Why PT?

If you’ve never been to physical therapy, you may wonder why it’s important and if it can even make a difference. At Core PT, we believe in the power of therapy so much that we’ve dedicated our entire careers around it. With the increasing number of people affected by the opioid epidemic, non medicinal pain treatments are more important than ever. But don’t just take our word for it, hear what our patients have to say.

“What pain you have that you do not think will ever go away can and will be dealt with by a Core therapist. It’s not done by maybes, only expert hard work. If you think it will happen it will. Many thanks to Justin for putting up with me.” – Bob L.

Reduce Risk of Long Term Opioid Use

Pain is one of the main reasons people seek out medical help. As you may be aware, many of us desire a quick fix solution for our day to day problems. Unfortunately, this mindset of prescribing pharmacological solutions at the first sign of pain has contributed to the opioid epidemic. Physical therapy should be a first step towards managing acute and chronic pain. Additionally, research has shown that using opioids for long term pain management results in unwanted side effects for many.

“Excellent, professional staff. Ellen has restored my ability to live a normal life nearly pain-free through caring physical therapy and following a number of simple therapeutic exercises. I strongly recommend Core PT!” – Joel O.

Neck and Back Pain Treatment

Pain and injury to the neck and back is one of the most common forms of pain we see. The good news is that we are able to help patients get either relief or complete healing from the pain. Physical therapists are able to evaluate your pain in a one-on-one setting and implement exercises that you can do to heal long term.

“The physical therapists at Core Physical Therapy are, in my opinion, the best in the city. They are capable of taking even severely injured or traumatized tissue and returning it to health…& never once has anyone said to me, ‘No pain, no gain.’ Trust these people, do exactly what they say, and you’ll thank me!!” – Michael N.

Women’s Health

Some may be surprised to know that physical therapists can specialize in women’s health. We are able help with a variety of pain types like mastectomy, pelvic floor and painful intercourse. While many think their pain is something they just have to live with and take medication for, we are able to provide alternative options that promote healing and wellness. Because we know quick fixes are not for the long haul.

“Lindsay is awesome! She helped keep me comfortable during the last few months of pregnancy. I would highly recommend!” – Emily K.

Spine Pain

Lower back pain is so common that you likely know someone with it or are someone who suffers from it on a daily basis. Research has shown that those who seek out PT as their first treatment option are less likely to pay for high cost medical services and have lower opioid use. We are able to help those with a variety of spine pain including: headaches, bulging disc, thoracic pain and more.

Our goal is to help you live life on your own terms. Our highly skilled team is able to create a treatment plan tailored specifically to your needs and pain points. If you’re in pain, let us help. Contact Core PT today.
