So who is Dr. Hurst, and why did he create Doctor’s Pain Relief Systems™?
Dr Jason Hurst, DC is a Doctor Of Chiropractic licensed to practice in the state of Virginia. He is the owner of Integrative Health Spine & Disc Center, which is the largest Laser clinic in Virginia specializing in chronic pain conditions. For several years now Dr Hurst and his team have been helping thousands of patients get rid of their chronic pain utilizing the latest technologies that are available.
Dr Hurst has also developed a treatment protocol, LaserVibe Therapy. Through the use of Laser Therapy, Spinal Decompression Therapy, Whole Body Vibration Therapy, and a specific stretching and exercise protocol… Dr Hurst is seeing results with his patients that are typically unheard of. Many of his patients are those who have been referred back and forth over the years from doctor to doctor without getting any real relief. Even with the odds stacked against him… Dr Hurst is still getting over a 90% success rate with patients getting relief in just the first visit!
Dr Hurst is also the owner of 3 other Chiropractic clinics in the Richmond, VA community that are designed for the “Wellness” based patient. These offices have been designed for those who really want to receive Chiropractic care, but are tired of being “controlled” by their insurance companies. With the model of care set up at these 3 offices, patients can come in as often as they like, without limitations and without the incredibly high deductibles, co-pays, or co-insurance payments that are required just to get treatment at other offices.
Dr Hurst’s drive to help people doesn’t stop there.
On top of all that he is doing… Dr Hurst is also the owner of Strategic Practice Consultants.
Because of the incredible success he has found in his profession, Dr Hurst has chosen to help coach and teach other Chiropractors how to effectively set-up, run, and market a business to succeed.
And of course… Don’t forget about Doctor’s Pain Relief Systems! What you will find on the pages of this website are all of the tips and tricks that he has been prescribing for his patients over the years.
We asked Dr Hurst what drives him, and why does he care so much about getting people out of pain.
This is what he had to say…
“Well, to start with… I’ve always been intrigued with pain…
What causes it? Why did I always feel like I was in pain? Why does pain hit you like a lightening bolt one minute, and then it completely disappears the next? What really makes pain go away for good?
You see, ever since I was young, I’d get pain in my joints when no one else around me would. When I was in Middle School, I developed a condition known as Osgood-Schlatter Disease in both of my knees. It’s caused by repetitive stress on the tendon below the knee cap, that attaches to the thigh muscles and the shin bone. This repetitive stress causes multiple small fractures of the shin bone, along with chronic inflammation. Otherwise known as “Growing Pains.”
If I would barely bump my knee against my desk at school, it would be so painful that it would bring tears to my eyes. Not much fun to deal with when you are in Middle School! To this day, I can’t kneel down on my knees normally. Imagine taping a rock to your knee and then trying to kneel down on the rock. That’s what it feels like for me to kneel down, still to this day. The confusing part was that I didn’t know anybody in my entire class that had this problem except for me.
I’d also develop Achilles Tendonitis every year during sports in Middle School and High School. This is severe inflammation in the tendon at the bottom of the leg, just above the back of your heel. My coaches would blame me, saying that I didn’t condition myself enough during the off-season. Of course I knew that wasn’t true because as a young athlete in middle school and high school, you really never have an off-season. Besides, I was obsessed with exercise. I knew for a fact that I would train more than a lot of the guys in my grade. But even back then I would think to myself, “Why does this happen to me, but not to anyone else on the team?” So I started to believe my coaches and I blamed myself. I thought I was just being weak.
It’s a shame, because no one ever told me about muscle and joint imbalances when I was younger. No one ever told me that it wasn’t my fault. No one ever told me that I could fix the problems and make sure the symptoms wouldn’t come back again if I would just get my muscles and joints “balanced.”
Some of you may be able to relate to this, but I also never had any flexibility either. Again, I was told it was my fault.
The problem is that coaches and doctors back then didn’t know much about the bio-mechanics of the body and how it contributes to injury. If you have extremely tight hamstring muscles, just stretching “harder” isn’t going to fix the problem. So getting the right type of help was very difficult for me.
