Who We Help At Gray Duck Physical Therapy 

At Gray Duck, we understand that every single person’s pain is unique, which is why our first step is to get a deep understanding of what is happening to your body, and how it is effecting your life so we can create a plan that focuses on YOU and your goals.

Gray Duck's Proven 3 Step Process


Step 1:

FIND The Real Cause Of Your Pain

We’ll take you through a comprehensive biomechanical assessment and identify the cause of your pain. Then we’ll explain what must be done to get you back to full speed and back to the activities you enjoy.

Step 2:

FIX Your Problem Areas

We’ll develop a personalized physical therapy plan that will be tailored specifically to you and your goals. This will ultimately allow us to get you stronger, pain-free, and on track to reach your goals more effectively and efficiently.

Step 3:

FOREVER At Peak Performance​

Once you're exercising pain free, we'll implement strategies to get you performing at an even higher level than you were prior to your injury and  to “bulletproof” your body to decrease the likelihood of future injuries occurring.

Jennifer M.  

Wow! What a difference this program has made in my life! I came without hope, in tears, and felt that the sport that brought me joy in playing and coaching was slowly being taken away from me due to reduced mobility and knee pain from osteoarthritis. I had tried physical therapy before, but Dr. Nick definitely has a different approach, and in my opinion, has found a better way. It is not a cookie cutter, one size fits all approach, but more of a wholistic one in treating my whole leg versus just my knee. I am able to run and move without pain and I continue to improve each week. I realized last week that since I started working with Dr. Nick 2 months ago, I have completely stopped taking Advil and Aleve before my activities. Before this program, I had been taking them to relieve pain and inflammation in increasing amounts. I have also completely stopped using my brace. I would highly recommend checking out Gray Duck to regain an active lifestyle that restores joy in your life like I did. Thank you to Dr. Nick and his wife, Ariel, at Gray Duck!

What can I say? Gray Duck Physical Therapy has changed my life. After trying all the main stream orthopedic places I had little hope. Then somebody introduced me to Dr Nick. Excellent professional, dedicated, smart, caring… one that continues to educate himself and isn’t afraid to evolve his practice. A total instrument in Gods hands used in my healing process. Now that I have finished my PT visits I am full of hope again. Hope to achieve goals that seemed impossible. Confidence in what my body CAN do. Joy of being free of pain and completely functional!

Can’t finish this review without also mentioning Ariel. Haven’t met a more candid & kind person! She is a fresh of breath air and the cherry on top of the cake. Together, Dr. Nick and Ariel make the BEST team. I am looking forward to see Gray Duck Physical Therapy growing and changing this world, one physical therapy session at the time. Thank you from the bottom of my heart ❤️
