So much love to you all!
I am a dancer and a performer in the Twin Cities. I had a bit of a freak accident, onstage, in June of 2016. Dr. Warner and his team not only reconstructed my left knee (and tendons), but the care that I received before, during, and for long after, was the best care I have had in my life. I am no rookie when it comes to injury, or medical care in many aspects. This was a traumatizing moment in my life, and I would not have made it through without them. Patience, respect, and understanding is what they give readily. I’m not a fan of doctors, but this team changed my opinion. I am now dancing and performing again, getting to perform at venues around the country and at home. I have a new appreciation for what I love, and I have them to thank for it. So much love to you all!
“As an athlete, I understand the profound impact that an injury can have on a patient’s life and well-being. My goal is to return people to activity as quickly and safely as possible, whether that’s training for an ultramarathon or walking the dog around the block.”
Most hockey injuries are caused by outside forces or a single traumatic event. For example, a sudden shift in direction can tear a knee ligament or pull a groin muscle, and a fall can cause a separated shoulder or a concussion.
Fans of autumn beware! With that lovely crispness in the air can come an increase in the potential for back pain.

Standing desks promise many benefits, including better overall health and less back pain. Research is ongoing into what, if any, benefits a standing desk might actually have, but if you’re used to sitting for long hours and staring at a computer each day, you know how tough all that sitting can be on your back and neck. Can a standing desk help?
