Orthology Clinics Open in YMCA Sites across the Twin Cities

January 17, 2019

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 17, 2019--Orthology, Inc., is partnering with the YMCA of the Greater Twin Cities to place Orthology clinics in 22 YMCA sites in Minneapolis, St. Paul and surrounding communities. These Orthology clinics offer professional and personalized physical therapy to both YMCA members and the general public.

Orthology’s approach to treatment is evidence-based and emphasizes surgery avoidance and rapid recovery. With a sole focus on musculoskeletal health, Orthology clinicians use their hands to alleviate pain and help patients regain flexibility, mobility and resiliency.

The first Twin Cities YMCA-based Orthology clinics opened at the Burnsville, Eagan, Maplewood, Southdale, River Valley and St. Paul Midway Y locations. Additional locations will include Ridgedale, Shoreview, Lino Lakes, White Bear Lake and others later this year. Patients seeking services from Orthology can book appointments by calling (952) 222-5769 or at www.orthology.com. Orthology accepts most major insurance plans, including Aetna, BlueCross BlueShield, HealthPartners, Humana, Medica, Medicare, PreferredOne, UCare, UnitedHealthcare, UMR and others.

“Our partnership with the YMCA of the Greater Twin Cities represents an exciting local collaboration in fitness and health, which are an important part of Minnesota culture,” said David Moen, M.D., executive chairman of Orthology. “Our goal at Orthology is to help people recover quickly and stay active. We think the right kind of care enables the body to do what it wants to do, heal itself – our therapists just remove the barriers. Our patients get better 30 percent faster than the industry average, and our techniques actually take cost out of the health care system. Our partnership with the Y expands our ability to help more people and drive down the cost of health care.”

“We are partnering with Orthology to further provide our community with innovative health and well-being services,” said Glen Gunderson, president and CEO of the YMCA of the Greater Twin Cities. “Our organizations are committed to ensuring everyone has access to personalized care that is tailored to the specific needs of each individual.”

This partnership will more than triple Orthology’s current clinic footprint in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. Orthology operates five clinics in New York City and four locations in Long Island, N.Y.
