Neck/Shoulder Pain

Eliminate Neck And Shoulder Pain So You Can Return to A Life You Love Living - Without Taking Painkillers, Risking Surgery Or Having To See Your Doctor!

When neck pain starts it’s easy to think it will just “go away” in a couple of days. Your doctor may tell you to rest and take pain medication to manage your symptoms. As the pain progresses, you realize that you are avoiding activities due to pain. Or worse, you start to believe that neck and shoulder pain is “normal” with aging.

Is that how you are feeling right now?

If so you’re not alone. In fact, every day at Physical Therapy for everyBODY we help people just like you! And when it comes to living with neck and shoulder pain, you want to know:

“Why Do I Still Have Neck & Shoulder Pain?”

or

“What Makes You Different From The Other Physical Therapy Clinic I’ve Tried Before?”

Most people think that all Physical Therapy is the same. If you’ve tried Physical Therapy before and left without having your goals met, there is hope! If your Physical Therapy experience consisted of a generic sheet of exercises without individualized hands on treatment, you’ve had what we call a “typical” Physical Therapy experience.

Sadly, this describes the treatments most people experience before coming to see us. No wonder you may be thinking of getting an injection or taking pain medication, even though they are dangerous and costly. Or that you’re considering the surgery your doctor recommended because you feel like that is the only way to get rid of this pain.

Does That Sound Like You?

Does it feel like no one is really listening to you and hearing what you’re saying? Do you wish that someone would listen to your whole story and put the pieces of this puzzle together for you? We believe that hearing your story is the first step towards building your plan for success.

Are you tired of everyone telling you that neck and shoulder pain is “normal” as you get older? Or that you just need to “give it some time” and rest? If you’re active, or desire to be, rest is rarely the best advice because when you go back to doing what you love, the problem is still there.

Did your doctor tell you to rest, take medication, and “come back in four weeks”? We hear about these visits every day in our Physical Therapy office and we understand your frustration. When you return in 4 weeks…it gets even better! You go back to the doctor because you still have the same pain. You are sent for an MRI which shows some scary findings (which may actually be NORMAL findings). Worse, you’re often advised MORE rest, given yet another prescription of even stronger pills, and offered an injection as your only option. This is incredibly frustrating and explains why so many people aged 39+ are continuing to suffer with chronic lower neck and shoulder pain.

Has This Type of Thing Happened to You?

Why else does neck and shoulder pain last longer than it should? Well, you may be confused because you’ve been told different things, by different people. There are lots of people out there who are happy to dispense advice - but not all of it is credible.

Maybe you think your neck and shoulder pain was caused by doing something - like lifting or sleeping awkwardly. But the truth is it was caused by years and years of poor posture. This caused the muscles in your neck and shoulders to become weak. The lifting or the awkward sleeping position was just the EFFECT of that.

Even if you don’t have pain every day, are you concerned about the pain popping up during the most inconvenient time? Are you worried about being stuck in bed while on a vacation or missing out on time with your family? Do you feel like you are getting old? We understand and we are here to help.

Neck and shoulder pain can be very confusing, especially if you don’t know what to do about it. Or you may be frustrated because you have tried so many things but your neck and shoulder pain is still the same. Confusion and frustration are the biggest reasons why most people just end up accepting it as ‘part of life’ – as if it’s normal and ‘just the way it is’. In fact, some of your friends and family have probably told you…”neck and shoulder pain is normal as you get older”.

Do You Feel That Way Too?

Here’s 7 More Reasons Why Your Neck And Shoulder Pain Could Be Lasting Longer Than It Should:

  • You thought/hoped it would magically go away on its own - but it didn’t.
  • The doctor who told you to rest, take painkillers and muscle relaxers – but the pills did little to help your back and as soon as they wore off your neck and shoulder pain struck again!
  • A family member, or friend, told you that everybody gets neck pain as they get older, so you just accepted it as a ‘normal’ part of aging.
  • You tried other Healthcare Professionals, or even a Physical Therapist in the past, but it just didn’t seem to make your pain better.
  • You searched the internet, watched some video exercises or got ideas that promised immediate relief but they either didn’t do a thing, or even made your neck and shoulder pain ten times worse.
  • You thought it would be a good idea to rest because your neck was so bad or because of number 5 above, but all that did was make it feel even more stiff and tight.
  • You decided to get a few “massages” hoping that would fix the pain. But all they did was feel nice and relaxing. And didn’t do anything to fix it long term.

If any of these have happened to you - we would love to help you by inviting you to book a call to talk with one of our Specialists at our Maple Valley clinic, Physical Therapy for everyBODY, to find out what can be done to help YOU. The fact that you’ve tried any or all of these things already is actually a GOOD THING because when you know what doesn’t work, you are closer to finding the thing that does!

We believe – actually we KNOW – that 90% of all musculoskeletal injuries (aches, pain, and strains) can be solved without prescribing medication, without injections, and certainly without surgery!

What Can I Do to Get Rid of My Neck Pain And Keep It From Coming Back?

Well, here are 4 things you can do:

  • Start by Making a Decision to Get Help From a Specialist - You have seen the doctor who told you to rest, tried the YouTube videos that didn’t work and hoped it would go away. You suddenly find yourself 6 months down the line and nothing has changed except the list of all the things you can’t do.
  • Do The RIGHT ExercisesOne of the best things to help you ease your neck and shoulder pain is the correct series of progressed exercises. The right exercises given to you by a Specialist Physical Therapist will provide pain relief and allow you to move more easily. And we can make sure that you get to the root of what’s causing the problem, so it won’t come back anytime soon (or aggravate your back and make it even worse like some exercises do).
  • Avoid Sitting and Long Periods of Rest - Ever struggle to get up from the couch after watching TV for an hour because your back feels painful and tight? One of the worst things for neck and shoulder pain is rest and sitting for long periods of time. Too much rest and sitting in awkward positions, like when you are watching TB, makes your neck stiff and tight. It would really help if you were given the right tools to actually help your back move better. Along with hands-on treatment, to get you active and healthy as quickly as possible.
  • Get Real, Hands-On Physical Therapy - Physical Therapy is proven to help people with neck and shoulder pain. In fact, at Physical Therapy for everyBODY it’s a very common issue. If your neck and shoulder pain is affecting your job, your ability to keep active, if it threatens your independence or gets in the way of spending quality time with family and friends - Physical Therapy can help get you back to living the life you deserve as quickly as possible.

My back pain was preventing me from doing the things that I wanted to do and I was in constant pain daily. I was constantly worried about how bad my back was hurting. I tried exercising more. I tried not exercising at all. I tried heating, cooling, pretty much every other thing that there was out there that I could do myself.

Extremely gentle. And that's another thing that's amazing to me, how just a small little manipulation and there's no cracking and popping and pain. It's just very gentle but very effective, so why someone wouldn't want help in resolving pain issues? Cause if there's pain, there's something wrong, definitely. And it'll only get worse. It's not gonna go away!

My normal PT experience has been they have you stand up, they poke around on you and then they give you some exercises or hand you off to an assistant and the assistant does exercises with you. So it feels a little impersonal and unproductive. Here I feel like I'm getting a hands-on personal experience, a different experience than normal PT.
