An Amazing Patient Success Story
"Nearly 4 years ago I had a severe cervical spine injury resulting in 2 surgeries that left me in constant agony, unable to walk unassisted, bathe myself, cut my own food, or get up the stairs alone. And forget about driving! I’d given up. But Mike, Matt, Tyler and the entire crew at Dresher PT NEVER gave up on me. They cheered me on, gently and consistently challenged me, and exceeded the expectations of the surgeons who felt I was bound for a life of significant disability. I can do almost everything I had been able to prior to the injury AND I am healthier, more positive and even have improved posture. ALL thanks to Dresher PT!"

Attention Neck Pain, Stiff Neck and Headache Sufferers
NEW 30-second Self Test for Neck Pain
Reveals if Physical Therapy Can Help You
  • Do you wake up with a “kink” in your neck more often than you’d like?
  • Do you have trouble turning your head side-to-side while driving to look for traffic?
  • Do you experience headaches that start at the base of your neck or back of your skull?

At Dresher Physical Therapy, we see many clients who suffer from neck pain, loss of neck motion and headaches. In fact, it’s probably the 3rd most common problem we treat. When clients come in suffering with neck pain, they usually ask 3 questions: What is it? Why do I have this? and How do I get rid of it?

The 30 Second Self-Test is the first test that our team of Neck Pain Specialists do when we see someone with neck pain and stiffness. Try it now . . .

The 30 Second Self-Test
  1. Look up
  2. Look down
  3. Right ear to right shoulder
  4. Left ear to left shoulder
  5. Turn head to the right
  6. Turn head to the left

Do these six moves. Go as far as you can, in a safe manner. A person with a normal neck should be able to do these moves without any problem. If you have pain or tightness, our physical therapists specialize in helping people move better. Here’s what it means:

  1. If you have NO pain, tightness, or discomfort with any of the 6 movements-your neck is in good shape…mechanically. You may have another cause of your neck pain (commonly it’s in the middle of your back between your shoulder blades.) It is gets too bad, we can help with that.
  2. You HAVE pain and tightness looking up-this is frequently caused by arthritis. Here at Dresher PT we have a specific treatment program for this that will be customized to your specific needs.
  3. If you have MORE trouble turning your head to the right or to the left (as compared to the other side), we have a specific treatment program for that, too.
If you fit into one of these 3 categories and would like to get rid of your pain, we are offering a FREE NECK SCREENING with one of our PT's who specialize in neck pain. The purpose of this screening is to determine the cause of your neck problem and to be sure that physical therapy can help you.

Call TODAY to schedule your Free Screening! We are limiting this offer to the first 10 people who call each clinic as our schedules book up quickly in the Fall. Don't delay - call today! Offer Expires Nov 15th.
