Joan: Neck Pain
When Joan, age 42, came to ProActive, she had been suffering for three weeks with consistent neck pain that was radiating to her right shoulder blade. However, she had not suffered any trauma that might have caused the pain. Her pain rating was a 6 out of 10, and she was struggling to bend and rotate towards her right side. Joan was also suffering daily headaches as a result of the pain.
How We Helped: After examination by a ProActive therapist, Joan was prescribed manual physical therapy and exercise to be completed in 6 total visits over the course of 3 weeks.
Where They Are Now: Upon completion of her treatment, Joan’s neck and shoulder pain has resolved completely and she is back to full range-of-motion. Her headaches are milder and less frequent and can be managed with stretching.
