Take a quick virtual tour of Minnesota Movement's space and you'll notice right away that we are not set up like your standard chiropractic clinic. We put a high priority to getting you moving from PAIN to PERFORMANCE. Therefore, our office reflects that!
That's right! We are beyond excited to bring Dr. Claire Jessen onto the team here at Minnesota Movement! Not only is she certified in SFMA and ART but she loves working on yogis, runners, and really all sorts of athletes!
Billy is a well accomplished Triathlete who competes locally here in Minnesota but also on the National Stage where he came up short of the podium in Cleveland last year. We love seeing how you MOVE! Visit www.minnesota-movement.com to learn more about how we can help you move your best!
As a chiropractor here at Minnesota Movement I'm constantly working with my hands. Because of this flexor dominance unbalance in my forearms, I am constantly using RockTape's RockFloss and RockPods to alleviate the tension. Questions? Let us know below! Want to give this a try?

Most shoulder impingement cases are due to Biceps Tendonitis/tendonosis, which causes pain and clicking in the front of your shoulder. This pain is especially bad when doing overhead movements like swimming or CrossFit/lifting exercises. To address this; we need to eccentrically unload that biceps tissue in order to continue through normal ranges of motion but WITHOUT pain!
In an attempt to stick to my philosophy of "Fix the Why" - sometimes it isn't the fault of your low back or neck for why your low back or neck hurt! If your mid spine (your thoracic spine) is rigid into a flexed position that forces your more mobile areas like your low back and neck to compensate.
I know, I know, I know. Dead Bugs are boring. I agree! That doesn't change how awesome they are for helping engage a neutral core though! Why I like this variation is because it helps to depress the rib cage - a common fault with most dead bugs that I see people doing.
Whew! How's that for a title of the exercise?! There's a lot going on in this one and if you don't already have the Glute Lunge Press Up dialed in you MUST start with that before throwing any band or restriction at the other leg!
Ankle sprains aren't anything to take lightly. They generally take +6 months to feel "normal" again and often times much longer than that before they are actually 100%. This banded exercise helps to build the trust back in your peroneus/fibularis muscles (all three of them)!
Brugger's Relief Position is something that EVERYONE who sits at a desk too long can utilize. By retracting and depressing your scapulae, you put your shoulder at a more advantageous position to move better! Oh, and no more sore achy upper traps too! Grab a band and put it on your desk.
Get those shoulder blades down and back! It's important with these Y's and T's that you are NOT feeling like you're shrugging your shoulder up to your ear. The muscles that we're focusing on should be retracting and depressing that scapula. Record yourself or have someone watch to make sure you're doing it properly!
Learn how to touch your toes! Oftentimes, "tight hamstrings" aren't tight at all and stretching them further isn't the answer. Sometimes your brain doesn't "trust" your body to go down any further so it locks up your hamstrings. To build this trust back we can activate our core using pattern assistance.
Running is pretty straight forward. I mean, it's mostly in the sagittal plane - so our mechanics should reflect that. . Check your gait and if this applies to you - give this one a shot before you take off for your next run. Three sets of a million.
Pardon the guest host, Pete and the raspy voice for a minute. Say what you want, the dead bug still has its place as staple core exercise. This isometric variation limits the ranges of motion of arms and legs that might cause a dead bug to be painful.
Sometimes all you need to do is roll around on the floor and move with intent. Give this quick little movement challenge a try and let us know in the comments how it goes for you! As always; visit our website at www.minnesota-movement.com for all your chiropractic care needs!
The knee is the dumbest joint in the body. All it is truly designed to do is go forwards and backwards. When it is forced to go sideways or into rotation, it's usually not the knee's fault! Typically we can blame that on the hip/glute or the foot/ankle.
This little tool from Trigger Point Therapy is AMAZING! Use it as a foam roller with the blocks or take it off and use it as a mobility stick! Best part is that all of the little rollers are removable so the whole stick is customizable!
Forefoot pronation isn't always a bad thing! Often times when we assess a squat or gait pattern, we see someone walking on the outside of their foot. Outside, meaning their pinky-toe side. This makes an unstable foundation of the foot as if you were walking on ice skates!
Simple answer is - We're Different! Don't get me wrong, a 5-10 minute appointment is fine. IF you're getting results. What we do here at Minnesota Movement is take the time to assess exactly what's going on with YOUR situation in order to provide the most effective and efficient treatment strategy to get you feeling better faster and stay better longer.
The popliteus is a tiny little muscle that can often times be over-called-upon by the brain to flex the knee. Yes, that is ONE of the actions of this muscle, but it is not the best muscle for that job! When this happens chronically, the popliteus becomes a little angry and needs some mobility or "release."
I'm a huge fan of external cues. I'm talking about using carrots and strings here! Guiding patients in the direction that they need to be. This application of RockTape is helping guide a more efficient knee pattern for stability.
Do you sit all day? Do you have "bad posture?" Here's a quick way that you can actually exercise while you sit! Training your core to hold you down so that your low back doesn't have to is key to preventing and helping low back pain during or after sitting for long periods of time.
If I say the word "posture" my patients immediately sit up as straight as they can. However, most of that extension is coming from the lumbar hyperlordosis and not from the T spine. As a society we NEED more extension in our thoracic spine in order to not make that "good posture" feel like it's forced.
