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

Dear Frustrated Reader With Shoulder Pain and Stiffness,
If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you are in the right place!
Many people within the Lowell area suffer unnecessarily with shoulder 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 shoulder 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 Shoulder 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 pain 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 and 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 shoulder 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 shoulder 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 results 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 avoid 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 shoulder 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 the pain and stiffness coming back
…Be able to get back to your workouts and training
…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. (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 your training over problems that can be fixed.

Sincerely,

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

Brian B: Overcame shoulder pain.

I live in Boston and we mostly worked together remotely for about a year (until my work schedule got too hectic). He helped me put together workout and diet plans to help me achieve my fitness goals, and our regular interactions through email and Skype were very useful for keeping me on track and accountable. Even though I’ve been lifting for many years, I’d never previously hired a trainer and was impressed how a few little adjustments to diet and technique improved my results and made me much less injury-prone.

TJ H: Overcame shoulder injury.

Working with Brett has been fantastic. After a subpar experience working with a multi-location PT Facility I turned to Brett for help, and results/recovery ensued immediately. I’ve been seeing him for a shoulder injury that has severely affected my lifting program – Brett took his time diagnosing the issue and explained it in terms that made it easy to understand. Further, he developed a progressive rehabilitation plan entirely customized to my injury. Best of all, his sessions are 1 on 1 so I don’t have to wait between exercises or work with a different person each time I go.

Daniel P: Overcame shoulder pain.

After dislocating my shoulder I wanted to get back into lifting heavy so I had a consultation with Brett. He set me down and went over my medical history, went through an examination of range of motion and strength. Then he proceeded to show me exercises to ease back into the lifting world and make sure I don’t risk re-injury. It’s been a year since the injury and so far so good. Brett also does training seminars and has a YouTube channel you should subscribe to. Also occasionally Bobby/Brett will bring in there dogs. Deadlifts & dogs? Can you ask for anything better? There is no other gym I would rather train at than SBC. It simply has the best equipment, community and personnel.
