What it is

Physical medicine and rehabilitation focuses on diagnosing and treating problems that affect the muscles, bones and joints, as well as the nervous system. Your physiatrist, a doctor who specializes in physical medicine and rehabilitation, often partners with a team with other doctors, therapists and specialists to provide your care.

Our main goal is to improve your quality of life. Your physiatrist will work with you and your loved ones to restore your body - and your life - as much as possible.

Some conditions are treated only at certain locations.

There is a Running and Endurance Sports Injury program offered at Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Associates - St. Paul. These services help both elite athletes and recreational runners with issues that range from nagging soreness to acute injury. The team is led by Marie-Christine Leisz, DO, who is board-certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation, and sports medicine. 

The Congenital Neuroscience Clinic at the Golden Valley campus offers comprehensive services for people with congenital conditions, including spina bifida. Treatment is aimed at reducing the effect of the disease, improving health, increasing independence and reducing the need for hospitalization.
