Our Philosophy

IssaPT Welcome

Welcome to ISSA PHYSICAL THERAPY! We understand that if you are thinking about scheduling an appointment at our clinic online that it may not be under the best of circumstances. You may be experiencing pain or limited function or maybe just simply not physically performing at your best.  We strive to get people back to what they love doing, pain-free and doing it better than before.  We aim to provide the highest quality of care in the shortest possible time frames.  Whether you have received outpatient physical therapy care in the past or not, we expect and hope that your experience will exceed your expectations.

About Us

We are a physical therapist owned practice that opened in 2005 with aim of providing the highest quality outpatient physical therapy care in the DC Metro area. 

Our approach is simple: Relieve – Restore - Prevent 

  • Relieve pain and stiffness. 
  • Restore mobility and optimal function. 
  • Prevent further pain and injury.

What Makes Us Different

We use a 'hands on' manual therapy approach aimed at identifying the source of the pain and dysfunction, not merely treating the symptoms.  We believe in one-on-one treatment sessions. You will not be treated by aides or assistants and we do not double book. Our clinicians are highly trained manual therapists who are involved in teaching and clinical research.  They are trained in highly skilled therapeutic interventions that work. We have an exceptional reputation amongst our patients and referrals sources. Most of our clients are word-of-mouth referrals.  We take pride in that. Your treatment plan will be a collaborative effort aimed at reaching your maximal rehab potential based on your goals and your therapist’s recommendations.  Your therapist will provide you with the education you need to better understand your condition and to empower you with self-management strategies.

Your Role

It is imperative that you take an active role in the rehabilitation process so that you can obtain the maximum benefit as quickly as possible.  It is important to attend therapy sessions consistently and to perform your home exercise program as prescribed by your therapist. Our therapists rely on your feedback to make clinical decisions. We can’t help you reach your goals without your help.

Staying Informed & Connected

We want to keep you informed of practice news and events. Signing up for our Newsletter and RSS News Feed is a good place to start.  Some other ways you can stay connected and informed is to ‘Like us’ on Facebook and ‘Follow us’ on Twitter.

We truly look forward to helping you achieve your goals and hope that you will enjoy an improved quality of life!

Best wishes,
