Michael Milnes Rochester MN: Football Injuries

Michael Milnes is a Rochester, MN physical therapist who has been in practice for twenty years. A graduate of the University of Minnesota, he treats a wide range of injuries, helping his clients to regain most or all of their full range of motion.

He treats a lot of sports injuries, including injuries from skiing accidents and bicycle crashes. But he treats more football injuries than from any other sport. “It’s such a rugged game,” he says.

A former college football player himself, whose career was cut short by a torn ACL (anterior cruciate ligament), it disturbed him to read, in the summer of 2017, about the high occurrence of CTE, or chronic traumatic encephalopathy in former NFL players. “It’s a degenerative brain disease most often found in people who have had repeated head trauma,” he says. “They studied the brains of a hundred former football players, and they found CTE in ninety-nine of them. Absolutely stunning.” Unfortunately, he added, CTE is not the type of football injury to respond to physical therapy.

Michael Milnes works out of an office located in a restored Victorian home in the historic district of Rochester MN.
