Liza Piper Attends CoreFirst Strategies Course

Liza Piper, Physical Therapist at Northern Rehab Physical Therapy Specialists' Genoa clinic, recently attended a course in Milwaukee, WI on CoreFirst(TM) Strategies for Optimum Function. This 3 day lab intensive course focused on facilitating an Automatic Core Engagement, ACE(TM), for efficient postural alignment and movement. The course stressed the importance of having an automatic and properly timed initiation of core muscles and having the strength and endurance of those muscles. Efficient posture, body mechanics, core initiation, strength, and endurance are key to preventing injury with work or recreational activities.

Your Right to Choose

The decision of where you go to receive treatment is
yours. If you have a specific therapist or practice you
would like to go to, you should let your doctor or
insurance company know this. Not all physical
therapists or practices are the same and the choice
of your provider is yours.
