Nick started his private practice journey in 2014, working in an outpatient practice and assisting in providing physiotherapy services to sports teams. He has subsequently gone on to start and grow his own practice, Enhanced Physiotherapy, which is now considered to be one of the leading neuromusculoskeletal and orthopaedic physiotherapy practices in KZN.

His business philosophy is based on sustainable growth and on-going partnerships with people. “I get more joy from building something with people than owning and running everything on my own and having my own name on everything. There is strength in collaboration and giving people a platform to develop and to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. To go fast, work alone. To go far, work together!”(African proverb).
