an entirely different person. I am migraine-free. I am injury-free. In 2011 alone, I have completed three marathons, a 50-miler, two 100-milers, a 100k, five Ironman events (three in three consecutive weeks), three 70.3s, and an Ultraman (6.2-mile swim, 262-mile bike, 52.4-mile run) plus qualified for the Ironman World Championships in Kona-all on a foot with a screw in it. Honestly, I owe all of it to Performance Therapy. It is nothing short of incredible that I have been able to undertake this sort of schedule with no glitches, no injuries whatsoever. Fred Ossmann has kept me strong and flexible (for me!), and Mike puts "Humpty Dumpty" back together again after all of the training and racing. Office Manager Katie has a full-time job keeping up with my crazy schedule and following up with my travel to races. They are part of my family."
