Meet the Team
Dr. Luke Jakubowski
Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr. Luke Jakubowski graduated from the University of North Dakota and received his Doctor of Chiropractic from Northwestern Health Sciences University. He has been serving patients in the Edina, Southdale, and South Metro area for 15 years. Dr. Luke was inspired to become a chiropractor after being a lifelong athlete who experienced a long list of injuries. The injuries were bad, but not nearly as bad as the guidance, rehab, and advice he got about how to manage them. This sparked a deep passion inside him to become someone who could be a resource to athletes and active individuals to help bring them back from, and prevent, injuries. Due to his intense passion and knowledge, Dr. Luke has been able to help thousands of people over the last 16 years. He enjoys being able to teach people how their bodies work. Additionally, he loves being able to feel and see immediate change through thorough soft tissue work, adjustment, and proper rehabilitation protocols. He is grateful that he can use his hands and mind to create physical, mental, and emotional changes in his patients. Dr. Luke has a particular interest in athletic mechanics. He performs IMJT, Graston, Trigger Point Therapy, Kinesio Taping, and PNF stretching to help create mobility in the soft tissues. His greatest specialty in practice is his knowledge of athletic movement patterns and how to re-establish and advance those patterns through rehabilitation to help prevent injuries. He has experience in post-surgical rehabilitation of knee, ACL injuries, rotator cuff and hip surgeries, acute injury management, and correction of movement patterns to correct chronic issues associated with an active lifestyle.
Dr. Adam Sagedahl
Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr. Adam Sagedahl graduated from St. John’s University and received his Doctor of Chiropractic from Northwestern Health Sciences University. He has been serving patients in the Edina, Southdale, and South Metro area for 16 years. Dr. Adam was inspired to become a chiropractor when he first started utilizing chiropractic care for himself as a high school athlete when dealing with sports injuries. While studying biology in undergrad at SJU, he knew he wanted to do something in the healthcare field. He later decided to become a chiropractor after seeing multiple family members have huge success overcoming both recent and past injuries with chiropractic care. He witnessed this when other, more traditional medicine approaches didn’t help. He enjoys seeing his patients feel great after dealing with pain, but even more so is when patients are then able to go on to do the things, they’ve always wanted to do but never thought they could. Things such as, taking part in an athletic competition or just being able to keep up with their children or grandchildren. Dr. Adam has a particular interest in treating lower back pain and disc injuries as he has personally experienced this debilitating condition in the past. He believes chiropractic care and rehabilitation can go a long way in preventing unnecessary back surgeries. He also sees many patients who have desk jobs and deal with the common symptoms that go along with that such as headaches, neck and back pain. He is a certified RockTape provider. RockTape can be used to treat sports and non-sports injuries, including shin splints, plantar fasciitis, runner’s knee and back pain. RockTape microscopically lifts the skin away from the muscle and fascia below, creating a decompressive effect.
Dr. Katie McMahon
Dr. Katie McMahon graduated from Hamline University in St. Paul, MN with a double major in exercise science and psychology, and then went on to receive her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from the University of Jamestown Physical Therapy Program in Fargo, ND.
Dr. Katie has been serving the people of Carver, Meeker, and Hennepin counties in which she enjoys helping them learn and put into action the benefits that physical therapy can bring to their lives.
She was inspired to be a physical therapist through her interest in body mechanics for both sport-related activities along with everyday movements. Getting to know her patients and providing relief from pain, stress, or fear that can be caused with movement in order to reach their specific goals (both big and small) are the things Dr. Katie enjoys most about physical therapy treatments.
Dr. Katie is interested in preventing and addressing injuries, pain, or any other limitations that may impact her patients lives. She has experience with treating a wide range of ages from infant to geriatric including athletes in gymnastics, track and field, and football, along with pre/post surgical procedures, vestibular/vertigo symptoms, back pain, stroke related deficits, and workplace ergonomics.

Edina, MN Rehabilitation
Physical therapy can help you restore physical function or make it better through special exercises and tools. We use a wide range of therapies to address various musculoskeletal conditions.
Some treatments that our physical rehabilitation clinic offers include manual therapy and targeted exercises. In some cases, we can use modalities like hot and cold therapy, ultrasound treatment, and laser therapy.
We can also have you undergo occupational therapy as part of your rehabilitation. This therapy can help improve the way you work and play. In turn, you’ll be able to continue your daily activities like traveling and sewing. We’ll help you set specific goals and choose therapy methods for the best results.
Rehabilitation isn’t just about regaining physical ability. Along with physical therapy, we’ll recommend changes to your diet and exercise routine. These changes can help you heal and stay active after rehabilitation. By undergoing nutritional counseling, you can learn ways to keep your condition from reoccurring.
Pain treatment is another important part of our physical rehabilitation services. It provides the best care for your body aches so you can keep doing what you love. Plus, pain treatment can help you become more active in rehabilitation. Hot and cold therapy, traction, and massage are some methods we use for this treatment.
Depending on your condition, we can recommend assistive devices to you. With these tools, you can do tasks easily. Walkers, braces, and splints are assistive devices you can use.
