What is Outpatient Physical Therapy?
Physical therapy uses exercises, hands-on massage, heat therapy, and other treatments to restore or prevent the loss of your abilities and improve mobility and independence. Your physical therapist works closely with your physician to deliver a comprehensive and tailored plan specific for your recovery. Additionally, our therapist will give you instructions on how to continue your progress at home with exercises and self-care.
Conditions We Treat
Your therapist has worked closely with your physician to devise a comprehensive plan which uses the latest proven techniques and technologies to maximize your recovery. Physical therapy has been shown to be an integral component to a full recovery by helping you regain mobility skills and return to your daily activities or job more quickly. Our providers have experience in the rehabilitation of:
- Back, spine, and neck pain
- Broken bones
- Follow orthopedic procedures such as joint replacement or arthroscopic surgery
- Neurological concerns
- Sports and exercise injuries
Depending on your needs, you’ll work with a team of specialists at The CORE Institute who collaborate to deliver your care. This cross-team approach means you have experts from different fields focused on your wellness and healing.
Rely on your physical therapy team to communicate with your referring physician, so your treatment plan is updated as your health needs change, and you receive the most effective, safest care possible.
