A Personal Message From Specialist Physical Therapist,
Specialist Physical Therapist
When neck and shoulder pain starts, it’s easy to think “oh it’s just an ache and will go away tomorrow”. Or maybe you assume you just moved wrong, overdid it, or just slept on it wrong. Even worse, maybe you think “it’s normal” because you’re getting older…
Is that how you’re feeling right now?
If so, you’re not alone. In fact, everyday at Cook Performance & Therapy we help people in the Lake Norman and Mooresville area who feel this way.
You see, with Neck and Shoulder pain, everyone asks us the same questions…
Why does it hurt so much? (I don’t even know what I did…)
Why isn’t this pain going away?
Am I going to have to live with this neck and shoulder pain forever?
Unfortunately, there’s a lot of bad information out there that causes people to live with shoulder and neck pain for way too long. Here are the most common mistakes we see the people in the Lake Norman and Mooresville area making when it comes to their pain...
Mistake #1: Thinking the neck and shoulder pain will go away with rest or different positions.
Mistake #2: Believing the pain will be “fixed” with painkillers.
Mistake #3: Assuming shoulder and neck pain is a “normal” part of getting older…
Mistake #4: Believing that since you tried other healthcare professionals (maybe even Physical Therapy) in the past means that it won’t work now.
Mistake #5: Relying on “Dr. Google” or YouTube for exercises that didn’t make any difference (or maybe even made your neck or shoulder feel worse!)
Mistake #6: Getting relaxing massages to temporary relieve the pain, only to find it comes back after the massage wears off.
Have you been making these mistakes?
If any of this has happened to you, we want to say “we are sorry”...but remind you that you’re not alone.
In fact, we see people just like you every day.
But maybe you feel like you’ve read a lot of free information on the internet, and really just want to talk to someone about your problem.
Is that you?
If so, then we have a special opportunity for you (one that VERY FEW clinics offer).
We save a limited number of spots each week for time for people who are not sure what to do about their shoulder and neck pain.
That way, you can tell a professional your story, and get your question answered first, before ever making a commitment to book an appointment.
Does that sound like something you would like to do?
Here’s the most important thing…
Most people get stuck trying to make a decision about what to do next.
They go days, weeks, months (even years!) without taking action.
The one thing we can guarantee is that by doing nothing, your neck or shoulder pain won’t get better.
So the next important thing is to take action.
Here are your best options to decide if Physical Therapy is right for you:

Specialty Treatment From Cook Performance & Therapy
(and how happy they are now...)
"After being diagnosed with a very uncommon injury I decided to visit Andy to see if he could help. He had done wonders for my husband following an auto accident. Having been in the fitness industry my entire life, I knew that all PT’s are not created equal. I still went in to see him with some reservation. He did my evaluation and said he had done some research on my condition and contacted my doctor. He really knew more than any of the 7 doctors I had gone to see locally. I actually was diagnosed 1,200 miles from home from a core specialist. Ultimately, we were hoping to prevent me from having to have surgery, but after looking at my mri, he said it was inevitable. Usually I question physicians!!!! I know when Andy talks it is what it is. I never doubted anything he said. He really is that good. I was fortunate to have had him help me and my husband before he relocated. We really miss working with him as he cannot be replaced. He is by far the best PT I have ever come in contact with personally and professionally."
"I have been suffering with back and hip issues for years and after my sessions with Dr. Cook I couldn’t be more pleased. The combination of dry needling and physical therapy exercises and recommended supplements have made me feel better than anything else I have tried....and I have tried it all! Thanks, Andy."
"In 2016 I tore my glute playing tennis and in 2017 I tore my meniscus in my right knee. Dr. Andy Cook helped me immensely and was instrumental in my rehabilitation. At 76 years old I feel I am totally recovered and back playing tennis and golf. I would highly recommend Andy for rehabilitation (He diagnosed my torn glute while I was being erroneously treated for a bulging disc)."
