Imagine being able to lift weights, bend forward, run and remain active without suffering from the pain and anxiety brought on by your low back...

We have helped hundreds of people who have failed prior treatments including 



Physical Therapy



Did you know...

Up to 90% of patients, and back specialists, still don't know what structure is causing your pain even with an MRI, CT scan or x-ray!

Up to 40% of low back patients don't respond to standard treatments and these poor outcomes have led to an increase in chronic pain, opioid use and disability!

You might be thinking.. "But how can someone like me (who has tried injections, surgery, physical therapy, chiropractic, massage, accupuncture, ibuprofen, hot/cold packs) become pain free?"

At Fuel Physical Therapy & Sports Performance, we find the root cause of your symptoms to create a treatment plan that is customized to YOUR needs! Your care should be specific to you and not a generalized, one size fits all approach. Your pain may be caused by..



Herniated/Bulging Disk

Degenerative Disk Disease

Spinal Stenosis


Muscle Spasms

And More

"I came to Eric with low back pain that I have had on and off for years. He gave me the tools to get over my acute injury and set me up to be stronger and more flexible. I have been able to utilize the knowledge he gave me to be back pain free for a few years now! Highly recommend Eric!"

Zach C.

"Dr. Eric was the 4th specialist I saw seeking help for a back injury. Everyone else had suggested pain meds and limiting my movement to ensure I didn’t worsen the injury over time. Meeting Eric was a breath of fresh air as he listened to my issues, and made a plan of action for me that aligned with my goals as an athlete. He met me at my gym, walked me through a variety of therapies and exercises, and I felt relief for the first time in months after our first session together. He worked diligently with my primary doc and insurance as well. His follow up and follow through made all the difference, as he helped me reach my weightlifting PR’s in less than a month of treatment with him. I won’t go to another physical therapist ever again!"
