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.
"I have been using the services of Performance Therapy and Mike Danenberg weekly for over two years. Training for Ironman races is extremely tough on my body. Mike has successfully guided me back from injury with remarkable speed, and each time I?ve come back stronger. His preventative injury and core strengthening philosophy continues to help me reach new heights in my athletic aspirations. Bottom line for me: ?You?ll never know how good you can become unless you go see Mike. He is the stepping stone to the next level and beyond."
