Before treatment I felt lousy! The therapy Nick provided was definitely directed to Covid rehab and regaining strength and stamina. The exercise regimen was innovative and easy to do. I can do some simple chores now without any pain and I am not so tired, however, I know my limits. I need to continue with exercises consistently which is sometimes difficult but necessary. Nick does a good job in tailoring the therapy to fit the specific needs of the patient. This is very important.

Before treatment I was unsure of my footing sometimes. Now I feel more confident and know what exercises I can do at home. Nick came to my home. This greatly removed my anxiety with the pandemic and nasty weather. I am using weights again and have doubled the time on my exercise bike. I would recommend Nick highly. He also took care of the billing to Medicare.
Due to nerve damage I have suffered from numbness and neuropathy in my right foot for several years, this has caused a lot of pain and has limited my mobility. Nick is the first person that really listened to my issues and offered any help. With several PT exercises and things to do on my own, helped control the pain and improve my balance.
He was always encouraging and positive with my progress. He has a lot of knowledge in general health and is always willing to share it. Using the in home PT has helped me to do exercises on my own. I can now manage the curbs on the street with my cane and I feel safer. It has given me confidence with my walking because of better balance. Having in home therapy was a great help to me because I'm not able to drive. It would have been difficult for me to get out of the house for PT. I'm very grateful to Nick for his help, his kindness and encouragement. He has been a blessing to me. Thank you, Nick.
Nick’s write up in the Grand Island Independent was definitely an answer to my prayers. The last months I could feel my mobility slipping away. I tried to remain active and push myself to walk and do yard work but found myself using the walker more and more. I had such an awful pain in the glute muscle area that prevented me from sleeping, sitting, standing and bending. I was going for chiropractic treatment but only helped for a couple days. It was such a helpless feeling. I had a large tree branch fall on my head a few months earlier and was told it will just take time to heal.
I called Nick. He came out the next day and did an evaluation and reassured me that he could help. After a few sessions I was feeling stronger and had less pain. He showed me things I could do in my home daily just using what I had - no special equipment. Each week I feel stronger and can even walk a short distance without the walker or cane.
I am hopeful this garden season I will be planting and enjoying nature as I walk around my yard. It is a blessing to have someone bring this service to the home - no more waiting on rides. Nick is very dedicated in his work. THANK YOU NICK!

Since my treatment with Nick, I feel that both of my legs are stronger and less painful. Before therapy, I used my walker all the time, but now I feel more confident in using my cane. I have much more strength in my legs. We also worked on balance. I feel that has improved. I feel Nick is very kind and patient. He is very knowledgeable in his profession. Since I do not drive, the convenience of him coming to my home was a great help to me and my family. Nick goes above and beyond to help his patients.

I had pain in my hip and thigh from sciatica and arthritis. I had 6 weeks of therapy with Nick and it helped a lot. I grew stronger with each treatment. I also feel stronger and my balance keeps improving. I can lift much heavier weights and have more strength all over.

I was not the patient, my husband was. A difficult patient. Can't say enough good things about Nick. He was so patient and always paid Gwyer a compliment with what he achieved. Gwyer was hardly walking when we started. Now he is walking with a cane and getting around so much better. Nick was always on time. He left us some things we can work on here at home. Felt blessed the short time we had him. Thanks, Nick.

Ever since Nick came to start the program, I've been able to get up out of my chair and do a few strengthening exercises which I needed really back because I have pain in both hips and the lower back I have arthritis of the spine. So he is doing some strengthening exercises with me which is very good. I've enjoyed him very much and I just want to continue to have him come as long as I can because I need that especially in the winter time when I'm not getting outside. I'm not doing the water exercises now and it's so easy just to sit down. So thank you, Nick, very much.

