Nick Hadinger

PT, DPT
Physical Therapist

Nick Hadinger is originally from Tucson, AZ where he completed his Bachelor of Science in Physiology at the University of Arizona and graduated with his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. Growing up, he participated in just about every sport you can think of but swimming was always a passion. During his undergraduate experience at the U of A, he swam for the Men’s Swimming and Diving program, was a multiple time Pac 12 Academic All-American and competed at the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials. Because of his athletic career he has always been drawn to working with an orthopedic and athletic population and has experience working with NFL, MLB and NFL combine athletes at The Fischer Institute.

Nick has a strong interest in manual therapy and total body wellness in order to provide the highest quality of evidence-based patient care. In his free time he continues to enjoy swimming, weight lifting, playing basketball, camping, snowboarding, grilling and, of course, cheering on the Wildcats. If it’s in the water, the woods, the sun or the snow you can count him in!
