Nick graduated from Adrian College in 2017 with his bachelor’s degree in exercise science before attending Oakland University where he earned his doctorate of physical therapy (DPT) in 2020. Nick also received the 2020 Manual Therapy Excellence Award from Oakland’s DPT program upon graduation. While at Adrian College, he competed on the ACHA D1 Men’s Ice Hockey team serving as team captain during his junior and senior seasons.
As a physical therapist, Nick believes in identifying biomechanical abnormalities within the entirety of the kinetic chain and then correcting them through the utilization of different neuromuscular re-training and manual therapy techniques. Nick has a passion for working with athletes, especially hockey players, runners, and overhead athletes. He also enjoys working with varying spinal, shoulder, and knee pathology. In addition to orthopedic manual therapy, he also has training in selective functional movement assessment (SFMA), blood flow restriction training (BFR), complete rehab of the overhead athlete, and kinesiotaping (rock tape).
Currently, Nick resides in Lake Orion with his wife Erica and mini dachshund Annabelle. He enjoys reading, playing hockey, hiking, checking out local breweries, and spending time with his family.
