A Message From Brett Scott, Owner & Founder of Barbell Therapy & Performance

Dear Frustrated Reader With Back Pain and Stiffness,
If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you are in the right place!
You see, many people within Lowell suffer unnecessarily with back pain and stiffness because they’re told…
The Truth Is...

At Barbell Therapy & Performance, we help athletes and active adults move better, live pain-free, and get stronger without painkillers, surgery, or injections.

It can be very confusing to decide exactly what you should do if you have back pain and stiffness. You’ve likely heard a lot of options such as…

It’s overwhelming to try to make a decision with all these choices… what will happen if you don’t make the right one?

Most people get stuck trying to make a decision about what to do next. They go days, weeks, months (even years!) without taking action.

When It Comes to Solving Something Serious Like Back Pain & Stiffness…

You must choose the right provider for your health. If you don’t, you could end up getting dangerous surgery (when it was unnecessary) or being dependent on addicting painkillers the rest of your life.

Getting the “least-invasive”, most natural treatment is VITAL to you stopping your back pain and stiffness and keeping it from ever coming back.

To do that, you have to not just treat the pain, but have a provider who is willing to figure out WHY the pain happened in the first place. That’s when you’ll get a PERMANENT solution to your problems.

At Barbell Therapy & Performance we’ve created a 3 step process to get rid of your pain AND make sure it doesn’t come back again.

Step #1 - We Want to Listen to Your Story

Our medical system is frustrating. You wait weeks, sometimes months, for an appointment, only to get to talk to the doctors for 10 minutes before they have to run to the next patient and you’re left sitting there wondering, “What just happened?”

Even most physical therapy clinics operate this way. They’re not attentive, they’re fast-paced, and your therapist doesn’t have time to actually touch where you hurt.

This is why our first step is to listen to your story.

After working with lots of people with back pain and stiffness, we know that no two people are alike. Each person has a different body, a different history, and different types of pain.

That is why our first step is to have an open conversation and time for you to tell your story. That way we get a deep understanding of what’s going on not just with your body, but also how it’s impacting your life.

Step #2 - Find Out WHY YOUR Back Pain Started

Many people have a diagnosis, or medical term for what’s going on with their body. Maybe their doctor gave it to them, maybe test rests showed the diagnosis, or maybe you found it online.

You could have been told that your only choice was to rest, get injections and take pills, or change your workout routines.

Sometimes, those things bring temporarily relief, but they’re not addressing what CAUSED the problem in the first place.

Every person’s cause of back pain and stiffness is different. No one has the exact same problem caused by the exact same thing as another person.

Our goal at Barbell Therapy and Performance is to find that original cause of your pain, so not only does your pain go away, it STAYS AWAY!

We understand that you still might be skeptical or unsure if physical therapy is right for you. That’s why we created a free taster session. (Yes! That means the first session is ON US!)

Our Consultation Sessions are meant specifically for those people who are skeptical, unsure, or have even been let down in the past. During the Taster Session you’ll find out what’s wrong, how long it’s going to take to fix it, and give you peace of mind that your problem can be fixed naturally!

Step #3 - Get Rid Of The Pain & Keep It From Coming Back

This is when the big transformations occur. We develop a personalized plan that allows you to…

…Get back to exercising without fear of low back pain and stiffness coming back
…Be able to get back to your workouts, training, and competing
…Get back to your pre-injury lifestyle you love

Our best clients are those who are motivated and ready to win back their active lifestyle and athletic lifestyle. (Even if they feel stuck right now!)

Want to know more about our availability and costs before making any commitment to coming in?

You don’t have to sacrifice the workouts and activities you love over problems that can be fixed.

Sincerely,

Dr. Brett Scott, PT, DPT, USAW-1

Devin C: Overcame back pain and injury.

Very professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and highly skilled therapist. I have been working with Brett for over 3 years now. I first started working with Brett for personal training. After a back injury I started working with him as my physical therapist. I am always impressed and satisfied with services received; he takes the time to explain the causes of symptoms and pains and explains what needs to get worked on, why and how to safely go about it. My back pain is much more controllable and less frequent and I am much stronger than before we started working together. I would recommend anyone suffering from joint pain, an injury, or looking to step up his or her training gives Barbell Therapy a call.

Charles S: Overcame back pain and injury.

I had suffered a herniated/bulging disk, and it created even issues walking. I was determined not to have surgery, and after explaining and consulting with him – Brett agreed. He and I met, close to a dozen times, working on muscle activation work, and how to stay active, while treating the disk, and even aiding in the bulge to be ‘pulled in’. I never had the surgery and years later, I still give Brett the lion share of the credit. I constantly refer to him in conversation, regardless of whether it’s for massage, Grastoning, recovery, strengthening a weakness, or techniques on Olympic or Powerlifting. And I proudly still wear my Barbell Therapy shirt occasionally to the gym.. because now, 6+ years later, I have been relatively, 98+% pain free…

Jessica B: Overcame severe back pain.

I highly recommend Brett for physical therapy work! I knew he was the person I needed to go to when I started experiencing severe back pain a month out from my first USAPL meet (regionals)… long story short, with a slew of personal stress, alongside gym fatigue, I was in a pickle and didn’t know what to do. I knew Brett has worked with other lifters in the past and got them working again so that they could compete, and so he was my first option. I ended up seeing Brett twice a week for two and a half weeks leading up to the meet, and I no longer had back pain! Brett is incredibly easy to work with and schedule with, and he takes out of network insurance, so I was able to pay for the sessions with my insurance card…
