Not all physical therapy is the same.

Whether it's from a sports injury, surgery, illness, or pregnancy and childbirth, it’s easy for your body to fall out of balance and into a vicious cycle of pain, weakness and dysfunction. That's where a physical therapist comes in.

Introducing Activcore, a full-service physical therapy and performance training center located in Denver, Colorado, just one mile from the popular Cherry Creek Shopping District.

Since 2004, Activcore has been transforming lives — one person at a time. Unlike the conventional PT model where you are treated like a number, Activcore provides you with a dedicated physical therapist who stays by your side, every step of the way on your journey back to an active, pain-free lifestyle.

Activcore also applies a more scientific, whole body approach to physical rehabilitation and sports performance, specially designed to help you gain exceptional muscle control for a smarter, balanced body.

A neuromuscular approach

Activcore is proud to be the nation’s leading authority in use of the Redcord suspension system for restoring muscle control and pain-free mobility. This evidence-based method delivers real results faster than conventional physical therapy and strength training. The difference is neurological. When your mind and body are fully connected, the effects are unrivaled. [READ MORE]

We're available to answer your questions and get you scheduled with a specialist for your particular needs.

Neuromuscular Activation is like flipping on a light switch to muscles that have gone dim due to injury, pain and inactivity. Utilizing the Redcord suspension system, your provider will take you through exercises that demand total body awareness and precise muscle control. There are slings and bungee cords to assist you with each movement. Similar to floating in water, this creates a weightless and painless environment where you can safely develop strength, stability and optimal neuromuscular control, regardless of your age or physical condition.

Neuromuscular Activation

Pilates can help optimize your performance through exercises that support the natural curves of your spine while balancing muscle strength with flexibility. Activcore offers Pilates via private sessions, semi-private sessions, and small group classes. Our specialists are trained and certified in Pilates and thoroughly engaged in your success. Depending on your needs, your Pilates Instructor may implement the following Pilates apparatus:

 

  •  Reformer

  •  Trapeze

  •  Barrel

  •  Tower

  •  Wundachair

Pilates Apparatus

A healthy pelvis provides the foundation for a smarter, balanced body. Your pelvis serves many important functions. As the center connection point between your upper and lower body, it is core to the way you move, breathe, and regulate normal processes like voiding. Activcore physical therapists are specially trained to help optimize how your mind and pelvis work together (in balance) so that you can regain control of your body.

 

  •  Reduce/resolve pelvic pain

  •  Develop core strength

  •  Restore bladder and bowel control

  •  Improve sexual function and sensation

Pelvic Health

Manual Therapy is skilled hands-on movements and manipulations of your joints and soft tissues intended to release myofascial trigger points, modulate pain, induce relaxation, improve range of motion, and reduce swelling and inflammation. Oftentimes, manual therapy can help prepare your body for more active interventions like exercise and strength training. Some examples of manual therapy include:

 

  •  Myofascial release

  •  Joint mobilizations

  •  Spinal manipulations

  •  Manual traction

  •  Stretch therapy

  •  Craniosacral therapy

  •  Lymphatic drainage massage


 

Manual Therapy

Trigger Point Dry Needling (TPDN) involves placing a very thin needle into muscles at their trigger point. This is an area where the muscle is tight and often tender. The intent is to contract and then release the muscle, improving overall flexibility and decreasing pain. TPDN can be a valuable treatment for enhancing neuromuscular performance by modulating myofascial pain and spasms, and preparing the body for exercise and activity.

Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) Golf Assessment involves understanding your golf swing mechanics and biomechanics to identify any neuromuscular weaknesses, movement limitations, and physical imbalances that can adversely affect your performance and potentially lead to injury. Whether you are a professional Tour player, a Junior golfer, or a weekend golf enthusiast, you can benefit from an assessment and training from one of our certified professionals to:

 

  •  Improve your golf swing mechanics

  •  Gain core strength and flexibility

  •  Enhance movement control

  •  Maximize neuromuscular performance

  •  Prevent common musculoskeletal injuries

TPI Golf Assessment

Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT) is a highly effective way to identify and treat inner ear disorders and balance problems. The main symptoms of vestibular dysfunction (vertigo, dizziness and nausea) can lead to impaired postural control and loss of balance. Our physical therapists are specially trained to apply hands-on maneuvers, exercises, and education to address and/or resolve these conditions.

Vestibular Therapy

Breast cancer rehabilitation is considered a specialized segment of physical therapy. It is intended for anyone who has just been diagnosed with breast cancer ("Prehab") or is at any point along a course of medical care including radiation, chemotherapy, alternative treatments, and/or surgical interventions (lumpectomy, mastectomy, reconstructive surgery, etc.). Our breast cancer specialists are fully equipped to help minimize the effects of oncology treatment. They are also specially trained to gently guide you into more progressive physical activities for a safe return to sports and everyday life.

A common source of headaches, jaw clicking, jaw pain, neck pain, and ringing in the ears is from the temporomandibular joint, better known as TMJ or TMD (temporomandibular disorder). These issues can lead to severe pain, limited function with eating and talking, and disruption of sleep and daily activities. A qualified physical therapist can help dramatically decrease the jaw symptoms, and in some cases eliminate most of the headaches related to the disorder.

Headache & TMJ Treatment

Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) Therapy is part of the professional scope of practice for physical therapists. It involves the application of a pneumatic cuff (similar to a blood pressure cuff) wrapped around either your arm or leg. The cuff is positioned above the muscles you intend to train. It is then inflated to a pressure that occludes approximately 50-80% blood flow. While the cuff inflates and deflates at a specified interval, you are asked to perform low resistance exercises to gently engage the muscles. The goal is to enable you to make greater strength gains while lifting lighter loads, thereby reducing the overall stress placed on your limb. Research has shown that BFR training promotes muscle gains and prevents disuse muscle weakness and atrophy (wasting away) after surgery, inactivity, and cast immobilization.
