He applies these same principals of training to all patients to improve activity level, general health, quality of life and everyday function. Manual Therapies, including myofascial release, joint mobilizations, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, and functional dry needling are hands-on techniques that he uses daily. Nick’s professional focus is helping patients develop a healthy exercise approach that decreases the chance of injury and disease over a lifetime.

Nick feels very fortunate to be able to serve patients as a Physical Therapist and is committed to the development of the next generation of clinicians.

Stefanie Urbom, PT, DPT, CLT-LANA, ACSM-CCET<br><h4>Physical Therapist</h4>

Stefanie Urbom, PT, DPT, CLT-LANA, ACSM-CCET

Physical Therapist

Stefanie earned her Bachelor of Science Degree in Exercise Science from Nebraska Wesleyan University in 2007. She went on to complete the Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) program through the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) in 2012.

While attending Physical Therapy school, Stefanie had a close family member diagnosed with and successfully treated for breast cancer. That experience sparked an interest in the field of breast cancer rehabilitation and brought to her attention the urgency for education about breast cancer and its after-effects, as well as the need for lymphedema therapists. She attended the Klose Training and Consulting Lymphedema Therapy Certification Course in 2013, becoming a Certified Lymphedema Therapist (CLT). Additionally, she went on to earn the highest level of achievement for a lymphedema therapist acquiring her certification from the Lymphology Association of North America (LANA). Following the birth of her first child, Stefanie discovered the need for physical therapists to have specialized training in conditions affecting the pelvic floor. In 2015, she furthered her skill-set in this area by attending specialized training offered through the Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute.

Stefanie sees patients for a multitude of orthopedic conditions and has a special interest in the treatment of patients with pelvic floor dysfunction, low back/SI joint/tailbone pain, cancer, lymphedema and swelling related to trauma, surgery, pregnancy, lipedema, and venous insufficiency. She is passionate about sharing her knowledge of the human body with all of her patients. She is devoted to giving her patients her time and finding practical solutions to common conditions that can feel very sensitive and difficult to discuss in order to end the stigma that often surrounds these conditions.  She appreciates the opportunity she is given to teach each of her patients strategies for the long-term management of their conditions and to help them to regain a sense of independence over their health and wellness.

Stefanie is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), the APTA’s Section on Pelvic Health, the APTA’s Section on Oncology, the Nebraska Physical Therapy Association, and the UNMC Alumni Association.

Stefanie and her husband, Jon, have three young sons, Henry, Theo, and Jack. She enjoys listening to music and shamelessly singing off-key, lifting weights, riding her bike with her boys, golfing, practicing yoga, reading, and spending time with her family at the lake in the summer.

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 she carried this into developing another cancer rehab program at the Carson Cancer Center in Norfolk, NE, while employed there.

Additionally, Renee has been trained with vestibular rehabilitation and also enjoys assisting those with balance problems, prosthesis training, and pre- and post- operative patients.

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.
