I have been coming to Integrative Sports and Wellness and love it. I have seen everyone from spine surgeons, physical therapists, and other muscle specialists and none of them have really been able to help me or lead me in the right direction. In just the few first weeks i went here my activity level completely changed and I can now play golf again pain free the way that i have always wanted to. I can play 18 holes now when i could only play 12-13 holes before my back completely gave out. I love the Kinesio Tape that Dr. Russ puts on my back. In fact that first week I was able to play 36 holes in 2 days and my back was barely even sore after my round. Treatments are definitely helping me! I look forward to the rest of my treatment plan. Thanks for giving my life back. Jake R. Lakeway Tx

Back and ACL Rehab:

I've traveled the country and played in many cities where I have injured myself and rehabbed back to playing form. I live in Austin and have trusted Austin Sports and Wellness and Dr. Russ to help me get back on track after a knee reconstruction. They've treated me with the first class professionalism I expect and have benefited from throughout my career.

Acute Low Back (Disc) Pain: 

My back spasmed on me when of all things I was putting a tee in the ground on the first tee of my golf course a few years ago. By that night I could barely walk. There was nothing I could do in order to relieve the pain. I could not get up and down out of a chair, and sleeping was a literal nightmare. I went into see Dr. Jepson a couple of days later when I was still in pretty bad shape. Could not get up an down out of a chair or laying down without an enormous amount of pain. The first thing Dr.Jepson told me was that my hips were way out of whack and that I had a potential disc bulge/herniation. I left his office that first day getting up and down out of the chairs with no issue. I was able to put my socks and shoes on without pain. In a short hour, I was light years from where I walked in. It was later discovered that a disc hernation was present after a second flare up which was worse than the first one exactly 1 year later. Decompression therapy has allowed the disc to heal properly and I currently have no issues. I cannot say enough about the staff at Austin Sports and Wellness. They are terrific!!

Severe Back Pain:

I've been born and raised in Lakeway, TX. I'm 24 and have been diagnosed with scoliosis and thoracic kyphosis, I was told that intense physical therapy for 2-3 years could *possibly* save me from life-long health problems. This was 2 years ago, 7 "physical therapists", not to mention $7,000 of medical debt (with 1st tier health insurance). Obviously, that was a nightmare. Then I met Dr. Russ Jepson and team late last year, 2016. He and his highly trained staff have changed my perspective of my diagnosis to something I can consciously manage. Russ is someone who has not only helped motivate me, but someone whose expertise surpasses the other 7 "Dr's" I've seen. Not to mention I consider him a friend, in merely 4 months of aquantance. As you can tell by now, I'm bitter of how the medical system had taken advantage of me in my past 2 years of therapy; I was too slow to realize it, but maybe you can realize these pitfalls. That being said, if this story doesn't convince you to at least try Austin Sports and Wellness once, nothing will!

ACUTE Low Back Pain:

So, first of all, let me tell you that these guys are miracle workers. They are totally professional. Dr. Russ Jepson totally knows what he is doing and actually cares about getting you well. He is very thorough and competent. I threw my back out two weeks ago and went to my M.D. He gave me a bunch of muscle relaxers and steroids to kill the inflammation, but did NOTHING else. After a week of meds the pain came right back and it was just as bad. He gave me more steroids. Another Dr who is a friend recommended me to go see these guys. OMG! In 3 days, with 3 adjustments and treatment from Dr. Russ, and 3 deep tissue massages from Britni, I am 100% back and cured. I plan on going there in a preventative basis as it is such goodness and wellness for your body, especially if you run or play tennis like me regularly. If you have upper back, lower back, or neck problems, don't just sit on it or just keep taking meds. Go see these guys if you want to get well!! THEY ARE THE BEST I HAVE  EXPERIENCED!

