"After having 18 months of traditional physical therapy after two knee surgeries to replace my ACL, I was skeptical that anything more could be done to help my knee pain and stiffness. After just one visit, I was amazed with the results that Doctor Jacobs was able to produce with his Advanced Soft Tissue Release technique! He was very thorough, courteous, and helpful throughout the visit. He took the time to explain the technique to me and how it works. I was very impressed with how my knee responded and loosened up, especially since it has been two years since my original surgery. I went in a skeptic and now I'm a believer!

"I have been troubled with the worsening effects of Ankylosing Spondylities (spine arthritis, back pain). After having lived with the disease for over 40 years, I was skeptical that any relief would be possible. To my astonishment, I experienced immediate relief after one session. I am very appreciative of the work you do."

" I walked in with TMJ, limited range of motion and pain in my neck and shoulders (with shooting pain above my right ear). After just one treatment, my neck and shoulders got immediate relief! After 3 treatments, my sharp shooting pain above my ear was gone. I'm confident that with "Advanced Soft Tissue Release," and my diligence in following the exercise program provided, I will soon feel like new again."

“After suffering from the effects of TMJ and headache pain for nearly 5 years, Doctor Jacobs was able to relieve my pain using his Advanced Soft Tissue Release within a few minutes. His technique was very gentle and was not painful at all.”

"   Not only did Doctor Jacobs help my ailments, he also taught me how to help myself. I initially began treatment with Doctor Jacobs for migraine headaches. Along with the elimination of medication, his ASTR technique reduced my migraines in frequency and intensity tremendously. Alongside my appointment with Doctor Jacobs, I did my assigned exercises at home. The combination was highly effective. He actively listened to my concerns and treated me accordingly. He was great with feedback and knowledgable about my pain and conditions. Throughout my Physical Therapy, Doctor Jacobs helped me with fibromyalgia, muscle pain in my feet legs, back and shoulders and migraine headaches. He gave me information to help me help myself. I will definitely utilize Doctor Jacobs' Wellness program in the future as well."

"From the beginning, I was pleased with the friendliness, service and professionlism of this office! I was able to stop tylenol and ibuprofin, which I had taken at home for a few days after severe overuse of my left knee. It was so good to be pain free and to be able to do the exercises to help my healing. I'm a dancer, so it was important for me to get back to my joyful expression! I was even using a walker in the beginning but got off that quickly and am already carefully dancing again. I appreciate Reliant Physical Therapy so much! Thank you!"

"Dear Dr. Jacobs and Lindsay, I wanted to share this photo with you memorializing my bike ride with two of my Wells Fargo Bank friends.  We biked from Mission Viejo to San Diego this past Saturday.  The weather was ideal for bike riding and, with the exception of a few tiring grades, we made it to San Diego safe and sound.  The photo shows us resting at Torrey Pines State Reserve in Del Mar before our climb up North Torrey Pines Road on the last leg of the trip through La Jolla to San Diego.  I  just wanted to share this photo with you to let you know that I couldn't have made the trip without your professional help.  My back hurt after we finished the ride but I was able to get relief as you taught me with the emergency exercises.  A goal accomplished.  Thanks again for all your help."

"After my first appointment with Doctor Jacobs, I felt so much better. The techniques he used on me weren't "typical." But they really worked. After many sessions with Dr. Jacobs, along with a change in my diet to more natural and organic foods, I am a completely different person. Although the Celiac Disease and Arthritis is something I cannot change, so many other things have changed for the better. My last bone scan came back as basically normal. My symptoms of Fibromyalgia are 80% gone. My symptoms of Carpal Tunnel are 100% gone. And last, but not least, I am 100% off of narcotic pills. I have gained close to 40 pounds and I am now working 3 jobs at a total of about 60 hours a week. 

 

Doctor Jacobs is absolutely incredible and his techniques are groundbreaking. Put your trust in him and you WILL get better. That is something I can promise you. At 23, I am so grateful to have my life back. Thank you, Doctor Jacobs, for making that quality of life incredibly better than it was. No amount of money could ever repay you for all that you have done.
