Chance Unger BS, Athletic Training, 2012
Physical Therapist, Lincoln Orthopedic Physical Therapy, Lincoln, NE
After graduating from UNL in 2012, I continued my education at the University of Nebraska Medical Center to pursue a doctorate in physical therapy, which I completed in 2015. I currently work as a physical therapist in an orthopedic physical therapy setting as well as use my athletic training skills for a local high school football team. My responsibilities are many, but include evaluating patients and athletes with injuries or complaints of pain and developing a rehabilitation plan of care focused on improving physical ailments until they can return to a prior level of activity or sport.
Being a physical therapist is an extremely rewarding career. I especially appreciate the many interactions with people that I am able to meet from day to day and providing a service that can improve the quality of their lives.
