Nicholas Bledsoe, DC
I originally grew up in Terre Haute, Indiana with my father, a chiropractor, and my mother, an educator. They instilled in me a value for hard-work ethic, the ability to listen, and an optimistic attitude. We relocated to Fort Myers, Florida where I finished school. After graduating from Cypress Lake High School, I accepted an academic scholarship to attend the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida. I graduated in 2015 and received a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Applied Physiology and Kinesiology.
Following graduation, I completed an extensive internship at a private practice physical therapy clinic in Richmond, Virginia. After the completion of my internship, I accepted a position and worked there for 4 years while my wife was in dental school at Virginia Commonwealth University.
I continued my education at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, Florida. In 2021, I completed the Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) degree program graduating in the top percent of my class as a summa cum laude. While in school I was active in sports council, motion palpation, and the Florida Chiropractic Association.
I met my wife, Julia Giardina, during our time as undergraduates. She completed dental school as well as a Postgraduate Orthodontic and Dentofacial Orthopedic Program at Virginia Commonwealth University. She is also currently practicing in Harrisonburg, Virginia with her mentor at Kray & Giardina Orthodontics. When not immersed in talking about health care, we enjoy hiking, working out, going to sporting events, trying new food, and watching the latest release on Netflix.
It is the mission of Valley Spine Chiropractic to improve our patients’ quality of life through evidence-based treatment including chiropractic adjustments, exercise prescription, and soft tissue therapy. Our goal is that each patient leaves our office empowered with a better understanding of the treatment they receive and a greater knowledge of the functioning of their bodies.
Our vision is to impact the approach to healthcare by causing a shift from reactive care to proactive and preventative wellness care by incorporating evidence-based treatment, exercise, and lifestyle modifications.
