Two Strong Arms

Building upper body strength requires two strong arms and a steady supply of determination. Training with a complete right arm and a left arm that ended at the elbow made it impossible for Max to achieve muscle symmetry.

By seeking out an upper limb prosthetic specialist, he discovered a path that led to two strong arms and relief from chronic pain. No pain, lots of gain!
