Here is a bit more about Dr. Nathan Dailey:
Dr. Nathan Dailey graduated with a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) from the US Army-Baylor University in 2016. He served on Active Duty in the US Army from August 2013 to September 2020 where he worked with service members in a variety of occupations including helicopter pilots, infantry and special operations soldiers, explosive ordnance disposal technicians, and dog trainers. While on Active Duty he also deployed for 9 months to Iraq and provided front-line care to US and coalition service members serving in harsh environments throughout the operations theater.
While still in the military, he began to pursue advanced clinical education in the sub-specialty of orthopedics (care of bone, muscle, tendon, joint, and peripheral nerve conditions), obtaining his residency-level qualification as an orthopedic specialist (OCS) in July 2020. He has continued to develop his orthopedic skillset with his current pursuit of fellowship training (FAAOMPT) in orthopedic and manual physical therapy, with an anticipated completion in late 2024. Additionally, he has held a CSCS credential from the NSCA for over a decade.
Dr. Dailey has worked carefully throughout his career to develop pain-free strength in the context of high-stress environments, restoring tolerance for high-load short-duration and low-load long-duration professional and sporting activities. He specializes in marrying graded exposure with targeted rehabilitative interventions to reduce pain quickly. This approach is well suited to the powerlifting community, where the advice “don’t train” is often not a viable strategy. He has successfully treated both recreational and internationally competitive powerlifters with customized training and rehabilitative interventions that leverage his highly specialized educational and professional background.
