Not all rehabilitation programs are the same. At PDR Clinics, we put the patient’s needs above everything else. And, as an extension of your care as the referring professional, we believe it is important to keep you informed of their progress on a regular basis by sending you reports on their program and resulting outcomes.

At PDR our physicians are specialty trained in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. As such, unless otherwise specified, each patient we see receives a comprehensive evaluation prior to receiving a treatment plan. Each patient’s program is specifically designed to meet their needs. Additionally, our Advanced Practice Therapists, who receive on-going training to ensure mastery of current, evidence-based therapies, work closely with each patient during their 8-12 week program.

PDR Clinics utilizes MedX equipment, the gold standard in isolated spinal strengthening necessary for the treatment and reduction of chronic neck and back pain, as well as other proven therapies to ensure the best outcomes possible.


Focusing on Function Versus Pain


Our “LBP Functional Treatment Tool” is a unique illustration of PDR Clinics’ back pain treatment philosophy that focuses on treating function, versus pain. This tool is used to ensure a consistent treatment approach between our physicians, occupational therapists, and physical therapists, and to provide a consistent message to the patient. Educating our providers about this approach, as well as educating the patient, has helped our patients let go of their “pain” and focus on restoring their “function”.

The primary goal of our treatment approach is to restore a patient’s function so that they may avoid costly surgical interventions, ongoing use of medications, and continued use of medical services. To do this, our focus is on functional restoration both of the spine and of the whole body.


Cognitive Behavioral Coaching

PDR recognizes that certain patients may have psychological barriers that may prevent them from the best possible outcome when it comes to rehabilitation. As a result, we have implemented our Cognitive Behavioral Coaching (CBC) program to help address this need in qualified patients. Our program is free to our patients and consists of a number of educational programs that address common barriers in order to increase their overall outcome success.


PDR is a HealthPartners Designated Medical Spine Center

Based on PDR’s success in the nonsurgical treatment of neck and back pain, HealthPartners insurance has established PDR as a designated Medical Spine Center (MSC).
