Do you suffer from back pain?

If so, you are not alone. According to NIH, Americans spend at least $50 billion each year on relieving low back pain. Between 70% and 85% of American adults are effected by low back pain at some point during their life. Back pain can keep you from working out, playing with the kids or performing daily activities at home. Many of our back pain patients have previously tried medications, injections, chiropractor, massage therapy, physical therapy and/ or acupuncture to relieve their back pain, but nothing works. If you are tired of living with chronic back pain, we have great news! There is a brand new technique called Advanced Soft Tissue Release (ASTR), which effectively treats back pain for good!

What is Advanced Soft Tissue Release (ASTR)?

Advanced Soft Tissue Release (ASTR-patent pending) is a very gentle manual therapy technique, created by Dr. Joseph Jacobs, Doctor of Physical Therapy, that gently and effectively treats back pain. Many of our back pain clients who have tried everything under the sun finally find relief with ASTR. Most back pain patients experience pain relief within their first session and testify that Dr. Jacobs' approach is gentle and does not cause additional pain. Most back pain patients boast that the results are immediate and long-lasting. ASTR is exclusively available at Reliant Physical Therapy for back pain patients. Click here to read our patient testimonials and learn how you can also begin living pain free from back pain
