Jason Masek, MSPT, ATC, CSCS, PRC

Hello, my name is Jason Masek.  I am a staff physical therapist at the Hruska Clinic™ and an associate faculty member through the Postural Restoration Institute® (PRI) .  I have been a part of the Hruska Clinic™ since June 2001.  Prior to my arrival, I obtained my degree in Physical Therapy from Des Moines University Osteopathic Medical Center in Des Moines, Iowa.  Preceding my Physical Therapy education I spent 2 years at the University of Minnesota where I was a Graduate Assistant Athletic Trainer with the football team and obtained my Master of Arts in Kinesiology.  I earned my undergraduate degree in Exercise Science from the University of Nebraska- Lincoln and was a student athletic trainer with the University of Nebraska Track and Field, Baseball, and Football teams.

Throughout my education I have always had the aspiration to understand biomechanics and the pathomechanics of the human body and how this may influence posture and/or potential injury.  I had the opportunity to gain knowledge about Postural Restoration® through speaking engagements given by Ron Hruska during my undergraduate years which further led me to acquire a clinical rotation at the Hruska Clinic while in Physical Therapy school. After my clinical affiliation I was then hired by the Hruska Clinic™ as a Staff Physical Therapist.

I have been involved in Sports Medicine at the collegiate level and continue this effort through consultations with the University of Nebraska and various club sports.  Professionally, I have a strong interest in postural asymmetry as it relates to lumbo-pelvic dysfunction as well as temporalmandibular dysfunction.  I take part in various speaking engagements at the local and national level educating physical therapists, athletic trainers and sports performance professionals about Postural Restoration®.  The realization and uniqueness of Postural Restoration® has led me to earn the designation of Postural Restoration Certified™ (PRC) through the Postural Restoration Institute® (PRI) .  This designation has led to educating and consulting with a network of physical therapists, athletic trainers, dentists, and other allied health care professionals across the country.

On a personal level, I enjoy the outdoors, sports and cooking. I live in Lincoln with my wife Stacia, and children Paxton, Charlee and Alivia.  I am also a dog lover and the proud owner of our Boxer; Bronx.  When not working, you can usually find us at the lake, enjoying the great outdoors and our time away from the city.
