Here at VTFC we're more than your average physical therapy team! As a subsidiary of Virginia Spine Institute, we provide our patients with the very best in rehabilitative care for all types of orthopaedic conditions. This is done through our unique and comprehensive all under-one-roof treatment model. We are proud to have been recognized nationally among the Top 17 Surgery Centers with Physical Therapy Programs by Becker's ASC Review. We were also recognized as Top Experts in Sports Medicine for our work with Olympic Athletes, NFL players, professional athletes, and weekend warriors. Today, not only does our physical therapy team excel in spinal rehabilitation, we also treat all types of orthpaedic conditions and provide surgery rehabilitation. Clinic Co-Directors, Rich Banton and Larry Grine, came together with the shared belief that not all physical therapy centers are created equal. In October of 2004, Virginia Therapy & Fitness Center was born!

How We're Different

Our multi-disciplinary model utilizes one-on-one treatments and consistency of care. What does this mean for you? It means more effective results with fewer visits. Whether you are recovering from an injury, experiencing pain or striving to achieve a healthier lifestyle, our dynamic and spirited team is here to play an active role in achieving your end goal (which is our goal, too). We develop personalized relationships with our patients with a commitment to represent the American Physical Therapy Association's Core Values: Accountability, Altruism, Compassion and Caring, Excellence, Integrity, Professional Duty and Social Responsibility. Our treatment approach reflects patient-focused care, time, quality, consistency and education in the following ways:

  1. Patient-Focused Care: One-on-one appointments 
  2. Quality TimeEach appointment consists of one full hour devoted to one-on-one treatment 
  3. Expert Care: Each appointment is scheduled with a Licensed Physical Therapist
  4. Consistency is KeyEach patient is treated by the same Physical Therapist for each of their appointments
  5. Education: Our entire team has received extensive training through advanced manual therapy curriculums

Our Team

At VTFC, we ensure high-quality treatments as all of our physical therapists are extensively trained in Manual Therapy Certification Programs accredited by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA)Our Physical Therapists thrive on providing overall wellness for each of our patients. Virginia Therapy & Fitness Center believes a physical therapist should always incorporate a “hands-on” manual therapy approach to treating patients. We believe that our role is to diagnose and treat our patients through a combination of manual therapy and exercise. Our physical therapists have completed extensive manual therapy training and can identify dysfunctional joints that are not moving normally. At VTFC, we diagnose by listening to our patients, observing how our patients move, and assessing the state of our patients’ musculoskeletal and neuromuscular systems. Following an examination, our physical therapists will work with each patient to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to overcoming their specific condition or injury.
