In July of 2015, Governor Terry McAuliffe appointed Dr. Tracey Adler, DPT, OCS, CMTPT to the State Board of Physical Therapy.

At Orthopedic Physical Therapy Inc., we 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 is an approach which includes advanced skills and emphasizes direct, hands-on treatment. Four of our therapist 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.
Three of our physical therapists have received Best Bedside Manner Awards from Our Health Richmond magazine! In 2016, Governor McAuliffe appointed Dr. Tracey Adler, PT, DPT, OCS, CMTPT to the Virginia Board of Physical Therapy!
