WELCOME OUR NEWEST TEAM MEMBER ASHLEE ROUSSEY, PT, DPT NEWSL E T T ER Physical Therapy Services Inc.
Dr. Roussey recently officially moved to Portland, Indiana to join our team after earning her Doctoral Degree in Physical Therapy from Trine University. She completed most of her clinical rotations locally with Parkview Hospital, Parkview Randallia Hospital and Parkview Regional Medical Center. Dr. Roussey is excited to share her knowledge and expertise with her patients. She enjoys working with people on all levels of activity, from the very young to the mature. Her diverse background in sports gives her a unique clinical perspective, as she was both a dancer and played volleyball. She really enjoys the challenge of preparing athletes to return to their sport; however, if you ask her what inspired her to pursue a career in physical therapy, the conversation becomes very personal for her. Dr. Roussey’s father suffers from the debilitating disease, multiple sclerosis. Having been involved in his care and rehabilitation from a young age, has made a profound and lasting impression on her. According to Dr. Roussey, “My father continues to be a great influence in my life. It was only natural for me to follow my passion for helping others as I have seen first-hand the positive impact physical therapy has had in my father’s life.” Dr. Roussey is current ly taking appointments and will continue to work under the direct supervision of Roy Adams for the next several months.

SAY GOODBYE TO THE PAINS IN YOUR NECK WITH PHYSICAL THERAPY
INSIDE: • Relieve Your Neck Pain With FYZICAL • Patient Success Spotlight • Have You Met Your Insurance Deductible?
Do you have trouble sitting up straight at your desk, tilting your head down to tie your shoes, or even lying down to go to sleep at night? Do you have headaches more than once a week? If so, you’re not alone. According to the Institute of Medicine of The National Academies, over 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. Of those 100 million, 15% suffer from chronic neck pain. In a survey conducted with over 300 chronic pain sufferers, 59% reported an impact on the quality of their life and 77% of those surveyed reported feeling depressed. Even small amounts of pain can lead to a downward spiral in quality of life, energy, and overall wellbeing. Fortunately physical therapy can help resolve all the pains in your neck. Contact FYZICAL today to schedule your consultation. Why does neck pain occur? The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) states that approximately one-third of the population will experience neck pain in any given year. It can get worse if left untreated, and in severe cases, surgery may even be needed. Additional symptoms of neck pain may include: • Discomfort and pain when remaining in the same position for too long.
• Muscle stiffness and tightness in the upper body. • Headaches. • Arm weakness. • Numbness or tingling. • Inability to fully stand up or sit up straight. • Loss of sleep due to pain and discomfort.
The neck is an integral area of everyday movement, and sharp pains can prevent you from functioning properly in your day-to-day life. The neck is comprised of 7 vertebrae (bones), over 16 joints, and numerous muscles and tissues. The greatest concentration of muscles and tissues is in the upper neck, at the base of your skull. This area consists of the larger muscles that attach your head to your neck, and it is where the vertebral and carotid arteries travel through your neck, in order to reach the skull. When these muscles become tense, the blood flow from the arteries can become affected, resulting in neck pain and headaches. Your neck relies on a lot from your body – such as proper posture, flexibility, strength, and coordination. In our daily lives, we place tremendous strain and demand on our neck. Stress and poor posture can cause muscle weakness in the neck, and can even lead to long-term damage over time. Any sort of chronic strain on the neck can result in inflammation and contribute to our pain and headaches. adamsptservices.com
RELIEVE YOUR NECK PAIN WITH FYZICAL
Our physical therapists are movement experts, equipped in identifying and treating the main source of your neck pain. They will analyze your posture, movement, and problem areas, in order to determine the best course of treatment for your needs. Your treatment plan will focus on relieving your pain, in addition to improving your posture, mobility, strength, and coordination. Your diagnosis will determine the make-up of your treatment plan, and may include any combination of manual therapy, targeted stretches and exercises, activity modification, or ergonomic recommendations. It may also include additional methods as deemed fit by your physical therapist, such as ice and heat therapies, ultrasound, or electrical stimulation. Physical therapy can help significantly reduce your neck pain by implementing the following benefits: • Maintaining proper posture when sitting and standing. • Restoring flexibility to your neck muscles and joints. • Strengthening your mid-back muscles and shoulders to provide support to your neck. • Improving the coordination of your neck muscles. • Educating patients on eating well, by reducing the consumption of processed foods that increases inflammation in the body. You will work together with your physical therapist to understand the goals and expectations of each step in your personalized treatment plan, with the main focus being on overcoming your neck pain and recovering as quickly as possible. If your neck pain has been limiting your daily life, don’t wait any longer to seek help. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
