Washington, D.C.

If you’ve had trouble in the past trying to find high-quality physical therapy in Washington, D.C., your search has finally ended. Here at Therapydia, you’ll work alongside extremely talented doctors and physical therapists who do more than just help you recover from an injury. Our goal has always been to create long-term plans that are easy to follow and that maximize your physical wellbeing and fitness. We don’t like to just treat symptoms here; we go deeper to find the root cause of your issues and find solutions that work for your unique physicality.

Personalized Physical Therapy

Every single one of our patients receives a customized and personalized treatment plan that addresses their individual concerns. These treatments are done one-on-one with your physical therapist as much as possible, so you get the attention that you need to recover properly and improve your physical wellbeing. We don’t just want you to recover—we want you to increase your overall physical condition to enjoy living longer, healthier, and happier. When you want to take your health and recovery seriously, Therapydia will be there to help you through the process.

Trigger Point Dry Needling

Our physical therapy services in Washington, D.C., include our trigger point dry needling service to help your body relieve tension and inflammation in your muscles. Physical injuries can create areas in your muscles that seize up in an effort to protect themselves. Unfortunately, this usually results in noticeable pain and can affect other parts of your body, such as the ways you can move comfortably. Our physical therapists are specially trained to use dry needling to release the chemicals that cause muscle inflammation in your trigger points. For both brand-new and chronic pain, dry needling can be an effective technique for providing desperately needed relief.

For a full list of the physical therapy services we offer, look around the rest of our website. We here at Therapydia would love to help your recovery process and improve your wellbeing as soon as you’re ready to begin.
