How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice! While putting in the time and hard work to master the scales on the piano or shred on the guitar can take your musical skills to the next level, it can also lead to repetitive motion injuries like trigger finger and carpal tunnel syndrome. A little soreness from time to time can be normal, but prolonged symptoms like weakness, pain, and numbness could be signs of a hand injury with the potential for permanent nerve damage if left untreated.
Dr. Michael Fitzmaurice has pioneered a minimally invasive, revolutionary new technique to help treat musician hand injuries with a safe, efficient procedure to restore optimal hand function and dexterity as quickly as possible. The Endotech System, available exclusively at the Fitzmaurice Hand Institute in Phoenix, uses a small incision and endoscopic technique for a smaller incision, less scarring, and faster recovery time than traditional surgery.
Whether you are looking to undo damage caused by years of playing an instrument or simply want to learn more about what can be done to keep your hands healthy, the team at the Fitzmaurice Hand Institute can help you. Call (480) 568-2824 or fill out the online contact form to learn more.
