Chris helped me figure out why my knee was in so much pain, and gave me exercises not only to support my knee while it healed, but to also help counteract the way my body was compensating for my recent limping. I left my first appointment with so much relief because I knew I was in really good hands!read more

I was diagnosed with multiple herniated discs in my neck, requiring fusion surgery through the front of my neck and the insertion of hardware and screws. The pain radiating down my arm was debilitating. I was devastated about the prospect of the surgery and the risks and the chances of future problems from it. I searched for a second opinion. No one was optimistic. Multiple orthopedic surgeons would just wince when they saw my cervical MRI. The only medical professional that showed any optimism was Chris Keating. He took one look at my MRI and said “I’ve seen worse. We can help you.” After just a few visits and some at home exercises, the pain disappeared. Now two years later I am still without pain and fully functional.read more

Dr Nichols has been helping me deal with a chronic internal scarring problem that has been causing me significant discomfort for a number of years now. In our sessions, he has been utilizing dry needling and other myofascial release techniques to help break up adhesions and mobilize the soft tissue around it. His efforts have resulted in significant improvement in my symptoms, much more so than I have achieved from working with countless other conventional PT Practices around the Delaware Valley. Dr Nichols approach to physical therapy has been key for me - his focus on individualized attention with private 1-on-1 sessions is crucial to formulating an effective therapy plan for unusual cases like mine where the most appropriate treatment options are not readily obvious. Besides the considerable knowledge and skill he brings to the table, Dr Nichols is as down-to-earth as they come. He is always approachable and patient, listens well, and has a great sense of humor. If you are not satisfied with the results you've gotten from other Physical Therapy practices where you are forced to compete for your therapist's attention with a bunch of other patients they are seeing at the same time, consider giving Ascend Orthopaedics a try. The undivided attention, expertise and care you get with a physical therapist like Dr Nichols might be exactly what you need.read more
