Physical therapy

Orthopedic physical therapy helps to support patients with targeted exercises designed to reduce pain, improve mobility, and speed recovery before, during, or instead of orthopedic surgery.

Bracing

Our durable medical equipment department provides the bracing your doctor prescribes for your care, conveniently located at our offices so you don’t have to make another stop.

Custom splinting

If your condition requires custom bracing or splinting, our on-site staff can create and fit that equipment for your right away. We’ll be sure you understand how to use your custom splint, and answer any questions you might have.

Customized treatment plans

Working with your doctor, your physical therapist designs a program specifically targeting your condition and goals. We help you get back in shape, back to work, and back to your active life.

Dry needling

Based in physiology, myofascial dry needling reduces pain and muscle tension, and accelerates therapeutic progress in patients with chronic and acute muscular pain. Dry needling is moderately invasive, but unlike injections it does not involve medication delivery.

Dexterity training

Injury, age, and overuse can negatively impact your flexibility and dexterity. Our on-site physical therapy program works with you to rebuild your ability to enjoy an active life.

Durable medical equipment

From bracing to post-surgical support, our durable medical equipment department conveniently provides everything your doctor prescribes for your care, and works with your insurance to ensure payment.

Mobility exercises

If you’ve suffered loss of mobility due to an accident, injury, or aging, we’ll develop a personalized plan of exercises and therapies designed to increase your range of motion and your ability to tackle everyday tasks.

Orthopedic trauma therapy

Following an accident, many people benefit from non-surgical therapeutic care--either instead of or along with surgery. Our physical therapists and hand therapists work with OrthoVirginia’s trauma surgeons to develop the best plan of care to speed your recovery.

Orthotics

Our on-site podiatrists create custom orthotics designed to support you in your recovery. Designed specifically for you and your needs, custom orthotics can be worn with most shoes and are flexible and discreet.

Pain control

One of the most effective means of controlling chronic pain is specialized physical therapy. Our team designs exercises and therapies to reduce or even eliminate your pain.

Pelvic floor rehabilitation

Pelvic, abdominal, and lower back pain after surgery, trauma, or childbirth can often be addressed through specialized pelvic floor rehabilitation. Our comprehensive treatment is available to both men and women.

Post-injury sports rehabilitation

Our Northern Virginia Return to Sport program provides intensive, highly specialized therapies designed to get injured athletes back into peak performance quickly and safely.

Post-operative therapy

When you have orthopedic surgery, physical therapy plays a critical role in your recovery. We work with your doctor to develop a targeted plan to speed your progress and get you back to your best.

Pre-surgery therapy

In many cases, physical therapy can help prepare you for a more successful orthopedic surgery outcome. If your doctor thinks you’d benefit from pre-surgery physical therapy, we work together to build a unique plan for your condition.

Sports performance
