Dr. Nick Hamlin, PT, DPT is a 2006 graduate of CMU where he attained a bachelor of science in health fitness in preventative and rehabilitative programs with a minor in nutrition studies. He pursued further education and received his doctorate in physical therapy in 2010. Nick has been heavily engaged in outpatient orthopedic practice since that time. He has been influential in starting several outpatient physical therapy companies in the past six years.
In January 2016, Nick opened the doors to Midland Physical Therapy Sports Rehab alongside his colleagues at Midland Chiropractic Sports Rehab. His particular areas of interest in treatment are shoulder pathologies and pain as well as the treatment of acute and chronic low back pain.
He has received further education and training in functional/trigger point dry needling, Graston Technique, manual therapy techniques for the management of low back pain through NAIOMT, cervical pain through the Institute of Clinical Excellence, shoulder pain and dysfunctions, and applied functional science through the Gray Institute.
One of the highlights of Nick’s career so far has been being invited to the United States Olympic Training Center in New York in the Winter of 2017, where he worked with U.S. Olympic Bobsled, Luge, Skeleton, Biathlon, Freestyle Aerial Skiing and Rhythmic Gymnastics teams.
Nick’s personal interests include spending time with his fiancee and their two dogs. Hobbies include just about any outdoor activity they can do together, such as skiing, biking, weight training, kayaking, camping, snowboarding, snowshoeing and playing hockey. He also runs a little bit but somewhat despises it.

When can physical therapy help?
Physical therapy can help you recover from an injury and avoid future injury. Your physical therapist can help you reduce pain in the soft tissues (muscles, tendons, and ligaments), build muscle strength, and improve flexibility, function, and range of motion. He or she can also evaluate how you do an activity and make suggestions for doing the activity in a way that is less likely to result in an injury.
Physical therapy and chronic health conditions
Physical therapy can help you live more easily with chronic or ongoing health conditions such as spinal stenosis, arthritis, and Parkinson’s disease. Your physical therapist will work with you to establish your goals. Then he or she will create a program of educational, range-of-motion, strengthening, and endurance activities to meet your needs.
Physical therapy and health conditions requiring a rehabilitation team approach
Some conditions involve several body systems and can lead to significant disability. These conditions-such as stroke, spinal cord injury, and major cardiopulmonary (heart and lung) problems-are usually addressed by a team of health professionals through programs such as cardiac rehab and stroke rehab. The team can include doctors; nurses; physical, occupational, and speech therapists; psychologists; and social workers, among others.
Physical therapists are a critical part of this team. They address the issues of range of motion, strength, endurance, mobility (walking, going up and down stairs, getting in and out of a bed or chair), and safety. The physical therapist may also get you the equipment you need, such as a walker or wheelchair, and make sure you can use the equipment appropriately.
Physical therapy and significant health conditions of childhood
Physical therapists also work with children who have major injuries or health conditions, such as cerebral palsy. They address the usual issues of range of motion, strength, endurance, and mobility. Also, the therapist considers the child’s special growth and developmental needs.
Treatment is often provided in the school or in a facility just for children. The way physical therapy and other services are delivered in the schools varies among the states. Talk to your child’s doctor, school, or your local health department if you think your child may qualify for evaluation or treatment services.
