In October 2000, Matthew Pulisic, PT, DPT, OCS opened Richmond Physical Therapy Corporation and in 2005 he opened a second location in Ashland. We have a team of sixteen staff including eight licensed physical therapists. Our physical therapists specialize in treating orthopedic and sports-related injuries, as well as various pediatric conditions. We are the physical therapy providers for Randolph-Macon College and St. Christopher's Private School.
We take great pride in the work we do, putting the patient first at all times. We offer both early morning and late evening hours for appointments and will guarantee an appointment within the first 48 business hours of calling our office. Emergency appointments are available when necessary. Our physical therapists have over 70 years of combined experience and have developed excellent relationships with numerous local physicians. We pride ourselves in the fact that we are able to attain very successful outcomes using evidence-based treatment programs and have recently been able to reduce the number of visits needed before discharge from our facility.
We are active in teaching, we have instructed many undergraduate students in preparation for physical therapy school, as well as provided clinical internships annually for students in the School of Physical Therapy at VCU. We are also active in the community working with local running groups, cycling clubs, coaching sports and sponsoring local events. We also offer complimentary screening programs for athletes in order to prevent injury.
Our staff is available to make your experience as pleasant as possible. We will work closely with you to make sure your insurance benefits are understood and will contact your insurance company as needed. Our primary goal is to help you prevent further injury, and improve the quality of your life.
