Doug feels tremendously fortunate to have physical therapy as a profession.
After nearly 20 years of clinical practice, he still enjoys his work immensely.
Many factors contribute to his continued passion for the profession. Physical
therapy provides so many tools that create treatment plans that cater
to the specific needs of each patient. Physical therapy encourages continuous
learning and professional growth. Doug is greatly satisfied to help people
increase their quality of life. Additionally, he has the opportunity to
work in a great environment with an amazing group of committed, caring
and fun associates.
Through Doug’s many years of practice he has studied with most of
the world leaders in physical therapy. He has extensive training in the
evaluation and treatment of both spinal and extremity problems, as well
as extensive post-graduate training in spinal and peripheral manipulation,
soft tissue release and diagnosis-specific exercise training. Doug’s
broad training background allows him to choose the treatment approach
that best suits each patient and produces the most satisfying outcome.
Doug specializes in spinal and lower extremity problems.
Doug received a Bachelor of Science degree from Nebraska Wesleyan University
