Understanding Neck & Shoulder Pain
Neck pain and shoulder pain are common in today's world. We rely on our necks and shoulders to do many repetitive tasks throughout the day; whether it's turning our necks constantly while driving, or hunched over our keyboards, or worst yet, hunched over our cell phones.
Regular exercise is one of the most effective, evidence-based ways to alleviate pain in your neck and/or shoulder. But when your neck pain becomes too great, or your shoulder pain becomes too much, you might not be able to exercise at all—which can lead to increased sedentary activity and even more pain and dysfunction.
Our team at PhysioFit Physical Therapy & Wellness can help you get out of this vicious cycle and find effective relief. Call us to schedule an appointment with a physical therapist and get started on your personalized neck and shoulder pain treatment plan.

"I had been to Physiofit several years ago for a knee issue. I was very happy then and returned again when I needed PT for neck problems. I have had 3-4 different therapists and have been pleased with everyone. My therapist is very knowledgeable and focused on my progress, introducing various exercises and massage techniques to help my improvement. The front staff is always friendly and professional, acknowledging everyone immediately when they arrive. They also aid the PTs in a very caring and experienced manner. Physiofit is warm, welcoming, and professional at all times. I am grateful for their care."

I've been going to PhysioFit physical therapy for help with back and neck/shoulder issues for more than a year now. The physical therapists there are amazing (I've seen two of them) and I've also been working with two of the Pilates instructors there. As a team they have been amazing. I am much improved and am able to continue with normal daily activities and have been building strength.
