If you feel extreme pain in your heel, it’s likely you have plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is typically the result of tight Achilles tendons (though in some instances, the cause is unclear) and causes inflammation in a band of tissue that connects your heel bone to your toes, resulting in sharp pains. It’s also commonly found in those with arch problems. The pain is usually worst within the first few steps after waking up in the morning, and can worsen after exercise--not during. Visit our specialized physical therapy office near Provo to relieve yourself of the annoying pain in your heel.

What sounds like a problem that should pass in a couple hours, headaches can actually be debilitating for some. Chronic headaches are common nuisances that many adults encounter. They can cause significant mood changes, decrease productivity, and weaken concentration. They’re often the result of neck or muscular tension, but there are solutions. Our physical therapy specialists near the Provo area can alleviate your pain using multiple therapies:
Whether it’s a “crick” in your neck or poor posture, there are a handful of reasons for your neck, back, shoulder, or rib pain. Neck, back, and shoulder pain can be linked to disc bulges or herniations, arthritis, injury, or another cause. Surprisingly, upper back pain can also be linked to your ribs. It can stem from deep breaths, coughing, sneezing, etc. The ribs connect to the spine forming a joint that can become strained. So, what helps? Using our specialized physical therapy near Provo, we can reduce your pain with a combination of some, or all of the following:
The SI joint is where your hip connects to your sacrum and it can be strained by simple motions like lifting, bending, or falling. The pain can be extreme, but fortunately it’s a type of pain that responds well to treatment performed by our registered physical therapists (especially if you seek treatment early). We offer the following services for SI joint pain near the Provo area:
Sciatic Nerve Pain:
The sciatic nerve happens to be the longest and thickest nerve in the body. So, as you can imagine or know firsthand, it’s excruciating when irritated. The sciatic nerve is formed by grouped nerves that exit the spine and link together. These nerves can then become irritated from disc problems in the spine, or from a tight piriformis muscle.
Signs of sciatic nerve irritation: pain travels down your leg--it can go as far as below your knee, your affected leg is numb or tingly, your leg muscles feel weak, or it’s become more painful to sit rather than stand. Sometimes, these symptoms just come as a normal result of the aging process and pain level can vary. If you’re seeking out specialized physical therapy near Provo for your sciatic nerve pain, here are our treatments to relieve the accompanying muscle spasm and pain:
A muscle spasm is the involuntary tightening of a muscle that cannot relax, which causes severe pain that oftentimes radiates into other parts of the body. They are most common when you’re dehydrated, or your muscles are fatigued or overused. A spasm is typically abrupt and short-lived, but painful. It can also come and go at inconsistent intervals. Here at Stronglife near Provo, our physical therapy specialties have been developed over years to treat your muscle spasm by causing a release in muscle tension through various approaches like:
Sprains, Strains, Pulls & Tears:
A sprain happens when one or more ligaments is torn, while a strain affects a muscle or tendon. How badly a muscle is torn will depend on the severity of the sprain or strain. No matter the level of your injury, sprains and strains are frustrating because they limit mobility (for fear of further injury). These types of injuries often take a few weeks to heal, but here’s how our hand & orthopedic physical therapy specialists can speed up the process:

Capsular Contracture (Breast Augmentation Scarring) is commonly found after breast implant surgery and is caused by tightening of scar tissue around the breast implant. Capsular contracture can make your reconstructed breast shift, reshape, or feel quite hard, which is typically very painful. Many patients are unaware of options they have other than going back to the plastic surgeon and having the implants removed or going through with a revision surgery.

Lateral epicondylitis, commonly known as tennis elbow, causes pain in the outer area of the elbow. Multiple muscles in this region share a common tendon and where this tendon attaches to the bone can become inflamed and irritable with this particular condition. Typically, tennis elbow is an overuse injury, but it can also come from a sudden strain. Bending the wrist back (like a backhand shot in tennis) is often the main cause of this condition and can last months to years if not addressed quickly. In the Provo, Utah area, we have different physical therapy specialties at Stronglife that can treat this problem:
