Nick Nyman –  Physiotherapist

I am passionate about advancing people’s health and function to get the most out of life in every way possible. Whether it’s elite level sport or weekend gardening, I can enable you to achieve and surpass your goals.

I assess the whole body & person to determine the exact cause of pain to ease symptoms and create a plan to prevent recurrence of the problem. I utilise a range of hands on techniques, dry needling, lifestyle advice, exercise rehabilitation and pilates-based treatments to ensure you can get back to what you love as quickly as possible. In 2021 I will be commencing my Masters of Clinical Physiotherapy to further expand my toolbox and ensure that I continue to offer the latest in evidence-based care.

I am an active sportsman and play high level Hockey for UWA hockey club as well as social tennis, lawn bowls, jogging and kiteboarding. I understand the demands of sport and I like to tailor your rehabilitation around your specific sporting needs.

I have been fortunate in my early career to work hand-in-hand with some of Perth’s top orthopaedic surgeons. As a result, I am especially experienced at pre & post-operative rehabilitation, as well as preventative rehabilitation. I love providing second opinions to try to offer solutions for your pain without the need to go under the knife.

Areas of special interest:

  • Pre & post-operative rehabilitation – shoulders, knees, hip
  • Chronic & persistent pain
  • Spinal / back pain
  • Whiplash & headaches
  • Tendon pain – tennis elbow, achilles pain, shoulder pain
  • Sporting injuries – hockey, tennis, running, water sports
  • Exercise rehabilitation
  • Dry needling

The New Normal for MRIs of the Lower Back

It is often very normal when looking at MRIs of lower backs, for there to be findings that represent no threat and are not the cause of your pain.

Exercise for Osteoporosis

You may already be aware that as we age, our bone health changes, which can lead to osteoporosis, a condition characterised by bone loss and fragility.
