What is ASTR?
ASTR is a biopsychosocial treatment model that uses unique patented tools, maneuvers and methodologies to quickly treat pain at its source. ASTR treatment addresses inflammation, by looking at patients nutrition and bloodwork, scar tissue and fascia release, trigger points and muscle spasms, ergonomics and posture, body mechanics, gait, exercise and behavior modification.
Why do providers choose ASTR?
1. Our tools work fast and are ergonomically designed with providers in mind:
Before ASTR, I was exhausted treating dozens of patients every day, doing 20 min of manual therapy per patient just to treat 1 BODY PART! I started to suffer from carpal tunnel and chronic shoulder pain from all of the work I was putting into each patient. With ASTR tools, providers use minimal energy and can treat multiple body parts within 5-10 minutes!
2. Our tools work effectively:
Before ASTR, I would see patients for 3-6 months before discharging them and many would return later with the same issue. Based on a recent ASTR neck study, 83% of patients experienced significant pain relief and increased range of motion within their 1st ASTR treatment and 87% were still pain free from the original diagnosis when we followed up with them 1-2 years later.
3. Our tools work gently:
Unfortunately, patients are conditioned to believe that in order for treatment to be effective, it has to be painful and invasive. At ASTR, our approach to treatment is always virtually pain free. We believe pain is the body’s protective mechanism to keep us safe. ASTR’s tools gently glide on the skin and don’t cause trauma or bruising. Patients describe treatment as gentle and relaxing and they actually look forward to treatment! As a result, patient satisfaction and trust in their healthcare provider grows and they become loyal customers as a result.
Who can take ASTR’s online course?
Anyone! Physical therapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, naturopathic doctors and nurses name just a few of the healthcare professionals who take our online courses and purchase tools!
