Back and Neck Pain

Have you been living with back or neck pain? These are common conditions; however that does not mean you have to live with this pain. Here at Sutton Place Physical Therapy we use a variety of treatment techniques to relieve your pain, improve your fitness, and prevent future injury. These include soft tissue massage, manual mobilizations, electric stimulation, and lumbar and core muscular stabilization programs. Your physical therapist will design a unique program specifically to fit your condition.

Before and After Surgery

When you’re having surgery it is important to be at your maximum level of function prior to the procedure in order to have the best recovery possible. This is true for any surgery including total hip and knee replacements, spinal procedures, ankle and foot fusions, bunionectomies, surgically repaired fractures, ACL/MCL repairs, rotator cuff repairs, labral repairs, Achilles Tendon repairs, and many more procedures.

After surgery, physical therapy is vital to recovery. Your range of motion will be limited and your strength will diminish as a result of surgery. Sutton Place Physical Therapy will work with you to regain your function and achieve your personal goals.

Breast Cancer

After your surgery or breast cancer treatment, it can be common to experience limited shoulder and neck range of motion, weakness, and pain with arm movement. Sutton Place Physical Therapy’s Breast Cancer Rehabilitation Program is designed to tackle these impairments, restore your mobility, and prevent long term negative effects. Treatments will include soft tissue mobilization, joint mobilization, neuromuscular re-education, and motor facilitation techniques. Research has shown that these treatments are very effective in decreasing your pain and restoring your mobility.


Concussions are complex injuries with prolonged and debilitating symptoms including migraines, cognitive changes, sleep disturbance, and neuropsychiatric disturbances.  Because every case is unique, there is no set timeframe for recovery of symptoms: some people recover in days and others endure long-term effects.

If you or someone you know has suffered a concussion, you may experience difficulty balancing, symptoms of dizziness, or significant neck tension/headaches.  Based on a thorough evaluation by one of our skilled physical therapists, we will be able to determine how to best address these limitations and help you safely return to a symptom free lifestyle.  

Our Physical Therapists can help to gradually and safely reduce dizziness symptoms by stimulating the vestibular system: the balance center in the brain.  The therapist will provide specialized exercises to improve your balance and regain stability.  Neck injuries can cause headaches and can even increase certain forms of dizziness. Your therapist will assess your neck after a concussion to help reduce headache symptoms and tension with therapeutic soft tissue massage, joint mobilizations, and postural strengthening exercises.

It is important that you contact your healthcare professional in a timely manner following a concussion so that you may achieve the highest level of recovery possible. Do not hesitate to call Sutton Place Physical Therapy today!
