Location Features
Physical activity and exercise are integrated with instrument assisted manual therapy to facilitate recovery from a variety of injuries.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Changes in a woman’s body brought about by pregnancy, aging or illness often result in discomfort, loss of mobility and lifestyle changes. Pelvic pain and dysfunction may occur throughout all stages of a woman’s life. The Women’s Health Program at the Institute for Athletic Medicine offers specialized physical therapy and exercise programs to help treat or prevent these problems. Our physical therapists work with you and your physician to develop an exercise and treatment program tailored to your needs, including access to education materials for home use.
