NICK PETRINI, DC

Chiropractor & CEO

Dr. Nick Petrini became interested in Sports Chiropractic after being treated for a chronic shoulder injury in High school. He loved the idea of being able to fix a musculoskeletal problem without the use of drugs or surgery and go beyond by increasing overall performance.


He graduated magna cum laude from Palmer College in December 2010 and completed his certification as a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician in 2011. At that time, he became involved in the use of gait analysis and performance testing technology called OptoGait/OptoJump and was hired by the founding company (Microgate) as a consultant. This endeavor opened up the opportunity to work with numerous elite athletes and world-renowned performance organizations on the youth, high school, college, professional as well as Olympic levels.

Dr. Petrini is dedicated to his patients’ wellbeing and takes full advantage of exceptional and diverse skills, experience and a profound understanding of the human body to treat conditions in patients of all ages. The result is faster recoveries and effective prevention.

In his free time, Dr. Petrini loves spending time with his wife and two sons. They enjoy hiking, camping, paddle boarding, travel and relaxing on a beach with a good book. He strives to workout at least 3 times a week and enjoys weight training and HIIT-style workouts.
