We are a locally owned, full-service Physical Therapy clinic owned by Michael Moravec, PT, DPT, OCS. We offer a plethora of specialized treatments and are here to serve you! We are devoted to offering the highest quality Physical Therapy in the Panhandle.
I first decided to be a Physical Therapist when I was 13 years old. Young? Yes, but I have always had a desire to know how the body works, and how I could make it work better! From that age on, I have only strengthened my passion for helping people feel better by graduating with a Baccalaureate degree in Human Biology from Chadron State College and then receiving my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha. Since my graduation in 2004, I have had numerous courses and training specializations including:
-Board Certified in Orthopaedics
-Level I and II training in Intramuscular Therapy (Trigger Dry Needling) from Kinetacore
-Specialized training in treatment of Temporomandibular Dysfunction (TMD), or jaw/headache pain
-Kinesiotaping Certification levels I-III
-Philadelphia Symposium on Surgery and Rehabilitation of the Hand
-Previous Certification in Wound Care by the National Alliance of Wound Care
-Certification in the Examination and Treatment of Myofascial Trigger Points
-Fitting and application of Sole Supports custom molded orthotics
As my passion continues to grow, I continue to focus on trainings to be able to give my patient’s the latest and most effective evidence-based treatment for their orthopedic problems.
When I’m not treating my patients, I am enjoying my true passion, my family! I am lucky enough to be married to an amazing woman, Lisa. Together we spend time watching our four boys Logan, Lucas, Mitchell and Benjamin grow up and participate in their many events! We like to enjoy our love of the outdoors together including ice fishing, hunting and hiking/camping. Of course, with four boys, our love of sports changes with the seasons, and keeps us on our toes!
My love for physical therapy began while I was working as a student athletic trainer at Doane University, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science and Biology. Working alongside college athletes fueled the desire to treat a wider variety of conditions, driving me to apply to physical therapy school. I earned my Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in 2021 and Level I training in Intramuscular Therapy (Trigger Dry Needling) from Kinetacore. As a physical therapist, I enjoy utilizing movement to treat a wide variety of conditions and interacting with people of all ages.
When I am not treating patients, I love the outdoors and staying active! I enjoy lifting weights, riding bikes, hiking, and fishing. I also have an interest for anything with wheels and an engine!
From the first human anatomy course I took in high school, I knew a career in the medical field was meant for me. I found physical therapy to be the perfect combination of helping others feel better and educating people about their bodies so that they can help themselves. After receiving a Bachelor's degree in Nutrition and Exercise Health Science from good ol’ Nebraska U, I achieved my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Nebraska Medical Center in 2022. I have a passion for all types of PT ranging from pediatric development to geriatric gait and balance, and everything in between; but most of all, I have a passion for PEOPLE. As a native of Gering NE, I am so excited to be able to serve the community that raised me, and practice the profession that I love with an excellent team!
When I am not serving others at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband John and our dog Juniper, exploring the outdoors, kayaking, and playing various yard games with friends and family! Not to mention all the Saturdays spent cheering on the Huskers!
After going through physical therapy in high school and seeing how much of an impact a physical therapist can have on their patients, I knew healthcare was the field for me. While earning a bachelor’s degree from Chadron State College, I worked for Mike as a rehabilitation technician, which inspired me to become a Physical Therapist Assistant. After completing my bachelor's degree, I decided to take on the challenge of a Physical Therapist Assistant program. I worked at Bluffs Physical Therapy full time as the office/billing manager and was enrolled full time in the program in order to complete the degree on time. In 2019, I graduated from the Physical Therapist Assistant program through San Juan College.
When I am not working, I spend my time with my amazing husband, Tyler, and my beautiful daughter, Sage. We are living our "country living" dream with our dogs, cats, and goats. In our free time, we go hunting, fishing, and play games with family and friends!
I have been interested in the medical field since high school after a knee injury led me to Physical Therapy. After earning my bachelor's in Human Biology at Chadron State College, I completed the Physical Therapist Assisting program at Nebraska Methodist College and graduated in 2015. Since then, I returned to Western Nebraska and worked with various people in multiple settings, including outpatient, inpatient, home health, and skilled nursing facilities.
I love the drier weather of western Nebraska and take full advantage by enjoying many outdoor activities. My dog and I spend time hiking in the Wildcat Hills, swimming at Lake Minatare, and just hanging out at the local dog park.
