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.
