Welcome To Gray Duck Physical Therapy
At Gray Duck Physical Therapy We Provide The LONG TERM solution to remaining active in the sport and activities people love PAIN FREE for Coon Rapids, Blaine, and the surrounding areas of MN.
If you're anything like us being active, running, lifting is a part of your social life, your "me time" and stress relief, your self care to keep you fully present and involved in your life.
As athletes ourselves we know the frustrations that come with injury derailing your training and how normal rehab just doesn't quite seem to get you back to 100%.
That's why we created a better way.
Let Me Ask...
Are you trying to stay healthy/fit but can’t because an injury is impacting your ability to exercise?
Is an injury stopping you from participating in activities you love like working out, running, CrossFit, or just being fully involved with your family?
Are you dealing with a chronic injury that just doesn't seem to go away no matter what you try?
Have you seen other medical providers in the past with no long lasting changes?
Does this Sounds Like You?
We hear this from most of our patients.
How do they finally get the results the have been searching for?
We focus on solving these problems rather than specific diagnoses with our clients.
Our goal is to help you stay active in whatever type of training or sport you chose for as long as you choose to do it.
Life is a lot more fun when you’re pain free and doing the things you love.
You being fit and healthy is also the best way to enjoy time with your friends and family.
We help you live the high performance, pain-free life you deserve no matter the label you've been given by the medical community.
Who We Help:
Who just need a little help (or a lot of help!) getting back to the activities they love after an injury or set-back.
Who want to continue pushing their limits, but are being held back by an injury or pain.
Who want to safely increase their speed and mileage while reducing the aches and pains, as well as lower their risk for injury.
Who don’t want their pain and stiffness to interfere with their training goals and are tired of being told to “just stop lifting” or working out.
Who need to keep their bodies performing at their best, without painkillers or visits to the GP.
Who need to be able to move easier to play hard on the weekend without paying for it later.

Here’s Some Stories From People We’ve Helped In The Past…
Dr. Nick has been instrumental in making everything feel better, head to toe. One of my biggest struggles was with calf pain while running which has always bothered me and was just something I lived with. After working with Dr. Nick I have been running for the 1st time in my adult life pain free. I have also learned how to take care of my whole body and movements I can do to reduce soreness. Dr. Nick really listens to what you need and gives you all the tools to be successful. What I really appreciate, is that he makes sure that you are understanding the movement and will adjust his wording until you get it. I have enjoyed working with Dr Nick and am happy with my results!
Due to a couple of hip injuries over the years of playing hockey, my hips would be sore from sitting all day, working out, and many other daily activities. When working out, I would shy away from actually using them in exercises that needed them. I had tried physical therapy once before, but the doctor basically gave me stretches then sent me on my way. I decided to try it again with Dr. Nick and my experience was so much better. Every session was a workout to build up my hip strength and mobility. Not only are my hips stronger and more mobile, but I no longer experience daily pain. Dr. Nick helped me have confidence again in actually using them when working out my lower body. I could not recommend Dr. Nick enough and I am so thankful I went to see him!