I even developed Achilles Tendinitis when I was 23 years old going through basic training in the Army (11B). It started on my second day there, and the pain was excruciating for over 13 straight weeks! I was the only one in my entire platoon that had to deal with this type of pain every day for over 13 weeks. Why?
I love to exercise and lifting weights. But even though I always used the best form possible when lifting weights, I would still end up with a low back injury, or a neck injury, or a knee injury, when others that use the worst form imaginable would never injure themselves at all. Why?
The bottom line is that when you are faced with challenges, you either just give up… or you try to find the answers. You get tired of people telling you that you need to live with the pain. You get tired of hearing that there is nothing else that can be done for you… You just get tired of not getting any real help.
Well, instead of just listening to the opinions of others, I set out to find the reasons why I was always having a new or recurring injury. I knew from personal experience that Chiropractic care always helped me when I was injured. The only problem was that it seemed to be a temporary solution. (I realize now that it was because I was stubborn and I never followed the doctor’s recommendations after the adjustments.)
Medicine never helped, except maybe it dulled the pain for a while. But it never actually “fixes” the problem. Even as a child, I knew that much.
When I was in my mid 20’s, I was at a crossroads in my life and I needed to make a change with my career. At that time, I just happened to have tremendous success with a Chiropractor that helped eliminate my shoulder pain that I was dealing with for over 10 years from a previous surgery I had in high school. I was so amazed at how dealing with the scar tissue, and the muscles and the ligaments, made 10 years of chronic pain literally disappear in only 3 visits! A couple of months later… I was completing my prerequisites… and soon after, I was in school to become a Doctor of Chiropractic.
That’s what most people would consider to be the starting point of my journey to find the answers of how to deal with chronic pain. But I actually believe that my journey began when I was that young boy in Middle School who developed Osgood-Schlatter Disease. You see… I never liked it when someone told me that I couldn’t do something, or that something was my fault when I didn’t believe it was. So for me, the time when I really began questioning the health care system was when the doctors and my coaches had no answers for me other than just to blame me for my injuries. Even at 23 years old… A couple of my Drill Sergeants would make fun of me for walking and running funny when I was in pain during Basic Training.
To me, all of that was just ignorance, and I guess subconsciously, the accumulation of these incidents over the years are what finally drove me to search for the answers on my own. I got tired of letting other people tell me what they thought was my problem, without giving any real solution… and so I decided to find out how to fix my problems on my own.
So here we are today! I often tell my patients, and I will tell you now as well…
“My pain is your gain!”
Whatever your current pain is… chances are, I have already dealt with it myself. Here is just a short list of the things I have done to my body over the years.
- Osgood-Schlatter Disease
- Achilles Tendonitis
- Shin Splints
- Neck Injury in Football
- Knee Injury in Track
- Shoulder Surgery from Football
- Low Back Injury from Lifting Weights
- Elbow Tendonitis
- Fractured Collar Bone
- Severe Leg Injury at a Sawmill that I worked at in High School
- Fractured Ankle
- Multiple Car Accidents
- Mid Back Injury from Falling on Ice
This is the short list!
And… I have re-injured the same areas of my body numerous times. You may have a story similar to mine, but hopefully not! I hope that you might say that you have no idea how your pain started. (Don’t worry; I’m going to help you figure that out.)
It doesn’t matter how the pain developed, it only matters how we are going to treat it.
You see, most people just don’t think about how the body functions on a daily basis. What I’ve learned over the years from treating thousands of patients is that most people really don’t care how the body functions, they just want to feel good all the time. The good news is you don’t have to care how the body functions either.
Follow me. Let me be your guide. The Doctor’s Pain Relief Systems™ website is so jam-packed with material that you will be able to learn more about your pain and how your body functions than you ever wanted to know! But the great news is… you don’t have to learn everything if you don’t want to.
You may want to get out of pain without having to learn anything about how your body functions. No problem. You can take short cuts through the system if you want.
Here’s the honest truth…
I want you to succeed with my proven system, probably even more than you do. I have developed Doctor’s Pain Relief Systems™ specifically to help as many people as I possibly can. It’s my mission to help you eliminate your pain! Put your trust in me, I won’t let you down.
