I broke my left wrist so I had surgery and a plate was installed.

I had no practical use of my hand, it hurt constantly, and I was out of work for a year.

My doctor said I should get used to the fact that my hand would never be the same again. A life with constant pain? A life without playing the violin? It depressed the hell out of me.

But then I had the good fortune of going to Hands On Care.

After a long and demanding period of therapy, I now have the full use of my hand.  Once again I can play music. I can take a shower and button my shirt just as before and with no pain.

My case was a tough one and I strongly believe if I had gone to simply a good therapist instead of a great one, I’d still have no use of my hand, or limited use at best. But Saba happened to be a great therapist. She’s probably the best in Northern California.

She is extraordinarily skilled and professional.

I’m convinced that because I went to her instead of somebody else, I can now use my hand again.

Looking back to the day that I fell…September 13, 2012, to where I am now…3 years later, it makes me become very emotional! Not in a bad way, but in a very good way, because I know that I owe the use of my dominant right hand, fingers, arm, elbow replacement, and shoulder not only to my very skilled surgeon, Dr. Edward Damore, but also to all of the therapists who feverishly worked hard to help me to regain the rotation and movement that I currently have today.
