As a Pain Medicine Physician, it is my job to provide the most extensive treatment options available for patients experiencing chronic pain. When I myself began having issues with back pain, and none of the regular treatments I use with my own patients seemed to provide relief, I discovered Neurosomatic Therapy. The dramatic results I experienced encouraged me to further research and ultimately decide to begin regularly referring patients for Neurosomatic Therapy. Incorporating this new modality has allowed me to achieve new levels of recovery for patients where I could previously only manage their symptoms.

I am trained as a chiropractor but most of my work is now in functional medicine. Neurosomatic Therapy Integrates very nicely with what I do in both of these fields. NST combines a deep knowledge of muscle dynamics with a thorough analysis about what is going on with the body in a way that is being missed by many other disciplines. The therapy is implemented very uniquely and it is done with the idea of integrating the functional aspect of the muscles with the structure. Understanding that marriage between structure and function is why the area not only gets fixed but also truly stabilized. I love referring patients for Neurosomatic Therapy because they get great results.

As a neuromuscular dentist, it was easy for me to recognize the potential benefits of working with THE “premier” team of Neurosomatic therapists. I started referring some of my most challenging patient cases who weren’t responding to therapies that otherwise should have worked. After just a few sessions of INT with the outstanding therapists at the St. John-Clark Pain Treatment Center, my patients were reporting back to me verifiable significant improvements. In particular the relationship between TMJ and other structural imbalances such as an anatomically short leg. The relationship between form and function and its importance cannot be over-stated! My last three patients that were to sent for therapy all came back to me reporting complete abatement of their symptoms

Recently I saw the most amazing body therapist I have met, Paul St. John, an Integrative Neurosomatic Therapist. He took proper X-Rays, very different from those taken earlier. These showed not only a 5 mm short left leg but an 8 mm short left pelvis! He told me that a heel lift actually aggravates the problem as it rotates the leg and pelvis. What you need is a full shoe insert!! If the discrepancy is as great as one-half inch, you will need the shoe built up on the sole. With that lift in my left shoe, my two shoulders are even when I stand--for the first time in at least 38 years! He then provided me with a pelvic lift to use when I am sitting and my shoulders are level when I sit. I feel that my left sacroiliac is back to normal. At some point I will tell more about my visit with Paul St. John. Meanwhile, if you have any type of spinal or sacral discomfort and nothing has helped, I consider it well worth the trip to Clearwater, Florida to see Paul!

Patient Testimonials

I just wanted to take a moment to say “thank-you” to Paul St. John for the help he has given to our family, especially my three children, ages 14, 12 and 9 years. All of my kids had a leg length difference with major pain consequences in their backs and legs. In just one years’ time, Paul addressed all of their issues to the extent that we only come in for periodic maintenance or when one of them gets an injury (usually sports related). My 9 year old is a competitive ice skater and thanks to Paul working with her, she is doing fantastic and even got to perform in the ice show at Busch Gardens! Thank you so much for always being there for us Paul!

I was at the end of my rope with constant, daily, increasing neck pain for 30 years. I couldn’t turn my head to look over my shoulder and it was becoming too dangerous for me to drive. Travel was impossible without my bulky neck pillow and my Ibuprophen consumption had increased to 1,400 mg a day. My options, according to three orthopedic surgeons, were traction, heavy pain medications or neck surgery. After scheduling surgery with a local hospital, an associate of mine insisted I show Paul my MRI films and X-rays. I did not believe in “alternative medicine” and was quite skeptical about this visit. This advice changed the course of my life as neck fusion surgery was NOT necessary. I had whiplash, worn discs, and arthritis in my neck and a leg-length difference; none of which was discovered by the surgeons. After my 1st treatment by Paul I was 75% pain-free. Decades of pain resolved in just ninety minutes! Had I opted for the neck fusion surgery, my soft tissue issues would have remained unresolved and the pain would have continued. I will always have arthritis in my neck, and it is the place where I “carry my stress”, but thanks to Paul and staff, I am pain-free without surgery. Because of the sincerity of every therapist I have encountered at Paul St John’s clinic though the years, I know which movements to avoid and which stretches to use to protect my neck. Besides eliminating my excruciating pain, they have taught me how to live a full life with this weak spot in my body. For this I will always be grateful, sharing my story with all who will listen.

My sister in-law and my mother-in-law, Renee and Dorothy, referred me to Randy Clark 3-1/2 years ago. Since beginning treatments with Randy, his healing therapy has carried me through several major back "incidents" related to bulging and degenerative disc problems, as well as complicated hysterectomy-related pain issue.

