Learn what causes shoulder pain and how to prevent flare-ups

If you’re one of the millions of Americans who have shoulder pain that can wake you out of a restful night’s sleep – or experiences pain every time you have to reach for something over your head – then this month’s Best of Wellness Connection video is for you!

Dr. Matt is joined by Dr. Susanne, who is an expert in shoulder movement, therapy and treatment. Not only will you learn how the shoulder joint is configured, you will also learn ways to mitigate pain with exercise, when to rest or apply ice, and when to seek help from a healthcare professional.

Of course, the experts at Allied Physical Therapy Wellness Community are always standing by ready to help get you back to what you love – and keep you doing all those things for as long as possible! If the tips offered in this video just aren’t helping –  just call for an appointment, or visit us online at!

Dr Matt and Zaida celebrate her 17th anniversary with Allied

Happy Birthday, Dr. Matt! 🥳

The entire staff of Allied Physical Therapy Wellness Community wished a very Happy Birthday to our own Dr. Matthew Harkness, who shared these reflections on turning 50:

  • Life is about relationships and connecting – they have brought richness, perspective, growth and fulfillment to my life.
  • Life is about the long game; being consistent, and appreciating steady progress.
  • Life is about being present – being where my two feet are.
  • Life is about serving, giving and contributing.
  • Do not compare myself to others.
  • My faith gives me confidence, a steady footing, and brings purpose to all that I do.
  • Be open.
  • Be me: Sincere, vulnerable, hopeful, faithful, always listening and always growing.
  • On the other side of Tension is growth… breathe… learn… pray.
  • Morning is my favorite time of day; breakfast is my favorite meal.
  • I recharge in nature, when I write, when I worship, and when I am one-on-one with those that I love.
  • Always be a student; learning and asking for help.
  • Take time to reflect, process, step back and get perspective.
  • Every person in my life is unique and has something wonderful to contribute to my life.
  • Always the see the good and the potential in others.
  • Nothing is ever perfect or ideal.
  • Be flexible and bendable – and make adjustments as necessary.
  • There is no challenge that I can’t handle with God’s help.
