Tom Tardif, DPT, PRC, CSCS, CIDN
Founder of Resonance Physiotherapy & Sports Performance
Tom is the Twin Cities leading Physical Therapist who helps active adults, athletes, & runners return to the workouts they love without going to the doctor, taking pain meds, or getting injections.
Tom founded Resonance Physiotherapy & Sports Performance out of frustration with how the current healthcare system works. He was tired of seeing everyday how quality of care has significantly declined. People have become labeled as body parts and diagnosed based on costly imaging without ever having a doctor even touch them. He was tired of hearing stories of being offered unnecessary surgeries, injections, and medications prior to trying physical therapy.
Resonance Physiotherapy & Sports Performance was founded to provide high quality care that is one on one with a Doctor of Physical Therapy. He strives to get to know his clients on a personal level to truly be able to help make life changes that will promote pain relief and long-term self management. He is dedicated to helping each patient reach their recovery goals and get back to active living without pain medications and unnecessary surgeries.
Tom graduated with a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Franklin Pierce University. He has obtained several certifications including; Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist from the NSCA, Certified Integrative Dry Needling from the Institute for Dry Needling, and Postural Restoration Certified from the Postural Restoration Institute which is the foundation of Resonance Physiotherapy & Sports Performance.
The concepts from the Postural Restoration Institute® (PRI) have made the most impact on how he practices and can view the body as an entire system not just individual body parts. PRI concepts allow him to integrate services with other healthcare professionals for optimal care.
When Tom is not in the office he enjoys spending time with his wife Alyssa, son Oliver, and daughter Noelle. He enjoys spending time outdoors and exercising.
