I've been experiencing lower back pain for quite some time. I came into the pain relief center hoping for answers, but I received so much more. I had imaging taken of my lower back, a head to toe examination, and a treatment plan made. Dr. Fechter went over my x-rays in great detail. Since my initial visit I have had numerous appointments and my back pain is just about non-existent. The staff is friendly and helpful. Dr. Fechter is never too busy to answer questions or fit you in. This business is highly recommended for real results. Thank you Pain Relief Center!
Dr. Fetcher is very professional and good at what he does. I went in with major back pains where I could hardly walk. It was also very uncomfortable to walk. After just one day of being seen and treated, I walked out feeling amazing. My pain was completely gone, it was like I walked out with a new back. Would highly recommend going to see him. He was amazing!!! I am definitely going back for the rest of my treatments.
I have been very happy with the staff and services associated with this facility. They are very nice and pleasant to work with. I went to them when I started having severe back pain. They were able to get me in as a new patient. After a consult, they did some therapy to help ease my pain. Once they were able to get X-Rays done, they explained everything that was occurring to me, and put me on a course of treatment. Since going to them, I have begun feeling a lot better and am seeing improvement every day.
As a mover by trade, I have done significant damage to my back over the years. Additionally, I have three young boys (10, 3 & 2) who require me to carry them constantly. Sometime in early 2014, I developed a dull, quiet pain in my lower back. As time went on, I sought multiple chiropractors and massage therapists to help ease the pain, and gradually continued growing my business. Dr. Scott Fetcher is the First chiropractor/back specialist whose priority from day one was HEALING... not the “band-aid” adjustments. Dr. Scotts plan was to fully examine me, (with instant x-rays) then he Explained WHY I was hurting and taught ME ways to heal on my own. Without sending me to the revolving door other places have offered. Thanks to Dr. Scott, after 6 weeks following his guidance and implementing his training techniques, my back is healed, and I haven’t felt this great in 5 years! Thanks again Dr. Scott.
Always professional and thorough! Dr. Fechter helps relieve my neck and back pain and always offers recommendations on ways to prevent pain. I have recommended this clinic to so many people and they are always well taken care of!
My lower back pain was so intense and wouldn't subside. I called for help and received an appointment the same day. In a very short period of time through the expert treatments and recommendations of both Dr. Fechter and Dr. Farrell, along with the healing techniques applied by their awesome staff, my pain is gone!!! I recommend this center very highly!!!!!!!!!
I needed treatment after an auto accent and visited Dr Fechter. I was able to get some immediate relief and Dr Fechter also advised me of stretches and exercises I could do at home to help alleviate pain. Unlike some chiropractors I have visited, they seem to work to get me healthy and out of pain quickly and in few visits as possible. I highly recommend Dr Fechter and the entire staff at the Pain Relief Center.
This place feels like home and family in which they take great care of you!!!!!! From receptionist and massage ladies to the women in the clinic and the docs!!!
Dr Fechter and Dr Farrell are both excellent physicians but most of all they care about their patients and their health.
Very friendly staff who take care of you and explain things clearly and listen to what you say and need.
I went to the PRC after an involuntary involvement in a car accident! Their compassionate, friendly, and professional staff helped me EVERY step of the way. From the minute you walk in the door to the minute you leave you are treated as a friend or family member. Thorough service from medical staff, PT, chiropractic, scheduling, billing, massage...everything! My goal was to heal and get back to triathlons. Six months after accident I placed in 4 out of 5 races! Would not have been able to do that without their comprehensive services!! Thank you to every employee of PRC St Augustine! ❤
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! The staff, the doctors and everyone is incredible. They’re a very family-oriented office. Once they meet you, they make you feel so comfortable. They learn your name and you’re always greeted. Very efficient, trusting, and clean. I Cannot say enough about this place. Please go. I am usually always nervous going into the Doctors office, but I actually look forward to going every time because of the environment.
I first contacted the Pain Relief Center in the fall for sciatica. Barely walking and in so much pain. Although I had never been to a chiropractor before I knew this was an occasion where I needed to go. I spent an entire sleepless, painful night online researching local chiropractors. Although the Pain Relief Center is not covered by my health insurance, Dr Fechter and Dr Farrell had the best reviews so it was worth it to me to go to them and pay out of pocket. I called first thing in the morning and took the first available appointment that day, which was with Dr Farrell. Dr Farrell took great care of me! Although it took many appointments over a few months to get back to my normal level activity/exercising (aerobics, bike riding, beach walking). Dr Farrell is very professional and has a great bedside manner. With the help of the technicians, they all worked well as a team to bring me from a pain level 10+ and barely being able to walk to no pain at all and back doing aerobics. It has been 6 months since I have had any sciatica issues and I am forever grateful to Dr Farrell! Fast forward to the spring, I have a tumble sending me to the ER with a fractured radial head and a severely sprained wrist. While recovering from the injury and working with physical therapy I still had a lot of lingering pain from my shoulder to my fingertips. Four months after the initial fall I decided I needed to see Dr Farrell with hopes that she would be able to help with the pain so that I could actually function in daily life and improve with physical therapy. Dr Farrrell saw me right away and in 2 appointments the relief was significant!!! By 4 appointments I felt the best I had since the injury! Not being in pain has made physical therapy so much better/productive. I can sleep at night, with no discomfort! I am able to do so much more with my arm and hand and finally feel that I am actually getting better. Once again, forever grateful to Dr. Farrell! If you are looking for a chiropractor, start here with the Pain Relief Center. I am so glad I did! Everyone on staff is super friendly and Dr Farrell and Dr Fechter are awesome.
Dr. Fechter, I wanted to take a moment to express my thanks for your help getting me literally back on my feet earlier this year. After suffering through months of severe low back and sciatica pain, you took me from a world of constant agony to virtually pain free in short order. I greatly appreciated the way that you clearly and plainly explained what the root of the problem was and the methods you were going to use to treat me. I had a bad experience with a chiropractor many years ago so have always shied away from seeking one out, but I now tell everyone that I know a GREAT chiropractor and your easy manner makes it an easy referral. Thank you!!
If you have given up all hope and thought you would just have to live your entire life with neck, back and shoulder pain like I did, please call Dr. Scott Fechter! I was rear-ended in a car accident in April of 2018. The accident caused damage to my back, shoulders, and neck leaving me in excruciating pain, debilitating migraines, vertigo and back spasms. My very physical and active life abruptly stopped. Being in Florida for less than a year I didn’t know where to go and JOI was suggested by coworkers. My first appointment lasted all of 20 minutes (in the waiting room for 40 minutes) and was told I needed physical therapy and if that didn’t work shots would be the next step. The physical therapy plus one medical massage lasted for 3 months. And although I wasn’t getting any better one day much to my surprise, I was abruptly told, “there is nothing more we can do.” And that was the end of that. Being scared to death of needles, I thought I am just going to have to live with this pain for the rest of my life. Turning my head to check traffic, scrubbing the shower, picking up a trash bag or sleeping in an awkward position would cause horrific headaches that led to vertigo, which led to missing work, weddings, gardening, etc. Finally, in October of 2019, a friend told me about Dr. Fechter. On my very first visit, I spent more time with Dr. Fechter than I did in all my visits with JOI. Plus after the consultation and evaluation, he started therapy that day. The multitude of machines and the different types of therapy was not at all like the previous therapy I had received or even seen before in that office, Plus his staff is amazing. Ashley the receptionist, Melissa, and Danielle the therapists and Angela the massage therapist are always so nice. If anyone in this office has ever had a bad day, have never seen it. I started feeling relief from my first visit and although I am not 100% better due to the severity of my injuries, I can see a difference and I am getting better. Thank you will never be enough to tell Dr. Fechter and his staff how much I appreciate all their help, kindness and professionalism!
I have been seeing the staff at the Pain Relief Centre for a couple of months following an auto accident and I am so grateful that I chose this Chiropractic office. Dr. Fechter is my Dr. but Dr. Ferrel is always willing to help. The ladies in the office are equally amazing. They REALLY care about their patients and are always looking out for their best interests. I would highly recommend whether you need care after an accident or just need a regular realignment.
Hear what patients are saying!

