Nicki Quarne (pronounced QUAR-nee) suffered a knee injury in high school that required surgery and several months of physical therapy.
“I had a great outcome and decided that physical therapy was something I’d like to do to help others,” she said.
Nicki says she sees her patients have the best results when they are active participants in their own care.
She treats all outpatient orthopedic injuries and has special interest in sports injuries, Parkinson’s disease, vestibular rehab, bowel and bladder health issues and prenatal and postpartum care.
She is board-certified in biofeedback for pelvic muscle dysfunction for the surface use of EMG biofeedback to monitor and treat elimination disorders and pelvic pain syndromes.
“I tailor my treatment approach according to the needs of each individual patient,” Nicki said.
A goal in physical therapy is for a patient to get a better understanding of their condition.
“We help patients take what they learn at physical therapy and apply it to their daily life in order to see improvements and reach their functional goals.”
Nicki holds a bachelor’s degree in biology and master’s degree in physical therapy from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and has been with Marshfield Clinic Health System since 2001. She is actively involved in the Wisconsin Physical Therapy Association, where she is a credentialed clinical instructor for student physical therapists and a mentor for pre-therapy students.
She lives in Marshfield and grew up on a farm near Abbotsford. She enjoys volleyball, taekwondo, running, hiking, yoga, mountain biking, skiing and coaching basketball, soccer and volleyball. Her husband is a teacher and they have three children.
