Think about what your neck feels like right now....

Do you feel the same "knots" as the lady in this picture?

It’s always seems to be the SAME muscles, with the SAME annoying knots, isn’t it?

This image shows the trigger point referral pattern that can lead to myofascial pain and syndromes such as headaches, tension and muscle strain

Our Experienced Team

Can Treat a Wide Variety of Neck Pain Conditions

Chronic Muscle Pain ("Knots")

Poor posture from sleeping on our side, holding our baby or working at a computer can cause hours of strain on our neck and shoulders each day. Our therapists can help you strengthen and balance your muscles so “knots” GO AWAY and STAY AWAY


Chronic muscle tension in our neck muscles can refer pain behind our eyes, on our forehead and around our temples. Our therapists can help eliminate chronic tension and get you lasting headache relief.

Herniated Discs (Bulging Discs)

Trauma and degeneration can cause cracks within the weakened areas of the spinal discs. As this happens, the jelly-like material of the center of the disc will leak out and irritate the surrounding areas. Pinching, numbness, and pressure can occur as the disc balloons out and pinches the nearby nerves.

Pulled Muscles and Strains

Trauma or “moving the wrong way” can flare up painful muscle spasms in your neck. The pain can be debilitating, affecting every aspect of your life. We can help relieve the spasms and fix the underlying cause of your pain.

Frequently Asked Questions

Depending on your insurance, the average cost you can expect to pay for a physical therapy visit is between $0 – $90 for an hour long session.

Each visit is an action packed experience with your therapist. There is combination of hands soft tissue massage, assisted stretching and guided exercises by an experienced therapist.

The quality of the providers we have on staff is second to none. When you come into a Modern facility, you will get a dedicated and engaged therapist that is committed to getting you the results you need. 

Building strong muscles in your neck and back are key to improving your posture and keeping your muscles relaxed long term. If you are experiencing very mild discomfort in your neck and shoulders, then exercising your traps, rhomboids and posterior neck muscles will most likely do the trick.

If you haven’t worked these muscles out in a while, then you most likely have a significant imbalance in your muscles. A physical therapist can help you achieve results by 

  1. Identifying which muscles are short and tight and which ones are stretched and weak
  2. Coach you through the proper exercises needed to get you back to balance (rather than reinforcing the imbalance you have)
  3. Perform soft tissue therapy and stretches to the muscles before exercise so you don’t injure yourself
  4. Progress you through exercises that get more challenging over time 
  5. After you achieve balance in your muscles, our PTs can coach you how to maintain your results in the gym or at your home

Damaged spinal discs can balloon out and cause pinching to the nearby nerves. Because your discs are flexible, if you can get the spinal bones in the right 3D alignment, and do the right movement, you can create the right force to “guide” the disc back into the proper position.

This requires A TON training and experience from a therapist to understand how to do this complex rehabilitation.
