  About Us

Karen Brown, PT, owner of Alliance Physical Therapy, graduated from UNMC in 1977 with a degree in Physical Therapy and immediately began her career as a staff therapist in Omaha area hospitals.  Within a few years, Karen began providing physical therapy to area nursing homes and home health agencies as an independent contractor.  By 1983, she was in full private practice and had expanded into the area of industrial physical therapy.

Her practice, "Working Bank Institute," focused exclusively on ergonomic consultation with Omaha businesses, rehabilitating with work hardening/conditioning programs and evaluating the final ability of injured workers via Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCEs).

In 1994, with a dire shortage of Physical Therapy services in her hometown of Alliance, Nebraska, and with a strong compulsion to return to small town living, Karen and her family moved back to Alliance to open "Alliance Physical Therapy."  In the early days, operations were out of a small house with herself and Joan Shannon as office manager. The practice quickly grew and today, Alliance Physical Therapy is housed in a 3000 square foot facility with a professional staff of two physical therapists, one physical therapy technician, and support staff.

In addition to being well-respected as a top-notch orthopedic outpatient physical facility for western Nebraska, the clinic also provides pediatric PT to the infants, toddlers, children, and teens with injuries, disabilities, and special needs.  APT is also active in providing  industrial consultation, ergonomic assessments and recommendations, customized on-site exercise programs, pre-employment and post-offer screenings, rehabilitation and work conditioning for returning injured workers to the jobsite, and FCEs.

Knowing that the healthcare consumer of today has access to a wealth of information available through the web and a multitude of choices regarding who will provide their healthcare, Alliance Physical Therapy is committed to continuing the highest quality rehabilitation with therapists dedicated to meeting the goals of every patient, a clean and spacious facility, cutting edge technology, and a support staff to make every step of the rehab journey a positive experience.
