Understanding the Transformative Power of Physical Therapy

By Stephen Dunn, Holistic Physical Therapist at CORE

What is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy is a specialized branch of healthcare that primarily focuses on treating conditions related to the musculoskeletal system. While many perceive it as a series of exercises or treatments for injuries, at CORE, we view it as a transformative journey. It's not just about alleviating pain; it's about enhancing one's overall quality of life.

  • Reduce reliance on pain medications
  • Avoid invasive surgeries

Addressing the Root, Not Just the Symptom

Instead of merely addressing the symptoms, we delve deep into the root causes. Our holistic approach ensures that we understand the complete picture, allowing us to craft personalized treatment plans for each individual.
