Kim Nartker Owner/Founder PTA
Kim's Story: Hi I am Kim and the founder/Owner of Stretch. I have worked in the field of PT for over 18+ years now. I opened Stretch to bridge the gap in our current healthcare system. I found that many of my clients were struggling to find honest care that was results driven, and that did not focus on exercise alone. I have always felt that manual therapy was a BIG part of helping the body heal. So in 2013, after doing my research on a good area for my first location, I opened my West Chester Location. I am very passionate about teaching my techniques and mentoring other PT/PTA’s treatment techniques that have worked for me over the years. In the clinic I am the lead PTA and perform all of the physical therapy treatments, wellness services and Post PT maintenance care.
