“Melissa and Kerry are awesome. It’s overwhelming looking for a PT in the DMV area. I chose Optimal and am happy I did.
It’s easy to make an appointment. They’re right on top of the Rosslyn metro. You can start the conversation around booking via their website. I filled out an online form and Melissa got back to me that same evening. Via email, we were able to schedule a first appointment and she confirmed their availability to accommodate my future preferred times/days.
It’s 1:1 therapy. I’ve worked with Melissa and she has been great. She really personalizes my treatment, makes adjustments as needed and documents my progress for my orthopedic doctor. I have a shoulder injury and have seen improvements. It’s encouraging to know that when you’re making the time to go (and then do more exercises at home) that the prescribed exercises really pay off in the end.
They specialize in a variety of other areas such as dry needling and vestibular therapy. I did dry needling with Kerry. She was very thorough and communicative about what was happening during the session and what I could expect afterward.
Go here. They are the best.”
“Fantastic PTs in a super convenient location. Kerry and Melissa are both friendly and knowledgeable. I went because I was suffering from sciatica. After the initial consultation with them, Kerry quickly diagnosed my limitations and ran me through some safe stretches and strengthening exercises. I got some pain relief IMMEDIATELY, which I had not been able to do with two weeks of self-treatment before I finally decided to go see a professional. Kerry gave me a simple routine to follow and I started correcting my issue right away. She adjusted the plan for me weekly as I continued to go and I was fully cured in a few weeks. They have a nice clean office with plenty of tools and equipment. It’s right by the metro so super easy to get to. What I liked most about Optimal Physical Therapy was the conversations I had while I was in for my session. They’re just great, personable people you can have a conversation with. I typically dread appointments but this one, I actually looked forward to. 5/5 stars can’t recommend enough. Get some pain relief, get some peace of mind.”
“I started going to Optimal Physical Therapy from October 2018 when I had a surgery on my shoulder for a torn labrum. I worked with Kerry specifically who was extremely patient throughout my therapy sessions. Both Melissa and Kerry are very knowledgeable in their respective specializations and have been providing me with various exercises to ensure I get back on track on enjoying the things I love. I recently graduated from there and my shoulder feels very good and I am already back to doing the things I love doing i.e. Squash, working out etc. I would highly recommend this facility and it is very conveniently located as well. Thank you for all your hard work, Kerry and Melissa, I sincerely appreciate it.”
“Melissa & Kerry provide the best, and personal care for anyone seeking a physical therapist who actually listens and is invested in your health. I’m recovering from an ACL rupture, Meniscus Tear, and cartilage chipping in my left knee. They have gone above and beyond in helping me rehab with innovative therapy at their clinic and personalized work-outs at home. In addition to my left knee, I also have injured my right ACL in the past, and Melissa listens and aids in any concerns that I have to my old injury. She even personally reaches out to my doctor’s office for feedback and reports on my progress. If you’re looking for quality therapy, this is the place to go to without dealing with the waiting and impersonal treatment of other places.”
“I got a really professional but personalized experience at Optimal. And most importantly, I’m seeing results – the pain from my shoulder injury is almost completely gone.”
“Melissa and Kerry are two of the best therapists in the area. Melissa helped me fully recover from an ACL repair. I’m a full participant in sports and activities with no limitations. Their clinic bypasses the aspects of the “corporate” or factory run practices and really keeps the personal feel in the recovery. It helps create a welcoming environment for a hopeful return to activities, goals, or just the lifestyle you wish to live. I would highly recommend them for all therapy needs.”
I highly recommend Optimal PT. I’ve had a great experience. Kerry is so thoughtful and explains things really well. Thanks to her I’m on the road to recovery.
