a. There is some pain in the right arm elbow to our 7 month old baby started crying because of twisted her hands when trying to crawling here and there
It was a weekday afternoon and I was at work as usual.
My Wife had a fall and had dislocated her left shoulder joint and this was put back under anaesthesia. But following fall, she developed severe burning sensation and weakness in the left hand. My wife was struggling to do any work and even struggling to look after her self. She has been taking various medications for that but did not improve. Then we met Dr Damodaran through practo in his clinic. we didn't need to wait long as it was by appointment and the staffs were pleasant. Dr Damodaran examined my wife thoroughly and diagnosed that she had isolated nerve injury and called it ulnar nerve neuropraxia due to dislocation. Apparently this is unusual occurrence. He suggested physiotherapy to start with. I must say within few days my wife experienced improvement and the burning sensation reduced. and her tablets intake came down drastically. The physiotherapist in his clinic was experienced and she could teach simple things. Dr Damodaran's correct diagnosis and timely treatment helped my wife gain her strength. She has improved a lot.
