Core Rehabilitation physical therapists specialize in a wide variety of services and treatments to provide the best care. A list of sample conditions that we treat:

Muscoloskeletal Injuries

Musculoskeletal injuries are a range of disorders involving muscles, bones, tendonsblood vesselsnerves and other soft tissues. The most common term used to describe these disorders is Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI). Some examples of musculoskeletal disorders are Carpal Tunnel SyndromeTendinitisTenosynovitis and Bursitis.


We have three certified lymphedema therapists treating lymphedema and other swelling and cancer related issues at all three Core Rehabilitation locations. We specialize in complete decongestive therapy (CDT) including manual lymph drainage (MLD), compression bandaging and garments, and decongestive exercise.

Lymphedema: Also known as lymphatic obstruction, is a condition of localized fluid retention and tissue swelling caused by a compromised lymphatic system, which normally returns interstitial fluid to the thoracic duct and then the bloodstream. The condition can be inherited or can be caused by a birth defect, though it is frequently caused by cancer treatments, and by parasitic infections. Though incurable and progressive, a number of treatments can ameliorate symptoms. Tissues with lymphedema are at high risk of infection. If not treated or managed correctly, lymphedema will worsen and can cause major disfigurement, infection and inability to walk or use effected extremity.

Treatments we may employee:

Trigger Point Needling

Dry needling is a technique physical therapists use to treat myofascial pain. The technique uses a “dry” needle, one without medication or injection, inserted through the skin into areas of the muscle, known as trigger points.

Other terms commonly used to describe dry needling, include trigger point dry needling, and intramuscular manual therapy.

Dry needling is not acupuncture, a practice based on traditional Chinese medicine and performed by acupuncturists. Dry needling is a part of modern Western medicine principles, and supported by research

In cases when dry needling is used by physical therapists, it is typically a technique that is part of a larger treatment plan.

Physical therapists use dry needling with the goal of releasing or inactivating trigger points to relieve pain or improve range of motion. Preliminary research supports that dry needling improves pain control, reduces muscle tension, and normalizes dysfunctions of the motor end plates, the sites at which nerve impulses are transmitted to muscles. This can help speed up the patient's return to active rehabilitation.

Lumbar and Cervical Decompression

Highly specific mechanical stretching to lumbar and cervical spine. For vertebral space and herniated disc symptoms.

Kinesiology Taping

Application of multistretch tape with the goal to decrease swelling, increase muscle tone, increase circulation, and increase joint stability 

Manual Therapy

Consists of joint mobilizations, and a variety of soft tissue mobilization techniques

Personalized corrective exercises

Patient specific exercise prescription to target exact deficit or limitation

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization

Use of various tools to increase blood flow and increase mobility to specific soft tissue

Other Modalities

"My name is Lee Roskop and I was having problems with 2 years of chronic pain in my right hamstring as well as pain in my left ankle for about the last 6 months. Following x-rays and an MRI, you said the best course of action was physical therapy and referred me to Steve Biorn and Noah Burton at Core Rehabilitation. I recently completed my 6 weeks of therapy with them and am pleased to report that I no longer have any pain in my right hamstring or left ankle during even the most strenuous running. In addition, Steve and Noah found problems with my left calf muscle and the arch of my left foot were contributing to my problems so treated both of these areas as well.

Steve and Noah did an outstanding job. I give them my highest recommendation and would suggest them as the first choice for anybody in need of physical therapy. Not only were they both tremendously knowledgeable, they communicated what was going on with my body in a way that was easy for me to understand. I responded well to their approach to treatment which was a perfect balance between both manual therapy and exercise. I also appreciated how they varied the types of exercises and the difficulty of the exercises as I made progress. It kept the therapy from becoming a stagnant experience and provided the right amount of challenge for me. What made the experience even better is that both Steve and Noah are cool guys who are very personable and have a great sense of humor. They set a comfortable tone in their office that really contributed with all the other factors I’ve mentioned to make it a very positive experience. Thanks for the great referral. Steve and Noah were top notch and their help was exactly what I needed."

"I spent 5 months in rehab at Core and honestly didn't want to leave when my surgeon said I was back to normal. It was bittersweet because I came to think of them as friends - friends who were there to help me get well and make it as fun and enjoyable as possible in the process.

If I ever need rehab again, there is ONLY one place I will go – Core Rehab. And it is the only place I recommend to my friends. You won't find better people anywhere!"

"I broke my wrist in a car accident and after the bone healed I was put into physical therapy and my Dr. recommended Core Rehabilitation. Thankfully so, they did an excellent job understanding my pain level, comfort, and use of my wrist. Steve and Noah were very nice and personal, they didn’t treat me like some random person. They cared a lot and did an excellent job strengthening my wrist and getting all of the range of motion back. I highly recommend Core Rehabilitation to anyone with an injury and needs physical therapy!"


I have been seeing Steve for about two months now for physical therapy of my shoulder and just after 2 visits I could feel a big improvement. I went today and saw Erin for my knee and she too was amazing. The whole staff is very friendly and very knowledgeable in the art of physical therapy and rehabilitation. I highly recommend the Doctors here. So if you are looking for a place for physical therapy and rehabilitation look no further. Thanks Core Rehab for your excellence in everything you guys do.
