If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you are in the right place!
You see, many people with back pain in Louisville suffer unnecessarily with neck and shoulder pain because they’re told…
⚠ Just “rest it” and it’ll be fine (then months later they’re still suffering…)
⚠ It’s “normal” with women and men my age to suffer with neck and shoulder pain
⚠ If you take some pills everything will be fine.
⚠ Shoulder or neck surgery is the only option.
The truth is:
✅ Resting it doesn’t change anything. You might get a small temporary relief, but then when you get active again you’ll still be suffering from neck pain and shoulder issues (I bet you’ve already experienced it!)
✅ It’s not normal to get neck or shoulder pain as you get older!
✅ Pain pills are addicting, dangerous, and can cause a lot of other problems with your body.
✅ Neck or shoulder surgery is not the only option. It’s just the only option your surgeon can offer you.
At Focus Physical Therapy, We Help Active Adults Get Back to Working Out and Enjoying an Active Lifestyle Without Surgery and Costly Procedures!
It can be very confusing to decide exactly exactly what you should do if you have neck and shoulder pain. You’ve likely heard a lot of options such as…
❓ A family member tells you that it's normal and "just happens" when you get older
❓ A colleague mentions going to a chiropractor
❓ The “experts” on YouTube recommend doing a certain exercise
❓ A friend suggests going to a new type of exercise class
❓ All while the doctor tells you to guzzle pain pills
At Focus Physical Therapy, we’ve created a 5 step process to get rid of your pain AND make sure it doesn’t come back again.
Most physical therapy clinics are not attentive, they’re fast paced, and your therapist doesn’t have time to actually touch where you hurt.
This is why our first step is to listen to you story.
After working with countless people with neck and shoulder pain, we know that no two people are alike. Each person has a different body, a different history, and different types of pain. That is why our first step is to have an open conversation and time for you to tell your story. That way we get a deep understanding of what’s going on not just with your body, but also how it’s impacting your life.
We Find Out WHY Your Neck or Shoulder Pain Started
The next step comes in the form of a Discovery Visit.
We understand the unease we all inevitably feel when committing to something new or unfamiliar. We want our clients to be comfortable with their decision to receive Focus care! During these Discovery Visits, we sit down with you, one-on-one, listen to your story, examine you, answer any questions you have, and we let you know what's going on and what can be done to alleviate it.
If you are still skeptical and unsure if physical therapy is right for you…that’s fine. That is why we created the Discovery Session.Apply For A Free Discovery Session
Customized Program To Help You Ease Pain and Restore Your Mobility
People are usually told to stretch or given a sheet of exercises from doctors for their neck or shoulder pain. But the problem is, moving or stretching irritated muscles can only increase the pain! Without proper guidance, doing the WRONG stretches or exercises can make the situation worse. It is critical that BEFORE you start to stretch or exercise it is important to alleviate pain with movement.
What Is Manual Therapy?
Manual therapy is the method of using highly targeted treatments that will help you RAPIDLY restore mobility, and ease pain with movement BEFORE you do any exercise.
We use different tools that will help you feel better, such as:
-Breaking up scar tissue from previous surgeries or injuries
-Unlocking stiff, achy, and irritated joints
-Releasing tight 'knots' or 'muscle spasms' that create discomfort
Manual Therapy helps to remove "tightness" from areas that are frequently irritated and increase blood circulation into these problem areas. This will speed up pain relief and create a more optimal environment for your body to heal.
Retrain Your Brain-Body Connection
Most people think that once the pain is gone, the body is healed. This is simply not true! Most people don't realize that chronic pain causes your body to develop bad compensation habits.
Examples of these"compensations" might be:
*Using you hands to push on your thighs to stand up after you've bent forward to pick something up from the ground.
*Putting more weight to one side of the body because of increased pain when standing too long.
*Using momentum to stand upright from a bed, or out of a chair, because of achiness or pain.
*Leaning forward too much because it relieves back pain.
Why Does This Happen?
*Because the brain interprets certain movements as harmful when you have pain!
*Most back pain exercises you see on YouTube, or learn from traditional physical therapy, only focuses on building strength or increasing mobility, they do nothing to restore the very critical brain-body connections.
*At Focus Physical Therapy, our exercise program offers much more than a "sheet of strength exercises", or some mobility stretches
We do this by giving you complete one-on-one focused attention in every single movement that applies to your goals.
This Will Allow You To:
*Restore your confidence in performing ALL movements that you were fearful of doing throughout the day
*Return to exercising with PROPER guidance so you don't have to worry about hurting yourself again
*Develop 'Brain-Body Awareness' so you are able to self-correct any improper movement during exercise
Optimize Your Quality Of Life
Our best clients are people who are motivated and committed to becoming active again, even if they sometimes feel stuck in their current situation.
If you are willing to put in some effort and open to learning about your body, and you are ready to get back to the quality of life you deserve, then Focus PT would be a great fit for you.
You can expect:
*A life where you can sit and drive without neck and shoulder pain, or having to pull over every 20 minutes to stretch
*A life where you can bend forward to pick things off the floor, without having to sit down from pain
*Get back to exercising without having to worry about hurting yourself again
*Be able to play with your kids or grand kids, without having to slow down or take pain pills
*Be able to get a restful sleep and wake up with less pain and more energy
*Return to your pre-injury active lifestyle, without having to rely on pills, injections, creams, or surgery
See What People Are Saying About Focus Physical Therapy!
I had such painful plantar fasciitis that I could not walk comfortably at all! Four sessions of dry needling with Dr. Brad and the relief was incredible. He also gave me follow up exercises to prevent future flare ups. Now I'm walking pain free, all thanks to Focus.Amy Focus PT Patient
Run, don't walk, to FPT! Don't wait like I did to get relief. Working with Brad has been wonderful and you will not find a more knowledgeable, professional, and caring person. Before I started at Focus Physical Therapy, I thought my chronic neck and back pain were just something to endure. Since working with Brad, my pain is relieved and my quality of life has been completely transformed into asking what I can do, rather than what I can't.April Focus PT Patients
I am a better parent now that I can get on and off the floor to play with my children.Shannon Z. Focus PT Patient
You are not a number here, you matter.Denese Focus PT Patient
Brad really cares about me and he always follows up to make sure that I feel better. He is caring and kind and I see him quite often. Brad not only treats me, he encourages me, he cares about me, and he does everything he can to fit his treatments to my needs. He always is concerned about my welfare. There's no better physical therapist anywhere then Brad.Jan Focus PT Patient
I sought help from Dr. Conder for a knee issue that was ignored for far too long. Thanks to Dr. Conder, I’m back to living a pain-free, active life.Shannon Focus PT Patient
I went to Dr. Conder with shin splints that occurred the week of the Derby Mini Marathon. In a few days time I was back to normal and running my same pace as before!! I'm so thankful for his help!Rachel Focus PT Patient
One of the main things I truly appreciated from my physical therapist, was the ease and flexibility when it came to booking an appointment. My therapist, Brandon, was just a call or text away. No need to speak with a receptionist or be on hold forever. I feel like he cares for my well-being and makes it possible for me to come in and get worked on with urgency - most times within a couple of days of when I called.Ivan Focus PT Patient
