Neck Pain

Med1Care Therapy Partner’s team of physical therapists specializes in the effective treatment of neck pain (physical therapy for neck). Neck pain is a common issue, often stemming from the neck’s inherent flexibility and its role in supporting the weight of the head. Individuals dealing with neck pain frequently encounter symptoms such as muscle tightness, limitations in head movement, headaches, and muscle spasms.

Causes of Neck Pain Causes

Neck pain is frequently triggered by factors such as improper posture or prolonged periods of maintaining the head in a fixed position, such as during computer work, gardening, or driving. Osteoarthritis also plays a significant role in contributing to neck pain.

Numerous factors can lead to neck pain, ranging from issues within the joint itself, the presence of bone spurs, nerve compression, muscle strain, injuries, to underlying conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, meningitis, or cancer.

Typical sources of neck pain include:

  • Muscle strain arising from extended periods of engaging in solitary tasks, like binge-watching on a small screen
  • Joint problems stemming from deteriorated cartilage that cushions the vertebrae in the neck
  • Injuries, such as whiplash resulting from auto collisions, which strain the soft tissues in the neck
  • Nerve compression caused by bone spurs or herniated discs

While instances of neck pain rarely indicate severe underlying issues, it’s advisable to seek medical attention if the pain is severe, persists for multiple days, or coincides with additional symptoms like headaches, numbness, muscle weakness in the arms or hands, or shooting pain that radiates from the neck to the shoulder or down the arm.

How We Help

If you’re currently grappling with neck pain, our team of skilled physical therapists is here to assist you in enhancing your mobility, alleviating discomfort, and restoring your overall quality of life.

Med1Care Therapy Partner boasts a cadre of experienced therapists adept at addressing neck pain. Your personalized treatment regimen will encompass exercises geared toward promoting proper posture and expanding your range of motion. Additionally, you’ll receive guidance on lifestyle modifications aimed at reducing neck pain, such as optimizing your workstation setup or adopting specific body positions to provide adequate neck support during sleep. We collaborate closely with your physician to forge a path towards your recovery journey.

Arthritis Pain

Med1Care Therapy Partner’s team of physical therapists possesses expertise in addressing various forms of arthritis. Arthritis pain tends to escalate when engaging in physical activity involving the affected area.

Symptoms of arthritis encompass stiffness and physical deformities. In many cases, the cartilage that cushions the bones within the affected joints undergoes deterioration, resulting in painful bone-on-bone friction.

Causes of Arthritis

At present, researchers have identified over 100 different types of arthritis. While the primary cause of arthritis remains uncertain, genetics are known to contribute to its development. Factors such as advanced age, joint injury, and obesity also elevate the risk of experiencing arthritis.

The spectrum of arthritis includes six primary types, which are:

  • Osteoarthritis (OA)
  • Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)
  • Psoriatic arthritis (PsA)
  • Gout
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Lupus

How We Help

Med1Care Therapy Partner boasts specialized physical therapists who excel in stroke treatment. We are dedicated to providing a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach, aiming to enhance skills and maximize independence for individuals recovering from strokes.

Overview of Stroke Care

Commonly referred to as a cerebrovascular accident, a stroke is characterized as an event affecting the brain with rapid-onset clinical signs of focal or global cerebral function disturbance. These symptoms may persist for 24 hours or more, or result in death, with no apparent cause other than of vascular origin. The umbrella of stroke includes cerebral infarction, intracerebral hemorrhage, and subarachnoid hemorrhage, as classified by the World Health Organization. It’s important to note that while often referred to as an “accident,” a stroke is better likened to a “brain attack,” similar to a “heart attack.”

Our specialized team is committed to offering tailored care and support to individuals recovering from strokes, with the aim of aiding in the restoration of function, independence, and quality of life. If you or a loved one is navigating stroke recovery, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 419.866.0555 to schedule a consultation. Our experienced specialists are dedicated to guiding you through the journey towards recovery and enhanced well-being.


  • 85% of strokes result from an interruption of blood flow to a specific brain region.
  • 15% of strokes are attributed to the rupture of a blood vessel.

Time is Crucial:

  • So rapid and appropriate treatment is paramount.

Signs and Symptoms:

  • Drooping of the face

  • Issues with walking, dizziness, loss of balance, or coordination.

  • Timing is crucial. Initiating rehabilitation early yields better outcomes and a higher potential for reducing stroke severity. Our approach to therapy is tailored to your unique needs (therapy will differ in type and intensity).
