Christina Henkel received her Masters of Arts degree in Physical Therapy from The College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, MN in 2000. Since then, she has been working in sports medicine and outpatient orthopedics where she has helped her patients rehabilitate from both spinal and extremity injuries and surgeries. In addition to general orthopedics, Christina has specialized training in postural dysfunction, sports rehab, advanced manual therapy techniques, women's health and vertigo.
Christina is excited to work in an environment that focuses on overall wellness. She enjoys expanding her knowledge of natural nutrition and exercise while continuing to live and learn about the mind-body connection with our health. In addition to practicing yoga on her own, she has also taken courses in applying yoga and Pilates concepts in a therapeutic setting. Her main focus in the clinic is listening to her patients. She enjoys getting to know each of her patients personally and designing a treatment program according to their individual needs.
Christina is originally from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Growing up in that area has given her an appreciation for the outdoors and for staying active. She currently lives in Lakeville with her husband, her three wonderful children and an abundance of animals.

Christina Henkel - Physical Therapist
"I mainly went to the chiropractor for my daily headaches and lower back pain. I had previously been on several different medications for my headaches. Prior to chiropractic care the headaches would go away for a short period of time, but would always return. I met Dr. Genrick at the Burnsville Center and she recommended that I see if I had a chiropractic problem. I came in for a no charge exam. After six to eight adjustments and cranial work, my headaches are less frequent and less painful." G. M.
