ProCore Physical Therapy’s Four Areas of Expertise

To read more, click on individual technique.

Graston Technique – The Graston Technique is an Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) technique that helps to breakdown myofascial adhesions that cause pain and restriction.  It is typically used on repetitive motion injuries, post-operative conditions, and tramatic injuries.

Rock Tape Kinesiology taping – Rock Tape can be applied to any part of the body to increase blood flow, drain swelling, and decrease pain.  Depending on its application Rock Tape can also be used to compress or decompress an area, as well as activate or deactivate a muscle group. Rock Taping can be used on sprains/strains, tendonitis conditions, low back disorders, rotator cuff problems, just to name a few.

Functional Movement Screen (FMS) – The FMS is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. By screening these patterns, the FMS readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. These are issues that can reduce the effects of functional training and physical conditioning and distort body awareness.

Post Rehab Program – Our Post rehab program is offered to existing patients who need to continue to improve strength, stability, and mobility under supervision of a physical therapist.  It is an exercise based program only.

What Our Clients Say

After suffering a motorcycle accident with serious injuries, I went to ProCore Physical Therapy, where I was fortunate to meet Greg Stemkowski and his staff. They were compassionate, caring, professional and incredibly competent! Well on my way to a full recovery !

Al Moroni

Easy to get to, open-space facilities, great parking, flexible scheduling, no waiting time! A great place to go to with listening music that makes for a calming, relaxing, pleasant venue.

What better way to start your PT session, especially when greeted with “How are you feeling? How are you doing today?” The staff is wonderful! Warm, friendly, confidence-building, personable! In 2013, on recommendation from a neighbor, I went to ProCore where I found the staff and their assistants to be attentive to my needs, vigilant in making sure I did my exercises correctly, reassuring….committed to restoring my ability to return to every-day routines and my enjoyment of leisure activities. I also appreciated when Charles, with the use of hands-on models, would take the time to explain and help me better understand the nature of my injury and what I needed to do in PT and at home. With professional expertise and his use of different modalities to address my physical limitations from rotator-cuff surgery, the quality of my life ( I am 73 yrs. old) slowly began to show marked improvement with each visit.

Presently, I am back at ProCore, working on improving strength, mobility and use of stairs since my full knee-replacement in the Fall of ’14. I am confident I will soon be back to biking, gardening and traveling in the near future.
Kudos to Charles, Greg and the rest of the staff at ProCore in Valley Cottage.
