What is Manual Physical Therapy?
The technical name is Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy but is commonly referred to as Manual Therapy. This type of therapy involves various skillfully lead techniques to find the root cause to what’s inhibiting your movement and/or your physical pain problem(s). Once this is known, a hands-on rehabilitation approach using a combination therapeutic exercises and manual techniques such as the Graston Technique is combined to create your individualized pain relief program.
Our Physical Therapists
Our Physical Therapist (PTs) is either Physical Therapist Assistants (PTAs) or Doctors of Physical Therapists (DPTs). They are dedicated in their quest for continuous learning and advancing their clinical skills needed to bring their evidence-based therapy to so many patients in the Sterling VA, Leesburg VA and Ashburn VA community. Our experienced PTs and DPTs have completed post-graduate advanced Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy training and certification programs and work hard to translate these techniques into results for our patients.

I had a hip pain for many years ... usually after any activity... I was taking pain pills but the pain would come back and I had to take more pills again. I work in the same building and stopped by for a consultation just too see ... I'm glad I did because I am pain-free now !!!!!...... They treat patients 1:1 which is great. All focus is always on the patient 🙂 Highly recommend them if you have physical therapy needs!!!Belen I.
I was diagnosed with disc herniation in April, suffering daily with a level 10 pain. After getting my MRI and consulting with my orthopedist, I was sent to treatment 2-3 times a week, for 6-8 weeks. Virginian Physical Therapy was the closest option to my work, and I'm glad I went there. .....Definitely recommend them. Thank you Virginian Physical Therapy!!Leticia L.
