Upper extremities include your hands, wrists, forearms, elbows, arms, and shoulders. Pain in your upper extremity can make it difficult to perform daily activities. Whether it’s brushing your hair, driving a car, or typing at a computer, you use your upper extremities hundreds of times throughout the day! If you are experiencing pain due to an injury or underlying condition, custom orthotics can help. For more information, contact HealthQuest Physical Therapy today.
