  • Very impressed with the level of expertise of Dr. Nate and the other staff. I have dealt with knee pain for years and wanted to avoid surgery. I attended only 1 session per week (they even had even hours!) and was back to walking without pain in 5 weeks! Highly recommend before anyone seriously considers surgery!

  • In only a few sessions, I was able to meet all of my goals. I was educated on how the body works and what I needed to do to stay healthy!

    - Christine L.

  • Five years ago, I had an injury which left me disabled due to back pain. I could not enjoy life. The staff at PROActive sat down with me, listened, and gave me hope. I can now walk through the neighborhood and play with my grandchildren. What a terrific experience!
