From golfing to gardening, playing tennis to chasing toddlers — your favorite activities give life purpose, fulfillment, and joy. Whatever your age, whatever your stage, you want to enjoy them for as long as possible.
That's where a physical therapist comes in.
Activcore's highly attentive, one-on-one treatment model allows you to get the most out every session. It also gives your physical therapist ample time to listen to you, focus on your individual needs, and fully apply the power of PT. That's a win-win for both you and your provider.
Activcore physical therapists also specialize in an area of study to become the very best at what they do. They're each on a clinical leadership track where they go well beyond what they learned in PT school. Some of their advanced credentials include orthopedics, pelvic health, postural restoration, Redcord, and sport specific rehabilitation and prevention. This elevated level of clinical expertise comes shining through at every touch.
The physical demands of athletes are uniquely different from the general population who do not engage in similar activity. Likewise, physical therapy for this special population should not be given a conventional approach. At Activcore, you will be matched with a physical therapist who specializes in treating athletes. Unlike the "typical" PT who probably doesn't even play sports, you will have a specialist who knows exactly what you are going through. Your physical therapist will assess how you move as it relates to your sport. This is a holistic approach to identify not only the site of injury, but the true source of any pain, weakness and dysfunction. Addressing the underlying cause is absolutely essential for healing an injury, preventing recurrence, and keeping you healthy and at a peak level of performance.
Research shows that physical therapy can be a viable alternative to opioid medication, cortisone injections, and surgery for relief of musculoskeletal pain. Activcore physical therapists apply a unique mind-body approach that gets to the underlying root cause of your symptoms. Whether you are recovering from a sports injury, rehabilitating from an orthopedic surgery, or trying to overcome chronic pain and dysfunction, you will have your own dedicated physical therapist by your side to safely guide you back to an active life.
Many physical events (injury, dental work, poor posture, bruxism, etc.) can disrupt how your TMJ works. Although the muscles surrounding it are very strong, the repetitive abnormal stress on the joint can lead to pain and damage. With TMJ disorders, it is common to experience severe jaw pain and clicking, headaches, ringing in the ears, dizziness, limited function with eating and talking, and disruption of sleep and daily activities. A qualified physical therapist can help decrease your symptoms and get you back to enjoying life again.
Activcore physical therapists are uniquely qualified to assess and treat yoga-related injuries. With expertise in movement analysis and additional yoga training, our physical therapists break down yoga asanas and determine the underlying causes of movement abnormalities and pain. Apart from injuries, they are able to design a program geared toward helping you progress your practice in a safe, effective manner.
Do you have pain or fatigue in your neck or back, slouch a lot, or find it hard to sit up straight? Whether you've been diagnosed with postural imbalances or scoliosis, Activcore's unique neuromuscular approach helps restore strength and muscle control to both improve alignment and correct dysfunctional movement patterns for sustainable results. There are also customized programs for adolescents and teens to teach them how to live and move better in their growing bodies.
A neurological physical therapist treats people with movement problems due to injury or disease involving the brain and nervous system. Common neurological conditions that physical therapists treat in outpatient settings include: Stroke, Traumatic brain injury (TBI), Multiple sclerosis (MS), and Parkinson’s disease. Physical limitations that arise from neurological disorders are different for each individual and will require a highly individualized treatment plan. At Activcore, we are well equipped to give you the time and attention needed to address your specific issues. We are also recognized nationally as a leading authority in the application of Redcord, a suspension exercise system designed to help you develop a smart, balanced body through the power of neuromuscular activation.
Vestibular therapy 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, loss of balance, and poor quality of life. Activcore physical therapists are specially trained to address these conditions by applying hands-on maneuvers, tailored exercises, and education.
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.). Whether you've been recently diagnosed with breast cancer, you've gone through a course of treatment, or you've been in remission for months, years or decades — our breast cancer specialists can help guide you, every step of the way on your journey to re-develop a smart, balanced body.
Lymphedema is swelling that occurs when too much lymph fluid accumulates in the areas in between cells of our bodies. It is diagnosed for one of two reasons. Either the body's transport capacity to remove the lymph fluid is reduced, or the fluid volume has exceeded the transport capacity of the body. Lymphedema is considered a specialized segment of physical therapy. It is intended for anyone who has just been diagnosed with lymphedema ("Prehab") or is at any point along a course of medical care.
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 bodily processes like voiding. The pelvis also protects your delicate organs, while anchoring the powerful muscles of your hips, thighs, and abdomen during physical activities. Many physical events (injury, surgery, pregnancy, etc.) can disrupt how your pelvis works. Over time, they can even hinder your brain's capacity to switch on the right muscles, at the right time, and with the right amount of strength. Known as neuromuscular deactivation, this process tends to pull you out of balance and into a vicious cycle of pain, weakness, and pelvic floor dysfunction.
Are your kids still having accidents at night?
Are they peeing their pants at school?
Do they feel embarrassed?
Are they experiencing low back or tailbone pain?
Urinary incontinence could be normal for their age but there does come a time when children should be dry during both the day and night. A pediatric pelvic health specialist can determine why they're still having accidents and how to help.
