Most people see physical therapy as a response to an injury. Corinne Croce sees it differently. To her, and a growing number of physical therapists, PT is a regular part of life that will help you maintain a strong and healthy body.
Corinne is redefining what the physical therapy industry is doing. She is a manual therapist who helps her patients integrate their therapy into different aspects of their daily lives. She is also the lead PT at SoulCycle where she trains instructors and helps them stay in top physical shape.
In this conversation, we discuss why most people only go use physical therapy when they are injured or hurting and why that is a mistake. This is especially important for trainers themselves. As someone who has trained hundreds of trainers, Corinne has helped disseminate her message of sustainable physical therapy throughout the industry.

physical therapy into your daily life? Tell me about it in the
