Casey Moeller ■ DPT
With over 16 years experience as an in-demand physical therapist, Casey's love of helping people heal began when he experienced rehabilitation to his own body as a high school athlete. Originally from Grand Island, Casey graduated from Doane College in 1996 and from Creighton University with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2000. He was part of the team that founded Crete Physical Therapy in 2006 and purchased the practice in 2008. You can also find Casey at his other clinics: Coddington Physical Therapy in Lincoln and Hickman Physical Therapy.
When Casey isn't at the office, he enjoys life by being with his family: skiing, biking, traveling, playing softball, and coaching youth sports. He and his wife, Shannie, have four kids - Cade, Ella, Crew, and Cash - who attend Norris school. The Moeller family recently moved to an acreage near Roca and love the beauty of the landscape and sense of rural community.
Hickman Physical Therapy has allowed me to recover from injury and return to athletic competition. Their efforts have helped me with three separate injuries. Each time I have had a welcoming and friendly experience. They also have donated money toward the Shrine hospitals when I asked them to—showing their caring mentality. - Brody Zabel (Norris graduate 2017)

Last year I fell hard on concrete and blew up my shoulder. I had surgery in December and began therapy right away. I had lots of pain and limited mobility for months but Casey and his staff worked with me 3 to 4 times per week. Casey told me it would take up to a year to get most of my strength and mobility back. Thanks to Casey and his staff, I have made great progress. It’s only the end of July and I plan to go pheasant hunting this fall! - Marv Renner
BRANDIE ■ P.T.A.
Brandie has been working as a PTA since May 2016 for Crete Physical Therapy and Hickman Physical Therapy. Her husband Kirk and four kids Mathew, Caitlyn, Andrew and Mallorie, reside in Firth and attend Norris schools.
In her spare time she enjoys returning to the Sandhills with her family to go tanking down the Middle Loup River. She is kept busy attending her kids’ activities which include volleyball, football, basketball, wrestling, track and soccer.
If you are in need of physical therapy, I would highly recommend Hickman Physical Therapy without reservation. The staff is very knowledgeable about developing your recovery as quickly as possible and as safely as possible. In addition, you will not find a friendlier staff anywhere. My wife and I have been extremely impressed with the care and empathy about each of our situations on the road to recovery with our knee replacements. I am confident you will be pleased with their expertise. - Gordon Essink
