Dan Miller, PT, MS, is a graduate of the Masters Physical Therapy program at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. With 19 years of practice experience, Dan devotes his passion to support healing within the specialty areas of resolving chronic pain, and restoring the essential physical requirements of movement health and physical performance. Through the unique personal perspective as a patient requiring shoulder surgery/ rehab, Dan’s career was exposed to a deeper understanding of the subtle requirements of resolving muscular imbalances of the shoulder girdle. This discovery led Dan to develop a means of grading coordinated motor influences in a functional manner through an assistive motion device called the UE Ranger. To date, two research studies evaluating this device compared to traditional methods have been published by Cincinnati Sports Medicine and the University of Kentucky.
Turning a negative into a positive has guided Dan to contribute to the art of healing through the expansion of an understanding of resolving patho-mechanics associated with reflexive substitutions and resultant compensations. Dan remains fascinated by the intricacies of human motion. As co-founder and Director of Healing Motion Physical Therapy in Omaha, Nebraska, Dan has grown to recognize through dedicated practice and staying current with advances in health care that despite the apparent complexity of a person’s pain or movement dysfunction, true healing is not only possible but achievable. The key Dan says “is merging the natural properties and resilience of the human body with the right ingredients of therapeutic influences.
