Anyone who has ever sprained an ankle, suffered low back pain, been injured in an auto accident, or recovered from major surgery knows the impact that physical therapy can have on a life. Getting your body back to where it once was is an incredible gift. And that’s the only focus of the expert clinicians at CORA Physical Therapy.
CORA’s clinics in Hernando and Dunnellon—and throughout central Florida—offer treatment for general orthopedic and sports injuries, including concussions, pre-and post-operative care, vertigo, and balance disorders, workplace injuries, and workers’ comp evaluations, and post-COVID recovery programs.
In addition to treating patients referred by physicians, CORA accepts patients through direct access—no referral required—for people calling or walking into the clinic seeking physical therapy services. In fact, the clinics offer complimentary screenings for anyone at all of its clinics to identify the source of pain and pinpoint what CORA can do to help. If physical therapy treatment is indicated, the licensed clinicians can set up a treatment plan right away. According to Cindy Llanso, MPT, and Hernando and Dunnellon Clinic Manager, “If you don’t move it, you lose it! That’s why it’s so important to start patients who need physical therapy right away.”
Telehealth, Therapy in the Home and Post-COVID Recovery
For patients who cannot come into the clinic, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, CORA also offers telehealth visits and therapy in the home to ensure continuity of treatment.
“Telehealth gives you the ability to stay connected remotely and in real-time with a CORA clinician at a time when visits to clinics may not be an option,” said Llanso. “It’s a sense of control and choice over your health in your home environment with highly-trained clinicians at your fingertips.”
All of the CORA clinics now offer post-COVID recovery programs, as well, to help with pulmonary dysfunction, cardio impacts, fatigue, pain, and muscle wasting as a result of the disease or of inactivity and deconditioning due to the COVID shutdown.
Locally Focused Care, Backed by a National Team
CORA began in 1998 in Lima, OH. The company got its start with three clinics in Florida, and until about five years ago, that’s where most of its clinics were located. Through rapid growth and expansion, the company now operates more than 215 clinics in nine states. The CORA clinics in Hernando and Dunnellon came about from the recent acquisition of Hometown Rehab. These clinics, as well as eight others in Ocala and The Villages, offer a complete spectrum of outpatient physical therapy services.
“CORA’s tagline is ‘treating everyone right,’ and that really is a good way to sum up how we approach the outpatient PT business,” said Llanso. She explained that the company is committed to employees and their growth and wellbeing, as well as to patients, referral sources, and the community at large.
Care You Need, When You Need It
One of the things that sets CORA apart from other physical therapy clinics is their ability to see patients quickly. In fact, they strive to see every patient within 24 to 48 hours, sometimes even the same day. CORA serves the entire community, believing that everyone deserves access to physical therapy treatment. CORA is one of the top outpatient physical therapy providers in the country, with 4,000+ insurance plans accepted and payment options for patients without insurance.
