Athletic Optimziation



When your body is working properly, running is awesome.  When it isn't, running is emotionally frustrating and physically destructive.   Running is a full body sport.  Your entire body needs to work properly or you will have accessory motions in your hips, knees and feet that will wear away at the cartilage, ligaments and tendons.  At Core, we will use our advanced evaluative process to fully understand why your body isn't working for you.  We will fix it and help get you back on the road, this time, pain free.



NamastHEY THAT HURTS.  Yoga should be a challenge, but it should not be painful.  We love working with yogis.  You are the most in tune with your bodies and you know when something is wrong.  The thing you don't know is that you can do something about it.  You know all of the right things to do, but your body won't get you there.  That is where Core PT can help.  We do manual therapy.  For a yogi, our job is easy.  Tell us what you can't do and we will correct the structural problem that is keeping you from your goals.  Your yoga practice will excel without these frustrating limitations.  We look forward to being part of your journey.

Cross Fit

You are giving it 100% everyday.  The problem is your body only has 90% to give you.   Without proper alignment and control of all of your joints, your are showing up to the MOD with a compensated and accident prone body.  This is something you can't afford.  You can hide it with medications for a bit, but eventually the problem will just get too bad.  Things will get serious and begin breaking down.  It does not have to be this way.  Core PT has a an evaluative system that finds where your body is working and where it isn't.  When we find out what is not working, we will identify the problem and fix it the right way.  It will be a lot more fun to work out with 100% of you showing up and no pain to slow you down.


Concussion Rehab

After a concussion, your body goes through a lot.  The symptoms of a concussion are horrible.  The therapists at Core PT are well trained in cranial mobilization.  This is an intervention that can put you back together so that the concussion can heal fast and the symptoms can go away.  After you are better, we will make sure that everything is working like it used to and get you back to the life you want.

The Training Room

You did everything right.  But when you train, your body still hurts.  Come to the Training Room for answers.


Smart people who love to exercise, but pain is getting in their way of performing better.  Power lifters, cross fitters, triathletes, and everyone else who needs to be better than their body is allowing them to be.  Pain has caused them to plateau or stop training altogether.  


You come and do what you do best.  While you are working we will be watching, studying and understanding why your body can't get you to your goals.  We make our adjustments and we make your body work better and pain free.


In a regular physical therapy practice, you are being evaluated while performing at a sub-maximal level.  If the pain starts at mile 15, how can they see a problem if you are at rest?  We need to see the problem develop during your training.  At Core, we use a specialized evaluation and treatment process.   We hold "athletic rooms" at our Clifton Park office during specific hours and at area training facilities by request.  If you would like to attend one of of our training rooms or schedule one of our therapists to come to your facility, please call for immediate assistance so that pain-free can be part of your training progression.
