Treatments Available

As part of your physical therapy treatment, Active Release Techniques® (ART) is a soft-tissue mobilization technique that treats conditions such as headaches, back pains, plantar fasciitis, and knee problems, which are often associated with overused muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves.
Acupuncture has been used in China for more than 5,000 years to encourage the body to heal itself naturally. An acupuncture practitioner inserts thin needles in very precise acupuncture points that correspond to various organs and systems of the body. Western medicine theorizes that acupuncture stimulates the production of neurochemicals that influence the body's internal regulating system, improving energy and biochemical balance.
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.

Most back problems result from cumulative stress, muscle weakness, and poor posture and body mechanics. Unless the underlying causes of low back problems are addressed, the risk of re-injury remains high.

Chiropractic is a branch of physical medicine that diagnoses and treats problems of the spine, muscles and nerves. Doctors of Chiropractic are able to manipulate or adjust the spine, pelvis and extremities in order to restore normal motion and function.
Dry needling is a form of manual therapy in which fine needles are inserted into myofascial trigger points, tendons, ligaments, or near nerves in order to stimulate a healing response in musculoskeletal conditions. It is used to treat dysfunctions in muscle, connective tissue and diminish nociceptive (pain) input. Our specifically trained providers will use dry needling, in conjunction with exercises and other interventions, to get you better, faster, and back to the things you love to do.
The Golf Program is a specialized rehabilitation program designed to put injured amateur and competitive golfers back on the course, playing the game that they love. With an understanding of the unique biomechanical requirements and demands of the game, physical therapists from the Institute for Athletic Medicine work with you for quick and effective rehabilitation.
Our hand therapists provide specialized rehabilitation of the upper limb including the hand, wrist and elbow following injury, disease or surgery. Our therapists work closely with you and your doctor to design a program to help you live life as fully as possible.
Our physical therapists are trained to treat problems that occur with the joints and muscles of the jaw. They can help to identify the painful structures, address the problem areas, and retrain the muscles to work together. Our trained providers use a combination of treatment techniques to address your pain.
It is quite common for children to wet the bed, but less common and more embarrassing for children to wet or soil themselves during the day. Children who experience daytime or nighttime wetting and soiling can suffer low self-esteem, and they may have delayed social development. However, incontinence is a treatable condition, and it doesn’t need to be “waited out” until children outgrow it.
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.
Many things can affect the overall health of the pelvic floor in men, often resulting in pain and/or dysfunction. Signs and symptoms may include muscular weakness resulting in loss of urine or bowel control, pelvic pain, testicular/scrotal pain, tailbone pain or erectile dysfunction. Pain can even appear in other parts of the body, and this affects how your body reacts. Many do not recognize that the overall health of the pelvic floor can affect all sorts of bodily functions.

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.

Postural Restoration is a posture based approach used by physical therapists and athletic trainers.

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.
