I recently had a chance to say hi to Hoang Tran OT/L, CHT of www.handsOTS.com over a Zoom call. Hands on Therapy Services has a strong reputation for taking the time to listen to their clients and to get to know them. Hoang's personality is a big plus too -- I get the sense that she can make something painful kind of fun, offer hope to the hurting, and use her impressive skills to heal others.
For a few years now I have been following @Hands_On_Therapy_Services on Instagram and have been blown away with how they are using RistRoller in their practice. I am grateful that I had a chance to chat with Hoang and hear more about how she uses RistRoller pre- and post op for conditions such as trigger finger. She also uses RistRoller for torn triceps, distal radial fractures, and to prevent scar tissue. She explains that foam rolling helps to lay the fibers down flat after an operation, so this has been great for scar tissue prevention.
Hoang's biggest tip is "Not to suffer too long" before seeking help. Many people wait years to get help, sometimes only because a condition became excruciating. Why do people wait? Maybe they have been disappointed in the past. Perhaps they think they can't be helped. A lot of us are guilty of this -- so don't suffer! Chase wellness down, and find a compatible professional to guide you on your healing journey.
