Kim Gordon

MPT

Kimberly Gordon, MPT, graduated from Mayo Clinic's School of Health Related Sciences with her Master's degree in Physical Therapy. She began practicing in an outpatient sports medicine clinic in Sarasota, FL, where her caseload consisted of orthopedic and post-surgical clients, including older adults with torn knee and ankle ligaments, total joint replacements, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, and gait dysfunction. She went on to manage a branch for that company in Bradenton, FL. Upon moving back to Rochester, MN, she spent time working in a local nursing home, helping to develop their short-term rehab program to increase the number of joint replacement patients in the facility and to better manage these patients as a team in the nursing home. She then moved into a home health physical therapy position, bringing innovative ideas to the patient returning from a hospital or nursing home stay after surgery or trauma, including many with new joint replacements.
She currently works at both the Rochester ActivePT office and the Plainview ActivePT office (managing the Plainview office) where she specializes in treating orthopedic patients both in and out of the therapy pool. Her specialty is treating pelvic, hip, and knee patients, and the majority of her patients come with women's health, orthopedic, and sports medicine complaints.

Kim has over 16 years of experience treating primarily orthopedic patients, with 12 of those years specializing in sports medicine. Kim also has numerous hours of continuing education, including SI joint dysfunction, shoulder rehabilitation presented by Kevin Wilk, pelvic floor training through the Herman and Wallace Pelvic Institute, and a certification course in Pilates training. She also taught a Pilates class at the Rochester Athletic Club and has developed specialized classes for the athletic club, including Back School, return to Pilates after rehabilitation, and prenatal Pilates.

Kim's area of specialty is the pelvis, hip, and knee. This includes pelvic floor dysfunction, low back and hip pain, total joint replacements, and SI dysfunction. She has trained for >7 years with Aquatic Therapy University, achieving lead instructor status under their extensive instructor's curriculum. Kim offers specialty training in the following through her affiliation with ActivePT:
o Pilates
o Back School
o Osteoporosis

Kim lives in Rochester with her husband and two children. She enjoys playing soccer, biking, and running and has completed numerous half and full marathons.

Sacroiliac joint dysfunction is a source of pain in 10-27% of suspected patients with chronic low back pain, and 42% of women report suffering SI joint pain during pregnancy. It is highly likely that the outpatient therapist will encounter numerous clients with these symptoms. SI joint dysfunction is not well understood, and treatment techniques vary widely. However, aquatic therapy can be an ideal environment for treatment of SI joint pain.

Video Runtime: 63 Minutes, Learning Assessments: 4 Minutes

The number of female athletes continues to grow and so has the injuries to the female athlete. Unfortunately, we have seen injuries that are more prevalent in the female athlete population. These include a higher risk of ACL tears, stress fractures, patellofemoral pain, and ITB pain. A rationale for aquatic therapy for the female athlete is that it allows the athlete to train using a similar movement pattern to that found on land without incurring the impact forces, and thus significantly reducing the repetitive loading of the musculoskeletal system. This course is appropriate for physical therapists, occupational therapists, and athletic trainers that work with the female athlete, both in the rehabilitation setting and training setting.

Pregnancy can be an exciting time for most women, but for others, because of all the physical changes that occur, it is riddled with pain. Numerous anatomical and physical changes create challenges for the physical therapist to treat. The therapist must treat pregnant women differently than other patients, taking into consideration both the mother and the baby. This class is appropriate for the physical therapist and occupational therapist, both in outpatient and inpatient settings.
