Dr. Bryan Nichols, PT, DPT, OCS
A Pursuit of Clinical Excellence
Dr. Bryan Nichols spent multiple years at work in a typical physical therapy setting. He left is previous position to start Ascend Orthopaedics in 2017 due to a realization that the sacrifices in quality of care would always be a problem if he took insurance direct. With the belief that our healthcare treatment should not be something we share with others he started Ascend to provide physical therapy in a way that put the client first. The decision to be an out-of-network provider was the decision. This meant that the client could come first and not the amount insurance pays. It also means that clients would not receive filler care and a different type of physical therapy experience was born.
Dr. Nichols is a board certified orthopaedic specialist in physical therapy. He believes that we should always look to become better at what we do. As a current manual therapy fellow in training Dr. Nichols continues his education to the highest clinical level. As an educater he teaches at local universities to help grow and develop student physical therapists. With additional focus on the spine and chronic pain the he has ranked as one of the top providers nationally in orthopaedic care.
