What Patients are Saying:
"I have been coming to Spine Nevada since September 2017. After my first visit and several tests, it was clear that I would take a lot more visits and more physical therapy. I didn't like the sound of physical therapy. It wasn't music to my ears by any means. I had spent 12 years in unbearable pain with numerous attempts at physical therapy with none ever being beneficial. So not being thrilled about the thought of physical therapy I went ahead and scheduled my first PT appointment. Well on Tuesday September 19th was my first encounter with Matt my new physical therapist. I have to tell you that had to be one of the best days ever! Matt has been the most knowledgeable and helpful therapists i have ever encountered. I can't imagine going anywhere else. I truly look forward to physical therapy twice a week. Matt and Sam are pretty amazing in my book. I'm doing things now I didn't think I could do again. So thank you so much Spine Nevada. You are truly the definition of exceptional care. I will recommend Spine Nevada to everyone I know. Spine Nevada you rock!"
