How Common Are Shoulder Pain, Neck Pain, or Headaches?
If you have shoulder pain, neck pain, or recurrent headaches that have recently developed or is a recurrent issue, it's easy to get discouraged. Headaches, shoulder pain, and neck pain can threaten independence, make you feel like you're dependent on pills, and impede you living the life you want to live. They can make it hard to concentrate, do your workout routine, or simply lift the groceries up into the shelf overhead.
You're not alone. In fact, these are some of the most common problems we encounter in our clinical practice. Most people come to see us for physical therapy because they want to be in the driver’s seat of their body and their health.
Is my pain normal?
Shoulder pain, neck pain, and headaches are common, but they are not normal. The reason they are so common is because most healthcare practitioners don’t understand the root cause behind these issues and instead prescribe quick fixes like pills, injections, and surgeries to solve the root-cause issues.
You have everything you need written into your genetic code to be healthy, pain free, and do all the things you want to do in life. You simply need the right environment to make it happen.
Does this sound like you?
If you dig deeper, your shoulder pain, neck pain, or headache may be interfering with your sense of independence, ability to be present and play the role in your grandkids life you want to play, or to be able to lose weight so you can build confidence and feel healthy and vibrant.
It can leave you wondering what life will be like 10 years from now if the pain continues to progress and affect your life. Will you be able to be the grandparent who is fun and makes memories with your grandkids? Will you be able to go on a hike with your friends in the mountains? Will you be able to enjoy traveling with your spouse?
Is this your story?
You’ve probably been to your primary care doc and been told you have arthritis, a rotator cuff tear, migraines, degenerative discs, or that you’re simply getting older.
We’re all for diagnosing the patients we see to help them understand what’s going on. But, giving someone a diagnosis without telling them what to do to get rid of it isn’t helpful.
Most medical professionals want to give you pills, injections, or surgery. But isn’t this just masking the problem? Instead of thinking critically and guiding people as they make habitual changes to their lives so they can live pain free, we are crippling them by giving them quick fixes.
Spinal surgeries have increased by 200% in the past 20 years, yet there are still just as many people suffering from shoulder pain, neck pain, and headaches.
Sadly, it’s likely the increase in spinal surgeries is driven by insurance reimbursements being high for these procedures rather than their effectiveness.
"Why am I still suffering with this pain after
weeks, months, or even years?"
We understand you want to be informed before booking a PT appointment or health decision. If you want to know about cost, availability, or if we are a good fit for you, complete an Inquiry Form.
Stop the madness!
The crazy things is research shows physical therapy, exercise and understanding your pain and problem is just as effective as surgery without the side effects.
Instead of masking the problem, the medical profession needs to put a heavy emphasis on empowering patients to do everything in their power to live pain free, healthy, and active lives.
Your pain is telling you something
Pain is important. Pain tells us there is something wrong in our body. It’s like an alarm system which goes off when there is a potential intruder. Instead of covering your smoke alarm when it’s going off (masking the pain with pills) you’ll likely go and find the source of the fire and put it out. Better yet, you’ll figure out how to put up safeguards in your home to prevent the fire from starting again.
If you want to live pain free, to turn off your alarm system, and do the things you want to do in life, it’s your job to take control of your health care and your life. You are not at the mercy of the side-effect laden pills, injections, and surgeries which only offer short term relief.
There is hope
But here’s the good news. There is hope for anyone suffering from neck pain, shoulder pain, or headaches. Even if you’ve had the pain for year (or decades) the solution to your pain may be even simpler than you think.
If you're currently suffering from shoulder pain, neck pain or headaches, here are 6 stories we hear from patients.
