Core physical therapy: the specialty clinic to change its name to corephysio
FOR RELEASE May 21, 2014
Core Physical Therapy, the Bellingham-based physical therapy clinic, will now operate under the new name “CorePhysio.”
2014 marks the 10th anniversary of CorePhysio, which was the first physical therapy clinic to open in Fairhaven in 2004. In 2010 they expanded and moved to their current location on 12th Street.
“To mark our first decade, we are updating our name to CorePhysio, which is modern, unique and a universal term for physical therapy throughout the world”, owner and physical therapist Elizabeth Hampton said. As orthopedic manual therapists, CorePhysio clinicians integrate their clinical experience with the scientific research supporting cutting edge care for sports, spine, orthopedics and pelvic health. Hampton emphasizes that collaboration with the client during this process is absolutely key. “Whether we are working with a post-operative ACL repair, a post-partum mom or an athlete trying to perfect their sprints, each client has very different needs. We understand how to protect and safely challenge clients in any stage of rehab, from initial healing to high level performance, providing the right care at the right time.” Hampton reports that many consumers visit PT clinics before deciding where they want to receive physical therapy, which Hampton encourages, noting “Smart consumers are selective and spend their PT visits wisely.” Orthopedic manual therapy requires specialized physical therapist training to test nerves, joints, muscles, ligaments and movement patterns to find the driver of a client’s condition rather than just treating the symptoms. Because CorePhysio has 45 minute visits 1:1 with a PT, there is ample time for questions, manual therapy and precise movement education and strengthening.
CorePhysio has received local and national recognition through the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) which has played a key role in their growth and success. Their success story was presented to Congressman Rick Larsen, the Bellingham City Council as well as SBDC’s recent 30th Anniversary.
CorePhysio regularly offers a variety of community educational experiences to let clients, referrers and the community experience their unique approach to physical therapy. These events, called CorePhysio Interactive, couple education with experiential learning. The first, Ultrasound Imaging for Core Training on June 9th, enables participants to experience real time ultrasound – to watch and learn how to properly contract their abdominal muscles. “We want consumers to walk away with helpful information they can apply to their lives right away”, says Hampton, “and every offering from Ultrasound Core Training to the Computerized Spin Scan is an educational experience for each participant.”
Through June and July, CorePhysio Interactive events will be offered every other week.
The transition to the new name, including rebranding of materials and changes to facilities, will be completed by June 2014. The community’s first look at the rebrand will be during the renowned Ski To Sea race and festivities. CorePhysio is proud to sponsor two teams this year, including one in the competitive Whatcom Women’s Division. Hampton adds, “Our name and look may be changing, but our commitment to exceptional clinical care remains the same.”
