The Institute for Athletic Medicine (IAM) provides certified athletic trainers to Twin Cities metro area high schools and sporting events. Our athletic trainers have expertise and training in injury prevention, treatment and reconditioning.
Blood flow restriction (BFR) training utilizes a personalized tourniquet system (PTS) to partially restrict blood flow to the working muscle while fully restricting blood flow back to the heart for a short period of time during low-intensity exercise.
While cyclists ride for different reasons — recreation, transportation, competition or fitness — there is one theme common to most: a desire to cycle. At the Institute for Athletic Medicine, we share your passion and have developed CycleFit, an injury treatment and prevention program designed for cyclists of all abilities, from recreational to racer.
Manual therapy has been shown to be an important aspect of your overall plan of care. In comparisons of those individuals who are prescribed exercise alone versus those who also receive manual therapy, the group receiving both often has better outcomes. Our providers pair manual therapy with exercises and patient education to quickly best treat your condition and get you back to the things you love to do.
Mechanical diagnosis and therapy (MDT) is a philosophy of care which involves active patient involvement and education. It is an evidenced based approach that is trusted and used by practitioners and patients all over the world for neck, back and extremity problems. MDT’s key distinction is the initial assessment component – a safe and reliable means to accurately reach a diagnosis and only then make the appropriate treatment plan.
Next Step is a five-week 10-session sports rehabilitation program that bridges the gap between in-clinic sports injury rehabilitation and return to high-intensity sport activities.
As Nordic skiers, our physical therapists understand the unique mechanics and musculoskeletal demands of Nordic skiing when treating the injured skier, in and out of season. We have developed a specialized Nordic Ski Rehabilitation Program that takes into consideration the specific elements and demands of the sport while recovering from acute to chronic injuries.
Physical therapy is at the core of what our team does each and every day. Physical therapists (PTs) are health care professionals who treat people for muscle, bone and joint conditions that limit their ability to move and perform activities in their daily lives or in sports. Physical therapy is used to help people return to work and play after an injury, surgery, or illness.
Most runners have a few simple goals: Run better. Run farther. Run faster. Run without pain. At the Institute for Athletic Medicine, our running program experts understand these goals. Whether you’re recovering from an injury or training to prevent one, our running specialists help you stay in top form.
The thrower's injury program aims to return injured athletes to their sport at or above their previous level of performance. With an understanding of the unique mechanical requirements of throwing, physical therapists develop an individualized return-to-throwing program to improve strength, mobility and throwing mechanics to prevent further injury. The return to peak performance requires involvement of coaches, athletic trainers and parents.
