The Nebraska City Rotary Club had an opportunity to learn about one of the town’s newest businesses Wednesday afternoon.
Greg Cromer, MSPT, and Ashley Daily, DPT, ATC, spoke to the group about Husker Rehabilitation and Wellness.
Cromer said the Nebraska City location is the sixth Husker Rehab clinic.
The business began in Fairbury in 1995 when Cromer contracted with the community’s hospital to provide occupational, speech and physical therapy.
When the hospital chose to bring those services in-house, Cromer and his partners opened their first clinic office.
The business also has three locations in Lincoln and one in Beatrice, he said.
“We’re very excited to be in Nebraska City,” said Cromer. “We’re happy to be here.”
Cromer said part of Husker Rehab’s treatment philosophy is to investigate the underlying cause of the pain, rather than just alleviating the symptoms.
The clinic offers services such as post-surgical rehabilitation, injury prevention and ergonomic assessments at job sites.
The clinic’s equipment is also available for Nebraska City residents to use for a nominal monthly fee, said Cromer, when it is not being used by physical therapy clients.
Daily, a certified athletic trainer, spent time at Clemmy Holmes Field during the state baseball tournament and at Saturday’s Arbor Town Throw-Down basketball tournament downtown.
Cromer said clinic staff is also available to work with athletes at the local schools.
The clinic at 115 S. 8th St. also has a small meeting room available for community groups to use.
Cromer said he plans to offer lunch-n-learns in the meeting room in the future.
The speaker at tomorrow’s (July 26) Nebraska City Rotary meeting will be David Nicholson, a retired police and state patrol detective, who will share stories and insights on law enforcement.
The meeting begins at noon at the Eagles Club, 600 1st Corso. Guests pay $9 for lunch.
