What Is ASTR?
ASTR is a biopsychosocial treatment model that utilizes unique ASTR instruments, maneuvers, theories and methodologies to treat pain at its source. ASTR treatment includes working on multiple aspects including: scar tissue, fascia restriction, trigger points, muscles spasms, ergonomics, gait, exercise, nutrition, inflammation, stress management, and behavior modification. Results from a recent neck study conducted on ASTR patients found that there was an 87% success rate for patients who went through our program! Find out more here!
