Molly is a 2004 graduate of the Creighton University Doctor of Physical Therapy program. Molly has extensive outpatient orthopedic, low back pain and Sacroiliac dysfunctions and women’s health experience. Through her work in Women’s health physical therapy, she recognized the significant need and unfortunate lack of services and trained practitioners available to treat these individuals that had acquired lymphedema through other diseases and their consequent treatment options. Molly wanted to learn more about the disease and develop the skills necessary to treat those patients in the clinic. Most recently Molly has been working in Skilled nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and in the Home Health arena of therapy working with the Geriatric population, of whom she really enjoys.
Molly earned her International Certification of Lymphedema Management in 2012. She has been trained in the Leduc Method of lymphedema treatment which is one of the most researched and evidence based practice methods in the many options of training. She treats both men and women with lymphedema in the upper or lower extremities.
Molly grew up in rural Southwest Iowa as the oldest of three girls. She was involved in sport, music and the arts. She attended the University of Nebraska at Omaha majoring Exercise Science then attended Creighton University.
Following graduation from Creighton, Molly and her husband Shane, moved West and lived in Washington and Oregon for 5 years before moving back to the Midwest to be closer to family. Molly enjoys giving back to her community and serving others in need. She is often seen volunteering at Creighton for their various community projects. Molly, along with another colleague, run a volunteer Physical Therapy clinic at One World in South Omaha one time a month serving those in need of therapy that are uninsured. Molly has also recently taken on a teaching roll at Creighton in the summer modular program for Creighton’s International China Program.
Molly and Shane have three Children, Barrett (9), Mason (7), and Brenyn (2). Molly enjoys time with her family and attending her children’s activities as well as various hobbies including reading, photography, knitting, biking, traveling, trying new food, and music.
Molly and her family look forward to joining the Consbruck family at Dynamic Physical Therapy and becoming a part of the Gretna community.
