About Dr. Abbate

Dr. Cory Abbate

Dr. Cory Abbate graduated from Sacred Heart University with a BS in Exercise Science and a Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2010. He moved down from New York to Miami and continued to study, earning a Certificate in Orthopedic Manual Therapy through the Ola Grimsby Institute.

Over the years, Dr. Abbate has earned several personal training certifications to better prescribe strength training exercises after his patients completed their physical therapy.

While working with professional dancers at Royal Caribbean and Celebrity studios and  professional fighters (MMA, BJJ), he learned that providing emergency medical services was a necessary skillset. So in 2017 he became an Emergency Medical Responder. 

He soon became frustrated that athletes were not receiving the care they needed at traditional PT “clinics” and he opened up his own office in May of 2017 to better serve athletes. Over the years, Dr. Abbate has had the opportunity to work with weekend warrior looking to stay fit throughout their life, and olympians in olympic weight lifting.

Physical Therapy

What is physical therapy?

Is it stretching? Massage? Exercise?

The answer is, it depends.

Injuries often result in pain, loss of movement and muscle weakness. This prevents you from participating in your sport or exercising. Physical therapists examine and treat many different types of injuries to facilitate the return to independence.

Dr. Abbate has training in a wide range of movement assessments and treatment techniques. The treatment he uses to get you back to an active lifestyle depends on your specific injury, the examination and the plan of care.

The Plan

A successful return to sport requires a plan.

Dr. Abbate guides patients through three phases of rehabilitation. Each phase progresses one step at a time, preparing the athlete for return to play.

Phase 1 teaches the patient how to manage the pain with functional movements. For example, if you have hip pain with squatting, you will learn a series of exercises to perform to address this. Most often, you are still “allowed” to continue training with some modifications.

Phase 2 addresses balance and coordination deficits that can contribute to poor movement patterns. For example, if you have shoulder pain with reaching overhead, there may be a change in how the muscles coordinate to produce that movement. The second phase will restore normal movement patterns for a pain free life.

Phase 3 prepares the athlete for higher level strength training exercise. This program is designed to improve your confidence and continue to build strength. Exercise prescription is dependent on your specific history, sport and injury.

You will have a comprehensive plan so that if you experience an aggravation of the injury in the future, you can start back again at Phase 1 and progress to Phase 3. And you will be able to do this independently.

This is your plan.
