Welcome to Lincoln Orthopedic Physical Therapy!

Lincoln Orthopedic Physical Therapy (LOPT) has served the Lincoln community for over 30 years. LOPT therapists are specially trained in the examination and treatment of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular problems that affect one's abilities to move and function in their daily lives.

Since the first LOPT facility was opened in 1982, we have been committed to providing the highest quality of care available. Today, there are three LOPT offices in the Lincoln community. Physical therapists, manual therapists, occupational therapists, athletic trainers, hand therapists and Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE’s )are on staff. This highly trained workforce offers a broader array of services than other clinics.

LOPT is 100% therapist owned and operated. Each of our locations shares the philosophy that we must make the most of every scheduled patient visit.
