Welcome to Orthopedic Physical Therapy, Inc.

Orthopedic Physical Therapy Inc. is celebrating 35 years of operation as a Henrico County business!  We continuously strive to establish an open and professional relationship with our patients.  Patient care is based on determining the source of the pain.

The evaluating physical therapist uses their knowledge and skills to reach functional goals. In most cases, the evaluation and treatment sessions will be with the same therapist. This fosters a continuum of care and encourages consistency. If an issue arises that needs a specialized evaluation, the appropriate therapist will be consulted.

All of the therapists at Orthopedic Physical Therapy specialize in manual therapy.  This approach includes advanced skills and emphasizes direct, hands-on treatment. Many of our therapists have received international certification in trigger point dry needling, which can often be a faster, more effective method of treating the true source of your pain.  Our goal is to return the patient to the best functional and pain-free level possible.

Too many patients are victims of medical imaging technology! Look at the graph below and see the statistics with how levels of arthritis relates to pain as we age. As we age, the kisses of time (much nicer way of saying degeneration) increase in a predictable and linear fashion. However, low back pain spikes between the ages of 40-55 and then starts to drop off as those same natural changes continue to increase. The changes you see on x-rays and other scans are like wrinkles on the skin. They're natural, part of the kisses of time, but does your skin hurt? Make sure you see a provider that empowers you with education and self assessment and treatment methods.
