I highly recommend Nestor Physical Therapy. For the past five years I have had significant contractures in both knees due to severe osteoarthritis. I had been told by my orthopedic surgeon and two previous physical therapists that even with physical therapy and months of exercising, I would be lucky to get 5 degrees of range of motion back in my knees. I had surgery to fuse two bones in my left foot and was in a cast for 6 weeks. Once the cast came off, my surgeon ordered physical therapy. I was barely able to stand and had lost a lot of muscle tone and strength. At the recommendation of a friend, I began therapy at Nestor Physical Therapy. Steven Nestor began helping me to do strengthening exercises as well as stretching exercises. He is extremely knowledgeable and very caring. Steve worked diligently with me and I progressed to ambulating with a walker and then a cane. By the end of my therapy, not only was I walking independently, but I had gained 20 degrees of range of motion in my left knee and 15 in my right. For the first time in many years I am walking straight and tall, and I have Steven Nestor to thank for that!
