The new and updated shoulder program (exclusively at Horizon Physical Therapy) includes a thorough examination of the most common causes of shoulder pain:

-Shoulder Blade
-Neck and Upper Back

After we find the cause of your shoulder pain, you will receive the latest hand-on physical therapy combined with the right stretching and strengthening exercises specific to the cause of your shoulder pain. This treatment has been proven to:

-Give permanent relief by correcting the cause of your pain
-Improve your strength and movement
-Speed up the healing process

During the hot summer months and while exercising, proper hydration is essential to good health. Water helps to maintain critical body functions like body temperature and getting rid of toxins. Many times we don't know that we are in a state of dehydration until we feel thirsty, fatigue, or headaches. This is why it is important to drink water throughout that day even before you feel thirsty.

BMJ Open Sport Exerc Med. 2017 Jun 22;3(1):e000265. doi: 10.1136/bmjsem-2017-000265. eCollection 2017.


How Sleep Quality Affects Neck Pain
A 2015 study examined 422 patients with sub-acute or chronic neck pain and found that symptoms were less likely to resolve if the individual also experienced poor sleep 🛌 quality. There is still much research to be done in this area, but it appears that sleep quality often has an intimate relationship with persistent pain problems. If you struggle with persistent pain and have difficulty sleeping, it may be worth your time to explore options that could improve sleep quality.
🔬OBJECTIVE: To assess whether sleep quality (SQ) at baseline is associated with improvement in pain and disability at 3 months.
🔬MATERIALS AND METHODS: Four hundred twenty-two subacute and chronic patients with neck pain (NP) were recruited in 32 physiotherapy, primary care, and specialized centers. NP, referred pain, disability, catastrophizing, depression, and SQ were assessed through validated questionnaires, upon recruitment and 3 months later.
🔬DISCUSSION: NP is less likely to improve in patients with poorer SQ, irrespective of age, sex, catastrophizing, depression, or treatments prescribed for NP. Future studies should confirm these results with more severely impaired patients.
