BOISE, ID / ACCESSWIRE / May 25, 2021 / The ASTR Institute is pleased to announce their Advanced Soft Tissue Release pain treatment program, once only available in a clinical setting, is now available for home use. ASTR is a treatment approach developed by Dr. Joseph Jacobs that treats pain at its source. This program takes less than 5 minutes a day, with easy to use medical tools and a holistic approach to healing. ASTR was created by a doctor that had suffered from chronic pain to treat the root cause of the pain, not just the symptoms. The ASTR treatment regimen is supported by over 45 clinical research and academic studies.
The average chronic pain patient will see 6 specialists (Physical Therapist, Chiropractor, Massage, etc.) and receive 14-25 treatments, often with inconsistent outcomes. With ASTR, 83% of patients experience significant pain relief within 1st session, and 87% were still pain free 1-2 years later based on ASTR neck study. Traditional pain treatments can be invasive, take a long time, and can be painful themselves. ASTR is gentle and non-invasive, with quicker outcomes. Advanced Soft Tissue Release (ASTR) has been registered with the US Patent and Trademark Office.
Their patented tools gently break down scar tissue and fascia restriction, while reducing the inflammation that often causes chronic pain. ASTR addresses proper nutrition, inflammation, laboratory testing, posture, body mechanics, ergonomics, lifestyle changes and exercises. Patients who are ready to treat themselves from the comfort of their own homes can now order step-by-step online programs and easy to use tool kits. These high quality programs and tool kits are also available for providers who want to provide their patients with fast, long term pain relief. While we are starting to see the world open up again, this allows patients suffering from chronic pain to stay safe from the pandemic.
Dr. Joseph Jacobs, Doctor of Physical Therapy, developed the Advanced Soft Tissue after he and his wife had suffered from chronic pain themselves. Dr. Jacobs is a 2 time cancer survivor, and that inspires him in his mission to help patients overcome their disability and pain. Dr. Jacobs used to suffer from chronic migraines, headaches, fatigue, and pain after his second cancer treatment. He could not overcome his disability and relieve his symptoms using the traditional treatments he had learned in school. This led him to develop ASTR.
Dr. Jacobs talked about his motivations to develop ASTR for home use, "It is hard for a lot of patients to leave their home with chronic pain especially during COVID pandemic. There is an urgent need to have a safe convenient self-treatment option for patients at home. I am so excited to be the first to offer patient an option to use medical tools and online self-treatment programs that they can used to relieve pain in the comfort of their home. After my second cancer treatment I used to suffer from chronic fatigue, pain, migraines and headaches. I could not find long-term relief with the modalities that I learn in school that what led me to invent ASTR treatment."
