Matthew Hofkens, DO
Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
I am a physiatrist: a physician who specializes in physical medicine and rehabilitation with a diverse training background that enables me to treat a variety of patients. My focus is non-operative care of musculoskeletal injuries and the non-musculoskeletal aspects of sports medicine, including return-to-play decisions, concussions, nutrition and injury prevention. I enjoy initiating (and maintaining) an exercise and rehabilitation program for patients, from the elite athlete to the novice weekend warrior. I use musculoskeletal ultrasound in a variety of clinical applications (guided injections, evaluation of shoulder disorders, and evaluation of overuse and tendon injuries). I am a Certified ImPACT Consultant (CIC) and serve as the team physician for Spring Lake Park High School.
