It’s not just affecting millennials. Text neck is easily one of the most rapid modern age conditions effecting the general population. The main cause of text neck is the continuous “downward looking” posture. This posture is most common when viewing a phone, tablet, or other handheld device.

One day I was playing volleyball and we were warming up and I got hit HARD! I got hit so hard that my glasses broke and my nose was bleeding for an hour. I then got hit in the head two more times. After my third hit, my head hurt really bad and my neck was very sore. I went to the doctors the very next day and turned out that I had a concussion. Then afterwards I told the doctor that my neck hurt and he sent me to physical therapy.
When I got to physical therapy, I was a little scared at first because I didn’t know what to expect Continue reading Back into the game
I had a fusion in 2013 and now have another herniated disc in my neck. I started seeing Kayla and Jamie at Momentum PT and they began Astym Therapy twice a week. It has helped me go from working and going straight to bed daily to living a full life again. It really helped with my movement and pain in general. I am now pregnant and still thriving thanks to Astym Therapy!

As a student who spends 8-10 hours a day in front of a computer or studying from a textbook, I am all too familiar with neck and upper back pain. I came to TOPS Physical Therapy in search of some exercises and stretches, but I found my greatest relief from the manual therapy and Astym therapy performed by the skilled physical therapy staff.
Not only did Astym therapy decrease the overall tension and soreness in my neck, but I also experienced great relief from the headaches I had been experiencing intermittently for the last 3 years. In addition to the “TOPS” notch treatment I received at TOPS Physical Therapy, I was also educated on the effect neck tightness can have on brain circulation which may also explain the increase in concentration levels post Astym treatment. Thank you TOPS Physical Therapy and Astym therapy for providing me with an awesome experience and a fast return to pain free studying.

I have been dealing with tightness in my L shoulder blade on and off for years. When this pain comes on, I have extreme pain and inability to move my neck. I was skeptical about Astym therapy but only had one treatment and haven’t had any pain for 6 months now. I am a believer of Astym therapy and recommend my family and friends to seek out treatment!

My first visit the astym procedure made a huge difference. My finger stopped going numb and relief was 100% better. Was not fixed at 100%, but made it feel 100% better. Ashli, was been doing a great job, she know exactly where to work on my arm and neck. What a difference astym makes.
