DPT – Doctor of Physical Therapy
Nikki is an assistant center manager and licensed physical therapist at our Pelvic Rehabilitation Center in Hudsonville. She grew up in Chelsea, Michigan with four (yes, four!) sisters and in case you’re wondering she does cheer for U of M, but she will still treat you if you are a state fan. She received a Bachelor of Arts in Biology from Albion College where she was able to run on both the cross country and track teams, then went on to Grand Valley State University where she earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy.
Nikki views physical therapy as a calling to help people achieve wellness through holistic and function-maximizing interventions, and she loves helping people find creative solutions to live their fullest life. She uses exercise, manual (hands-on) therapy, and strategies to address not just symptoms, but the root cause for pain and dysfunction. She believes that all parts of the body are important and should be treated with honor (1 Cor 12:18-24).
Her main area of specialty is pelvic floor rehabilitation, and she has completed advanced post-doctoral training through the Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute. Nikki treats men and women with pelvic health concerns including bowel, bladder, sexual, and pain concerns. She also addresses contributing impairments in the spine, sacrum, and pelvis using her MDT(McKenzie), orthopedic, and Integrative Dry Needling training. She loves giving people tools to help overcome pelvic floor dysfunction including incorporating yoga and Pilates-based exercises.
Nikki enjoys practicing yoga, caring for her many houseplants, dancing, traveling, snowboarding, swimming, camping, playing cards, and spending time with her dog.
