Robert Nee

Robert J. Nee, PT, PhD, MAppSc

Bob has been teaching with NOI since 1994. He is currently a Professor in the School of Physical Therapy and Athletic Training at Pacific University in Hillsboro, Oregon. He completed his Bachelor of Science in physical therapy at Boston University in 1985, a Master of Applied Science in manipulative physiotherapy at the University of South Australia in 1993, and a PhD in physiotherapy at The University of Queensland in 2012. His PhD research investigated the value of neurodynamic techniques in the diagnosis and treatment of nerve-related neck and upper limb pain and has been published in international peer-reviewed journals. Bob has over 25 years of clinical practice experience in musculoskeletal physical therapy and over 15 years of experience in entry-level, post-professional, and residency/fellowship education.
