Nate Hamilton, PT, DPT, OCS, MTC, CSCS Physical Therapist
I was born and raised in sunny Las Vegas, Nevada. My mother’s side of the family is from Grand Island, Nebraska resulting in many memorable trips and ultimately my decision to go to Creighton University for my Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science (2009). Right after graduating, I earned the designation of Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) from the National Strength and Conditioning Association. In 2014 I earned my Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) from Regis University in Denver, Colorado. In 2016 I earned my Manual Therapy Certificate (MTC) from Evidence in Motion and am now working towards becoming a Fellow in the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapists (FAAOMPT). I primarily treat individuals across the age spectrum with muscle/joint problems including those who are recovering from injury, slow onset problems, and post-surgical.
Why Physical Therapy?
Physical therapists (PT) are experts in the way the body moves. They are an integral part of your care team at Think and work side by side with your doctor. Our Doctors of Physical Therapy use scientifically-based techniques to improve pain and function and prevent injury or disability, so that you can get moving at your personal best.
If you are looking for an alternative to surgery, pain medication, or if you notice changes in your strength, balance or walking ability, consider physical therapy.
PTs help restore motion, strength and endurance to improve your overall function and quality of life.
Some of the Conditions We Treat
Your PT will develop a treatment program for your individual needs and goals.Treatment may emphasize pain reduction, strengthening, flexibility, postural alignment, balance, gait and endurance training to manage movement problems associated with:
- Orthopedic conditions (like acute or chronic pain from arthritis, injury, or surgery)
- Neurological conditions (such as stroke, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis)
- Cardiac or pulmonary conditions (heart attack, bypass surgery or COPD)
What can you expect from a Physical Therapist?
After careful examination, your PT will combine science with inspiration to teach you how to prevent or manage a health condition and help motivate you during your treatment so you can function optimally. Your PT will help you understand your body so you will achieve long-term health benefits.
