Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy

Bringing Physical and Occupational Therapy to all!

Exercisabilities was founded to be a place for the Southeast MN community to have improved access to Rehabilitation Services. Our core rehab programs reflect this community need by offering both physical and occupational therapy in many focus areas for all ages. Our highly skilled staff are specialists in their focus areas. We will build a road map to improved health for you that will lay out your path to wellness including not only PT or OT but also lifelong wellness in one of our exercise programs or in your community. Research shows that movement is the key to improved health. We will help you regain movement and achieve good health again!.

Aquatic Therapy – We provide Aquatic therapy as an enhancement to your physical therapy program when the benefits of water will progress you more quickly or with less pain than traditional overground therapy. Our aquatic therapy is delivered at area pools including the Rochester Area Family YMCA, 125Live, and at The Club at Shorewood (for Shorewood residents and The Club members only). You will be scheduled for a land based evaluation first to determine if aquatic therapy is appropriate and recommended.

Neurologic Rehabilitation – We believe that the nervous system has plasticity and can repair and change for many years after injury to any location. For this reason, we offer therapy often beyond the traditional model and we see results! Whether you have a spinal cord injury, brain injury, stroke, Parkinson’s, MS, cerebral palsy, or any other neurologic condition, we are specialists in providing the BEST PT and OT in Southeast MN. Our staff is specialized in NDT, NRN neurologic recovery, PWR!, and many other neurologic treatment approaches. Our equipment is the same as you find in larger medical centers and is research based to aid in your progress.

General Orthopedic Recovery – We offer many approaches to your general orthopedic needs including joint surgery recovery, shoulder injury, tissue or joint pain, and many other conditions.

Pain Management – We have a specialized approach to chronic pain that is far different than you have most likely experienced before. It is perfect for the person that is frustrated with all of the other medical or holistic approaches and are ready for a change. Our staff do extensive postural and movement education along with use of myofascial techniques, vibration therapy, and Kinesiotaping to assure that you are improved when you finish our pain program and are ready to take life on again!

Healthy Aging/Balance Enhancement –  Falls and loss of mobility are NOT a natural part of aging. They are a result of our decreasing activity levels and increasing addition of medications that often does occur with aging. We work to empower you with improved activity, decreased pain, increased flexibility and a return to the joy of moving again! Our program includes extensive education on the reason for debilitation with decreasing activity levels and how to regain control of your life through techniques to improve your ability to move in a safe and pain free way.
