Jason Meints is a physical therapist who specializes in the rehabilitation of amputees. He has assisted in the development and advancement of the rehab programs used at Hanger Clinic, which are specifically designed to address all issues that an amputee might encounter, from dealing with phantom pain to learning the proper mechanics of gait. He works directly with the prosthetists onsite to collaborate treatment of each patient, making sure all adjustments and fitting issues are taken care of to ensure productive therapy sessions. He believes that the sky is the limit and there is no reason that an amputee can’t get back to doing all the things that they love. He is passionate about his work and dedicated to giving each patient the resources they need to be successful. Although he works with varying patient populations that include orthopedic and neurologic diagnoses, 90% of his caseload is amputees, which is very rare. He is involved with Hanger Clinic’s clinical education program and travels to educate other therapists and healthcare providers around the country about how to better serve and rehabilitate the amputee population. He has been with Hanger Clinic for more than 7 years.
Jason started his journey to physical therapy at Nebraska Wesleyan University where he received his Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science with a minor in Psychology in 2008. From there he completed his Doctorate of Physical Therapy at Des Moines University in 2012.
Jason was born in Beatrice, Nebraska, and is an avid Husker fan. He lives in Omaha and is married to his better half, Katie, and together they have two beautiful daughters, Madelyn and Emma. In his free time, he enjoys working out, watching football, spending time with family and friends, and traveling when opportunities arise. A fun fact about Jason is that he has a twin brother and a younger brother who are both physical therapists as well.
