I saw Dr Kevin Wall through Health Partners, think he is really from St. Paul
Ramsey clinic, St. Paul, now called Regions Hospital. He was good, supportive
very occupational medicine focus.
However, I got my diagnosis, (pronator teres syndrome) from

They will lead you through the process to get an appt with a doctor. The general telephone number for Mayo Clinic is 507-284-2511.
I highly recommend Dr. Peter Amadio, hand surgeon, of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester,Mn. He has done 5 different hand surgeries for me all successful and one for kienbock's disease on my son also successful. A very caring and talented surgeon. Mayo Clinic appointment nu. 507-266-5800

I am in St. Paul. I highly recommend Orthopaedic Sports Inc or OSI. They have offices in Lake Elmo/Woodbury, White Bear, Maplewood, Forest Lake and Stillwater. I have seen Maureen Scanlon who is a hand/arm therapist. She is wonderful.
I highly recommend OSI which is a PT center in the twin cities. I see Steve (back) in West St Paul and Maureen in Maplewood/Stillwater and White Bear Lake. OSI= Orthopedic Sports Inc.
I didn't get the original message for this, but I'm in Roseville. My therapist is Sue Wagner at Metropolitan Hand Therapy and Rehabilitation. They are in downtown St. Paul: 651-223-5406. I believe she is a PT/CHT. I've been very pleased with her. She spent a long time diagnosing my problems and was able to recreate all the painful spots I was having. We've done a number of things that have improved my condition (although it's not gone yet). There's also a bunch of other therapists at that clinic who would probably be good too.
In the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, I was quite happy with my PT/CHT (certified hand therapist) Sue Wagner at:

I have a friend named Karen Kullman. The last I heard she was with Body Balance Healing Center: 651-222-2218. (400 Selby in St. Paul, right off of 94 and Kellogg/Dale) I know her personally and she is great.
There is also a WONDERFUL massage school that specializes in ALL kinds of massage. It is Sister Rosalind School of Massage. Since they have supervised students, the cost is lower. 651-228-0960 (St. Paul). They also have locations in Highland Park, Burnsville and Maplewood.
The 3rd alternative I could find is The Minneapolis School of Massage and Body Work. (220 Lowery Ave NE in Mpls.) 612-788-1320
I am willing to bet both schools will have some ideas about Rolfers and may even have a few themselves. (Also, you could try it at the schools for less and if you do not like it, you're not out too much money.)

My Chiro's name is Dr. Tim Whelan in White Bear Lake, MN. He has been practicing for only about 4 years or less. I think that is a good thing, in my case, because his recent schooling included dealing with RSI versus just the standard car accidents and hereditary problems. He charges $240 for 12 sessions, cash. Otherwise the fee is higher because he has to type up all the insurance co reports, etc, plus the delay in payment. He truly has the goal of eliminating pain in people with RSI. I highly recommend him.
I have Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, wrist and elbow tendinitis, ulnar nerve damage and Myofascial Pain Syndrome. I HIGHLY recommend my Sports Medicine Gp in White Bear Lake, MN. His name is Dr. David Thorson. I do not know if he is taking on new patients right now, though. It cannot hurt to call. 651-426-6402 (option #3). He is with MinnHealth. I have seen 2 decent ortho guys. One is Dr. Jeff Husband. He is affiliated with Park Nicollet Clinics. He is very blunt and fair. The other is an IME doc, HOWEVER, he is very good at surgery and is fair. His name is Dr. Mark Falconer. I do not know what clinic he is affiliated with. You could call EvaluMed (in Edina) and ask. Your best bet is to find a Sports Medicine GP. They tend to know more about RSI's and dont cost the insurer as much as a specialist. If you need the name of an AWESOME physical therapy clinic in the Cities, I recommend OSI or Orthopaedic Sports, Inc. They have offices in Woodbury, White Bear, Stillwater and Forest Lake. Worth the drive. (I recommend Maureen and Steve P.)
