The secret to a fast recovery is immediate rehabilitation.
A recent study from the New England Journal of Medicine concluded that “starting rehabilitation two days after injury rather than waiting for nine days shortened […] return to sports by three weeks without any significant increase in the risk of reinjury.”
How It Works
Call the clinic to determine your best starting point. Call us at (703) 237-3930. Based on your situation, we will schedule you for a sports injury screening, full evaluation, or one of our specialty services.
Come in for your scheduled appointment. During your visit, our doctors of physical therapy will perform tests to determine the cause of your pain and the appropriate treatment plan. Video analysis will be included as soon as tolerated.
Start recovering fast and get back to sport. Our doctors provide everything you need to speed up your recovery. Once you have sufficient strength, alignment, and flexibility restored, our team teaches you how to return to your sport safely.
Our Sports Medicine Services
That’s a lot to take in. You might also be wondering…
Our Doctors of Physical Therapy provide a thorough head-to-toe evaluation. This systematic evaluation process allows us to provide an accurate diagnosis on day one for the majority of our clients. We also perform video analysis of sport as tolerated (typically on the second visit) to determine the faulty movement patterns that are often a source of an athlete’s pain. If more objective data needs to be collected, your Doctor of Physical Therapy may recommend imaging or refer out to another specialist if needed. You will further know your diagnosis is accurate as you will typically see results in two weeks.
Bring your insurance card, ID, any imaging results, and prescription if you have one. Wear clothing that stretches and can expose the injured area. Most athletes show up in their workout clothes.
We’re happy to say a prescription is no longer required. Virginia law (as of June 2016) has made it easy for you to book a physical therapy appointment immediately without seeing a physician first. One stipulation is that we will need a prescription after 30 days, but we are able to start you on the road to recovery prior to obtaining one. A prescription is not required for clients who complete rehab within 30 days.
Our medical sports rehab services are covered by most insurance plans as an out-of-network provider. All insurance plans offer different benefits. If you would like to know the covered amount ahead of time, call your “members” number and request benefits for “out of network physical therapy”. Insurance is confusing and we are happy to help if you need assistance. Our 65 year old+ crew are fully covered through our contract with Medicare (provided you have Medicare and have a secondary insurance).
You’re not alone and we applaud your critical consumerism. That’s why we offer 15 minute consults for $50. Our team will be fully honest and transparent in our ability to help. If we assess that sports rehab will be effective, your $50 will be applied to your full medical evaluation.If sports rehab is not the right service for you, we will recommend imaging or a different type of specialty service to get you heading in the right direction.
Absolutely. While we specialize in sports injuries, we are able to treat anything that falls under the scope of musculoskeletal pain. This includes injuries to joints, tendons, muscles, fascia, and ligaments of the spine and all extremities. This is an equal opportunity rehab clinic!
