Dr. Dave Kim

PT, DPT, CSCS

Lead Physical Therapist

Dr. Dave Kim is a physical therapist who has conquered his own long lasting pain. His first-hand experience in managing persistent pain gives him a unique sense of empathy and compassion to his patients that is exemplified through the quality treatment he provides at ADAPT, powered by Next Level Physio.

Like many of our clients, Dr. Dave experienced the various frustrations and disappointments that come with the revolving door of our healthcare system. He was promised quick-fixes and silver bullet solutions by many professionals, but nothing seemed to get to the root cause of the pain.

This ultimately led Dr. Dave down a path of learning the complexities of the human body from well established practitioners across the nation and piecing together literature from different disciplines. He was able to overcome his pain for good and is now able to do everything he loves with no limitations.

He is fully committed to a patient centered approach that is holistic and entirely individualized to everyone who steps foot into ADAPT in Montclair, NJ. Every single person is unique and as such, an exercise or program that works for one person may not work for another. Dr. Dave strives to make every session an educational experience in which clients can understand the root cause(s) of their pain and implement immediate strategies to address both underlying and overt symptoms.

Dr. Dave’s calling is to help every client he encounters regain control of their lives and identities through Physical Therapy.

Dr. Nicholas Dass

PT, DPT, CSCS

Physical Therapist

Dr. Nicholas Dass is a physical therapist and certified strength and conditioning specialist here at ADAPT Powered by Next Level Physio in Montclair, NJ.  Dr. Nick’s journey into the world of health and movement was set into motion at the age of 16, when he tore a ligament in his elbow.  After sustaining multiple injuries, culminating with a lower back injury sustained during powerlifting,  he found himself frustrated with the lack of answers he received.  Dr. Nick struggled to find providers in the medical system who could help him understand the specifics of his own body that led to his predisposition to these injuries.  His experience motivated him to become a practitioner that can help his client understand the root cause of their limitations; taking the full picture of the body into account and not just focusing on one isolated part.

Dr. Nick obtained his Bachelors of Science in Applied Kinesiology at Rutgers University, where he went on to receive his Doctorate in Physical Therapy at New York University.  As a lifelong learner, during his schooling and postdoctoral career, he sought out guidance from some of the best providers around the nation to compile a well rounded understanding of the human body. 

Dr. Nick has a strong belief and passion for rehabilitation all across the spectrum of human life, and takes pride in his ability to help others gain back control of their own health and return to the activities that they love.

Dr. Alyssa Natale

PT, DPT

Physical Therapist

Dr. Alyssa Natale grew up surrounded by healthcare professionals and, from an early age, knew her future would follow in those footsteps. After receiving her Bachelor’s degree from Kean University with a major in Biology and a minor in Health Education, Dr. Alyssa continued on to work as an aide in an outpatient physical therapy clinic, where she solidified her appreciation for a holistic approach to healing. She then went on to complete her Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) at Dominican College.

Dr. Alyssa is an avid runner and strives to maintain an active lifestyle. Through her own experience with injury, she’s discovered what can transpire both physically and emotionally when our performance is affected by pain. This understanding played a big part in why she chose to immerse herself in a field that helps others preserve the activities that bring them the most joy in life.

Throughout the years she has been exposed to numerous physical therapy settings, where she has garnered the best practices to help her patients meet their goals. One of those areas of study has led her to explore the significance of pelvic floor health and the crucial role it can play in one’s quality of life. She has found this to be a topic that is not discussed nearly enough and hopes to bridge that gap by educating others on its importance. Here at ADAPT, Dr. Alyssa expands on the value of a healthy pelvic floor and dedicates her time to developing the best treatment plan for those in need.
