Chad makes it his business to stay on the leading edge of treatment including dry needling and pain neuroscience without abandoning treatments that have stood the test of time like manual therapy, exercise prescription, appropriately used modalities, and proper education to patients.
In order to stay on the cutting edge, you also have to actively progress the profession; this is a passion of his. He loves to stay involved with all aspects of Physical Therapy advocacy at the state and federal level. He wants to elevate the profession so all physical therapists can provide the best possible care for Minnesota's residents and throughout our wonderful country.
In 2014, He didn’t know to have his arms in the air like his future logo. He knew he wanted to include mountains or rock climbing in the logo and on the website since climbing is his favorite hobby.
Chad Hergott has been practicing Physical Therapy for patients in the communities of Ham Lake, Blaine, East Bethel, and greater metro area for over 13 years. He has successfully treated musculoskeletal pain from acute to chronic, headaches, TMJ, and different neurological conditions including stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease.
He does not have a favorite body part to treat, but rather enjoys treating people conservatively, which means before they try surgery to fix their aches and pains. Most specifically, he enjoys seeing patients that may have had less than ideal experiences in the past with Physical Therapy. As an independent provider he can completely focus on the patient and give people the necessary care to fully address their symptoms. He often says if his patients follow his directions and do not get the results they want under his care, they can be confident that physical therapy alone will not correct their pain and dysfunction. If surgical intervention is needed to correct the problem his patients will be a step ahead of the rest and will go onto having great post-surgical outcomes with him as well.
He has a special interest in dizziness and vertigo. He completed his graduate thesis project on vertigo and has had significant training directly from the most prominent vertigo physical therapists in the country. Other special training includes trigger point dry needling; he has been performing dry needling since 2017 and finds it significantly elevates patient outcomes.
By using all the tools available to physical therapists including specific manual therapy techniques, targeted exercises, and appropriate use of other modalities (tools) to decrease pain including Electrical stimulation, iontophoresis, and ultrasound he can help most of his patients achieve their goals. When you get the body moving as its designed, it is amazing how the pain can disappear. He also finds significant joy in educating patients about their symptoms so they can make the best decisions regarding their own care.
He has enjoyed the past 13 years and feels like his work supporting the communities, patients, and profession he loves is just getting started!
