I have had a lifestyle change for the better through Kim Nartker and her staff. I started out with Stretch Physical Therapy not being able to walk down stairs, having sciatica pain and numbness running down my right leg and into my foot. My right knee was hurting very much due to arthritis and generally I was a Physical wreck. After a few months all of my pain was reduced by 80% and I could resume most of my physical activities which included Garening, working on rehabbing a 120+ year old church in OTR, working with our work crew at my church in Kenwood and being able to hang with my 5 grandkids. Stretch has been a GODSEND and I am now taking several classes that emphasize stretching, core workouts and balance. Thank you Stretch for helping me to live a more active and normal lifestyle.
Stacey was very knowledgeable in relieving my back pain and in suggesting exercises to strengthen surrounding muscles and minimize future problems. I also recommend Brittany and Nathan in their help with exercises in the gym area.
Just a mere 5 weeks ago, I was evaluated by the Stretch Physical Therapy team and began my treatment. I knew I had a degenerative disc and arthritis and had been experiencing pain daily. It was very difficult to get through a day at work in the pain I was experiencing in my lower back. My other activities were limited by this same pain. I quickly experienced a decrease in the level of pain within the firs 2 weeks in therapy. Now, I am often pain-free and able to enjoy going to Red's games and boating on the lake. I can't believe my improvement and all that I am able to do....and it all was without surgery.
I had sustained a rotar cuff injury back in November wile out of town. When we got home in April I consulted with a doctor and x Rays were taken. Pain was unbearable upon doing many every day tasks and sleeping was impossible. I started Physical Therapy 5 weeks ago and what a difference it has made! I find myself gradually gaining strength and doing things i forgot how to do!
