UBE Physical Therapy and Performance is a rehabilitation facility that specializes in athletic and orthopedic recovery. Our mission is to provide doctorate-level care, and one- on-one attention to all of our patients. Since 2016, we have served central Maine in Bangor and Ellsworth, and now are eagerly expanding south into Lewiston.
We offer targeted physical therapy and rehabilitative services across a wide spectrum of ability and necessity and inclination with treatment options including manual therapy, targeted exercise programs, cupping and dry needling.
We offer functional capacity evaluations, and other ergonomic screenings for injured employees looking to return to work. This new location also shares the space with the Maine Basketball Club, and specializes in personal training and strength and conditioning for all sports, alongside a variety of unique therapeutic interventions.

Nate graduated from Stetson University with Bachelor Degrees in Integrated Health Science and Psychology in 2018. Upon graduating, Nate returned home to Bangor and received a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Husson University in 2021. He has a special focus in industry-related rehab, and is certified in functional capacity and ergonomic evaluations. Athletics have always been a part of Nate’s life, and he also enjoys sport-specific rehab. He views both athletic and industry rehab as an opportunity to return people to their field and perform at their highest level!
Outside of work, Nate has a passion for outdoor recreation. He enjoys hiking, climbing, and skiing, and seeks to be outdoors in any season. He loves to swap adventure stories, and is looking forward to hearing about the latest trail you’ve explored!

UBE Physical Therapy and Performance is proud to support the local communities we work in, because most of our staff is native to Maine and we live in this community too. We feel that supporting community programs and collaborating with other businesses and organizations only serve to help our community members.
We understand that Maine is a rural state and physical therapy access is not always feasible for all that need it. Many insurance companies cover telehealth services to help meet this need. It may sound confusing as to how telehealth physical therapy visits work. Our skilled therapists can remotely evaluate symptoms, educate the individual on their condition and appropriate modifications and considerations to manage symptoms and then remotely work them through a targeted exercise program with guidance and progressions if appropriate.
