Physical Therapy is essential and we continue to use best practices to ensure the safety of all.   Masks for all staff and patients are required and surfaces are being sanitized during and after each patient (as usual).  We  are working with our local universities to allow SPT’s to meet their internship requirements, however we are not allowing any other student observers at this time.

We continue to enforce all staff and patients to stay home if they experience any fever, cough, shortness of breath, upper respiratory or flu like symptoms.  Please be prepared to have your temperature taken with a non-touch digital thermometer upon arrival.

If you are experiencing an emergency, please call 911.  If you wish to call the clinic and leave a message for non emergency issues, you are encouraged to do so at 507-474-6900.

Thank you for your patience and for allowing us to partner in your care.

Dry Needling

Dry Needling is a specific treatment technique that utilizes a small solid filament needle to treat muscle trigger points, inflammation, swelling and pain.

How Does It Work?

The mechanical stimulation of the muscle produces a local twitch or rapid depolarization of muscle fibers.  After this process the muscle activity dramatically reduces resulting in relaxation and decrease in pain and dysfunction.  This decrease in pain is related to the removal of muscular compression on joint, nerve, or vascular tissue.  Dry Needling also stimulates release of endogenous opioids, and initiates a “new healing process”.

Is Dry Needling The Same As Acupuncture?

No, Dry Needling is based on Western medicine principles and research.  Acupuncture is based on Chinese medicine with the purpose to realign your “Qi” throughout the body

Graston Technique

The Graston Technique uses a form of instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization. Instruments are used to detect and break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. Scar tissue develops as a result of surgery, immobilization, trauma, repetitive trauma, among other causes.

This method can be used to treat both acute and chronic conditions that lead to pain, reduced range of motion, and decreased strength. This method works by inducing controlled microtrauma to the tissue as the scar tissue is broken down. This then creates a local inflammatory process that stimulates the healing process. Once the adhesions are broken down function of the involved tissue returns.
