What's Your CORA Story?
I went to CORA to rehab chronic shoulder pain. What impressed me most is how super clean the facility is and the staff is great. Brandon has been great. I have been getting dry needling and have been very pleased with my progress and reduction in pain! I would highly recommend the CORA Cleveland clinic to anyone in need of physical therapy.
I am a 67 year old wife, mother and grandmother who had foot and ankle reconstruction surgery on my left foot (12/09/2021). My surgeon finally released me to go into physical therapy at the beginning of March after being in a cast and boot for more than three months (non-weight bearing for the majority of that time). By the 10th (of March) I was ALL IN at CORA Physical Therapy in Cleveland, TN. Tim Mertz, the clinic manager, IS JUST OUTRIGHT AMAZING! He is so firm but gentle in his insistent direction and encouragement! One of the most amazing things that I observed at CORA is the software that so accurately tracks each person's progress. It uses data driven algorithms that are not just based on what the physical therapist SEES in the patient's progress, but also every two weeks their software is designed to ask specific targeted questions of the patient themselves, which becomes part of the algorithm for the assessment of progress. I did a lot of research before I had this surgery, but I had no idea how lucky I would be when I was referred to Tim and Crystal (and ALL OF THEIR STAFF who are equally AMAZING)!
I've always been very physically active but developed plantar fasciitis in BOTH feet. This facility was great! It was very clean, and social distancing was effectively practiced. The staff was friendly and efficient, and my therapist (Brandon) was just wonderful. He was encouraging a persistent, and within 2 months my symptoms had abated. I could not be more satisfied with my results. Many professionals told me that it might take months - if not years- for this issue to resolve. I believe that CORA's intervention really shortened the duration of the problem, and I highly recommend this facility.
This is a very clean and organized facility. Appointments are on time and the staff is professional. Brandon is very skilled in his therapy regiment, he was able to get to the root of my pain, and I feel so much better. Both he and Olivia are compassionate and very capable. I will be suggesting to my doctor to recommend them to anyone who needs PT.
