Brian Neville, OTR/L, CWCE

I can answer questions about both conservative and post-operative rehabilitation for UPPER extremity injuries. These include but are not limited to: fractures, tendon repairs, tendon transfers, nerve repairs, lacerations, tenolysis procedures, TFCC injuries, repetitive motion disorders, reconstructive procedures. I have an advanced knowledge of UPPER extremity anatomy and industrial rehabilitation. I have extensive splinting skills for injuries to the upper extremity. Although not a physician or a surgeon I have worked closely with world renowned upper extremity specialists for over 10 years. I can give general information on what some of the most common upper extremity surgeries involve. I can reference those procedures as well. PLEASE DON'T ASK ME QUESTIONS ABOUT ANYTHING OTHER THAN THE NECK, SHOULDER, ARM/HAND. I'M NOT QUALIFIED AND KNOW ABSOLUTELY ZERO ABOUT BACKS/HIPS/KNEES/ANKLES/ETC. THANK YOU!!!

Nancy Brough, MA, former speech pathologist

I can answer any question about swallowing disorders and acquired and/or developmental communication disorders. Examples are aphasia, brain injury (traumatic or from strokes), and degenerative neurologic diseases. I also have specialized knowledge in craniofacial disorders (i.e., cleft palate.)

Probably tendonitis.  If not an acute injury where you heard a pop or felt a sharp pain, it shouldn't be a tendon rupture or tear.      I would look into bicipital tendonitis or supraspinatus tendonitis

2016-09-02 Bicep pain after working out:

Simple case of doing too much after 7 months out of the gym.  Muscles respond to stress but when over stressed they become "damaged" temporarily until rest and healing can occur.  This is the same reason

2016-08-17 Will My Hurt Knuckle Heal On Its Own:

Sorry for the delay in my response.  You could have sprained a ligament in which certain things can be done to rest the tissue and allow for healing.  An exam from an orthopedic physician would be needed
