OUR SPECIALTIES

It's more than physical therapy, it's Activcore

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 Activcore comes in.

Every Activcore provider specializes in an area of study to be the very best at what they do. They're each on a clinical leadership track where they go well beyond what they learned in school to earn advanced credentials in orthopedics, pelvic health, postural restoration, and sport specific rehabilitation and performance. You will feel this elevated level of expertise come shining through at every touch.

Furthermore, Activcore's highly attentive, one-on-one model allows them to refine their craft and fully apply the power of their knowledge, so that you get the most out of every session for the fastest results possible. That's a win-win for both you and your provider.

 

ORTHOPEDICS

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.

PELVIC HEALTH

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.

PREGNANCY & POSTPARTUM

There are many changes that happen to the body to accommodate the growing baby during pregnancy — the diaphragm is pushed up, the ribs are spread out to the sides, the abdominal wall is stretched and weakened, and there is increased downward pressure on the pelvic floor. Childbirth then results in addition stress and/or injury to the pelvic floor and abdominal wall. A pelvic health specialist can help.

PEDIATRIC PELVIC HEALTH

  • 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.

VESTIBULAR BALANCE THERAPY

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

Breast cancer rehabilitation 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, and to gently guide you into more progressive physical activities for a safe return to sports and everyday life.

THE OVERHEAD ATHLETE

It is common for athletes who play overhead sports (tennis, volleyball, baseball, softball, track and field events, etc.) to develop pain or have an injury at their shoulder and elbow. But that doesn’t mean the problem starts or ends there. For many, the underlying cause of arm injuries is a lack of coordination and strength of the structures closer to the body, including the shoulder blade, spine, pelvis and hips. At Activcore, we have trained specialists who look at all of these pieces as a whole in order to effectively and safely help you return to your sport.
