Absolute Sponsors 2nd Annual Cracker Barrel Sista Strut

Absolute Sponsors 2nd Annual Cracker Barrel Sista Strut

Absolute Injury and Pain Physicians partners with Cracker Barrel in the latter’s second annual Sista Strut event.

Sista Strut is “the largest walk of its kind in the city.” It aims to raise awareness of the increasing risk of breast cancer among African American women—an event that started started in Detroit 17 years ago.

Sista Strut Jacksonville

The 3k walk takes off from the Jacksonvile Landing in downtown Jacksonville.

The radio mogul iHeartMedia has launched Sista Strut in “Milwaukee, St. Louis, Memphis, Nashville, and now, in New Orleans and Jacksonville.”

Sista Strut also aims to:

“…Provide information on community resources. Studies show that African American women are more likely to get breast cancer at a younger age and have a death rate from breast cancer higher than that of Caucasian women of the same age. Sista Strut recognizes the strength of survivors, their family and friends, heightens awareness, promotes early detection and the search for a cure.

  • African American women in the US have a 41% higher death rate from breast cancer than white women.
  • African American women are more likely than white women to be diagnosed with breast cancer before age 40 and are more likely to be diagnosed with larger tumors.
  • Awareness of these issues will help survival rates with earlier diagnoses.”

Deric L. D’Agostino, D.C.
Chiropractic Physician

“The health of a body is in direct proportion to the health of its nervous system. The nervous system controls every cell, tissue and organ in your body, tap into that and “miracles” will most certainly happen!”

Dr. Deric D’Agostino attended the Logan College of Chiropractic and has been helping patients at Absolute Injury and Pain Physicians for the past nine years. Around here we call him “Dr. D.”

Dr. D’Agostino specializes in Koren Specific Technique and in the treatment of injuries resulting from motor vehicle accidents. He is a master of his craft and firmly believes that chiropractic treatment can not only help the body but also the mind. His sense of humor and the personal attention that he provides really puts patients at ease.

Dr. D’Agostino genuinely listens to the patient while working very hard to erase their pain-inducing symptoms. He is always seeking out continuing education and new methodology to add to his care repertoire.

When he is not helping patients find relief, Dr. D’Agostino enjoys training for sprint triathlons, gardening, as well as being an awesome father and husband. You will most likely find him at our Arlington location dawning a huge smile while drinking his homemade juice.
