I recently had my knee replaced and Julie at Strive Nature Coast Rehab. in Williston helped me get back on my feet! She... was wonderful - mindful of my pain tolerance but worked me hard in a consistent variety of exercises. I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel thanks to her!read more

Both my wife and I have been a patient at Nature Coast Rehabilitation in Williston, Fl. 32696. Recently, the business... was purchased by a company named STRIVE Health & Rehabilitation. The new business has two other STRIVE businesses in Ocala FL.Since the change of ownership my lovely wife was in need of therapy once again. Gale visited the new ownership STRIVE and instantly recognized some of the staff that was with Nature Coast. In the past five visits these great professionals have been able to help my wife walk easier, breath easier and for the most part greatly reducing the dependency for the use of a cane.Their safety concerns due to the covid-19 situation is first in their minds when it comes to sanitizing the equipment. Patients must wash their hands prior to their visit. Every patient before entering the Therapy Area must wash their hands and have their temperature checked. Each of the staff does an excellent job at maintaining the cleaning protocol's set in place in order to provide every patient as well as the staff's safety.read more
