Could you benefit from physical therapy?


Rosslyn's award-winning physical therapy practice, Pivot Physical Therapy, provides advice on when to seek help

Conveniently located between the Rosslyn and Courthouse Metros, Pivot Physical Therapy is Rosslyn's go-to spot for those seeking a convenient, top-rated physical therapist in the neighborhood.

Physical therapy uses exercise and manual or aquatic therapy* to help alleviate pain without the use of medicine or surgery. There are countless reasons why someone may need physical therapy, says Tammy Hill, Pivot's physician and community liaison. Many seek physical therapy as part of their rehabilitation after surgery. Others use it to treat acute or chronic pain, back pain or work-related injuries. Those recovering from a stroke or breast cancer surgery can also use physical therapy to aid their recovery.

If you are not sure if physical therapy is right for you, you can schedule a complimentary injury screening with one of Pivot's physical therapists in Rosslyn. You do not need a prescription to have a free injury screening, although you will need one before embarking on a regular physical therapy treatment plan. The average course of physical therapy is twice a week for six weeks.

"Whatever your needs may be, our approach and philosophy are simple: We provide personal physical therapy with exceptional outcomes," Hill says. "Physical therapy can help you get back to your daily activities, return to your sport, or resume working out as soon as possible."

Pivot Physical Therapy aims to make physical therapy easy and convenient for patients. They accept most health insurance providers (many people don't know that physical therapy is covered by insurance, Hill says). They also offer early morning and evening appointments. It's often possible to get an appointment within 24 hours of calling.

Also, because Pivot is part of a network of providers, if a service isn't available at the Rosslyn clinic, Pivot staff will find a location within the network that does provide it.

Specialty therapies available at the Rosslyn location include concussion management, dry needling (the use of needles to combat muscle pain), vestibular therapy (an exercise-based program to improve balance and reduce dizziness-related problems), and sports rehabilitation.
