Core Physical Therapy in Evansville, WI, offers a wide range of specialized services to help decrease pain and restore your normal level of activity. Our services include, but are not limited to, the following:

Aquatic Therapy

Starting Spring of 2024:

Core Physical Therapy now offering aquatic therapy; a first in the area for private practice and an excellent treatment method

If you haven’t heard about or seen the amazing expansion project going on at Core Physical Therapy in Evansville, you may be missing out. Owner and operator Blase Strobl’s longtime dream is finally coming true: Personalized, private aquatic therapy in a comfortable and professional environment. There were challenges along the way but we pressed on. We crossed all of our T’s and dotted all of our I’s and spent a tremendous amount of time and energy and it is all coming together! With the encouragement and assistance of many, Core Physical Therapy can offer aquatic therapy to our community which we hope will have a positive effect on everyone. We can help you regain confidence, recover more fully from surgery, and help you enjoy the process along the way. Your safety is our number one priority! You will be one on one with your therapist for the entire aquatic session. The state of the art water quality management system is maintained by trained staff. A safe and comfortable environment with many benefits. Aquatic therapy offers benefits such as: 

* Promotes relaxation in muscles 

* Increases range of motion 

* Aids in weight loss 

* Improves stamina 

* Decreases swelling 

* Improves balance and coordination 

* Enhances post-op rehabilitation 

The aquatic treadmill we’ve invested in, the H2O for Fitness Mirage Pro Max, is designed for enjoyment and comfort, and will be a great addition to our already wide range of treatment methods. 

Our new 1500 sqft addition will feature our new aquatics area, three new private treatment rooms, and extra gym space with all of the equipment needed to accomplish any therapy task.

Dry Needling

Dry needling is a special procedure that helps reduce acute or chronic pain in patients. It works by reducing muscle tension, promotes healing and increases your range of motion.

You may benefit from dry needling if you have neck, back or shoulder pain, arm pain, headaches, jaw pain, fibromyalgia or osteoarthritis of the joints or temporomandibular disorder (TMJ) among other conditions.

Dry needling involves having our specially trained and certified physical therapists insert a disposable filament needle into your skin and muscle tissue.

It works because the needles are directed at the myofascial trigger points that can cause and refer pain throughout the body. High concentrations of chemicals can be found in these trigger points. When the needle is inserted, it helps to normalize these chemical levels and decrease muscle tension and pain.

Manual Therapy

We take a hands-on approach and use manual therapy to mobilize and manipulate the soft tissues in an effort to decrease pain and increase your range of motion.

Manual therapy is also effective in adding flexibility to stiff joints and muscles.

These treatments, when coupled with a home exercise program, help you to heal and get back to your normal level of activity quickly.

Soft Tissue Mobilization

Soft tissue mobilization (STM) is a therapy that restores muscle play, breaking down fascial restrictions between muscles and soft connective tissues that are associated with muscle tightness, loss of motion and pain.

Specific directional manual force is used in the direction of fascial restriction through a gentle hands on approach. Functional STM combines active lengthening of the muscle tissue with manual work.

Myofascial Release

Our focus on ensuring each patient receives customized care is enhanced with our use of Myofascial Release as a physical therapy.

It is a safe, hands-on technique that requires the physical therapist to apply gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions. The result is the elimination of pain and the restoration of motion.

The therapy enables the physical therapist to correctly detect the fascial restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate the release of the fascia.

Trigger Point Release

A trigger point is palpable nodule in a taut band, commonly referred to as a “knot” in a muscle.  Trigger points are found in specific area of a muscle and can create pain on touch or cause referred pain outside of the trigger point location. It can develop in any muscle in the body, but some areas are more prone than others.

We use our skills and training to identify trigger points, resolve them, and if all trigger points have been deactivated, elongating the muscles which is where most treatment occurs.

This involves stretching the muscle using combinations of passive, active, active isolated muscle energy techniques and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation.

Joint Mobilization

Joint mobilization is a manual therapy technique comprised of a series of skilled passive movements in joints and related soft tissues that are applied at varying speeds and amplitudes.

The goal of this therapy is to attempt to restore full, painless joint function by rhythmic, repetitive, passive movements within the patient’s tolerance and within the voluntary and accessory range.

Mobilization may impact a whole vertebral region or it may be localized to a single segment.


Instrument Augmented Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) helps heal muscular disorders and injuries. It is a new range of tool which enables the physical therapist to efficiently locate and treat individuals diagnosed with soft tissue dysfunction

It is performed with ergonomically designed instruments that detect and treat fascial restrictions, encourage rapid localization and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis, chronic inflammation, or degeneration.

It has been successful in treating conditions such as restricted range of motion, painful motions, impaired muscle recruitment, neck and back pain, plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, heel pain, post-surgical scars, chronic pain, muscle strains, chronic bursitis, IT band syndrome and many other forms of musculoskeletal dysfunction.


Therapeutic ultrasound is a treatment modality commonly used in physical therapy to provide deep heating to soft tissue in the body. These tissues include muscles, tendons, joints and ligaments.

This treatment helps the healing process and decreases pain. It also increases the “stretchiness” of muscles and tendons that may be tight.


Iontophoresis is a therapeutic modality often used by physical therapists to treat a variety of conditions. It is a type of electrical stimulation that is used to administer medication into your body through your skin.
