A LITTLE ABOUT ME


Tricia Imker has been practicing physical therapy since 2012.  She has been with OSI her entire career, and truly believes private practice is both the best environment to work in and receive care as a client.  One of her favorite parts about being a physical therapist in an orthopedic setting is seeing patients of a variety of ages, conditions, and needs.  She believes that listening to the client is one of the most important aspects of delivering quality care.  A typical visit will involve an evaluation, some form of hands on treatment, and the development of a collaborative, specific plan for each individual to achieve their goals.  Tricia’s background in athletic training combined with her orthopedic speciality in physical therapy allows for a comprehensive treatment approach to all conditions.  She has a specific interest in the treatment of runners and cyclists, but loves treating athletes of all ages and specialities.  She can’t wait to get started on helping whatever is bringing you to physical therapy and get you back to what you love!

Spare Time Activities

Tricia loves doing anything outdoors to keep her active!  Whether that is hiking (the most memorable hike was rainbow mountain in Peru), golfing (favorite course she’s played is Pacific Dunes), running, biking, or simply throwing bean bags around on the patio.  She loves travelling and learning more about this amazingly diverse world.  She spends most of her time outside of work with her husband, son, and dog – who fortunately share a lot of the same interests. She is also always up for supporting local sports teams, especially the MN Lynx, Twins, and Gophers.
