Certified in the McKenzie Method, Nathan focuses on the mechanical diagnosis and treatment of the spine and extremities. He specializes in the rehabilitation of sports injuries suffered by endurance athletes such as runners, cyclists and swimmers.

Nathan first came to Corvallis as an undergraduate at Oregon State University, where he competed for OSU’s triathlon club, finishing the Hawaii Ironman World Championships six times. He is now very active in the Corvallis community, serving as a co-coach for the OSU Triathlon Club and as the chair for the Good Samaritan Challenge run/walk, which raises funds for rehab patients in need of financial assistance to purchase necessary equipment.
