Founder of Fick PT & Performance | Orthopedic Manual PT Certified | Dry Needling Certified | Blood Flow Restriction Certified
Dr. Gina Fick, PT, ScD, FAAOMPT became passionate about physical therapy during her high school and college years when she played on various sports teams. During this time, she sustained a serious and season-ending injury that kept her from the activities she loved, but through that experience, she discovered her passion for physical therapy.
Dr. Gina was impressed with the impact that physical therapy had on herself and other people trying to get back to the activities and sports they love. This inspired Dr. Gina to become a physical therapist and help athletes prevent injuries, recover from injuries, and return to doing activities they love.

In her free time, Dr. Gina likes to spend time with her husband and her four children. Her favorite activities include enjoying local sporting events, hiking, skiing, and off-roading through the mountains in their 4×4!

Her experience includes providing care to high-level professional and olympic athletes, as well as collegiate, high school, youth, and masters athletes.
