Boston-based chiropractors, specializing in overuse soft tissue (muscle, tendon, ligament) injury using Active Release Technique (A.R.T.) and Graston.
Dr. Ian Nurse founded Wellness in Motion Boston with a strong background in the conservative care of soft tissue (muscle, tendon, ligament, fascia and nerve) injuries. He has successfully treated a range of patients–Olympic level runners; recreational athletes; musicians; individuals dealing with work-related injuries; grandparents seeking more active/pain-free lives with their families. As a marathon runner for the past decade, Dr. Nurse has endured many overuse injuries of his own. Unwilling to accept the typical response: “If it hurts when you run, you should stop;” that he received when seeking relief from his various injuries, Dr. Nurse turned to chiropractic and Active Release Techniques (A.R.T.). Not only did his training and racing improve, but he also found his calling. Dr. Nurse thrives to help those whose lives and hobbies are limited by pain and discomfort. Focusing on the critical relationship between human locomotion and the soft tissues that drive movement, Dr. Nurse addresses an injury by finding the root of the problem and not just treating the symptoms. As every injury has its own chronology and pattern, Dr. Nurse utilizes a patient’s history, as well as a thorough biomechanical and soft tissue assessment to formulate an appropriate treatment plan. While each injury’s treatment requires its own strategy, overall outcome goals are similar: · Restore proper biomechanics and soft tissue function; · Improve general range of motion of the involved joint; · Increase power and strength of the involved tissues; · Decrease frequency, duration and intensity of symptoms; · Reduce the chance of re-occurrence. Dr. Nurse is a fully certified Active Release Techniques provider with experience focused on the spine, lower extremity and upper extremity. He is also a certified provider of Graston Technique. Like A.R.T., Graston Technique safely and conservatively treats scar tissue and fascial adhesions through detection and effective break down of scar tissue fibrosis and chronic inflammation. An avid athlete, Dr. Nurse has run in hundreds of road races all over the world. He continues to train competitively in hopes of improving on his personal best marathon time. This commitment to training has given him a unique understanding of the mental and physical demands of endurance training. Aside from running, he enjoys photography (actually most of the photos on this web site are his), reading, cycling, hiking, soccer, lacrosse and experiencing the outdoors. Dr. Nurse is currently the team chiropractor for the Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) High Performance Team. He graduated Cum Laude at both Western States Chiropractic College of Portland, Oregon and Colby College of Waterville, Maine. While I hope I haven't gathered any excess "moss", I know I have garnered my fair share of bumps, bruises, strains, sprains and fractures along the way. Refusing to accept the traditional response of "if it hurts, you should stop doing it" from the doctors who have had to listen to my complaints of aches and pains, I found myself seeking alternative care that centered on getting to the root of the problem. With this new focus, not only did my own stone continue to roll but I found my calling in helping others maintain their momentum and continue doing the motions that they love.
