Our Story

Exercisabilities was founded by Melanie Brennan, PT, DPT during her Doctorate work in 2008.  Dr Brennan identified a problem that needed solved – people of all ages with neurologic or medical conditions that effected their physical, cognitive, or social well-being in SouthEast MN needed a place to go in the community where they could continue their rehabilitation after they finished their acute care at Mayo Clinic.  They needed a place that was accessible, had staff who understood their needs with multiple different disciplines available, and had the right kind of equipment to help them achieve their goals.  After working at Mayo Clinic for 11 years in acute rehabilitationMelanie conceptualized a place that would meet all of these needs.  She set to work to build Exercisabilities.  These videos below show unique approaches to the care that we deliver, our staff hard at work, and our clients enjoying the benefits of having access to such a state of the art facility.  Exercisabilities is proud to be a nonprofit, and strive to assure that our services and resources are available to all people that desire to work with us.
