“I am most grateful to Michella and the entire staff at Partners.” “Before treatment at Partners in Physical Therapy I could not comfortably sit to watch a movie and sleeping was uncomfortable. I had dull, aching pain in my hip and low back. Additionally, there was significant imbalance from side to side in my yoga practice. Now, I can comfortably watch a movie while sitting, am pain free, and the imbalance from side to side is negligible. I am most grateful to Michella and the entire staff at Partners. I think I have worked with just about everyone and they have all contributed to my success.” - A.T.

Relieves Neck Pain
SOFT TISSUE RELEASE Take a sock (or towel) and a tennis ball to perform this exercise. Place the tennis ball in the sock. Drape the sock over your shoulder so the tennis ball is against your upper back in a place where you have a tight muscle or localized pain. Now, lean against the wall so the ball presses directly on the affected area. Apply as much pressure as you can tolerate and so you can breathe comfortably. Hold it against that spot for 30 seconds to 2 minutes, or until the pain dissipates. You can roll your back up and down and side to side against the wall to create a self massage effect.
If this exercise does not provide you relief/help, please consider an evaluation to see if we can identify the source of your pain.