Where do I start?!I came into the Pain Relief centre after having a horrific car accident that left me in extreme pain! I called to make an appointment and they got me in that same day! Everyone is so caring and welcoming, they make you feel like family! I’m so thankful for all the staff especially Dr. Farrell and Dr. Fechter who have made my recovery possible.
19:13 24 Nov 20
The Pain Relief Center has been a life-saver for me. While an injury has left me with constant pain in my neck, they have been able to help me manage it as well as possible. All of the physical therapists are great and Dr. Farrell is always trying to think outside the box to figure out the next steps in helping patients recover. Tammy has also helped me considerably and she has a six sense with respect to responding to my particular pain and needs.

I was experiencing pain and tightness in my upper right neck area that extended down to my right shoulder. It was affecting my sleep causing me to wake during the night to adjust my sleep position. I went to the pain relief centre because I had success treating a sciatic nerve years ago. At my visit doctor Scott Fechter focused on the area of pain with treatment that immediately released the tightness in my neck and removed the unnatural stopping points when I would turn my neck. After just one visit I felt so much better. I was able to sleep through the night without pain waking me up. If you are experiencing pain see the pain relief centre.

Both doctors and all of the staff are top notch at Pain Relief Centre. They genuinely care about their patients and it shows in the treatment received. All of the massage therapists are amazing as well and I would highly recommend. They take insurance and do all of the paperwork so it’s easy on the patient. Our family has been going to the Pain Relief for over ten years and are extremely satisfied with their chiropractic care.

I woke up unable to move my neck accompanied by HORRID muscle spasms, Dr. Fechter got me in and treated within hours. Dr. Farrell came out to say hello and check on me also. The new office is beautiful with a friendly staff of skilled professionals. No wait time, excellent follow up instructions and sincere caring by everyone there. If you have acute or chronic conditions - these are the folks to see !

