Welcome to Core Physical Therapy!
At Core Physical Therapy, we use a full body approach to treating dysfunction. We are aware that a person's body will make changes within itself to compensate for anything that alters its function or form. For this reason, it is essential to attend to any parts of the body that contributing to the problems that bring you to us. Our full body approach requires an extensive physical therapy evaluation, an equally broad base of knowledge and a variety of treatments including manual physical therapy, and a combination of traditional and functional exercises. We appreciate your input - as much information as you can offer us about your situation as well as feedback regarding your treatments. Please make a point to inform your therapist if there is ANYTHING that makes you uncomfortable during your sessions with us.
Equally important to your information and feedback is your effort to maintain and promote your own health. Without good nutrition, hydration and rest, tissue repair is impossible and healing will be slowed. Activity WITHIN your current level of tolerance is also beneficial.
At Core, we continually educate ourselves and each other. We do this with formal coursework, group in-services and case study reports in order to provide the best service we can. We also believe it is important to provide our patients with as much information about their bodies and their dysfunctions as possible. The more you know and understand, the more you can help yourself to heal. Please feel free to ask questions!
Each treatment at Core is on an individual basis in a private room, without interruption. Appointments are made for specific times and for a set duration. Please try to be on time and we will strive for the same. Since our approach is individualized, it is important that you attend the appointments that you schedule.
If you need to cancel or reschedule, please do so 24 hours in advance. All missed appointments and cancellations without proper notice are subject to the full cost of your visit. Repeat missed appointments will lead to discharge from our office. Our individualized approach is for your benefit, so we appreciate every effort on your part to attend consistently. Advanced notice allows us time to fill schedule openings from our cancellation list. Please take responsibility to know the rules and limitations of your insurance plan.
Office charges for those paying directly without insurance coverage are as follows:
$45.00 for 20 minute session/$85.00 for 40 minutes/$115.00 for 60 minutes
All payments are due at the time of your visit.
We look forward to working with you. For more information on treatment strategies and philosophies, please visit our website at www.corephysicaltherapy.com.
