Welcome to Summit’s Blog!
We are happy to introduce you to our new Summit Orthopedics blog. A blog enables us to share newsworthy and relevant content with you; designed to inform, enlighten, remind and occasionally entertain. There are so many great things happening at Summit Orthopedics that it would be silly to keep them to ourselves. So with our blog, we will aim to share content that supports our effort to help keep you well. We are doing our best work when you have the education and tools you need to continue to participate in all of the activities you enjoy, injury-free.
We hope this blog will be a place where you can:
- Get simple tips for keeping safe during activity
- Receive strengthening exercises important for injury prevention
- Discover products and trends that you might want to check out
- Stay informed about exciting changes and additions to Summit Orthopedics
- Talk about food choices important to building strong bones
- Take quizzes to test your knowledge
- Check out events you may want to participate in
And that’s only just the beginning…
Our blog is our direct communication channel, and most importantly it’s a forum for you to provide your feedback on what we are sharing or your opinions about what you would like to see. There will be simple feedback links through Facebook for just that purpose. And that’s the biggest reason we are excited to launch our new blog, so we can have a conversation and form a closer relationship with you.
Here’s to keeping you healthy!

Summit has convenient locations across the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area, serving Minnesota and western Wisconsin. We have state-of-the-art centers for comprehensive orthopedic care in Eagan, MN, Plymouth, MN, Vadnais Heights, MN, and Woodbury, MN, as well as additional community clinics throughout the metro and southern Minnesota.
We asked Amanda Feeney, DPT, OCS, a physical therapist at Summit Orthopedics, for her insights on how to create an ergonomic home office that’s friendly on your joints.
We connected with Dr. Andrew Thomas just before he left for New York a few weeks ago to serve COVID-19 patients. We are tremendously thankful for the sacrifice of Dr. Thomas, as well as that of frontline healthcare workers across the country.
Are your first few steps in the morning stiff and painful? We talked with Foot and Ankle surgeon Michael Castro, D.O., and learned his go-to exercise to help put a stop to start-up calf pain in the morning.
