I, Col. Bob Waller (age 80), have been in excellent shape the majority of my life. I have played college and military football and have been an active athlete. As I have aged, arthritis has attacked my body leaving me to the point I could barely walk due to severe low back, hip, knee, and ankle pain. I have been advised surgery is the option for me to get better, but I chose another route. I was referred to Advantage Physical Therapy to try conservative treatment. I have been doing aquatic therapy 3x/ week including walking on their underwater treadmill, and this group of therapists have made more of a positive impact on my mobility, pain levels, and general function than any place I have ever been. They have kept me out of surgery and I attribute my longevity and improved life quality to Ron, Estee, Christy, and the staff at Advantage. I know my arthritis is not going to improve, but they keep me moving and feeling younger than when I first began therapy here. I believe I owe my ongoing mobility, energy levels, and overall positive health to the staff at Advantage Physical Therapy, and I highly recommend them to everyone I know suffering from debilitation arthritis, balance issues, general weakness, and debility. Thank you all so much for keeping an old Army Colonel feeling younger and more active!
