CoreActive is committed to employing highly-trained, experienced and compassionate Physical Therapy specialists to benefit the health and wellness of our clients.
We are grateful for the opportunity to work with you on your health journey!
Emily Block, P.T. is thrilled to be part of the CoreActive team! She has been practicing Physical Therapy across five different states since 2002, treating patients with orthopedic, neurologic and pelvic floor related conditions, sports injuries, and post-surgical needs.
Emily’s expertise and passion lie at the intersection of orthopedic and pelvic physical therapy - she has advanced training in the treatment of pelvic pain and musculoskeletal impairments. In both Colorado and New York, she worked to establish pelvic physical therapy programs to serve this patient population. Her experience with obstetrics and childbirth while living in West Africa, in addition to her own pregnancies, fostered this deep interest associated with pregnancy and postpartum. As a multi-sport enthusiast and former collegiate golfer, Emily is passionate about helping others stay active and reach their goals. She values one-on-one time to thoroughly evaluate and treat each patient applying manual techniques and tailored exercise programs.
When Emily is not working or refining her skills through continuing education, she can be found outdoors biking, hiking, running, playing tennis and golf, or playing tag
at a local playground with her husband and their two active children.
