This content was provided by Dr. Akhtar ""Trying to figure out what ails someone greatly sparks my interest. I take great pride in solving a mystery.

Dr. Akhtar fixed my tendinitis in my wrist using TENS therapy! I had gone to a hand surgeon and got a steroid shot in my wrist and it did not help. It got bigger and it was still painful. When I left Dr. Akhtar with no more splint. Thank you, I will be calling you if I have pain ANYWHERE!
