“After receiving my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln and graduating from Creighton University’s DPT program, I took a job with Saint Elizabeth Regional Medical Center as a staff physical therapist. In that role I provided sports medicine outreach with Pius X High School, which led to coordinating the school’s sports outreach program for over 10 years. Now I’m excited to bring Athletico and its legacy of quality care to the Lincoln community that I care so much about.” -Clinic Manager, Duane Wade, DPT, CSMT