 Chronic Hip Pain:

I had chronic hip pain on and off in severity for serveral years. It was recommended that my only real course of action was cortisone injections and possibly a hip replacement. I wanted neither so decided to try and live with the pain. As the pain became more intolerable a friend recommended I visit Dr. Jepson at Austin Sports and Wellness. So thankful I did. Dr Jepson did a through examination, listened to my concerns and worked up a treatment plan for me that included a combination of adjustments, ultrasounds, exercise and massage therapy. He explained everything to me clearly and intelligently. His staff of therapists are absolutely excellent, caring, and attentive. The office itself is immaculate, well run (I was never kept waiting for an appointment) friendly and very professional. I wholeheartedly recommend Austin Sports and Wellness. Dr Jepson listens carefully to his patients concerns, explains a treatment protocol in an intelligent and through manner and then with the assistance of his amazing staff implements the treatment. I am thrilled to be pain free and am so grateful to Dr. Jepson and his amazing staff.

Child Back Pain:

Our child was a patient at Austin Sports and Wellness. We found the Dr. and his team to be very professional, caring and knowledgeable. The treatments were excellent, comprehensive and targeted. We were very pleased and satisfied with the outcome of the recovery.We would highly recommend this clinic for any of their services. 

Robert D, Bee Cave TX


Dr. Jepson and his staff are truly extraordinary!  After years of doctors appointments, pt, steroid shots, etc...  I found the best place and finally made progress after years of pain in my neck, shoulders, and hips.  Dr. Jepson's bedside manner and compassion for his patients is second to none.  The entire staff goes out of their way to help their patients reach their wellness goals.  He also took care of my 3 girls at a young age over the last few years. I remember going in one time as my 3 year old got her elbow joint misaigned "nurse-maides elbow" as it was stuck. She was in extreme pain and would not let anyone touch it. She held it so close to her body I could not even get a good look at it. Dr. Jepson  knew what to do and fixed it in 2 mins! Thank you!!! We are so sosad to be moving out of state. We will not find another place like this.

Finger Pain/Tendonitis:

I have had "trigger finger" (swollen tendons/joint) from a "mouse" arm for a year. I am not able to bend my finger. If I do it locks up and snaps. I visited an orthopedist who gave an injection that lasted ~3 months, and the next step was surgery. I am relieved to have found Dr. Jepson and his team as my trigger finger is now resolved after a comprehensive treatment of laser, ultrasound, massage, stim, and ice of not only the finger/joint, but also the arm, and tendons the entire way through the neck. The chiropractic alignements provide the ultimate balancing touch to relieve my stress in the upper back and neck on the same side as my finger pain. Maybe there is a correlation? My pain is reolved and the motion in my finger is back, thanks to Dr. Jepson's intervention No surgery for me!

Chronic Back Pain and Muscle Tightness:

Well, they did it.  These guys have pushed me over the edge from four stars to five.  A couple of days after I posted my 4 star review on yelp of Dr. Jepson  and his staff.  Now after having had a massage with a second therapist, Brittne, I am convinced.  This first hand knowledge that BOTH of the therapists are awesome, as well as his ability that day to help gain some movement in my deeply locked up lower back after I underwent injections (elsewhere) to relieve the inflammation did the trick.  Although it was a baby step in actual movement of the vertabrae this felt monumental in the history of my spine care.  I've NEVER had any movement in the area of my L5-S1 spondylolisthesis.  And now I have thanks to Dr. J's gentle persistence.

These guys have also made self-care cool enough that my teenaged son isn't grumbling about weekly visits.  We became concerned about his pain after years of trombone playing.  He now proudly shows off his taped up back after his visit. Okay, so I'm a huge fan!

21 Day Purification Program

I just finished a successfull 21 day plan through Dr. Russ. It worked! It stimulated, it strengthened, it cleansed and envigorated. Through the years, I have tried many detoxing plans due to being diagnosed with mercury poisoning in 2005. The recurring "take home" gifts I still have from that episode in my life needed to be addressed. So, I sought out Dr. Jepson for his help. He suggested The Standard Process Purification plan for 21 days. We modified the plan just a little bit to accommodate a smaller intake of herbs and extended the plan over a 30 day period. I am happy to say that the plan was magnificent compared to many others. It was strong enough to handle a detoxing pro with hefty goals and it was mild enough to completely satisfy a first time detoxer....all with eating healthy foods in combination. The mental clarity alone was a huge benefit that provided me with hope and happiness. The symptoms I was having either  greatly decreased or vanished all together, and of course the pounds shed were a plus. I have decided to do the program as much as 3 times a year to maintain this heightened state of being. I highly recommend Dr. Russ and his detox plan to everyone.

