Meet Nate Pierce
Nathan graduated from Binghamton University with a Bachelors in Cell and Molecular Biology in 2007. He attended Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, NY and received his Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2010.
Nathan blends both movement based and biomechanical based assessments to arrive at the area(s) of pain and/or dysfunction. He utilizes his certification in the SFMA/FMS to achieve that goal. Nathan feels that an interdependent approach to body mechanics assess functional movement is an efficient and optimal way to regain pre-injury function and improve healthy lifestyle. He has also been trained in Trigger Point Dry Needling and is an advocate of restoring soft tissue mobility in his treatment approach.
Prior to joining Bodies in Motion Physical Therapy, Nate worked in South Texas as well as Washington, DC for National Rehabilitation Hospital, treating a diverse population and conditions including orthopedics and wound care. Nate believes in continuing education and the advancement of his profession through education/training and research.
He uses the FMS to screen for risk of injury prior to initiating sport/exercise, and feels that if you are considering initiating a training/exercise program you should know where your weakest link/dysfunctions lie and whether you are at increased risk for injury prior to starting training. Nate screens for these issues.
