Our History

Core Physical Therapy was founded on the premise of movement is life. Core’s philosophy looks at the whole person, integrating the wisdom of conventional treatment with the physical and mental benefits provided by alternative therapies.

This philosophy promotes the greatest health possible through proper, effective and comfortable movement, and enhancing the body’s ability to heal itself.

Core Physical Therapy currently has five locations:

  • downtown in the Seattle Tower
  • downtown in the Columbia Center
  • Belltown
  • Ballard / Greenwood
  • Shoreline / Edmonds

The staff at Core Physical Therapy has been helping individuals of all ages and abilities achieve their maximum potential since 1996. Its blend of superior patient treatment, highly trained staff, individualized communication and variety of services, yield extraordinary results for the patient and physician alike.

Core staffs are specially trained to address the full spectrum of patient needs and to treat the individual in a professional, private setting. We assist patients beyond pain relief, working to help them live, work and play with greater confidence and ease.
