A Message From Nick Scotto, Owner & Founder of River City Physical Therapy

Dear Frustrated Reader With Lumbar Spinal Stenosis,
If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you are in the right place!
Many people in Jacksonville suffer unnecessarily with lumbar stenosis pain and stiffness because they’re told…
The Truth Is...

“At River City Physical Therapy, We Specialize In Helping People Remain Active, Mobile, and Independent.”

It can be very confusing to decide exactly what you should do if you have lumbar spinal pain and stiffness. You’ve likely heard a lot of options such as…

It’s overwhelming to try to make a decision with all these choices. What will happen if you don’t make the right one?

Most people get stuck trying to make a decision about what to do next. They go days, weeks, months (even years!) without taking action.

When It Comes to Solving Something Serious Like Lumbar Spinal Stenosis…

You must choose the right provider for your health. If you don’t, you could end up getting dangerous surgery (when it was unnecessary) or being dependent on addicting painkillers the rest of your life.

Getting the “least-invasive”, most natural treatment is VITAL to you stopping your Lumbar Spinal Stenosis and keeping it from ever coming back.

To do that, you have to not just treat the pain, but have a provider who is willing to figure out WHY the pain happened in the first place. That’s when you’ll get a PERMANENT solution to your problems.

At River City Physical Therapy we’ve created a 3 step process to get rid of your pain AND make sure it doesn’t come back again.

Step #1 - We Want to Listen to Your Story

Our medical system is frustrating. You wait weeks, sometimes months, for an appointment, only to get to talk to the doctors for 10 minutes before they have to run to the next patient and you’re left sitting there wondering, “What just happened?”

Even most physical therapy clinics operate this way. They’re not attentive, they’re fast-paced, and your therapist doesn’t have time to actually touch where you hurt.

This is why our first step is to listen to your story.

After working with lots of people with lumbar spinal stenosis, we know that no two people are alike. Each person has a different body, a different history, and different types of pain.

That is why our first step is to have an open conversation and time for you to tell your story. That way we get a deep understanding of what’s going on not just with your body, but also how it’s impacting your life.

Step #2 - Find Out WHY Your Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Pain Started

Many people have a diagnosis, or medical term for what’s going on with their body. Maybe their doctor gave it to them, maybe tests showed the diagnosis, or maybe you found it online.

You could have been told that your only choice was to rest, take pills, or get injections.

Sometimes, those things bring temporary relief, but they’re not addressing what CAUSED the problem in the first place.

Every person’s cause of Lumbar Spinal Stenosis pain is different. No one has the exact same problem caused by the exact same thing as another person.

Our goal at River City Physical Therapy is to find that original cause of your pain, so not only does your lumbar spinal stenosis pain go away, it STAYS AWAY!

We understand that you still might be skeptical or unsure if physical therapy is right for you. That’s why we created a Free Discovery Session. (Yes! That means the first session is ON US!)

Our Discovery Sessions are meant specifically for those people who are skeptical, unsure, or have even been let down in the past. During the Discovery Session you’ll find out what’s wrong, how long it’s going to take to fix it, and give you peace of mind that your problem can be fixed naturally!

Step #3 - Get Rid Of The Pain & Keep It From Coming Back

This is when the big transformations occur. We develop a personalized plan that allows you to…

…Get back to exercising without fear of Lumbar spinal Stenosis pain and stiffness coming back
…Be able to enjoy leisure time with family and friends
…Get back to your pre-injury lifestyle you love
….Be able to travel without worrying that your pain and stiffness will hold you back
….Make sure you remain active, mobile and independent into your 60s, 70s, and 80s!

Our best clients are those who are motivated and ready to win back their active lifestyle. (Even if they feel stuck right now!)

Want to know more about our availability and costs before making any commitment to coming in?

You don’t have to sacrifice your active lifestyle over problems that can be fixed.

Sincerely,

DR. NICK SCOTTO

Look Who Else Came to River City Physical Therapy and Left Feeling Happy, Healthy, and More Active...

Christi, Busy Mom, Jacksonville: Overcame back pain.

I came into River City Physical Therapy to see Nick because I had sudden, unexplained pain in my back that was so intense, I could hardly move and sometimes brought me to tears. I chose to see Nick at River City Physical Therapy because I already knew him from Church. Also, he successfully helped my husband get better from an issue he’d been suffering from for years so I was impressed by Nick’s knowledge about the body and how to find and treat problems. I experienced results from Nick’s therapy immediately. I shuffled into his office, stiff as a board and in much pain. I didn’t know what was wrong with me and I was scared I would always suffer from it. With that first visit, I learned the source of my pain and what aggravates it. I was encouraged by his confidence and commitment to getting me better and by the exercises I learned. He saw me for 5 visits and I have been doing his exercises and I am definitely better, confident that I can live my everyday life without pain. I can now stand, walk, sit, and simply function without pain. I was in such pain before that I could not do my everyday necessities. I had pain dressing myself, nursing, sitting in a chair, standing to cook, caring for children, etc. Now I am back doing the things I need to do without the pain I had before.

Mike, Mid 30's, Jacksonville: Overcame back pain.

Dr. Scotto was able to find the main source of my discomfort. Before his initial consultation my back pain kept me from performing my daily activities. During our consultation he asked very specific questions to find the exact source of pain and we immediately started to work on a plan of recovery. The results were almost immediate. I now have regained total confidence in my strength and motion. I fully recommend Dr. Scotto’s services.

Erin, Exercise Enthusiast, Jacksonville: Overcame back pain.

After being in pain for about a year and having already tried a cortisol shot, chiropractic, massage, and other PT I found River City Physical Therapy. My pain was in my back and referred down my leg and kept me from doing normal daily activity as well as the things I love to do. I was immediately impressed by the care I received as I was given a holistic evaluation where I was listened to and my concerns were addressed. As opposed to being one of many patients in the room, I was the only patient during the appointment time and each week the treatment plan was adjusted to meet me where I was. Within just a few weeks I noticed significant improvement allowing me to return to kickboxing, high intensity workouts, and tennis. I would absolutely recommend River City Physical Therapy. The Dr. is competent and professional but also seems to care about his patients. The entire time I was being treated I felt safe, respected, and cared for well. I went in to get better physically but feel that I also was cared for emotionally. I truly cannot say enough good about the care I was given.