I’ve been in pain for a few days but live so far away that it’s often hard to find time to get in to the office. I was in town this morning for another appointment and stopped by with hopes that they could squeeze me in for an adjustment. Come to find out, they don’t open until 2. I couldn’t come later that afternoon and since everyone was there doing clerical work, they went ahead and gave me treatment. Very unexpected but so grateful. They did their magic and now I feel so much better.

Dr Fechter and staff have been very helpful in treating my back pain after I was hit from behind in my car. He was honest in saying he may be able to make it better or he may only be able help me maintain. Unfortunately the latter is the case. Still its better than nothing. I get massages too which are really helpful as well as adjustments. Thank you all for your kindness and care

This is the best chiropractor, physical therapy, massage and rehab in St.Augustine I have been to and I will not go anywhere else. I love everything about this place. Dr. Farrell and the staff are all just amazing and very friendly. It's definitely a 5 star rating!
20:28 16 Sep 20
Rock stars of the chiropractic profession.I've been fortunate enough to have both of the doctors of this chiropractic practice help me for the past recent years.

Wow, I suddenly had sharp lower back radiating pain that got worse. Even on ice i got no relief. After 4 days I searched reviews and found the Pain Relief Center. Dr. Fechter saw me and after my first treatment, which included emf and ultrasound stretching, he adjusted me. I left pain free and totally amazed. Next day I was pain free. I am doing therapy to strengthen my core and I recommend this group wholeheartedly.

I sent my mother to Dr. Fechter about 2 weeks ago, and she is already feeling better. Seeing my mother in pain is hard to watch, but I saw her yesterday and she looked much better and said she was already feeling relief. He came up with a treatment plan and has her back on the path to living pain free! Seriously, give him a chance to relieve your pain. He is very knowledgeable, trustworthy, and has a heart of gold! You can tell he truly wants the best for his patients.

Thank you Dr. Fechter and staff for the amount of neck pain relief after my very first visit yesterday! I slept comfortably for the first time in a week. Entire saff is friendly, welcoming. Dr. Fechter kindly listened, performed exam, and explained everything along the way. He and his staff addressed both acute neck and chronic back pain. I recommend anyone with new or chronic pain to visit Pain Relief Centre.

This is a very caring facility. After suffering with lower back pain for 4 months going to different facilities and not getting results, the second day I went to pain relief center I felt an enormous improvement. It felt good that I was getting my life back. They really go the extra mile to make sure that you're starting to get relief I would recommend pain relief center to anyone suffering from pain in St Augustine Florida.😘
22:32 23 Apr 20
Doctor Fechter and his team are both professional and friendly. I have only had 2 visits so far and am finding the therapies are helping to release the tension in my neck and shoulders especially. For someone who has been living with daily headaches since being hit by a car in January, this is a tremendous relief. I am recommending the Pain Relief Centre to my friends and colleagues! 😃

21:04 22 Jan 18
Dr.Fechter rocks! If you don't want a salesman... THIS place is the first place where I can see a M.D. or get a adjustment. You can also schedule a relaxing massage. Doc goes to the source of my lower back-neck pain. Super knowledgeable and he knows how to use his gift. Seeing a chiropractor is not an easy assignment because it requires commitment on both physician and patient to meet their common goals of addressing the symptoms and the root causes of the pain. this is not a quick fix; a treatment plan involves a series of adjustments and techniques. I firmly believe that we have the synergy to beat the problems into submission. The game plan has been crafted and will be executed with the optimum results. I am so thankful that I was able to connect with their professional and courteous staff with training, experience, and patient care. Noorman highly recommends! #FMpainrelief
16:08 27 Dec 17
A++ care. I've been seeing chiropractors (and worked for one for a while) for years and this is one one best offices I've ever been to. Very caring and supportive of whatever problems you are dealing with. After a few treatments I'm feeling so much better and with regular exercise, I'm better than normal.

This is the best physical therapy office I have been to in St Augustine, (out of four others). The staff are really friendly, eager to assist, & very well trained. I would definitely recommend this facility over any other in town. The facility & machines are excellent. I recommend Brenda Stevens for manual therapy. Heather, Tiffany, Bergen, Kashia (sp?), Dr. Fechter, Dr. Scott, Dr. Farrell, & anyone else I might have overlooked are the best! Very relaxed & cheerful atmosphere.
20:11 22 Mar 16
Great Job Palatka office.. Every time I step into this office, the ladies greet me with so much grace. They know exactly what to say when i am in pain. Thank you for all you do ladies.
17:17 26 Feb 16
I have been seeing Dr. Scott Fechter for the past 8 years for chronic skeletal issues. I've been to many Chiropractors throughout my life and he's been the only one that has successfully diagnosed certain things and been able to help me. He really cares about ME and wants to do all he can to alleviate your pain. His staff, front office and assistants, are vey kind and professional. I would highly recommend The Pain Relief Center as your Choropractor of choice! S. Woods 2/26/16
