These solutions range from medicine to physical therapy, all of which work to restore your mobility and function. In turn, they can help improve your overall health and quality of life.

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.

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.
What Our Patients Say
The attention to detail is very much appreciated. Other chiropractors I have been to in the past seem to give everyone the same prescribed exercises and routines. The work I do here at the LifeClinic feels much more customized to meet my specific rehabilitative needs. It also helps the staff is extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. I would enthusiastically recommend the LifeClinic to anyone who wants to feel better!!!
The doctors here go above and beyond their duty to not only make you feel better but to function better in every aspect of your life. Each of my visits have given me more mobility and a better ability to not only train but enjoy it again.
