Welcome to the web site of Connecticut Orthopedic Rehabilitation Associates (CORA). Our practices are concerned with the prevention of disability and with the evaluation, maintenance, and improvement of the functions of the musculoskeletal and neuromuscular systems of traumatically injured individuals. Evaluation procedures may include tests of sensorimotor, circulatory, and neurodevelopmental status, as well as the assessment of muscle performance, joint motion, and levels of independent function.
Treatments at CORA are designed to assist the individual in achieving realistic goals consistent with his or her functional capacity by improving joint function, muscle strength, coordination, and endurance, developing motor skills, and relieving or managing pain. Physical therapy is implemented through preventive intervention, direct patient care, instruction of patients, families, and supportive personnel, and coordination and consultation with other health-care professionals.
CORA offers the unique advantage of personalized care. It is our goal to provide quality outpatient physical therapy that is cost-efficient and effective.
Physical Therapists, or P.T.s, are health care professionals who evaluate and treat people with health problems resulting from injury or disease.
With roots as far back as 3000 B.C., physical therapy came to the U.S. in the early 1900’s as a profession started and practiced largely by women.
