Method Rehab, a division of Walker Methodist, is re-imagining the rehab experience for a new generation of older adults. Our goal is to never say, “No, you can’t,” but always, “How can we help you get there?” Our doctors of physical therapy want to help our patients sustain their independence, thrive in their environment, and have a voice in their wellness journey.
Method Rehab was born through a passion for providing comprehensive, compassionate care for older adults no matter where they live or what their financial situation is. Our team will find a Method to treat the whole person through every stage of life.
Method Rehab is housed within our Walker Methodist locations, and is available to Walker Methodist residents and team members, and to the public. You'll find us in many locations throughout the Twin Cities and in Wisconsin.
Need care at home? We provide in-home rehab, powered by Lifespark.
As a division of Walker Methodist, our doctors of physical therapy are trained to meet the unique needs of older adults. Because of this we offer services that are not always available at traditional rehab centers.
Areas of specialty include:
"I was told I’d never walk again. At the time, I was 88 years old. I couldn’t bear weight or walk. My hope of getting back to my normal self was fading. Then, physical and occupational therapists began working with me on mobility. Almost a year later, I can walk using a walker with some help. I can stand and move by myself. My life has improved, and I have hope again. My therapists have given me a new will to go forward with life."
"In rehab, my therapists helped improve my balance and overall confidence. They provided positive reinforcement about my stature and gait while using my walker. When I was discouraged, they also provided perspective. A simple suggestion not to worry made my life simple, and I appreciate that. I’m in a better place after working with the team. Thank you!"
"Adjusting to a new city, apartment, and physical needs (after shattering my right femur and receiving a Parkinson’s diagnosis) made personalized help necessary. Sessions focused on becoming more comfortable with my independent living. The therapists were kind and patient, reminding me what I needed to do to be safe and why. I learned how to use exercise machines properly, go up and down steps safely, close the washing machine door, and get into my bed. I also learned exercises I can do on my own to improve my strength and lessen pain. I am most grateful for the improvement I have made and the encouragement from my therapists in this process. They were a gift to me!"
