Justin Nicol, PT, DPT, OCS, hails from the cornfields and hockey hotbed of Waterloo, Iowa, where he developed a strong passion for the game.

This allowed a unique opportunity for Justin to work as an Adjunct Physical Therapist with the Minnesota Wild for the last four years and develop rehab strategies for injury prevention and recovery to apply to athletes of all ages and sports. He has special interest in treating sports and orthopedic injuries, specifically, lower extremity injuries, shoulders, and provides on ice return to play rehabilitation for hockey players.
