Customer Question
My son plays professional basketball...
My son plays professional basketball overseas and was hit in the forearm a few days ago. He notices some swelling now. Not painful. When he shoots the basketball and he flexes his wrist it feels as if the tendon is pulling. Is there anyway he can Facetime you to see what it looks like or maybe he can video it and send it to you?
