Athletic Medicine at the University of Nebraska is dedicated to providing all student-athletes in the department with the highest level of health care. The care given by the Nebraska Athletic Medicine staff goes well beyond the daily medical concerns that every Division I program has regarding injury prevention, treatment and rehabilitation. The total health care of the individual is the goal of the Nebraska program. The staff continues to identify and assist in the treatment of the student-athlete at risk for overwhelming stress, career threatening injury, eating disorders, psychological disorders and other medical problems.

In addition to impressive hydrotherapy areas, the Athletic Medicine Center had a X-ray room complete with hospital-grade equipment. The Center also provides private areas for physical exams, an emergency medical procedures room, a licensed pharmacy, rooms designated for drug testing, braces and rehabilitation supplies and dental appliances. The athletic medicine staff also uses the MRI center in the East Stadium CB3 research area for their MRI needs.
The Athletic Medicine Center, paired with one of the most knowledgeable and experienced medical and training staffs in the country, make Nebraska the leader in personal care in college athletics.
Of vital importance to the success of any team is the protection of the athlete from injury, and the rapid return of the injured athlete to full speed. Head Athletic Trainer Jerry Weber has been serving Husker student-athletes and perfecting his skills as a dual certified Physical Therapist and Athletic Trainer for more than 40 years.
An important goal of the Athletic Medicine program is to assist student-athletes in overcoming obstacles to their success in sports and in the classroom. The athlete confronted with overwhelming stress, substance abuse, disordered eating, or other impediments to success receives assistance. Nebraska Athletics has assembled a professional team that features both quality and depth in sports performance psychiatry, psychology and mental health services offered under the department's Athletic Medicine Program.
Sports massage therapy is available for athletes recovering from repetitive muscle strain. Amy Seiler, NU's massage therapist, provides sports massage therapy to student-athletes through the Athletic Medicine Center from 9-11:30 a.m. each weekday.
