Dr. Nick Petrucci
  • Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Loma Linda University
  • Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS)
  • Completed the Advanced Functional Biomechanics of the Lower Quarter: Integration of Technology into Practice (Instructed by Dr. Christopher Powers, PT, PhD, FACSM, FAPTA)

Nick has a particular interest in athletics with an extensive sports background. In 2011, he was inducted into the Hall of Fame at Northern Arizona University as a two-time All-American Football Defensive End and two-time All-American Track and Field Athlete (Discus). Nick pursued a professional career as a discus thrower and was a member of three U.S.A. Track and Field National Teams. He lived and trained for several years with some of the world’s best athletes and coaches at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, CA.
Nick suffered several traumatic injuries throughout his athletic career and attributes his experiences to leading him into a career in physical therapy having been on the other side so frequently. “If only I knew then what I know now!” “I believe proper mechanics during daily movements, especially sports specific movements, are critical in eliminating future injury and enhances performance.”

I am motivated to be part of Institute for Precision in Movement that strives to deliver optimal mechanics through education, manual therapy, and sports specific speed/strength/coordination training.
