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 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.
"Throughout my years of training beginning in High School with the 5k, College with the 8k, and then continuing on with the marathon and beyond I have always relied on professional advice to properly train my body to perform at it's highest ability. I had the luxury of physical trainers, coaches, and equipment throughout High School and College and utilized them weekly. When I moved to Greenville in 2009 I quickly realized the absence of a reliable physical therapy resource and watched my rate of injury increase. Performance Therapy came highly recommended through numerous success stories of other local athletes competing at all levels and I decided to attend one of their running clinics. I was very impressed that the entire staff of Performance Therapy came to the free event and could tell they genuinely cared about each individual athlete. This same personal treatment is felt every time I come in for an appointment and interact with the thorough staff. My performances have spoken to the comprehensive analysis' and experiences I have had and will continue to have at Performance Therapy. Thank you for helping me maintain a high level of fitness, for your unselfish community outreach, and your unwavering dedication to helping athletes achieve their goals!"
