Hi! I'm Dr. Nikki Tukdarian, owner of Perform and Recover. I want to help you move and feel your absolute best.
That's me. I don't know how to take a normal picture, but I do know a thing or two about the workings of the human body. Let me explain...
I graduated from the University of Miami in 2009 with a Bachelors of Arts in Psychology. Psychology wasn't for me so I switched it up and attended Life University in Marietta, GA where I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Doctorate of Chiropractic and Summa Cum Laude with a Masters degree in Sports Injury Management in 2014. So yes, I'm a chiropractor by trade, but I have spent a ton of time outside of the classroom expanding my skill set beyond just 'fixing' neck and low back pain. You can check out what that entails in the 'Services' section below.
Get to know me professionally and you'll hear me say this a million times: NOTHING IN THE BODY ACTS IN ISOLATION. This is why my background as a physician, movement specialist and athlete is crucial in treating YOU, not just your pain and discomfort.
Let's chat about how I can help you reach your goals.
NORMATEC® RECOVERY SYSTEM
Normatec® Recovery system is a clinically proven method that utilizes air pressure changes to increase circulation, reduce soreness, and help people perform at their best.
Graston Technique® is a patented form of manual therapy that uses stainless steel instruments to find and release adhesions in the muscles and fascia to reduce pain as well as increase range of motion and function.
POWERDOT® SMART MUSCLE STIMULATION

Joint manipulation is a technique-based skill where trained practitioners use their hands or a device to apply a quick, controlled force to a joint to improve range of motion and function.
Body tempering is a form of mobilization that involves deep and heavy pressure to muscles using weighted steel cylinders that are held statically on or moved slowly along the length of a body part in order to facilitate repair of tissue, improve soft tissue extensibility, and reduce pain.
COMPRESSION BAND FLOSSING
Flossing is technique of soft tissue/ fascial mobilization that uses the science of compression and fascial shearing to help ‘unstick’ muscles and joints so they move better and with less pain.
Kinesiology taping is the application of a thin, stretchy, cotton-based therapeutic tape that is currently being used to change muscle tone, move lymphatic fluids, correct movement patterns, and improve posture.
Corrective exercise prescription is a technique that leverages an understanding of anatomy, kinesiology, and biomechanics to address movement compensations and imbalances to improve the overall quality of movement during workouts and in everyday life.
