While attending Physical Therapy school, Stefanie had a close family member diagnosed and treated for breast cancer.

She attended the Klose Training and Consulting Lymphedema Therapy Certification Course in 2013, becoming a certified lymphedema therapist.

Stefanie spent her first years of practice treating patients in the fields of outpatient orthopedics and home health care. Most recently, she has focused her practice on the treatment of patients with lymphedema and swelling related to trauma or surgery.

She began her career in Grand Island, NE, developing a love for out-patient rehabilitation at a sports clinic as well as specializing with pediatrics at the Children’s Rehab Center.

She has educated others regarding indications for physical therapy to increase their strength, assist with range of motion primarily prior to and following surgical interventions, strengthen pelvic floor musculature for incontinence associated with prostate and cervical cancers, proper breathing techniques for lung cancer, as well as neuropathy commonly noted with cancer treatments. This quickly became a passion of hers and carried this into developing another cancer rehab program at the Carson Cancer Center in Norfolk, NE while employed there as well.

Testimonials

Complete Physical Therapy helped me get my life back!  When I began my physical therapy I was about as low as I could go, but with their concern and encouragement I not only regained my physical strength, but my emotional strength as well.  I highly recommend Nick and the rest of the physical therapist at Complete Physical Therapy.  They work as a team and help you get back to your normal life.

Vicki C.

Even though he is located on the other side of town from where I live, he is so good, that the distance became unimportant. I realize there are qualified physical therapists in my area, but the ones I had worked with in the past didn’t seem as knowledgeable or dedicated as Nick.

Judy Stephens

The entire staff at Complete Physical Therapy works as a team. Friendliness, helpfulness and professionalism are evident in everything they do, from scheduling weeks in advance to billing explanations to the physical therapy. I would recommend Complete Physical Therapy to anyone needing these types of services, and highly recommend Renee as a partner in your rehabilitation process.

Joel Sunderman

EXCELLENT place for physical therapy!!! The therapists look at the complete individual not just where you are having “pain”.

Kimberly Whaley

Nick and the rest of the staff were great. They explained my injury, pushed me to work harder, and kept thinking of different exercises to do at home as I progressed. I hope I won’t need PT anytime soon, but if I do I’ll come back.
