Are you frustrated or worried about neck and shoulder pain?
Do you have trouble looking behind you when you are backing up the car?
Or typing on your computer at work?
Or pain when you are using your smart phone?
Perhaps difficulty playing sports?
Or carrying things around the house?
Sick of wondering if you will ever be able to keep active and mobile so you can…start enjoying your life again?!
It’s easy to think it may not be that big of a deal and will go away on its own.
Or, maybe you think that its normal for someone your age to have neck or shoulder pain as you just “slept funny” or its just a “tweak” that you think is very common.
You can’t recall a specific time or reason why it should have happened – it just doesn’t seem to be getting any better!
If that’s happening to you, you’re not alone – we hear this type of thing all the time.
In fact, neck or shoulder pain is A VERY COMMON problem that we see in our physiotherapy clinic in Montreal.
When it comes to your neck or shoulder pain, I’m sure you want to know:
In fact, the majority of our clients believe that when they get neck or shoulder pain it will go away on its own.
You hope you will get up one morning and feel like nothing ever happened in the first place. We know it’s annoying… But usually this isn’t what happens.
A few months later you are still suffering from neck or shoulder pain… Usually even worse than when it first started!
If so, we want you to know…
We understand that in many cases folks who visit our Physio Clinic have already been to the doctor and been told to “take a few pills” or “just rest” – then went for a follow-up visit, only to be given MORE rest and stronger medication or a possible referral for an injection or more tests. They often leave feeling more worried and confused as they were originally told that “things should be ok”.
The problem is that this is rarely the best advice. It’s super easy to just “take a few pills” to get through the day – but that’s undermining your long-term health and doing nothing to address the reason why you can’t keep active and mobile without pain in the first place!
This craziness explains why so many people aged 35+ are dealing with neck or shoulder pain longer than they should.
What other reasons is my neck or shoulder pain harder to fix?
It’s because it’s super easy to get confused!
Many people are happy to give you advice…But not all of it is reliable. Perhaps you think that you have a neck problem… However, the real cause of your issue may be your shoulder. Or you may have pain or numbness down your arm that may be coming from your neck?! It’s a confusing area of your body to work out.
Without the help and guidance from a physiotherapist – neck or shoulder pain can be very hard to manage. Its one of the main reasons why our clients just think it’s a normal part of their life and they just need to accept it…Or they don’t make any decision to get help as they are just so confused on what to do.
You simply assumed the pain would disappear on its own – but all that happened was the problem never fully resolved and is even getting worse.
You visited the doctor only to be told to “take a few pills” or “just rest” – then went for a follow-up visit, only to be given MORE rest and stronger medication or a possible referral for an injection or more tests.
You went to the local pharmacy and got some pain cream…Or tried a heating pad, ice pack, or bought a product from Amazon but that didn’t really help you out in the long run.
You searched on YouTube for “The Best Exercises For Neck or Shoulder Pain” only to realise that nothing really changed, or it made it WAY WORSE.
A friend, colleague, or family member said: “it’s common to get neck or shoulder pain as you get older” – so you accepted that it’s “just part of my life now”.
You struggled because the pain was so bad you thought the best idea would be to simply take it really easy… But things became even more stiff and tight and now you are even more worried.
You have seen another Healthcare Professional, or a Physio already, but you didn’t see any real improvement and don’t want to make the same mistake again.
Thought all you needed was “a few massages” to ease the pain and discomfort, and although it was great and relaxing, it only gave you short term relief without any clear understanding of the real problem or a longer-term fix.
You decided to put it off as finances were tight, it was a busy time at work, and you thought it was probably not a big deal anyway – only to realise now that you made a HUGE MISTAKE by not taking care of it earlier as you are now still in pain, concerned about what to do, and its really derailed your life.

Well…Here are a few tips:
Moment of truth here: YOU need to decide to take proper action. Many people we talk to are excellent procrastinators…They bury their head in the sand thinking their foot pain will go away if they ignore it… But months later the problem is still there and deep down they are not happy about it… Most often their foot pain is even worse and they are now even more scared as the swelling isn’t improving and they don’t know what to do. Don’t make this mistake…Get the proper help. The true cost of not fixing your problem right away is always WAY MORE than doing a few weeks of focused treatment with a qualified expert Physio.
Avoid awkward positions and bad posture. Have you ever finished a long day with shoulder stiffness? Or woken up in the morning with a sore neck? This happens because sitting with bad posture or poor support can cause all sorts of problems in the neck and shoulders. Also, sleeping in funny positions can cause issues over time that can lead to pain. These bad habits can wear down our body so it’s even harder to get over neck or shoulder pain issues. Most of our clients see quick improvement when they are given the right strengthening exercises, in addition to hands-on treatment, so they can keep active, mobile and healthy as fast as possible.
Seek out effective, “hands-on” Physiotherapy. Physio is a proven way to deal with neck or shoulder pain. At Physicentrix these issues are very common. If your neck or shoulder pain is affecting your work, your ability to keep active and mobile, if it jeopardizes your sports activities or spending quality time with your family and friends – you deserve better! We can help you get back to all the things you enjoy doing by putting an end to irritating, daily neck and shoulder pain that’s making you restless all day long.
