While Erin’s kindergarten classmates were learning how to make patterns she was using them to learn how to balance on one leg, with both eyes closed. It’s not a coincidence that she is helping our patients do the same thing today. She has been a great addition to the Makovicka Physical Therapy staff in helping our patients with balance and vestibular conditions. We can only hope that she’ll start taking out her anger from the blackjack losses in a better way than hiding playing cards around the clinics.
Erin was born in Michigan, but raised in Lincoln, Nebraska. Before finding her passion as a physical therapist, Erin was an avid powerlifter as a competitor, organizer of meets and representing athletes across Nebraska. Her lifting career came to a close as a member of the 2002 USA Junior National powerlifting team, competing in the World Championships in Sochi, Russia. She received her Bachelor’s degree in psychology at UNL, and went on to earn a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. She is an experienced orthopedic therapist as well as a Herdman Certified vestibular specialist, assessing and treating all varieties of dizziness/vertigo and balance disorders.
