Nathan is also working as a physiotherapist and manual therapist in a private practice and is a board member of the Dutch Association for Manual Therapy and the Member Organisation delegate of the Netherlands in the International Federation of Orthopaedic Manipulative Physical Therapists.

In the past years, Nathan was involved in several projects about occupation and health and he investigated to what extent physiotherapists integrate occupational factors within their treatment of patients with musculoskeletal disorders. His current research topics include (work related) musculoskeletal disorders, the integration of occupational factors within physiotherapy practice, self-management and healthy living.

Nathan has given many (inter)national presentations and chaired focused symposia at the IFOMPT conference in 2016 and the WCPT congress in 2017.
