Dr. Emily Kolaga PT, DPT, CKTP, CSCS
Dr. Emily first became interested in physical therapy while being rehabilitated from a soccer injury. This experience prompted her to pursue a degree in Physical Therapy, graduating from the UND with a Master’s degree in 2002 and Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2005. Her personal interest in sports, training and wellness also lead her to certification as a Strength and Conditioning Specialist.
Dr. Emily’s focus is on providing high touch physical therapy that looks at the person as a whole – beyond just their injury or illness. Dr. Emily is an Expert Myofascial Release Practitioner, and also enhances her physical therapy treatments with advanced energy therapies. “Both of these types of therapies engage the body’s natural ability to heal. Engaging the body’s innate ability to heal, coupled with an individualized physical therapy rehabilitation plan allows our patients to integrate their healing back into their lives.” She has a special interest in treating women’s health issues and has expertise in working with patients who are wanting to get or are pregnant, and who are challenged with pelvic floor dysfunction. Dr. Emily also has extensive experience in dealing the rehabilitation of complex or chronic injuries and illness.
Dr. Emily created Trimotion Rehab, LLC in 2004, with the focus of transforming traditional rehabilitation practices to heart-centered, high-touch Physical Therapy. She believes that patients should be involved in designing a treatment plan that not only addresses their injury or illness, but also factors their lifestyle and personal goals into their treatment. She understands that in order for the patient to heal, they must choose the outcome they are trying to achieve, and that they must actively participate in their own therapy and healing. Dr. Emily believes that a healthy life-style is at the center of the healing process. She has built a team that integrates movement therapies and mind-body therapies into treatment plans. “Our team works together, sharing and integrating approaches and therapies that are best for our patients’ well-being. Here we are a family of therapists working to let patients know that they can change their circumstances and improve their lives.”
