Nick Pontifex 

Director & Principal Physiotherapist

Nick is lucky to have an amazing wife in Yvette and two beautiful young girls in Kalea and Abigail. Nick loves a game of golf when he finds the time, but no longer plays to a scratch level handicap sadly! He also soon will be getting back in to playing baseball to go along with his private baseball coaching work. Baseball has always been a passion for him even before he left home at 17 years old to move to America on a baseball scholarship. Nick continued on with his baseball into college and then professional baseball before completing his Doctorate in Physiotherapy in Florida, USA.  After several years of Physiotherapy, Nick completed his Orthopaedic Certified Specialist (OCS) title in America and has continued to focus on discovering the truth behind complex issues that are often baffling to patients and healthcare workers. Nick further developed his skills by becoming a BradCliff Breathing Practitioner from the world renowned Physiotherapy Breathing Specialists in New Zealand. Nick will be returning there to complete his level 3 certification later this year, the highest level offered. Nick uses his vast array of skills to make sure he gets to the true cause of the patients problem and make each treatment session is of the highest quality.
