About Us

PAIN is a pain in the neck.

When Mike Zalman was young, he was in a car accident. He recovered for the most part, but spent the next 20 years living with pain. He got so used to it, he didn’t realize how much pain he was in. Then he went to school to become a physical therapist and learned how to get to the root of physical pain and dysfunction—to treat causes, not just symptoms. Suddenly, he realized he actually could live without pain. He could breathe again. He could once again live life on his own terms. Today, Mike and his colleagues at Husker Rehab share a similar journey with each and every patient who comes through the door, searching for solutions, putting everything they have into getting to the bottom of pain and dysfunction of the body.

At Husker Rehab, physical pain and dysfunction are personal. We’ve become very good at listening to our patient’s needs and desires, analyzing the problem, ferreting out causes, and figuring out ways to get people moving again. That’s the bottom line and its reflected in our core values.

We treat the body holistically, like a builder builds a house. If the pieces don’t work together correctly, it weakens the structure and causes problems. We treat posture first, like a builder frames first. Only then do we perform traditional, trusted therapies to methodically coax a body back to normal. We re-evaluate often and make adjustments as we go, then teach patients how to maintain their newfound health at home—how to establish good habits and build a foundation of wellness, so pain is less likely to become a problem later in life.

Today, Husker Rehab proudly offers services in four clinics in three different Nebraska cities, where we serve physicians and their patients with unique, highly-intensive, highly-customized rehabilitation, wellness and preventive care therapies that make a real difference in people’s lives. Our meticulous expert therapeutic methods (along with our fun, positive atmosphere, and devotion to patients and their individual needs) have earned us a reputation as the area’s most dependable rehab solution. Our well-documented customer satisfaction rating is 98%.
