I had elbow pain and I could not fully extend it. This really affected my ability to play goalie for the USA beach handball team. I felt really frustrated especially when I could not solve this myself. I tried to massage the muscles around my elbow but it did not work the way I thought. The pain persisted and I didn’t know what to do next.
At first, I was debating on going to see Dr. Nick, who was helping out a lot of athletes at the 2018 Pan American Beach Handball Games in Oceanside. But I am glad that I made the right decision to see him. I let him work on my left arm and figure out exactly why my elbow was in pain and more importantly what to do to fix it. Thank You Dr. Nick and the rest of the guys from Level4 for coming out and supporting us.
As an athlete first, I love being apart of the team and the journey that comes with that. The practices, team bonding, and competition is why I play. I am really happy when Dr. Nick helped me solve my problem and get me back on track to prepare for the Beach Handball World Championships in Russia.
