Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation

The Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Department focuses on conservative treatments of painful spine disorders and musculoskeletal pain problems. Our goal is to use non-surgical treatment options, and when necessary, use state of the art technology, to reduce pain and increase the activity of patients.

We also work with other experts such as chiropractors, as well as occupational and physical therapists. Being part of Mayo Clinic Health System, we are able to refer, when necessary, to surgeons or other specialties to maximize care of the patients. We also have access to specialists at Mayo Clinic.

Our physicians and nurses are board certified specialists and trained in state of the art treatments. We work with each patient to develop an individualized program for care and recovery. Our advanced technologies, like ultrasound-guided injections and other cutting edge technologies, help reduce pain and increase function.
