On the dot. On we go. The diagnosis has been confirmed. There’s something wrong with your hands. And what would you know? Previously, the perception may have been that orthopedic work had everything to do with the feet. But far from it. And if you are a so-called blue collar worker, then you should be relieved. Apart from being on your feet a lot of the time, you do have a tendency to use your hands a lot, don’t you?
And at any time, you could injure yourself. And a serious injury could book you off of work for a considerable amount of time. Time being money, this could potentially mean losing out on regular pay not all employers are generous or have the ability to tide guys like you over. And after many years on the job, it’s finally time to retire. Problem with this though is that, what with the hands becoming a lot less productive than it was used to over the years; it’s suddenly become prone to other ‘malfunctions’.

Orthopedic hand surgeon Houston consultancy work may very well be prescribed by your GP. And there you go. Orthopedic work is not confined to the feet; it treats the hands as well. Whew! What a relief.
But you thought that all was lost for you. Now let this be a lesson to you as well. Anything minor (in your hands) should never be ignored. And don’t chance your arm with ‘quick-fix’ over the counter ‘solutions’. They don’t always work. And even if they did, you can bet your bottom dollar that the symptoms will be back.
