Our Top 3 Unique Services

You may be familiar with the routine treatments of physical therapy that you have done for yourself or seen loved ones experience. But did you know that not all therapy offices are the same in terms of treatments? At Core PT, we have unique services to ensure you are getting the specialized help you need to reach your treatment goals. Here are the top three services we offer and what you may not know about them.

Myofascial Release

It is pronounced “miyo” meaning muscle and “fasha” meaning connective tissue. It is a type of therapy used to reduce acute or chronic pain in tight areas of tension. However, because patients don’t always know exactly where the pain is originating, myofascial release therapy covers a general area of muscle that may be causing the pain. There are typical trigger points where the pain is coming from, but they can be difficult to locate precisely.

This assists in the functionality of your muscles, nerves, organs and blood vessels that have become damaged or worn down. The therapy is performed hands-on with pressure applied to the treatment area to release or loosen the tension. Your therapists will be able to make conclusions about the damage in a way that x-rays and MRIs cannot.

Craniosacral Therapy

This is another therapy that’s primary purpose is to make you feel better whether you are suffering from chronic or acute pain. It focuses on relieving tension in the bones of the head. Primarily, the sacrum which is the bone in the lower back of your head in addition to your spinal cord. These are the membranes that your PT will focus on extending from the skull and down the spine to your tailbone.

This is a hands-on approach and a manual therapy that can help your entire body relieve pain. The physical therapists will listen to your primary areas of concern and gently focus on relieving those areas. Because each person’s needs and response to this therapy is different, the PT will work to establish a routine treatment specifically tailored to you.

Women’s Health

One of the areas of focus that we are especially excited about at Core PT is our specialty services designed to help women. Our Physical Therapists will create a program that helps with common women’s issues such as: Endometriosis, Infertility Problems, Incontinence and Pelvic Floor Pain. If you suffer from one of these conditions or more, there may be a treatment option for you.

See what unique services we can offer to help you feel yourself again. In the state of Iowa, most insurance companies don’t require that you have a doctor’s note to see a physical therapist, so feel free to reach out to us today!

    This is the only type of therapy that has been able to help me, and I've tried everything! I don't know what I would've done if I hadn't found them.
