Eric Bjorkman, Physical Therapist and Owner

Armed with a bachelor’s degree in exercise science and a master’s degree in physical therapy, Eric began his career in 2000 and launched Physical Therapy Solutions in 2006.

The Lincoln native has always been fascinated by the mechanics of the body and the healing process. Eric was drawn to physical therapy after experiencing it himself following sports injuries and after seeing his grandmother overcome limitations with physical therapy. His greatest rewards come from the friendships he develops with his patients and seeing them improve with each visit.

Eric specializes in treating low back pain, neck/shoulder pain, knee pain, ankle/foot pain, and post-surgical rehabilitation including total knee replacement and rotator cuff repair.

Eric, wife Kelly and daughter Piper enjoy spending time with extended family and friends. Outdoor activities such as boating at the lake, going for a run or bike ride or just working in the yard are favorite hobbies.

Amanda Cielocha, Office Manager

Amanda is the smiling face patients see when they walk through the front door at Physical Therapy Solutions. But her duties as office manager go well beyond greeter; she runs the schedule and works with patients to understand the insurance and billing process.  Amanda loves her job – and is motivated by Eric’s passion for his work and rewarding friendships with patients.

A Columbus, Nebraska, native, Amanda is a self-described sports nut. After hours, you might find her at a Jazzercise class, playing volleyball, hanging out with her beagle Howie or getting away for a long weekend at Lake of the Ozarks.
