Testimonials

“I was desperate from having pain for so many years. I had tried PT before doing something called needling and was tortured with a tool that was scraping my skin. I also saw a chiropractor, even went to the Mayo clinic for treatment. My family doctor suggested that I go and talk with a PT at OPTI as he, himself, had been a patient there and was impressed by their knowledge about pain. The first session, the PT spent the whole time listening to me. He just let me tell him my whole story. After I was finished, he explained to me that he didn’t know if he could help me but he was going to do everything he could to try to find me some relief. He educated me about pain, what it is and not to fear it. He did some hands on treatment and gave me some movements and positions to try out on my own. He encouraged me to try to start an exercise program. He gave me confidence in moving again. For years I had stopped moving as I was scared it was making my pain worse. To make a long story short, I am not 100% pain free yet but I know I am going to get there. Most days I have little to no pain at all and if I do, I do not fear it. Thanks to OPTI, I feel like I am getting my life back. I am so glad my doctor told me about them. I just love going there.”

“The one on one attention was great. I liked that everything we did tied back to soccer. My rehab was soccer-specific and I was able to get some sessions in at the Athletes In Motion Clinic out at the Omaha Sports Complex which was pretty awesome! I felt confident in returning to play!”

“This note is no doubt long overdue, but comes with enormous gratitude that only continues to grow. This September marked three years since my ACL repair, and each day since I have been blessed with the ability to be fully active, play any sport my heart desired, continue coaching the beautiful game of soccer, climb new mountains (literally) and take on countless adventures and challenges. I certainly have your impressive expertise and fabulous patient care to thank for much of that. So, with all of my heart (and my healthy-thanks-to-you-right-knee), I am grateful. Thank you for leaving a positive permanent impact in my life!”

“Omaha Physical Therapy Institute and their amazing therapists, Katie, Brent, Sara and Mark, are the best for any type of physical rehabilitation you require.  My needs involved having two total knee replacements within five months. That required many visits to Katie and resulted in great success.  Katie paired her knowledge, abilities and expertise with her compassion for a rehab process for me that made my journey enjoyable while working hard to heal.  Ally, the trainer, then assisted me in their Wellness Program for additional strength and healing through exercise.  Let’s not forget Lori, who mans the front desk with great patient service and a warm and welcoming smile.  Of course, Marquette, is on top of all of the marketing needs and is a delight when she wants you to share your story.  The environment is one of healing through work and joy.  You always are met with a smile no matter who you encounter; therefore, you always leave with one.”

“The professionals at OPTI are experts in pain management, and the rehabilitation of weak and injured muscles and joints. Brent and his team are professional, but they love what they do, and it shows. I looked forward to my therapy visits with the team, as they have fun on the job, and it transfers to the patient visit. Brent rehabilitated my knee after my ACL reconstruction in 2014. He was great to work with, and I am now back to running and leading an active lifestyle, and recently ran my first 7 minute mile since before the injury! My daughter has worked with Sara twice, once for a strained knee ligament, and once for her back after a car accident. Both times, Sara worked with her and got her back on the soccer field as quickly as possible. I would highly recommend Brent, Sara, and the OPTI team for your physical therapy needs.”

“Omaha Physical Therapy Institute (OPTI) is such a fun atmosphere. Getting therapy here kept me motivated and excited to progress in a positive direction with my injury.

“Brent and Katie are two of the most caring and compassionate individuals and their passion for helping others is evident in the way that they run their clinic and in the employees that they have. I feel comfortable sending my patients to them and I trust them with my family members as well. Omaha needs more PT clinics like OPTI.”

“My orthopedic surgeon suggested physical therapy for my tennis elbow. I had no idea where to start? I called my PCP and was referred to OPTI…I couldn’t be more satisfied with the therapy I received from there. Everyone is nice starting at the front desk with Lori! I would recommend them hands down than any other place in town. Thanks OPTI!”

-Stephanie (Tennis Elbow)

“I would recommend OPTI because it is an engaging environment with PTs who care about their patients and their recovery even after they finish their rehab. This injury was just a bump in my road in playing soccer, but not an injury that would hold me back from playing again.”

“If you have to have PT this is the place to go, hands down!!! Love this bunch!”

-Kathy (Hip Pain)

“If you have an injury (boo!), there is no better place to go for rehab. I’ve had 2 separate rounds of PT through OPTI and have always enjoyed/appreciated the level of service that they provide. Have had 4 ACL reconstructive surgeries over a 20 year span and I’ve had a lot of rehab, they are simply the BEST!”

-Dana (Knee Injury)

“Great place with even better people! There’s no place I’d rather go if need be. Katie is and has always been amazing at what she does right along with the others. Even when I’m off at school she’s always someone I text if something hurts or doesn’t feel normal. LOVE OPTI!”                                                                                                                                             -Sidni (Ankle injury)

“OPTI provides the perfect environment for rehabilitation. I have no reservations when referring my patients there for physical therapy.”
-Family Practice Physician in the Omaha area

“Something I would want people to know about OPTI is that I was able see the same physical therapist every single visit. Most people do not realize that this is unfortunately unique about OPTI. I went to a different PT clinic initially for my injury and found out I was being seen by a college student who was a technician there so I switched to OPTI. It is a night and day difference in quality of care between the two clinics.”
-Claire (Ankle Injury)

“Omaha Physical Therapy Institute (OPTI) has helped me to lay the foundation for an active and healthy lifestyle! My time at OPTI was one filled with laughter, sincerity, and knowledge! From my family to yours, we want to thank you for the wonderful services you provide!”

“I really appreciate how much Brent helped me get back into playing collegiate baseball after my shoulder surgery. He gave me comfort, hope, and strength during a tough time and I am grateful for it.
-Mike (Shoulder surgery)

“I have had a total knee replacement on both knees but have gone to two different places for physical therapy. Omaha Physical Therapy Institute was so much better than the first place I had to go to. I was able to see Brent every time and his approach to getting my knee to straighten and bend was a lot more effective and less painful than the other place.
-Diane (Total Knee Replacement)

“Thank you for helping my daughter’s shoulder. You have an amazing gift as a healer. I will share your card and expertise with others that may need your help.”

“I have spent years with shoulder pain and have tried tons of different exercises and medications. I was ready to have surgery but then my doctor told me to try Omaha Physical Therapy Institute before going through with surgery. I was reluctant but I went anyway and Brent helped me feel so much better after only a few sessions! I don’t plan on having surgery now!”

-Christina (Total Knee Replacement)

“Going to physical therapy at OPTI was something I looked forward to every week. Katie not only helped me with the physical part but she also got me through the mental obstacles of recovery. She is the only therapist I know that will take her patient out on the field and work with them one-on-one. Katie and Brent made me feel comfortable and they could always make me laugh through the frustrating times in rehab.
Ally (ACL surgery)

“After I tore my ACL I was devastated but with the help of Katie and OPTI, I am back playing again this season. She not only cared about me as a patient but she truly cared about me as a person and an athlete. I strongly recommend OPTI to anyone without hesitation.
