"I was referred to Harry Koster by my neurosurgeon David Masel MD. Back in 2005. I had a Severe herniated disk that limited my ability to walk further than ½ mile without burning & Pain sensations going down my legs. At that time my Dr. wanted to see if I could improve with PT. While attending PT with Harry, Harry did physical manipulation while teaching me lifelong skills of proper body mechanics, proper exercise that would strengthen my back & overall body. I did both land & aquatic therapy. My pain level significantly decreased and with the techniques used & learned I was able to walk more than 1 mile with minimal pain. I was so impressed with the professionalism & courteous staff there isn’t another therapy place I recommend. Harry Koster/ Spine & Rehab Specialists are truly the BEST & most ethical in El Paso. I decided to pursue to have a laminectomy/ discectomy surgery about 1 & ½ years after I started PT I was still on medication and my husband and I longed for a child. I was 29 years old and was confident in my neurosurgeon (David Masel MD) & fully confident in my PT (Harry Koster). I had the Surgery, got off my medications and started walking the day of my surgery. I kept hearing my PTs voice reminding me that I have to work thru post-op pain and wasn’t going to damage myself but instead get stronger! I attended PT with Harry for several months after surgery. I was able to walk 5 miles and go thru my day without pain & without medication. I would make my PT land exercises apart of my daily routine so that I would be strong enough for a future baby. God blessed my husband & I with 2 beautiful daughters. I am so thankful & so blessed to have had the best team to help me achieve a happy & pain-free “everyday” life! I truly am so thankful for Spine & Rehab Specialists …. Especially my PT Harry Koster. It’s been 10 years since my surgery and am still pain free & not on any medications. I still continue to see Harry Koster (on & off thru the years) for other health ailments that I’ve encountered. He is the BEST! God Bless Harry Koster & his staff, they are so welcoming, friendly, professional & make you feel at home."
