Jared Eickhoff, DPT
As a Doctor of Physical Therapy, Jared Eickhoff is passionate about spending time with his patients and truly getting to know them. He views building rapport as a pathway to providing the best treatment he possibly can. Seeing his patients return to the activities they performed prior to their injuries provides Jared with a great sense of satisfaction in his work.
His interest in and appreciation for physical therapy started when he was a young boy and his grandmother had a stroke. He could remember his parents saying his grandmother went to physical therapy and they retaught her how to walk.

Running & Athletics
When Jared isn't treating patients, you are likely to find him outdoors either running, kayaking, downhill skiing, biking, fishing, hiking, or camping. Living in Duluth for seven years allowed him to explore some of the best trails and outdoor scenery Minnesota has to offer. After being a three sport athlete in high school, Jared competed at the collegiate level for cross country, eventually transitioning into marathon running. He has completed three marathons, with a Personal Record of 3:00:11.

He also gave back to the local Duluth community during school by providing pro-bono PT services through the CSS PT program to those who could not afford the appropriate health care they needed.
Did You Know?
Jared's first job was out on the farm picking rocks at the age of five, so he's no stranger to hard work. Jared’s personal motto is: There’s nothing wrong with getting strong. He firmly believes that most of the time if you can just build some strength and endurance, a lot of your pain will likely to go away.
