Positively Impacting Pain Treatment With NST

The Buzz on NST

‘I’ve never had a massage like that!’ is the most common statement from NST patients after their first treatment. Hear what they, their physicians, and students of NST have to say about this restorative form of pain treatment.

The results exceeded my greatest expectation. Since my first visit, I have had no hand or forearm pain and disability. No m ore braces. After the 5th consecutive visit, I have pain free range of motion, both arms and shoulders, full nights of painless, uninterrupted sleep and I’m back to my former level of activity which is strenuous for a 61 year old woman. I spent my entire professional life in the medical field and my husband, who is a surgeon, attended every therapy session, and can’t believe the results. Thank you for the relief and coordination of scheduling so I could accomplish so much in five days.

When I first came here, I was in great pain in my lower and mid back. I was also very inflexible. I am now pain-free and can play sports again. The St. John-Clark Pain Treatment Center is a National Treasure! Thank You!

Nothing helped; the medical doctors put me on medication for migraine headaches, which did not work so put me on stronger medication. The medication just made me sleep all the time. I was unable to work until I received treatment at St. John-Clark Pain Treatment Center. My life has changed significantly. I am able to work full time and I now enjoy life. I would like to thank the entire staff at St. John-Clark Pain Treatment Center.
