Real comprehensive care

Dr. Kotulski and Jodi Kunkel, N.D. believes in helping your body heal itself through conservative therapies, nutrition guidance, lifestyle modification and continued monitoringwithout drugs or surgery. Their methods to promote your body’s own natural healing abilities include:

Functional orthomolecular medicine

This involves all-natural nutrients (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, etc.) to help prevent and/or treat diseases and mental conditions (depression, hypertension, ADD, metabolic syndrome, etc.) that can result from a biochemical imbalance or deficiency. Dr. Kotulski is currently the only doctor in and around Mankato who offers orthomolecular functional medicine.

IV nutrition therapies

To address spinal and musculoskeletal conditions, these include prolotherapy, facet injections and neural injections. For detoxification and improved antioxidant protection, Dr. Kotulski offers IV glutathione injections , B12 and neutraceutical injections to promote health and healing.

Neuromusculoskeletal medicine/osteopathic manipulation

Dr. Kotulski uses gentle therapeutic, hands-on manipulation to improve and restore joint function and reduce pain. He can address chronic pain, headache, upper and lower back pain, muscle and joint pain and more. His treatment methods include cranial osteopathy, myofascial release, counterstrain, muscle energy and the latest balance techniques.

Spinal decompression

Includes cervical and lumbar decompression, plus ultrasound, infrared therapy and electrical stimulation therapy.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy

Natural hormone replacement is safe, effective bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to help restore balance and harmony to your body.

Therapeutic lifestyle enhancement

If you have diabetes, hypertension, fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue, you know how it can disrupt your daily life. Focusing on conservative treatments and lifestyle changes, Dr. Kotulski creates an individualized program designed to help you manage your symptoms so you can get back to your daily routines . . . in less time than you think.

Corporate wellness and coaching programs

When employers and employees achieve optimal health, there are myriad benefits. These include increased productivity, improved morale, reduced absenteeism, reduced turnover, lower healthcare costs and fewer on-the-job mistakes/accidents – for companies of all sizes.

An on-site laboratory

Not only does the on-site lab make getting tests and screenings more convenient and efficient, it allows Dr. Kotulski to ensure more accurate testing and diagnosis. His in-office testing includes:

  • Allergy testing
  • Nutrition testing to identify micro- and macronutrient deficiencies
  • Chemistry evaluations to evaluate the risk of cardiovascular disease or diagnose a kidney disorder, pancreatitis, liver disease or gall bladder dysfunction
  • Hormone evaluations for men and women
  • Digestive testing for occult infections, gut flora imbalance and more
  • Neurotransmitter evaluation to determine deficiency in important “chemical messengers” that regulate brain, muscle, nerve and organ function
