When should I Think About Getting a physiotherapy (physical therapy)?

A Message From Specialist Dr. John, dpt…

Are you frustrated by sports related pain? Are you disappointed because your pain is holding you back from your workouts?

Years ago, as I worked with my active adults and athletes, I found a common theme in their injuries. When they were injured, they would go to the doctor and were told to stop training, take medication, or have an injection. These were all short term fixes. When they went back to their training after these interventions, the pain came right back. These athletes were lost and not sure what to do to keep their pain away so they could continue to train. I set out to educate these active adults and athletes on making smart decisions about when to train and when to ‘back off’. I have also found that these active adults and athletes are not sure what they should be doing to prevent injuries from happening. It has become my mission to keep as many athletes competing at the highest level possible during their races.

Of the thousands of patients we’ve treated, we’ve found the “perfect” physical therapy must contain three items:

why symptoms dont improve

After our systematic approach determines why the pain hasn’t improved, we start the patient pathway, where our first stage is removing your pain.


You see, everyone with injuries in the South Bay area asks us the same questions…

  • Why did this happen?
  • Am I going to deal with this forever?
  • How long until it goes away?

We have good news: you don’t have to “live with it”. There is still more that can be done and we’re here to show you the way.

Most people get stuck trying to make a decision about what to do next. They go days, weeks, months (even years!) without taking action.

The one thing we can guarantee is that by doing nothing, your pain won’t get better.

So the next important thing is to take action.

What Past Patients Have Said

COR is, without a doubt, one of the best things I have done for myself. I started COR 5 years back and since then, I have pushed myself both physically and mentally to limits I could not have imagined – and I have certainly reaped the rewards.

2) The atmosphere is very positive
3) Staff and management of COR are extremely professional

COR helped my back go from excruciating pain to being able to hike and exercise again. I can’t thank COR enough! If you’re in pain, this is the first place to go!

Lulia Carmello COR Review

Dr. Sam is not only a great professional but one can tell from the first interaction that he really cares about you as a person! What really blew me away was how he goes the extra mile for his patients.

My husband got into a pretty bad accident and we found COR online for his PT. It had good stars so we decided to try it! We LOVED IT! Dr. Erin is awesome, attentive and dedicated. He is so much stronger and we are very happy after every session. I would definitely recommend to anybody!
Lauren Rice

I thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in PT at COR. I had the pleasure of receiving treatment from Erin. Every session was very helpful. I went from not being able to walk with my body properly aligned, not being able to run, having difficulty with ankle mobility, to running, taking 5 mile hikes and enjoying the use of my ankle again!

As an athlete, I was looking for physical therapy that would address my concerns and take me to the next level. After working with Dr. Sam for a number of sessions, I am pleased to report that I am finally back to doing all the activities that I want to, and more!

John Mullen is a terrific physiotherapist. He works exceptionally well with adolescents by making them feel comfortable, heard and valued. If your child is dealing with an injury you want them to see John.

Bill Bradley

COR Physical Therapy Dr. John Mullen diagnosed and treated me for shoulder pain. Very professional with great explanations, instructions for home exercises in addition to office treatments and massages that got my shoulder back in pain-free shape. Highly recommend COR!

Catharine Geoke

Dr. Sam is super awesome. You can tell he genuinely cares about your personal improvement from week to week and has the knowledge to trouble shoot your issues. He always makes me feel comfortable, and is super friendly, which is a plus while he’s causing me terrible pain for my benefit.

I really enjoyed getting physical therapy at the Cor facility. Dr. Erin was great, knowledgeable and very personable. She made me very comfortable and explained my diagnosis very well. I would recommend Cor to all my friends and family.

Wayne Boles

5 stars for the trainers and physical therapists at Cor. Starting a year ago in April I figured I would give it a month, see how it goes. Almost a year later and 212 classes total, you could say I am enjoying it. With mixes of cardio and weights you get a little bit of everything, not too much of the same.

Gennady Farber

they put me back onto the proper ‘bending” shape in no time. Thank you.

Audra Meng

I went to COR for a hamstring tendonitis injury from rock climbing. Dr. Erin Cameron taught me the right exercises, stretches, and how to use deep tissue massage as therapy. She put me on a path to recovery, and I could clearly feel results from our sessions. My climbing recovered, and I’m able to use these techniques for continued improvement.

Manohar Nayak

Highly recommend this place. Lovely and caring staff!

Marlene McNew

Knowledgable, conscientious, very helpful, caring staff..I would definitely recommend it!

Mark Farr

Have had a great experience at COR. Highly recommend.

Professional, good credentials, accessible and experienced with athletes, including competitive swimmers.

Very professional and family oriented environment

Leora Lawton

Dr. John gave me the instruction on how to swim differently given a shoulder injury, and to avoid further injury.

Jaspreet Singh

Dr. Sam is great. Helped me a lot with my knee.

Its the best place in Santa Clara for your physical and mental well being. Boot camp is all well planned according to specific needs of clients. Must join it and experience it urself. Specially evening batch. I love that .. miss u John, Mike , Chris and all buddies..

Dhananjay Mehta

This is a great place for both your medical conditions as well as group workouts. I first visited COR when I had ankle sprain. What makes COR special is the care and attention you get from your doctor. After completing my sessions I joined COR fitness classes. It’s similar to CrossFit except for the risk of injury.

Mahesh Reghupathy

I started consulting Dr John for a rotator cuff injury that was troubling me for many months. After the first few visits, I started seeing, significant benefits. In about 3 months, I had regained almost the full range of motion for my shoulder. Dr John is highly professional, skilled, friendly and understanding.

By far the best of physical therapy and personal training. I couldn’t be happier with my results.

COR definitely stands out from the traditional physical therapy facility. John and Erin really care about improving their patients and helping them get back to whatever sport or activity they are working back towards.

Josh Tolland

I was lucky enough to be recommended to the COR team by a co-worker almost 1 year ago after a 5 year battle with a low back injury post motor vehicle accident. The team at COR got me out of pain in 2 weeks and more importantly taught me how to maintain a healthy Spine and Body on my own. Thank you COR.

COR is a daily part of my life. I start my mornings at the 5:30 am boot camp where I want to show up at that crazy hour because the supportive co-members make it fun; the expertise of the BC leaders challenge our bodies & sometimes our minds and over all I feel better that I have gone. Great community to get fit with!
Shrey Nayak

I am going there and Trainer John is very kind and helpful.!!!

5 stars! Everyone in and out of the office is always in a good mood. Clean!! Seriously, best staff, patients, clients, and memories! It is the best place to workout and receive rehab in Santa Clara 🙂

As a previous collegiate swimmer, and current open water swimmer, I’ve had consistent shoulder pain throughout my career. I’ve been receiving physical therapy for this ongoing shoulder pain and can honestly say, these sessions have SAVED my shoulder and posture. I am now pain and stress free during my workouts and sitting all day at work.