I am a woman sixty-one years of age. I have been going to Paul St. John for thirteen years on and off for several different injuries or problems. I started with a work related neck injury, which lead to a frozen shoulder. My doctor gave me drugs and physical therapy but nothing took the constant pain away. That is when I looked into alternative methods and found the Paul St. John Method of treatment.

Each therapist starts with observing and measuring your body alignment, because of this a short leg was observed on me between the hip and knee, causing my vertebrae to bend in the shape of the letter C. This went undetected my whole life. I inherited my dad's short leg, which aggravated my neck and shoulder problems. Therefore, they suggested putting a nine-millimeter build up to the sole of one shoe. Adding the nine-millimeter and neuromuscular therapy corrected all these problems. I have also had treatment for my back and both knees because of sport injuries.

Now, I am coming for treatment because of my feet. They have frozen up on me after having a double bunionectomy. My toes are bending more each time I come. I can even run now! Thanks to the St. John-Clark Pain Treatment Center, I am a healthy active senior citizen.

I have been going to a chiropractor for over 30 years. I usually get temporary relief for a week or two and then am back for another treatment. Not cure for 30 plus years.

Sometime in early 2003, my therapist spoke at a Rotary Club I was a member of. During the time he spoke, he used a member of the club as a subject. In his description of his posture misalignments, his description of the way he could help made sense. In my first visit his fingers across my back caused pain, now he uses his elbows.

I no longer see the chiropractor. I have recommended this massage to my girl friend, my brother and sister-in-law, my friend and my girl friends sister. We all feel better and have returned for more massages and maintenance. I recommend this highly.

In 1987, I was involved in a traffic accident. Diagnosis was soft tissue damage that I would have to live with. After 2 or 3 massages, soft tissue problems and pain are gone and have not returned for 1 1/2 years.

My acknowledgement will start and end with thank you. I presented with a 10-year history of bilateral shoulder pain and dysfunction, deteriorating to disabling pain and loss of function. All this is the result of injury. After diagnosis of rotator cuff tears, multiple visits to the orthopedic surgeons, scans, physical therapy, and no improvement, I began massage with some temporary pain relief. However any sudden movement produced excruciating pain. The disability increased to where I could drive only with my hands in the six o'clock position on the wheel. The pain escalated to sleep interruption, and the pain and numbness in both hands and forearms increased to the point of wearing hand braces bilaterally.

A friend suggested your center. No small task. You were in Florida and I was in Ohio. I had never heard of you and was taking a risk. However the expectation that I could find comfort diminished the worst-case concept of a "wasted trip".

The results exceeded my greatest expectation. Since my first visit, I have had no hand or forearm pain and disability. No more 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 black 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!

I have a son and daughter who are both Professional Tennis Players. However, both had to stop playing tennis due to terrible back pain and a groin problem. My son had two operations to try and get rid of the pain, all to no avail. We were recommended to Paul St. John as an expert in treating pain and sports injuries. What a genius he is! After several appointments each week for one month he had both tennis players back on the court, hitting pain free! After two months they were playing matches and now six months later they are both successful in tennis! They have just played the Davis Cup and Fed Cup for their country. They still see Paul for treatments and a check up when we are in America. Without Paul's clever hands and wonderful mind, I doubt whether my son and daughter would be professional athletes. I cannot recommend Paul and the St. John-Clark Pain Treatment Center more highly!

I am thankful to my friends for telling me about St. John-Clark Pain Treatment Center. I have suffered from headaches and vertigo all of my adult life. I had a headache before being treated by St. John-Clark Pain Treatment Center.

Before my treatments, I tried many other treatments such as chiropractic, medical doctors, hypnosis, and other types of massage.

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.

In 1982, I completed the Iron Man Triathlon in Hawaii. Within two years, I had the "full monte" of Fibromyalgia - chronic fatigue syndrome - food/pollen allergies. I suffered with these syndromes until 2001 until Paul put my atlas back into alignment; massaged my intestines and corrected my 12mm short leg with a full lift. Viola, I am back to 4-5 hours of exercise again. "Jack Lalane Jr. is back!"

Since infancy and to age 75 years of age, I have fallen continually. After breaking both hops and a stroke, I was told about St. John. I began treatment and was amazed to find out via X-ray, my body was off 8mm on my right side. Therefore, my right shoe needed elevation and one year of deep muscle treatment. No wonder I was falling so much, as I never walked straight. I highly advise all suffering back pain or whatever kind of pain to contact the St. John-Clark Pain Treatment Center and see results in your health.
