Physical therapy is a healthcare profession that assists individuals in restoring, improving, and promoting optimal performance and function. Whether seeking care for a recent injury, surgery or improving your quality of life and activity, physical therapy offers a unique experience specific to you, focused on YOUR goals.
Specializing in movement, we understand that when you move better, you feel better. With knowledge of the complex interaction of each of our bodies systems, an evaluation with our board-certified Doctor of Physical Therapy will focus on finding the root of the problem, not just relieving associated symptoms that commonly return.
The team of physical therapists at Virginia Sport & Spine Institute are highly skilled in offering the latest cutting-edge treatments to help you achieve your goals. Working alongside a unique team of talented sports medicine and performance staff allows us to bridge the gap between rehab and performance. Providing this continuity of care enables us to offer a unique and comprehensive approach to your care.
Our clinicians are trained in many of the latest assessments, treatment, and manual therapy techniques, including:
- Pre/Post-Operative Rehabilitation
- Selective Functional Movement Assessments (SFMA) and Functional Movement Screen (FMS)
- Trigger Point release and neuromuscular techniques
- Muscle energy techniques
- Soft tissue massage and fascial release
- Joint mobilizations and spinal manipulation
- Cupping Therapy
We emphasize a hands-on approach that includes a thorough biomechanical assessment of how the body moves and functions to determine what specific muscle imbalances and movement impairments may be leading to dysfunction or limitations in your performance. We then offer an individualized approach that produces effective and efficient results.
In Virginia, you do not need a doctor’s referral before coming in for an evaluation with our physical therapist. It is our philosophy at VSSI to "equip our patients/athletes to LIVE, WORK, PLAY & MOVE at their highest level."
So plan to be challenged as we work towards the goals you and your VSSI professional set for you.
