Nicole Besana

Nicole Besana, PT, MPT

Nicole was born and raised in upstate New York.

She completed her undergraduate studies at Ithaca College, Ithaca NY, receiving her Bachelors of Science Degree in pre-medical studies. Nicole went on to complete her Masters Degree in Physical Therapy from Ithaca College in 2003, graduating Summa Cum Laude.

Nicole’s professional career has focused on outpatient orthopedic medicine, both surgical and nonsurgical. With the mobility afforded by her husband’s military career, she has had the opportunity to work in many different clinics and work with a wide variety of patient populations and ages.

Nicole happily joined the Orthopedic & Sport Rehab (OSR) Physical Therapy family in 2008. She has been a certified group fitness instructor for the past 15 years, teaching a variety of formats. When not taking care of her patients at OSR, she enjoys time with her husband and three children. A former competitive gymnast, she keeps an active lifestyle with cross fit, running, swimming, and biking, just to name a few.

Nicole is caring, thorough and enjoys interacting with her patients. She feels her role as a practitioner is also that of an educator, passing her knowledge on to her patients so that they not only return to full function and the things they love to do, but they also obtain the knowledge to help prevent future injury.
