I am a board certified podiatrist from who’s passionate about foot health. I absolutely love seeing my patients transform their feet without surgery or invasive procedures!

I started Doctor Ark as a place for you to learn about your feet, find the tools you need to restore your feet, and the support to get you where you want to be! Whether you want to eliminate pain, get stronger, more flexible, or simply feel better in shoes, I am happy to help you achieve those goals!

Podiatry has traditionally relied heavily on treatments such as orthotics, injections, and surgery. While these can all be helpful in certain cases, the vast majority of foot pain is caused by foot dysfunction. After several years in private practice, I realized there was a serious need for education and programs to help people reverse foot dysfunction. We simply are not doing enough during a 10-15 minute office visit to help people truly get better.

Credentials

Bachelor of Arts from Boston University Doctor of Podiatric Medicine from Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine Forefoot & Rearfoot Reconstructive Surgery Residency at Hoboken University Medical Center Board Certified by the American Board of Podiatric Medicine

**Please Note: If you are a New Patient seeking an Initial appointment with Dr. Ian Nurse, he is currently only accepting New Patients at our Concord office. Once you have had your Initial appointment in Concord, you may see him at the Downtown or Brookline locations for follow-up appointments.

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; professional and recreational athletes; A-list movie stars; musicians; individuals dealing with work-related injuries; grandparents seeking more active/pain-free lives with their families.

As a marathon runner for the past twenty plus years, 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 of 2:25 (Boston ‘13 and ‘14). 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 New Balance Boston professional running team. He graduated Cum Laude at both Western States Chiropractic College of Portland, Oregon and Colby College of Waterville, Maine.

Justine does her best to practice what she preaches by staying active as much as possible. As a former fitness instructor, there is no exercise she will not try! Her personal favorites are spinning, lifting weights, and aerial arts [think Cirque du Soleil].

Taylor first encountered chiropractic while competing as a collegiate lacrosse player. Many sports related injuries arose; however the season stopped for no one. Nothing seemed to be helping her pain and altered biomechanics and she was unable to put her intense training to use as a result. After a referral to a chiropractor, the pain and weakness improved and her biomechanics became stronger and in-sync. This made a significant impact on Taylor’s life. She noticed improvements in her performance and endurance competitively after chiropractic treatment. Taylor felt inspired by not only how her symptoms were relieved through chiropractic care, but also how balanced and energized she felt.

She continues to be treated with chiropractic care as a preventative approach now that she is no longer competing.

Taylor became a chiropractor herself so she could share this balance and relief with others. Her mission is to help others create and maintain a high level of health giving them the ability to express themselves fully.
