Our Staff

Dr. Erik Nabi

Dr. Erik Nabi

Doctor of Chiropractic   /   Rehab Movement Specialist

Dr. Nabi was born and raised in Buffalo, NY (go Bills!). He grew up with one older brother, Tarik, and a loving, supportive family. Erik found an interest in healthcare from an early age. His Father is a medical doctor, and would take him to observe surgeries and to visit patients following their procedures. He also found an early passion for fitness and athletic development. He excelled at baseball and trained year round to improve his game.

Through a passion for healthcare and fitness, Erik found his calling in physical medicine as a chiropractor. He believes in a dual approach to helping his clients. He teaches them how to improve their pain and body awareness through the performance of functional movements. Secondarily, he utilizes hands-on joint and soft tissue therapies to facilitate their ability to perform these movements. He has found the combination of movement education and hands-on therapy to be most effective in helping clients find relief from pain and reach their performance goals.

Erik believes in a “practice what you preach” philosophy of health and fitness. He engages in weightlifting, road biking, running, sand volleyball, and teaching fitness classes in his free time. He and his wife, Jordin, enjoy being active and spending time outside with their golden doodle, Mowgli.

Coach Nate Grigsby

Coach Nate Grigsby

Functional Movement Coach   /   Nutrition Coach

Nate grew up in Toledo, OH, where he competed in a variety of sports including baseball, football, and golf. Throughout his athletic career, Nate experienced multiple sports-related injuries that threatened his ability to stay on the field. He sought the expertise of practitioners, which allowed him to continue training and competing in sports year round. The experience of working with these individuals sparked his initial interest in the field.

In 2015, Nate graduated from the University of Cincinnati with a bachelor’s degree in Sports Dietetics and Exercise Physiology. He began developing his functional training skill set through internships at local sports injury clinics. Here, he worked closely with chiropractors and physical therapists that introduced him to Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS), and further increased his passion for helping individuals solve movement-related problems. He subsequently developed a unique approach to training that combines a skill set in clinical therapy movement education with fitness performance programming.

Currently, Nate keeps an active lifestyle and enjoys playing sand volleyball, weight training, skiing, golf, and going on hikes with his wife Jessica and their two big dogs, Hunter and Sven.

Dr. Taylor Swint

Dr. Taylor Swint

Doctor of Physical Therapy / Pelvic Floor Rehab Specialist

Dr. Swint was born and raised in Toledo, OH. From an early age, she developed a passion for competitive sports. She began her journey as a gymnast, and later dedicated her time to competing in volleyball and basketball at St. Ursula Academy. Taylor decided to attend The Ohio State University, where she graduated with a Bachelors degree in Health Sciences. While performing her undergraduate studies, she fell in love with long-distance running and completed her first half-marathon and a full marathon.

Taylor decided to become a physical therapist due to her passion for fitness and the desire to make an impact in the lives of others. She went on to physical therapy school at the University of Cincinnati. During her Doctoral education, she became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) to develop a strong understanding of how to return athletes from rehab to performance. After graduation, Taylor developed an interest in women’s health and pelvic floor physical therapy. She recognized that women with pelvic floor dysfunction are underserved, and many of these women are never provided appropriate care due to a gap in the clinical education system.

Taylor is certified to perform internal pelvic examinations to provide the most detailed care for women that desire to improve their pelvic function. This approach is especially important for new post-partum Mothers and those with chronic pelvic floor dysfunction. Taylor has developed a variety of hands-on techniques to facilitate the healing process of her athletes and pelvic health clients. These include dry needling, cupping, joint manipulation and soft tissue therapy to provide relief from pain and discomfort, while getting people back to their optimal level of function.

When not at work, Taylor enjoys spending time with friends and family. She is happily engaged to her fiancé Kyle. Taylor maintains her fitness through weightlifting, taking classes at various fitness studios, and running.