Before seeing Nick, I was weak and couldn't walk without the help of a walker and I had no confidence. Physical therapy makes me work hard and build my muscles. Nick gave me exercises I didn't think I could do. In the past other therapies had me doing things I knew I could do like cooking and housework. Now I know I can walk by myself. I don't use a walker in the house anymore. I do use a walker outside but at times I am able to walk without one if I am not going very far. I feel as my confidence builds, I will do much better.
- Delavon Herrold
It's great that Nick comes to my house as I wouldn't be able to go to the clinic in town. I'm getting better and wouldn't be able to do anything if he didn't come and have me do it. I try to do some things during the time he's not here, but it's not like when he comes. He makes me do a lot more.
- Jackie Chitty
I have been to several physical therapists in Grand Island and never seemed to improve much. I have had pain in my legs for several years and never seemed to know why.
Nick asked me lots of questions about my pain and helped to find therapy that has made me feel better.
He has worked much harder than others seemed to. They all did the same things which were not much help.
I am much stronger since working with Nick and I do not hurt near as much. He really tries hard to help each person.
- Donna Moss
Nick has been very good and has helped me be able to stay home. I can do a lot more now than before.
- Lamae Stoltenberg
It is very convenient for me that Nick comes to my house to do therapy with me. I have not felt safe to use a cane for a long time but as I work with Nick, I am starting to use a cane again and I am able to get around the house easier and feel more steady on my feet.
I am also able to walk further down the sidewalk to be able to visit friends. Even my neighbors have noticed how much better I can get around.
I am excited to make further improvements as I continue to work with Nick.

I have struggled with foot pain for years, I am very active and on my feet all day and would be miserable at the end of the day. I had invested a lot of money over the years in shoes and orthotics. I had tried everything.
Nick did an evaluation and was very thorough and provided a treatment plan. Now I am finally pain-free!
In the big picture, I have saved a lot of money and my feet feel great!
Highly recommend Rech Physio!

Nick is very caring, compassionate and knowledgeable in both physical therapy and nutrition. My husband is a cancer patient and he helped him with his back pain as well as a healthy food plan. Highly Recommended!

Being a landscaper, I've had back issues on and off since I started, even though I'm not very old, and now sitting at a desk most of the day has created new problems. I would wake up and be able to barely move. Nick gave me some simple tips/exercises that I could do at my desk every day and other things to help me at night. I've been doing what he's told me for about a month and it's made a tremendous difference. I have fewer mornings where I wake up in pain, and I can sit for longer periods of time without getting uncomfortable. Thanks, Nick!

I had terrible foot pain and went to Nick and asked him for help. He gave me some stretches to do and put a lift in my shoes. Thanks to him for all his help. I can get through a 12 hour day now without my heel hurting!
- Mandy Dimmitt
I have been having hip pain (forever) and some lower back pain (recently). I would need to pop my hips 3-4 times a day and most definitely before I could fall asleep; and even then, the discomfort would wake me up in the middle of the night forcing me to roll over to the other side to sleep, and then that process would repeat itself multiple times throughout the night. After explaining everything to NIck, he gave me multiple exercises to do--all very simple and easy to do. Now I very rarely have any pain or discomfort in my hips, and I don't wake up in the night from a "soreness" in my hips which allows me to sleep so much better. Overall, it was such a great experience--I would HIGHLY recommend Rech Physio.

I went to physical therapy because I was having lower back pain I was 16 weeks pregnant when I started physical therapy. Nick was very friendly and caring listening to me explain where I was hurting etc. I was taught several stretches and exercises to help my back pain. I did telehealth PT sessions where I could do the physical therapy from home, it was so great because I also have a four-year-old and she could just play in our living room, while I did my therapy. After doing physical therapy my back pain has improved so much and I can finally really start to enjoy my pregnancy without being in pain!

As someone that sits by a computer most of the day, I started to have some lower back issues. Nick guided me through some exercises, and after about a week or so of doing them, I definitely felt a noticeable difference in my lower back.

A few years ago I injured my shoulder while playing slow pitch softball. The injury made it uncomfortable to throw and swing a bat while playing. I played with the discomfort for almost a year before consulting with Dr. Rech. He was very thorough in his process to find out as much and he could about my injury and how it had been affecting me. He gave me several exercises that were easy to perform at home. After just a month or two of performing the exercises, I was feeling much less discomfort and was throwing and swinging more strongly. Thank you, Dr. Rech!
- Elliot (telehealth)
Started a new lifting program to where I was having shoulder pain anytime I needed to raise my arm. Nick gave me a couple of positions to do so he could figure out what was wrong with me. Ended up being one single tendon! So specific. He then gave me stretches to do that I now do before every workout and my pain has significantly been reduced and am able to enjoy my workouts like normal. He was quick and did a great job educating me on what to do.

I started seeing Dr.Rech for a sciatic nerve issue. With a very physical job, it was very painful to go to work every day let alone get through the daily routine. We started with simple, effective, and easy to do stretches throughout the day to relieve pain and pressure. Within days I was feeling better, and after a few weeks back to my normal self. I highly recommend his services and appreciate what he has done for me.
