Nick Hunter

PT, DPT

President and Owner of Preferred Physical Therapy


Trupti Mehta

Nick grew up in Glendale and attended Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah where he received a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science. He then attended the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, and received his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree.

While in school, Nick was able to work in a hearing and balance center, pain management clinic, several orthopedic clinics and as a student athletic trainer at Brigham Young University Athletics to help shape his clinical experience. In 2010, Nick moved back to the Phoenix area to begin his physical therapy career. After just 2 years in practice, Nick was promoted to Partner Physical Therapist, managing a team of physical therapists and support staff. With that experience he decided to continue his care for patients by starting his own clinic. Some of his special areas of interest include orthopedic rehab, vestibular impairments, and trigger point dry needling. He is particularly skilled with the spine, knee, and foot and ankle areas.

With these skills and his focus on his continued education, he loves being able to help his patients get their lives back on track. When he isn’t working or continuing his PT education, Nick enjoys CrossFit training, cycling, triathlon training, jeeping and spending time with his wife and four kids in the outdoors by camping in the summers, and snowboarding in the winter.
