  • I had several visits with Todd Fluck at South Jersey Sports Acupuncture now and the results have been way beyond my expectations.

    I began seeing Todd to battle pain in my lower back due to arthritis. After my first visit, I had 50% reduction in pain. After my 3rd visit, I was able to return to all of my normal activities including Brazilian Jiujitsu 3-5 days a week and regular strength training 2-4 times per week.

    I entered SJSA as a skeptic and within a few visits I am now urging my friends and family to make appointments with Todd.

  • My Dr. recommended South Jersey Sports Acupuncture for possible relief of my lower back pain. I wasn’t interested in the steroid shot which was offered to me. After two sessions with Todd, I noticed a significant reduction in my pain level. I’ve been going for about 8 months now and feel so much better. Between acupuncture and the muscle work that Todd does, he has worked magic on my aching back. Todd is patient, skilled and incredibly knowledgeable about the biomechanics and muscle function of the human body and how they need to work together so we feel our best. I highly recommend Todd as a practitioner to help with chronic pain or heal an injury

  • I have awful back spasms (reoccurring/on and off issue). I have tried physical therapy, traditional massages, etc. and nothing seems to offer any sort of immediate relief. My session at South Jersey Sports did. Great customer care and recommend to anyone looking for relief from chronic pain.
