      A Personal Message from Neck & Shoulder Physical Therapist, Kim Gladfelter

      Hello and Welcome...

      • Are you worried about neck and shoulder pain that isn’t going away on its own, no matter how much 'rest' you've been told to get?
      • Do you ‘store your stress’ in your shoulders to the point where it causes constant pain and tightness?
      • Does it concern you that you’re losing sleep because of your shoulder pain because you can’t find a comfortable position?
      • Are you frustrated that physical therapy, chiropractic, or acupuncture, hasn’t worked, and your pain seems to be getting worse?
      • Have you been diagnosed with a 'rotator cuff' injury and are having trouble exercising because of sharp pain?
      • Does it concern you that injections haven’t worked and you might be facing a dangerous surgery?

      If that's happening to you, you're not alone. We hear this type of thing all the time! In fact, Neck and Shoulder Pain is one of the most common problems that we see in our physical therapy clinic in Los Altos, CA.

      And when it comes to living with Neck and Shoulder Pain, everybody we see wants to know the answers to these simple questions...

      Why Is This Happening To Me?
      "Why Am I Still Suffering With Neck/Shoulder Pain After Putting Up With It For 6 Months (Or Maybe More)?"

      Most people think that when you get Neck and Shoulder Pain, it's just going to go away on its own.

      That you'll wake up one morning and like "magic", it'll be as if Neck and Shoulder Pain never happened. But then 6 months later, you're still living with Neck and Shoulder Pain - often even worse than it was when it started.

      Does This Sound Like You?

      Another scenario we see all the time in our physical therapy clinic is when people are told to rest, ”try medications”, or told they need to "get an MRI.”

      But this is rarely ever the best advice and often 6 weeks later, their Neck and Shoulder Pain hasn't gotten any better. They may have been told of some scary findings (which may in return actually be NORMAL findings).

      Worse, they're often given yet another prescription of even stronger pills, and advised MORE rest or an injection as their only options. This explains why so many people are continuing to suffer from chronic Neck and Shoulder Pain.

      Has This Ever Happened To You?

      Maybe you are confused because you’ve been told different things, by different people. Perhaps you think you have a neck problem - but did you know that it could very well be your shoulder where the problem is? I know… that can be a challenging way of connecting the body and it can be quite confusing.  But that is how the body works.

      It can very confusing to know exactly what to do first when you have so many options.  And when faced with uncertainty of what will work, you will do what most people do… Which is do nothing!  And that’s just to avoid making your neck and shoulder pain worse!

      And because of this confusion, people tend to procrastinate and put off making a decision about what to do to help fix their neck and shoulder pain. This happens because they fear making the wrong decision (perhaps again).  And what is even worse is that many people just end up just accepting it as “part of life”.  It is not normal and does not have to be that way.

      Is This How You Feel Too?

      If You're Currently Living With Neck/Shoulder Pain, Here's 7 More Reasons Why It Could
      Be Lasting Longer Than It Should:

      • You are in pain because of your "age" and you need to "accept it"
      • You were told to take pain pills (which we know are addicting and dangerous). All you did was "mask' the pain" - and as soon as they wore off neck and shoulder pain stopped you in your tracks again
      • You were told that everybody gets neck and shoulder pain as they get older, so you just accepted it
      • You have sought help from other healthcare professionals or a physical therapist in the past, but nothing they said or did seemed to help
      • You’ve tried using things at home like heating pads, and maybe other practitioners have used ultrasound or TENS but they’ve done nothing to help make the pain better.
      • You thought it would be a good idea to rest because your neck or shoulder pain was so bad, but it still irritates you daily.
      • You decided to get a few “massages” or acupuncture 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…

      "What Can I Do To Get Rid Of My Neck/Shoulder
      Pain Quickly?"

      • First, you need to make a decision about getting help. So many people procrastinate for so long, thinking that the pain will "just go away with time", but then 6 to 8 months down the line you’re still putting up with it, and nothing’s changed… Or it gets worse.
      • Next, do the RIGHT exercises. One of the best things to help you ease your neck and/or shoulder pain is to do the right series of progressed exercises - the right exercises given to you by a Physical Therapist will help reduce pain, and allow you to move freely again quick - and make sure that the problems don’t come back any time soon.
      • Avoid sitting and sleeping in awkward positions and being aware of your posture. Have you ever woken up with a painful neck? Or, after a long day spent sitting felt tightness in your shoulders? That’s because one of the worst things you can do that adds to neck and/or shoulder pain is sitting with bad posture and sleeping in awkward positions. It would really help if you were given appropriate strengthening exercises for better posture, alongside hands-on treatments, so you can get active and healthy as quickly as possible.
      • Get real, “hands-on” Physical Therapy. PT is proven to help people with neck and shoulder pain. In fact at PhysioFit it’s one of the most common issues we see. If your neck and/or shoulder pain is affecting your job, if your sleep is disturbed by tightness or tension in your shoulder, if it stops you from keeping active, or if it threatens your independence and 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.

      “Hear From PhysioFit Clients Who Are Feeling More ACTIVE,
      And HAPPY…In Just A Few Short Weeks”!

      "I had shoulder rotator cuff repair surgery and started physical therapy as soon as my surgeon cleared me. Prior excellent experience with PhysioFit therapists. Made it a no-brainer to return. Very painful, extremely limited mobility and no strength after surgery. Arm barely functional. I felt a sense that I was taking positive action to speed healing. I couldn't wait to be allowed to start therapy. Before I came to PhysioFit I understood that PT sped recover, relieved pain, sped up increased mobility and strength. I would tell anyone procrastinating about going in for Physical Therapy to convince your MD to write an RX. PT works for both acute and chronic physical problems. I liked the sense that I was taking assertive action; also like PhysioFit's supper staff. Talk to your MD and friends. DO NOT commit to a cause of physical therapy until you are prepared to work with your therapist. PT is a two-way street. Both of you must work. I was able to achieve a more rapid return to near normalcy for my shoulder. Also, rapid return to the gym and to golf. I'm a "gym rat" and love to exercise."

      "I had trigeminal neuralgia, which made most of the right side of my teeth hurt making it feel like I needed a root canal but there were no dental issues, which was scary. I was also nursing and didn’t want to treat with meds. I worked with Keya and Steph who are both amazing to reduce the tension in my back and neck. They provided exercises which helped to increase my strength and range of motion. The trigeminal neuralgia pain lessened over time and eventually went away. I also worked with PhysioFit while I was nursing and got clogged Milk Ducts as with my 1st pregnancy I got Mastitis and didn’t want to have to go on meds with my second child. My lactation consultant, Joanna Koch at PAMF told me about the block milk technique at PhysioFit and I never ended up with Mastitis again."