Mid Back Pain and Shoulder Pain

Dr.  Russ Jepson and staff are providing an excellent service to the Lakeway Austin area with their new clinic. Dr Jepson is a terrific clinician who listens exceptionally well to patient complaints/symptoms and with a thorough diagnosis gets to the root cause of the problem quickly. His various  treatment modalities are highly effective means to improve musculo-skeletal  health including acute and chronic conditions. I'm feeling much better in the traps/rhomboid area and look forward to an active summer with lots of tennis.

Frozen Shoulder/Neck Pain

Amazing Results!! I recently suffered from frozen shoulder due to calcifications on my tendons. The orthopedic surgeon gave me a cortisone shot and said I'd just have to live with a little pain, some loss of motion and arm fatigue. I then began to have severe neck stiffness and pain. After seeing what Dr. Russ did for my son's back, I decided to see if he could help me. What a difference! I have seen such an improvement in just a couple weeks that I have hope that my arm and neck will make a full recovery. The whole staff at Integrated Sports and Wellness is amazing.

"My wife and I signed up for the Standard Process 21-day Cleanse with much hesitation.  I am not a fan of vegetables and am also pretty skeptical about the various claims being made by the makers of cleanse products on the market today.  After many discussions with a friend who went through the program and talking with Dr. Russ, I decided to go for it and my wife did as well.  I must say that I was blown away by the results!  I felt noticeably better within just a few days of starting the cleanse and by the end of the 21 days, I felt fantastic!  I have struggled with various digestive issues for years and have tried everything out there to try and crack the code to my digestive health all to no avail.  Not only did the cleanse work immediately, it also introduced me to a whole new way of eating and analyzing the foods that I put into my body on a regular basis.  I am still not a huge fan of veggies, but at least I no longer fear them!  More importantly, I still feel great several months after completing the cleanse!"

Severe Hip Pain:

I was suffering for years from extreme hip pain triggered by a very tight IT-band. I also have suffered from low back pain.Since coming here my overall health and attitude has improved dramatically!! I have had chiropractic, physical therapy, and massage therapy sessions here. Our family has all begun treatment as well, mostly related to sports injuries. Dr. Russ Jepson gave our 9th grade son a baseline concussion screening test to monitor him throughout his football career. I highly recommend this tremendous facility!

Standard Process Purification Program:

My husband and I did the 21 detox a few months ago.  We planned it around a time when we knew there would be no major events or holidays to decrease the temptation  of eating or drinking things we should not.  It was kind of scary at first to go from carnivores to vegan gluten-free.  I bought a few vegan gluten free cookbooks because I like to cook.  My husband, Dave, said this was an excuse to buy more cookbooks!  The recipes from Standard Process combined with the ones I found made every day a fun adventure.  I learned that I love Brussels sprouts roasted in the oven.  It was the first time I had eaten them and now have them in our meal rotations.  Who knew? Dave was also surprised to see how many ways I could prepare veggies and have them taste completely different each time.  Dr. Jepson and his office gave me good tips in meal and shake preparation, too.  We have a favorite shake combo that we now crave and keep all the ingredients on hand for breakfast or an afternoon snack.   The number of supplements was a big change too.  That's just something we adjusted to and it helped us drink more water everyday so that's a good thing.  Dave and I are not body builders or vegetarians.  We are normal people that wanted to feel better.  The Standard Process regimen helped me lose 10 lbs and Dave 9 lbs but it also gave us more energy.   I will probably give it another go next year.

