Do you suffer from frequent neck aches, headaches and stress? Most people equate stress with high blood pressure, a heart attack or a stroke.

People literally live on Tylenol and Ibuprofen for years because they constantly

have a nagging headache, induced by muscle spasms from the high amount of stress in their life. A concern with those who have frequent headaches, is a higher risk of depression and anxiety. Consult with an Elite Physical Therapist today, and find out the cause of your headaches to see if our special treatment techniques can help you.

Headaches can range from minor nagging pains, to full-blown migraines that knock you off your feet for a day or two. Any headache, whether tremendous pain or not, should be a warning sign you are under a lot of stress. Prolonged stress can result in muscle tension changes, making you feel stiff, achy and painful in the neck or shoulders. One may feel pain in the shoulders, neck, upper back and even radiating out to the upper arms. Most people who are under a great deal of stress complain about having neck and shoulder pain. The most intense pain usually lies directly in the back and upper sides of the neck. The pain then radiates into the shoulder area. This is why most people who are stressed treat themselves to frequent neck and shoulder massages.

“Dry needling was a major turning point in my recovery!” “Well, where does one even start?! After my second knee surgery with a few doctors I was also looking for a new Physical Therapist. On my first visit I was very pleased with the care I was given at Elite Physical Therapy. I am very thankful and happy for my Elite Physical Therapist that kept on pushing me to get better. I remember when I could barely walk and had a heavy limp to today where I am able to run, jump, squat and do my favorite one legged leg press. Overall, I am very happy with my progress and the care in which I received here at Elite Physical Therapy. Also, planking – wow. Never in a million years would I try this but the exercises again showed me that My Elite Physical Therapist was there to help me, push me and overall get me back to a point in my life which is active and healthy. After also receiving Dry Needling, I feel that was also a major turning point in my recovery. Thank you Elite!” -S.B.
