We make a ton of training videos for our staff and other PTs around the world. Occasionally we share them on our blog so those suffering needlessly can see how our hands-on physical therapy helps others to get back to the active lifestyles they want and deserve.
Below is one such video showing an example of mobilization techniques for Soft Tissue Mobilization for neck pain – Do not forget about the triceps!
It is my pleasure to write a review about Jarod Carter at Carter Physiotherapy. I have been Jarod Carter’s client for around 6 weeks. I was referred to Jarod from a highly respected doctor in my hometown of Austin , Texas. I have a injury of unknown etiology or I have no clue how I injured myself, but I have had a high level of neck, shoulder and arm pain for at least a month before I started seeing Jarod. The pain was so bad I lost all my energy and had some sleeping issues. My X-ray showed nothing and MRI showed mild herniation of cervical 3, which is nothing serious. However,I am miserable and also have a huge responsibility of taking care of my 37 year old disabled daughter. After one call, Mary, Jarod’s office manager, got me in to see Jarod the next day. I’m a nurse so I’m trained to assess people in other fields of medicine. Simply put, after my first visit I was so impressed with Jarod’s training, skill,thoroughness and professionalness as well. Jarod basically is as good as it gets and I feel blessed to have found him. Over the last six weeks Jarod has seen me twice weekly and I have improved everytime he works on me and advises me. After 6-7 weeks I’m almost completely pain free. I’m now seeing Jarod on a maintainence basis. He has helped me with my posture, added a cervicle pillow that has improved my neck support while I sleep and given me many helpful home stretches to keep my issues at bay.Jarod also has spent a lot of time improving issues I have with being a caretaker and how I can avoid injury. Jarod Carter is just the best and as a professional I highly recommend him and his clinic.

Video Transcription (please excuse grammatical errors and the conversational nature of the transcription):
“We are working on the traps, the infraspinatus area, and the posterior area from the deltoid to the triceps. A lot of times with these neck issues, there’s tricep tightness. Likewise there may be lateral brachial tightness of the tissues that are involved in the problem but often go unnoticed.”
