"Caring, knowledgeable, helpful for my fractured hand AND my being. Their positivity made a stressful situation for me seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. My appointments left me with a smile for recovery. HIGHLY RECOMMEND."

"If you need a professional and non-intimidating physical therapist I HIGHLY recommend Elite Hand & Upper Extremity Therapy! I've had 2 hand surgeries this year and after being treated by Danny, PT and owner of Elite Hand & Upper Extremity Therapy, for the first hand I insisted going back for my second. Danny makes therapy fun and less painful. He's friendly, personable, smart as a whip, and professional. In addition, his office assistant, Emily, is kind, considerate, friendly, and so helpful. She called my insurance to ensure that my insurance would cover my visits, and I didn't even have to ask her to! She's that thoughtful! Also, going to Elite supports local business. I'm actually sad that my therapy is over! I've healed faster than my doctor expected thanks to Elite! You're getting the best from the best!"

"What a miracle worker Danny is. If you ever injure your Upper Extremities see Elite Occupational Therapist. I came in with a my hand fractured in 2 places & fractured wrist. Had been to Physical Therapy for two months with no results of hand & wrist movement. Then I was told to see a Occupational Hand Therapist by a Hand Specialist. By this time I couldn't even close my hand in a fist & was worried that I wouldn't get complete use of my hand. After only seven visits I'm able to use my hand and yes make a fist! My fingers & wrist now can move without pain and my strength is getting better everyday. ** I highly recommend Elite Hand and Upper Extremity Therapy**."

"I’ve known Danny as an occupational therapist for several years. He’s a very loving and caring clinician. He thinks long and hard about what’s troubling you and the best way to assist in getting you back to a new normal. Not that I would want to go back to him , but in case I needed to, I surely will without hesitation. It’s not a job for Danny it’s a calling-- to provide the best hand and upper extremity occupational therapy possible."

"My journey began on June 15, 2021, with rotator cuff surgery on my right shoulder. After six weeks of not moving my shoulder and arm, I was quite hesitant to begin a therapy program.
I met Danny on July 16, 2021, and from our very first meeting I knew I was in good hands! When we first began therapy, I was not able to raise my right arm to shoulder height and had no arm strength. Danny introduced a series of passive motion exercises to help recover the muscles and tendons. We then progressed to active motion exercises, and we are currently working on strength and resistance exercises.
He is making my recovery safe, healthy, and practically pain-free. My flexibility is returning, and my strength is getting better every day.
I would highly recommend Elite Hand and Upper Extremity Therapy for anyone who needs pain management or rehabilitation."

"I broke my arm in 3 places back in February, as a result I'm left with nerve damage. I've been a hairstylist on the grand strand for over 20 years, so it's been a emotional rollercoaster. Lot's of details in between but if it were not for Danny an his level of professionalism an expertise I would not be this far in my path to healing. My doctor order a special brace, that had to be made just for me, he said my OT could make it,they could not. I was introduced to Danny an his team, they went above an beyond to make the brace for me, including meeting me at 7am on the 1st day of his family vacation! If you want to recover from injuries you have to seek the best! I highly recommend Danny an his team at Elite!"

"Danny is great ! He is very professional and knowledgeable. I had to go to a hand specialist for therapy while I was in North Carolina. I am so glad I found Danny. After little movement from tendon and wrist surgery, he got my wrist moving and feeling better. I would definitely recommend him to anyone for hand and upper extremity needs."

"This is my second time coming to Danny and also the second splint he has made for me!! I received a call less than an hour from leaving the Drâ€™s office to schedule an appointment. He was able to accommodate my work schedule and was very particular with the finished product. Danny continuously checks on my progress and never fails to reassure me that I can come back to the office at anytime to have my splint adjusted i if needed!! Thank you Danny for all of your hard work and dedication to your patients!!! "

"My experience at Elite Hand and Upper Extremity Therapy has been fantastic. I was diagnosed with frozen shoulder and originally attended therapy at a different facility in Myrtle Beach. After nearly 3 months of therapy, my frozen shoulder got worse. My orthopedic doctor then referred me to Elite Hand and Upper Extremity Therapy and within three weeks my mobility began to increase tremendously. I was able to get dressed without help, blow dry my hair, reach things on the upper shelves, sleep without pain, and just have increased movement and quality of life in general. In a short amount of time, I felt like I began to get back to my old self. The difference in quality of care was amazing! Danny at Elite allowed me to video the exercises for homework so I would remember how to do them correctly and he also provided me with all the equipment I need to be able to complete the exercises at home. I am so thankful I found Elite Hand and Upper Extremity!"

"When I got surgery I had essentially no movement in my left wrist. The first day of therapy week took measurements of my wrist and then set up a plan to regain function. Originally I thought I would dread going to therapy but it happened to be the opposite. Danny made the visits enjoyable and made sure to keep me updated on my progress. At this point I have regained almost all function in my wrist and can do everything I used to!"

"I started therapy with Danny 6 weeks post rotator cuff repair. I had been protecting by arm and by that I mean I didn't use my arm for a total of 6 months. Prior to starting therapy, I was petrified of therapy. Danny immediately put me at ease. He listened to my concerns and fears and then he talked me through my therapy. He was very honest and open about the PT. He reassured me that if I was to have any pain I was to let him know. My therapy is now 3 months post op and my surgeon was very pleased with my progress. Therapy is a two way street. You definitely have to do exercises at home and I worked hard to be certain I would regain full use of my arm. Danny has been awesome and I will refer him to anyone I know that has or needs therapy to their hands or upper extremity! I will actually miss not seeing him 3 times a week. but I know he is only a phone call away!"

"As my surgery was performed in Columbia, my surgeon asked me to search for an Occupational Therapist in North Myrtle Beach, where I currently reside. He told me to search for a hand specialist. I stopped in at a PT clinic and asked for a hand specialist. They didnâ€™t have one, but it just so happened that this personâ€™s friend had just gone out on his own to open Elite Hand & Upper Extremity Therapy in June after working in the hospital for some time. Boy, was that my lucky day-to have met Danny Burkhart. He is Professional, caring and displays utmost Expertise in his field. He explains things concerning my surgery that I didnâ€™t know and why I should do certain exercises to assist with speeding my recovery. He is very patient and understanding! I am very happy with my progress and highly recommend Danny for any of the services that he offers. I feel like I have found a new friend that Iâ€™ll be staying in touch with. Congratulations, Danny and best wishes to you! "

He is both personal and professional as he administers the exercises. I always felt good after leaving a session because of his encouraging remarks. This is why I give Danny and Elite Therapy 5 stars! âï¸ âï¸ âï¸âï¸âï¸ "

"After reading all of the other reviews there isnâ€™t much more for me to say except that I agree with everyone of them. This was my first experience with any kind of injury so I didnâ€™t know what to expect. Danny put me at ease and was very kind and patient. I feel that I had the best therapy that I could get and would highly recommend him. Thanks Danny"

"Danny was great following my wrist surgery. At my first appointment I could not even straighten my arm (my surgeon had warned me that the recovery process for this surgery was not easy!) and by the end, I had gained back better motion in my arm & hand than even the surgeon expected. Danny was so encouraging along the way. "

and laid out a plan for me to be my best self. Due to hard work and perseverance we
achieved our goals.
Danny is a master at his craft and knows how to get the most out of his patients. "
