Lifting Injuries

If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you are in the right place!

Many people suffer unnecessarily with lifting pain because they’re told…
The Truth Is...

At UpSlope Physical Therapy & Performance, We Help Lifter get back on the course.

It can be very confusing to decide exactly what you should do if you have pain with lifting. You’ve likely heard a lot of options such as…

Deciding what to do next can be scary and exhausting with all the different options available, but inaction is even worse.

Analysis paralysis is a real phenomenon that prevents people from moving forward. If you’re feeling stuck, don’t worry, you’re not alone.

When It Comes To Solving Something Serious Like a Lifting Injury…

You must select the appropriate healthcare provider for you. If you don’t, you may end up with dangerous surgery (when it wasn’t required) or be addicted to painkillers for the rest of your life.

Getting the “least-invasive”, “most natural” therapy is CRITICAL in preventing your pain from returning.

In order to achieve this, you must find a provider who is willing not only to treat the pain, but also discover its root cause. Once the source of the issue is remedied, your problems will be solved permanently.

At UpSlope PT & Performance we’ve created a 3 step process to get rid of your pain AND make sure it doesn’t come back again.

Step #1 - We Want To Listen To Your Story

The healthcare system is quite inconvenient. You wait weeks, if not months, for an appointment only to be ushered into a room before the doctors have to dash off to the next patient, leaving you sitting there wondering what exactly occurred.

Most physical therapy clinics unfortunately operate in a way that is not conducive to healing. They are usually overbooked and rushed, meaning your therapist likely doesn’t have the time to actually focus on where you’re hurting.

This is why our first step is to listen to your story.

Working with various people suffering from lifting pain, we have observed that everyone is unique. Each person’s body, history and type of pain differs from the next.

That is why our first step is to have an open discussion and give you the opportunity to tell your story. We can then acquire a thorough understanding of what’s going on, not just in your body, but also how it’s impacting your life.

Step #2 - Find Out WHY The Pain With Lifting Started

If you’ve ever looked up your symptoms online or been to the doctor for an ailment, you may have left with a medical term or diagnosis. This can be overwhelming, especially if you’re told that resting, taking painkillers, or surgery are your only options.

Those things don’t always provide immediate relief, but they aren’t addressing the issue that prompted it in the first place. Every person’s cause of lifting discomfort is different. There is no one who has the same problem caused by the same thing as another person.

We strive to identify the unique source of your pain so that not only does your discomfort go away, but it STAYS AWAY! We realize that you might still be doubtful or unsure whether physical therapy is appropriate for you. That’s why we designed our Discovery Visit.

Our Discovery Visits are meant specifically for those people who are skeptical, unsure, or have even been let down in the past. During the Discovery Visit you’ll find out what’s wrong, how long it’s going to take to fix it, and give you peace of mind that your problem can be fixed naturally!

Step #3 - Get Rid Of The Pain & Keep It From Coming Back

This is when the big transformation occurs. We develop a personalized plan that allows you to…

…Lift with peace of mind, knowing the pain won’t come back.
…Be able to get back to your favorite exercises.
…Restart your pre-injury lifting program.

Our best clients are those who are motivated and ready to win back their active lifestyle. (Even if they feel stuck right now!)

You dont have to sacrifice the runs you love over problems that can be fixed.

If you are looking for a highly skilled physical therapist, Frankie is exceptional! I went from limited movement, pain with a buldging disc at L4-5 to fully functional and pain free in 10 sessions. Highly worth it, I can’t recommend Frankie and UpSlope Physical Therapy enough!

I had been having shoulder pain for a year or more--pain with activity, and awakening in the night with a deep ache. Pain was definitely limiting my resistance training, such as push ups, bench press, over shoulder presses. I worked for 6 sessions with Dr. Frankie at UpSlope. She showed me stretches and exercises, and did some deep tissue treatments. We worked on mobility, stability and strength. She set up a program for me to do on my own after making sure I was doing things correctly. I am now PAIN FREE, and back to all the movements and exercises I want to do. No more waking up in pain. I would recommend UpSlope and Dr. Frankie to anyone with shoulder pain!

Dr. Frankie is fantastic. She developed a complete program over the course of a few months to rehab my injured shoulder which was dramatically impacting my everyday life and my favorite sport, climbing. She worked with me to alleviate pain, increase my range of motion, and build strength + give me the tools to avoid issues moving forward--couldn't be happier with the results.

I choose Upslope over other places from their google reviews, they did NOT disappoint. Pricing was fair, communication, follow up and professionalism was excellent. I had Frankie help me start to rehab a shoulder injury over the course of 8 weeks and I'm finally on the path to repairing that issue, still a long way to go, but she really helped me get back into the swing of the progress to heal it up so I can get back to working out and daily activities.
