Everyone, meet Cathy. Cathy came to see us for neck pain. She was having problems turning her neck due to stiffness and pain. She is an extremely active person who works with her trainer every week. After manual therapy to improve range of motion and increase tissue extensibility, exercises, stretches, dry needling, and postural training, Cathy is moving so much better! She is able to work out with her trainer without limitations. She worked super hard to get there! Way to go Cathy! Thank you for trusting us to help you. - Mallory, PTA
