Patient: When I first came in, my symptoms were.I had numbness all through my left arm. I couldn’t extend my ring finger all the way. I couldn’t feel anything in my pinky finger. My wrist hurt. My elbow hurt. And I had limited range of motion.all around. And a lot of grip weakness, too. Interviewer: And what was your diagnosis? Patient: Ulnar neuropathy. Um.pinched nerve from a bad bike fit. Before I came here I was banned from riding my bike, lifting weights, carrying dishes, carrying groceries.doing pretty much anything with my hand. I couldn’t open doors very well. I couldn’t really open jars.
At the Mettler Institute, I came in twice a week for half an hour session. Um, I’ve had eight sessions. And with every session it hurt a little bit, but at the end of the session there was a noticeable difference. Like my finger was a straighter. I could feel a little bit more. I could move a little bit more. Um, once I got to move onto grip training, every week my grip was getting stronger and I could start doing things again. I’ve been going to the gym for the past couple weeks. And I get my bike back today, so I can start riding again. And I’ve been able to do daily tasks. I can open my door and jars and stuff, so. At the Institute, people here are very friendly, and it’s a very comfortable setting to be in. It’s easy to find. And it’s a nice.office. At the Mettler Institute, there are actual s of physical therapy.
So, they know how the body works, they know how to treat it and they know how to make it better.
