    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

Athletic Training Rehab

Getting rehab done on my neck using the cervical traction device in the athletic training classroom.

I was lifting weights early last week and as soon as I left the wellness center I could not move my head to the right. My neck was completely locked in place when I wanted to look to the right. After sitting in class all day I went to the athletic training room to get looked at. They explained to me that my upper trapezius had contracted so tight together in a defense mechanism that it had locked my vertebrae together at the C2, C3 level. The verterbal facets were now catching when I tried looking to the right…So after four therapy sessions using a heating pack, isometric contractons, muscle energy techniques, as well as the cervical traction device (locks your neck and head in place and stretches the muscles in your neck for 30 minutes to release tension on the vertabrae), pictured above, I am back to my normal self with full range of motion in my neck!

Our athletic trainers are highly skilled and do a great job at treating injuries! Just another perk of being an athlete at the College of St. Scholastica!
