Shoulder/Neck Pain

Should Pain PT in California

A Message From Kirsten Brown, DPT, Owner and Founder of Day By Day Wellness

When it comes to dealing with neck and shoulder pain, most individuals we encounter share common questions and concerns:

"Why Is This Happening To Me?" or "Why Am I Still Experiencing Neck And Shoulder Pain After Enduring It For Half A Year, Sometimes Even Longer?"

Many tend to believe that when they experience this type of pain, it will naturally subside over time. They envision waking up one day, and as if by some sort of magic, the discomfort will have vanished. However, six months later, they find themselves still grappling with persistent pain, often worse than its initial onset.

Does This Resonate With Your Experience?

Another frequent scenario we witness at our physical therapy clinic involves individuals seeking advice from doctors. They’re advised to rest and are given painkillers with the hope that the situation will improve. However, after six weeks, they return to the same doctor, as there has been no notable improvement, only to be provided with a fresh prescription for even stronger medication.

Has This Ever Occurred In Your Case?

Perhaps you find yourself in a state of confusion, having received conflicting advice from various sources. It’s possible that you believe the issue lies in your neck, but it may actually be originating from your shoulder. Identifying the exact source of the problem in this area of the body can be perplexing, often causing individuals to delay in making a decision regarding how to address their neck and shoulder pain. Unfortunately, many end up resigning themselves to the belief that it’s a normal part of life, something they simply have to endure.

Do You Recognize These Situations?

If You're Currently Dealing With Neck And/Or Shoulder Discomfort, Here Are 7 Additional Explanations Why It Might Be Lingering Longer Than Expected:

  1. You anticipated it would resolve on its own, but it persisted.
  2. You visited a doctor who recommended rest and painkillers, but the medication provided no relief. As soon as its effects wore off, the neck and shoulder pain returned.
  3. A family member or friend mentioned that experiencing neck and shoulder pain is a common part of aging, so you simply came to accept it.
  4. You sought assistance from other healthcare professionals or a physical therapist in the past, but their advice or treatments didn’t seem to make a difference.
  5. You attempted remedies like heating pads or TENS machines, but they proved ineffective in alleviating the pain.
  6. Due to the severity of your neck or shoulder pain, you thought resting would be beneficial, yet the discomfort continues to bother you daily.
  7. You opted for a few “massages” in hopes of resolving the pain, but while they provided temporary relaxation, they didn’t offer a long-term solution.

If any of these scenarios resonate with you, we’re eager to assist you. We invite you to schedule a call with one of our physical therapists to explore potential solutions. The fact that you’ve tried these methods means we’ve established what doesn’t work, bringing us closer to uncovering what does. Click the link below to arrange a call for valuable advice:

People Often Inquire About What Can Be Done To Alleviate Neck And Shoulder Pain.

Here are four steps you can take:
  1. Firstly, it’s crucial to commit to seeking assistance. Many individuals delay, assuming that the pain will naturally subside over time. However, after six months, they find themselves still enduring it, with no improvement, and sometimes it even worsens.
  2. Following that, engage in the appropriate exercises. One of the most effective ways to alleviate neck and/or shoulder pain is to perform a tailored set of progressive exercises. These exercises, provided by a Physical Therapist, can help diminish pain, restore mobility swiftly, and ensure that issues don’t recur in the near future.
  3. Avoid adopting uncomfortable sitting and sleeping positions. Have you ever woken up with a sore neck? Or did you feel tightness in your shoulders after a prolonged period of sitting? This discomfort often arises from poor posture while sitting and sleeping in awkward positions. Engaging in strengthening exercises for better posture, coupled with hands-on treatment, can help you become more active and healthier in a shorter span of time.
  4. Seek hands-on Physical Therapy from a qualified professional. Physical Therapy has been demonstrated to be highly effective for individuals dealing with neck and shoulder pain. At Day By Day Wellness, it’s one of the most commonly treated issues. If your pain is impacting your work, disrupting your sleep, hindering your ability to stay active, or impeding your independence and quality time with loved ones, Physiotherapy can assist you in swiftly returning to the life you deserve.
