What would you like to tell us about your practice?
At Core Conditioning, we approach every patient with the same goal in mind – to guide our patients and clients through rehabilitation, whole-body fitness, and lifetime wellness goals. Our clients have come to know their Physical Therapists and Pilates, Gyrotonic and Redcord instructors and with that they experience the unique characteristic environment that defines Core. Every client is comprehensively assessed and an individualized program is designed specifically for them. We spend one-on-one time with our patients during every treatment session, because we believe it is critical to helping our patients achieve the integrated, whole-body rehabilitation they deserve. It's a practice that is virtually unheard of in today's fast-paced, billing-focused managed- care environment. This type of wellness center differs from the conventional Physical Therapy clinic or fitness studio in that it integrates 100% of both worlds. This was the dream of its owners, Allyson Cabot PT and Gabrielle Shrier, MPT. The evolution of this project began in 1991 when each of them individually realized their passion for movement as a rehabilitative tool. Nine years later, their paths crossed and collaboration for their shared vision began. It was evident to each of the partners (who had similar experiences in their previous clinical practices) that in order to feel unlimited in their capabilities as therapists and stay true to their beliefs they would have to create that environment themselves. In 2003 their vision became a reality. Their first location had minimal Pilates equipment and a small curtained off area for patient treatments. It was small, but provided the framework for what would become Core Conditioning. This space was quickly overflowing because of the needs of local communities for this type of approach to rehabilitation, wellness and fitness. Currently Core Conditioning has two state of the art locations in Burbank and Studio City, California offering their approach.

What questions should patients ask when evaluating a health practitioner?
1. Years of experience – whether physical therapy or fitness 2. If fitness, who is the certifying body and make sure it’s credible 3. Clarify payment up front 4. How long are sessions overall, is the ratio of client/ patient to practitioner 1:1 for the entire session? 5. What paperwork do I need to fill out? When clients are not responding to treatment according to what we would expect, we are always open to collaborating – either with other therapists on staff with different specialties or outside practitioners. Many times, clients come in with a multitude of issues and a multi-disciplinary approach is what is needed. We will evaluate and treat according to our scope of practice and then refer to other disciplines for a comprehensive plan. Some practitioners include, but are not limited to acupuncture, chiropractor, nutritionist, psychology, prolotherapy etc. 6. Do I need a prescription? 7. What differentiates your facility from others? 8. What should I expect at my visit, is there something specific I should wear? 9. What is my therapists specialty?
What do you believe is the future for health and healthcare?
We are currently in a huge transition. Knowledge is prevalent with the digital age and consumers are savvy and inquisitive. Additionally, because of the advancement of medicine the average lifespan of humans has improved tremendously. Individuals are looking for ways to make the quality of their lives better for longer. Because of this we believe healthcare is going to move to more of a wellness model vs. illness model where individuals are proactively seeking well being, improving quality of their lives and ultimate health. In this era of health care industry more responsibility is being placed on the subscriber. Health care costs are continually rising and benefits are declining. Reimbursement to the provider is being decreased which is reducing the quality of care in some facilities. This is why it is imperative for the consumers to do their due diligence.