Standard Process Purification Program:

This was the first detox program that I've done and the results were amazing. My intentions going into it were not to loose weight but to simply cleanse my system and get a fresh start, so to speak. I was pleasantly surprised because I experienced many things; weight loss, cleansing of my system, more energy, better skin, clearer mind and more knowledge to pass on about health and nutrition. I am not a coach of fitness but I do have a fair amount of knowledge about fitness and nutrition and enjoy sharing it and training others. After completing the first cleanse, I have decided to do one every six months, therefore I will be starting the second in 2 weeks. If your not very knowledgeable about nutrition or how your bodies system works or fitness, etc., do not let this scare you into thinking that you cannot do this, the Standard Process Purification Program spells everything out for you and explains in detail exactly what you are supposed to be eating and supplements that your supposed to be taking at the exact times of the day. IT'S SIMPLE! The number one thing that I hear when I interact and try to help someone reach their nutrition goals is, I don't have time or I don't think I can do it. I always tell them that you need something SIMPLE. Make it easy on yourself to achieve your goals by preparing ahead of time. This is what Standard Process does with this program, they make it simple and have everything already prepared for you by noting your exact supplements and food that you should and should not be consuming. SIMPLICITY rocks! This program is a must! I must also add that not only does Standard Process provide you with an awesome program to easily follow, but you will also have PLENTY of help from Dr. Russ Jepson as well. It takes about 30 seconds of conversation to see how much he believes in this program. As consumers, we must admit that we'd rather buy something or try something from someone who really believes in their product, a product that they have tried and experienced themselves. This, Dr. Jepson does! Thank you Doctor!

Migraine Heachaches:

I have been suffering with migraine headaches for 18 years.  I have gone to many neurologist and naturopathic doctors with no relief.  What a blessing it was to find Dr. Russ at Integrative Sports and Wellness.  Honestly, I was doubtful after this many years of migraines.  Dr. Russ recommended a treatment plan for approximately 2-3 months and I saw a noticeable difference within several weeks and the headaches were less frequent and the severity is no longer an issue.  The treatment really surprised me because it was very effective, very easy to do, and I am now more functional.  Most importantly, I am able to work the way I need to and I certainly feel a lot better so I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Russ and his very caring staff at Integrative Sports and Wellness.

Neck and Low Back Pain:

I started seeing Dr. Russ because my last chiropractor only adjusted my neck. Dr. Russ and his staff us other types of modalities to treat the whole person including excercises, massage, pilates and supplements which have all helped immensly in treating my neck & back pain. I highly recommend Dr. Russ if you want to start feeling better!

Detoxification Cleanse!:

The results that I have gotten from Integrative Sports and Wellness Standard Process Detox program have been life changing! I have lost 15 lbs in 3 weeks! I now know what is good for me to eat. I eat less bread now and my body is lighter as a result. This program helped inspire me to continue to watch what I eat in order to lose more weight. My energy has increased tremendously. Before the cleanse I felt lethargic. My energy was low and I felt like I wanted to take a nap around 3:00pm every day. My energy is up and even when I have a long day I still have energy. Also, my digestion is so much better. I have learned to pay attention when I eat something that bothers my digestion and I remove it from my diet. During and after this program my body feels a lot cleaner. I definitely felt that I had a lot of support working with the the staff at ISWMC.

Plantar Fascitis:

I had been suffering from plantar fascitis for more than 12 years. After seeing a podiatrist for 1.5 years, I was running out of options. I did not want surgery as I felt it was a last resort. My wife suggested a Chiropractor may help. I contacted Dr. Russ Jepson and with in a few months my pain was gone!! Now I am very grateful for what he has done for me. I can now walk without pain!

Greg McLemore  Austin, TX

Neck Pain and Spasms:

Once I started going to Dr. Russ I wanted to become a voice piece to promote this practice. It really helped me! I had a (non-cancerous) brain tumor at age 23 removed that left a thick 4" scar on the back of my neck. Three years ago I started getting spasms in my neck to the point where just looking up towards the sky caused me to experience pain and even while driving for more than 2 hours. My wife and I had met Dr. Russ at a Fair during a promotional offer...it was the real deal! He not only found the source of my discomfort that for so long had been ignored and had me believing I had to live with this the rest of my life. With treatments and close monitoring I can now enjoy the outdoors again. I have regained full range of motion of my neck and the pain was alleviated. My wife also continued seeing him and her headaches were wiped out. Thanks Dr. Russ.
