Dr. Gina Fick, PT, ScD, FAAOMPT

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.

Dr. Gina started this clinic with the vision of providing outstanding treatment in the most effective way possible. She is passionate about being able to help patients thrive and excel beyond your expectations by offering highly-skilled, evidence-supported physical therapy and sports recovery services so that you can achieve the BEST results!

She values patient-centered, one-on-one care, where she is able to spend adequate time with you and fully utilize her skills to help you feel better and return to a healthy and active lifestyle. She wants you to have a meaningful, successful experience with physical therapy, and that is the foundation of this business. Her focus is solely on outstanding, patient care that will empower you with hope and success.

Dr. Gina received her Doctorate of Science in Physical Therapy from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in 2006. She has been practicing as a physical therapist specializing in outpatient orthopedics and sports medicine for over 22 years.

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!

She holds a manual therapy certification from the International Academy of Orthopedic Medicine-US (IAOM-US) and is a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapists. Gina is certified by Dr. Ma’s Integrative Dry Needling Institute to perform dry needling techniques that address neurological and musculoskeletal dysfunction. Additionally, she holds a certification in blood flow restriction training from Owens Recovery Science. Gina is highly skilled in manual therapy of the spine and extremities and has extensive experience in post-surgical rehabilitation, sports injury prevention and recovery strategies, and sports performance training.

Her experience includes providing care to high-level professional and olympic athletes, as well as collegiate, high school, youth, and masters athletes. She conducted biomechanics research at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center aimed at comparing gender-specific differences in athletic tasks, such as jumping, landing, and cutting. She now utilizes dorsaVi technology to conduct athletic movement assessments, which helps to identify ways in which athletes of all levels can optimize movement and performance. As a former collegiate basketball player, Gina understands the importance of training programs that focus on helping athletes maximize their athletic potential while reducing their injury risk.
