Virginia Spine Institute and Virginia Therapy and Fitness Center come together to form a unique set of practices catered to our patients’ needs. For nearly 30 years, Virginia Spine Institute has dramatically improved the lives of over 90,000 people suffering from debilitating pain and life-altering discomfort.

FAQ's

What makes VSI and VTFC's relationship unique?

No other practice provides concierge treatment for spine patients from surgery to regenerative medicine to physical therapy, all under one roof. These “Best of Virginia” practices provide top of the line care for all patients.

What should I bring to my first appointment?

When preparing for your physical therapy evaluation please bring your completed New Patient Registration form, insurance card, and drivers license. If you have a physical therapy order from your referring provider, be sure to bring that as well. (note: a referral is not required – see Direct Access information)

What should I wear to my physical therapy appointments?

We recommend that you bring or come dressed in comfortable “workout” attire as physical therapy is an active process that is easier in clothes that don’t restrict movement. This may include athletic shorts, sweatpants or leggings, t-shirt/tank top, and sneakers. For your convenience we have clean locker rooms available for changing and storing your belongings.

How long will my appointment last?

At VTFC, our approach to patient care is different than most physical therapy practices. Where we differ is that we dedicate one full hour with each patient at each visit. These appointments are one-on-one with a licensed physical therapist.

We respect your time as we hope you do ours. Please allow yourself a few extra minutes to get checked in before your appointment time. It will maximize the scheduled time with your therapist to progress in your treatment plan.

How many appointments will I need?

Each patient’s physical therapy requirements are unique, depending on their condition and pain. At the initial evaluation, your physical therapist will work with you to convey expectations and a custom treatment plan. To ensure consistency of care and progress in healing, we recommend scheduling the suggested number of appointments at the onset of your treatment. By doing so, you will avoid interruptions in care, thus impeding your course of healing.
