  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome " Sheila a 52-year-old woman visits her family doctor "

    Sheila, a 52-year-old woman visits her family doctor with a three-month history of numbness affecting her hands. She notices the numbness primarily at nighttime or in the morning when she awakes. She has to shake her hands for approximately five minutes to get rid of the numbness. She has recently noticed some numbness during daytime activities such as blow-drying her hair or driving the car. Again, the symptoms are reversible and do improve when she maintains her wrist in a straightened position or uses splints for her wrist at nighttime. The nighttime numbness is occasionally associated with pain primarily along the palmar aspect of her wrist and forearm.

    Examination by her physician does not reveal any neurological dysfunction, however her symptoms can be recreated by maintaining her wrist in a flexed position for five minutes.

    Sheila could potentially benefit from seeing a physiotherapist for mobilization of the joints, an orthopedic surgeon to assess her condition and her local pharmacist. Also, seeing a rheumatologist may be prudent. A bracing specialist may also be able to help with joint stabilization which may help her in her daily activities.

  • Trigger Finger Injury  " Steve is a 55-year-old man with pain after using a pressure washer "

    Steve is a 55-year-old man who presents to his family doctor with symptoms of pain and catching to his left long finger that started two weeks ago. The symptoms started after a weekend of using a pressure washer. He initially developed some pain at the palmar base (knuckles) of his long finger. Currently, Steve describes locking of his finger in a flexed position in the morning when he wakes up. He has to manually unlock the finger to straighten it. Within fifteen minutes of awakening the locking does appear to subside.

    Physical examination reveals full range of motion to his digits. He does have some localized tenderness about the palmar base of his long finger along with a small nodule along the flexor tendon (the tendon that allows the finger to curl).

    Steve could potentially benefit from seeing a physiotherapist for mobilization of the joint, an orthopedic surgeon to assess if surgery is necessary, and his local pharmacist for pain control medications. A bracing specialist may also be able to help with joint stabilization which may help him in his daily activities. Lastly, seeing a nutritionist may help Steve choose foods that help reduce inflammation caused by arthritis.

  • Symptoms of Tennis Elbow " Dan a 38-year-old man with six-months of pain to the lateral aspect (outer side) of his dominant elbow "

    Dan is a 38-year-old man who presents to his physician with a six-month history of pain to the lateral aspect (outer side) of his dominant elbow. His problem started gradually after beginning a new exercise program at the gym. His symptoms have become worse, to the point that he has great difficulty lifting a dumbbell or at times even using a salt shaker. He has had to give up his exercise program as this has not improved his symptoms.

    On examination there are no visible changes to his elbow. He has tenderness over the right lateral epicondyle (tennis elbow). Any stress applied on the radial wrist extensors exacerbates his symptoms.

    Dan could potentially benefit from seeing a physiotherapist for mobilization of the joint, an orthopedic surgeon to assess if surgery is necessary and his local pharmacist for pain control medications. A bracing specialist may also be able to help with joint stabilization which may help him in his daily activities. Lastly, seeing a nutritionist may help him choose foods that help reduce inflammation caused by arthritis.

    I was referred to Dr. Perey by another surgeon after failed attempts of physiotherapy, cortizone injections, and MRI results that were inconclusive. Dr. Perey diagnosed me as having intersection syndrome and I was scheduled for a tendon release surgery. After viewing the videos on this site, I opted for a regional block and was able to observe the surgery. Dr. Perey did an amazing job! It has been two months since the surgery and I am slowly progressing in my strength conditioning with my hand therapist. I will be seeing Dr. Perey again in a few weeks for a follow up and look forward to his opinion on my progression.
