Patient Results

  • I can walk up and down stairs without losing my balance!

    After falling for the 3rd time, my Doctor sent me for physical therapy to help with my balance. My therapist was very tolerant of my nervousness to try new things, and explained how each exercise would help me. By my last session, I was able to walk up and down stairs by myself and didn’t lose my balance once! I am thankful for the kindness and patience that the NOPT staff has.

  • Back to work without any limitations!

    I injured my hand at work, had surgery to repair tendons, but dreaded dealing with insurance and Workman’s Comp more than the injury itself! NOPT provided a hassle free experience in regards to insurance and billing, and were able to rehab my hand so that I could return to work without any limitations.

  • I’m walking upright for the first time in years!

    Suffering from chronic back pain has been a “normal” part of my life for the past 2 years. I had gone to a chiropractor, and had injections with no relief. My doctor recommended that I try physical therapy before taking the next step of possibly needing surgery. I was skeptical as to if therapy would make a difference, but at this point I was willing to try anything to relieve the pain. I saw a noticeable difference by my 3rd visit as I was walking upright for the first time in years. Strengthening my core and doing exercises to keep my hips aligned relieved my back pain completely!

  • Returned to playing ball!

    Getting back in the game in a timely and safe manner was very important to me. My like-minded, sports experienced therapist understood those needs. My pain level was at an all-time high following my knee injury, and I was not able to tolerate putting any weight on my right leg. After a few therapy sessions, I notice a substantial improvement in my pain level, was able to tolerate more intense treatments, and could see great improvements in my mobility. Having a therapist who was a collegiate athlete, and could use familiar sports drills and exercises during therapy helped me gain strength in my knee, and gave me the confidence to know that I was ready to return to playing ball.

  • Back to independent living!

    When entering the clinic for my first visit, I was unable to raise my arm high enough to take my coat off and on by myself. It was a huge accomplishment to complete that task independently by the 4th or 5th visit, continued to improve, and was eventually able to graduate wearing my NOPT t-shirt that I pulled on over my head with no assistance. Getting back to independent living following my shoulder surgery would not have been possible without the exceptional therapy services and home exercise program offered by Nebraska Orthopaedic Physical Therapy.
