Thoughts From our Clients

  • 5 star review  I have seen David for three separate injuries over a span of 18 months. First was for my meniscus, which I had an MRI prior, and he fixed me with dry needling and PT. I have high anxiety when it comes to needles but he made it literally painless and very effective. My second injury was a reoccurring back/disc issue. I was in the cusp of back surgery, which from past experience with chiropractic appts, I wanted surgery and thought I needed surgery, but I went and saw him first (with an MRI in hand) and he saved me from surgery with stretching, exercises, and dry needling. My third injury was another injury to my same knee. I didn’t want to get ANOTHER MRI, so he did an assessment, figured out what was needed, and did dry needling, PT, weighted exercises, and fixed me, yet again. He was always available, as I threw my back out on a Sunday morning and he saw me immediately and saved me from a weekend of pain and discomfort. He listens and understands everything I tell him. I would recommend him 100% to anyone needing any sort of PT. His office is 30+ mins from my house but I go to him for his expertise, his availability, his professionalism, and his kindness.

    5 star review  Very pleased after my initial assessment! Dave is knowledgeable and passionate about his craft and his office is clean and inviting. He listened to my concerns and clearly explained treatment techniques which helped dispel my anxiety (dry needling sounds scary but its not bad, I promise!). I have severe muscle pain and nerve damage from an old spinal fusion which makes treatment a little complex but Dave had no problem tailoring a plan to work around those particular obstacles. After one session I am already seeing positive results and I am so grateful to be moving past pain I thought was a permanent fixture in my life. I cannot recommend him enough!

  • 5 star review  I have been working with Dave for a couple months now, trying to get some more hip flexibility for my golf game. Over the course of my treatment, he has helped me not only with my hips but also my neck, shoulders and back. He is very knowledgeable and quick to pinpoint areas to address. He really takes the time to listen. He is so enthusiastic and passionate about his work and you can tell that he genuinely wants to help you get better. I have also worked with Jessica for a few years which is how I learned about Dave . She is also the best, so caring and all around great person I would not hesitate to recommend Jessica or Dave for your PT needs!

    5 star review  All the ⭐️s for Chardon PT! Excellent experience! Everyone is very knowledgeable and professional while still maintaining a friendly and comfortable environment. I first started seeing Jess for hamstring pain. Jess took her time in my evaluation to determine the root issue and develop a comprehensive care plan. My care plan included dry needling, massage, pilates and at home exercises. Jess even took the time to evaluate my movement to avoid any further injury. In 3 months time I no longer had pain! I wish my PT story ended there but I was involved in a car accident which resulted in a pinched nerve. I was fortunate to know Jess and she quickly got me in for an appointment to evaluate the injury and set up a new care plan. When I first started seeing Jess for the pinched nerve I had numbness down my arm and into my finger tips. I was in extreme pain - crying sometimes it hurt so bad! With massage, dry needling, and home workouts I no longer have numbness in my fingers. We are continuing to work on elevating the pain and numbness in my arm. I couldn’t be happier with my progress. Jess is an absolute joy to see. She is unbelievably smart- always keeping update on new techniques. Jess is also a certified yoga instructor and uses that knowledge in her PT practice. Look no further for you PT needs!! Chardon PT and Jess are the best!

  • 5 star review  Dave Nelson is fantastic! Went in with a shoulder issue. Doc pinned the problems on mobility limits in my upper spine. A few manual treatments, exercises at home and the shoulders feel better than ever!! If you’re a golfer, he’s your man. TPI certified and ready to help get your body into position for a better day on the course!! You won’t be disappointed! Thanks Dave!!

    5 star review  Who knew being pulled, prodded and poked would make you feel better. More importantly, David is guiding me to take better care of myself. He is quite knowledgeable and working with him is a pleasure. I highly recommend his therapy service.
