Nikki has been an orthopedic physical therapist for 14 years and developed a special interest in mechanical disorders of the spine, obtaining her diplomat status in Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT) from the McKenzie Institute in 2013. MDT is a highly researched assessment process that will identify the best treatment for all musculoskeletal problems using patient education, advanced hands on techniques and patient specific exercise. Treatment plans are effective and efficient; designed to eliminate symptoms, restore full function and prevent recurrence. Nikki loves to empower patients with the skills and knowledge to take control of their own symptom management. Outside of work, she enjoys swimming with the US Masters Team and spending time with her family.
