"Dr Brauna was amazing! In just a few short weeks she helped make the pain and numbness in my neck and arm go away. I would recommend this office to anyone looking for a very attentive office. I am more than thrilled with the level of service I received. "

"Brauna was so great in building my confidence postpartum with my diastasis recti. She was patient and really showed me efficient exercises and built upon each session to further heal my body. I hope I do not need to come back for more physical therapy, but if I do, I will go back to Brauna!"

"Back In Motion is absolutely wonderful. I had a shoulder & lower back issue and they helped me get back to full strength. Erika was really good at explaining what my issues were as well as showing me on the skeleton and diagram poster. I highly recommend her."

"I am writing this review after completing three months of physical therapy to address the back problems of a 70 year old man with stenosis, spondylosis, and arthritis which forced me to restrict movement and activities; I could not walk more than 3 blocks without serious pain. Prior to beginning this therapy I underwent 2 months of peripheral nerve stimulation therapy which did a great job of reducing pain to an acceptable level but required additional therapy for core strengthening to support longer term recovery. With Michelle as my primary therapist and assisted by Marcus I received excellent attention to my specific problems such that I am now able to walk a mile plus with minimal pain and without needing to sit down all the time. Before completing the therapy I was provided a set of exercises to complete on a daily basis ( minimum 4 times per week) to maintain the progress I made. To-date, three months later, I am feeling no more pain than I did when I completed the therapy (2/10 on the pain scale). The advice and guidance I received from Michelle and Marcus have served me well. I have the tools to manage my back pain provided I opt to complete the exercises daily and keep moving. Without question, I recommend Back-in-Motion for anyone requiring state-of-the-art physical therapy. It's a great place with great staff and I will go back there again for any other PT needs."

"I would HIGHLY recommend Back in Motion to anyone looking for physical therapy.The expertise and professionalism of this office was top notch. I was a patient here getting PT before and after a 2 level disc replacement (C4-C6). Katie and Melinda helped me manage the pain before surgery and then Marcus helped me in my recovery. Due to COVID, Marcus and I even moved to Tele-Health therapy which was both effective and constructive. I'd highly recommend it! "

"I have had to go to numerous physical therapy clinics over the past 10 years. From a range of experiences with other clinics, I have found Back In Motion to be a rare experience. I enjoy the one-to-one environment that offers privacy and allows you to have a full period of interaction with a therapist, rather than being treated in one big communal room. That spirit of personal care is also exhibited by my therapist. I feel that the care is personalized and unrushed. I don't feel that I am being passed from one person to another to simply increase the clinic's efficiency. I will return to Back in Motion for any future PT needs, and highly recommend BIM to any potential client. "

" I received excellent detailed instructions on exercise to regain motion in my left knee after total knee replacement surgery. Ann Marie S. was very specific in directions and guidance in the most beneficial exercises to regain movement. She provided at home exercises and made certain that I knew how to do them properly. She measured and tracked my progress. I surpassed the targeted goals and I am very pleased with my progress. I have and will recommend Back In Motion to my friends. "

"Referred for Physical Therapy for bursitis in both hips, I returned to Back in Motion because of previous positive outcomes working with the therapists. From September - December 2019, I initially worked with Ryan and Brauna and Marcus. The majority of my therapy was with Lisa Pan. Lisa is an excellent, patient, caring and effective therapist and designed exercises to specifically address my issues. Additionally, all of the exercises were easily adaptable and transferable for me to do at home. Lisa and all of the Back in Motion staff are outstanding, knowledgeable, professionals. "

"I was discouraged because I wasn't recovering well from a total knee replacement. I was 7 months post-op, and I got the help I needed at Back In Motion. I'm so very glad I went there.
I was measured and evaluated, and shown the exercises I needed to do. The therapist stayed right with me, right next to me as I did my exercises. There was also a lot of "reality talk"frank discussion about what would help and what wouldn't help, and how I should go forward. I appreciated the advice.
Today I left physical therapy as agreed with my therapist. I feel that I have a clear way forward and understand what to do and what to maintain in order to continue my healing.
I'm grateful for all the help I got at Back In Motion."

"I highly recommend Ann Marie Simko, came in with a Rotator cuff injury and severe pain but Ann Marie's hard work has made a great deal of difference in how I feel. I was so impressed that she spent the full hour with me, I was fully expecting to be with a Tech. I've already recommended Back in Motion to a neighbor and she feels the same way. The front office staff was very Accommodating as well. Thank you, Hanan"

"I recently received PT services from Dec through Jan (8 weeks) to rehab my foot following an extensive surgery. Caitlin, my Therapist throughout this time, provided much needed support and encouragement along with developing exercises that strengthened my foot considerably. I am now looking forward to the spring and many pain free long walks! Caitlin was consistently professional and detailed in her assessment, and then follow through. Thank you Back in Motion. I will definitely recommend this organization to others when needed."

"I came to "Back In Motion" after experiencing a failed partial knee replacement and physical therapy by another facility. I had very special instructions from the physician after necessary knee reconstruction and, this time, full knee replacement. My therapist was Marcus Rein who was able to help and guide me to recovery. Since I was instructed that at no time was I to bear full weight on the operated knee/leg, Marcus was able to substitute other exercises which had the exact same effect as if I had put my weight on my leg. Marcus was able to accommodate me with my special need and was so positive during my treatment that I overcame the fear and disappointment of my previous failed surgery. My wife, prior to making my appointment, spoke with the manager because of the unusual circumstances and we were assured that we would receive the best care necessary for our situation. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Marcus, the Manger and all staff for an outstanding performance and professionalism leading to recovery.

"I came to Back-in-Motion after having a series of spinal steroid injections for degenerative disc, stenosis, and mild anterolisthesis and upon my back doctor's recommendation that I would benefit from additional physical therapy. I selected Back-in-Motion for my PT based on posted reviews as well as the description of the individual attention they afford their clients. Michelle was assigned as my therapist for the almost 8 weeks of therapy I recently completed. Michelle was studious in her review of my multiple back issues and developed a set of core exercises that helped rebuild core strength and increase range-in-motion and manage pain through select exercises. Although I will never be completely healed and without pain given my spine's structural issues, I was very pleased with the results of my PT sessions with Michelle. I am able to better understand my limitations but have some tools to help me move around more comfortably with a lot less pain, or sometimes no pain at all. The staff at Back-in-Motion were always friendly and helpful. I will return to Back-in-Motion for any future PT needs and highly recommend them to all in need of a solid PT experience. "

"The entire staff of Back In Motion was absolutely wonderful. I had several physical therapist to address issues with my shoulder. They were all caring, kind and compassionate.
My primary therapist was Anne Marie who inspires you to perform exercises, keeps impeccable notes on each visit and is especially attentive to her patients needs.
The owner of Back In Motion must be esstatic with the performance of her staff as they treat her business as if it was their own. I highly recommend Back In Motion for your physical therapy needs.

"My therapy sessions with Brauna have been amazing. She is very thorough in diagnosing the problem and so helpful in recommending exercises to strengthen the weakness. The recommended exercises for my ankle have provided much relief and I am confident that if I continue with the recommended exercises I will be pain free. The
Alexandria location is great and parking is so easy. The
office staff is very cheerful and are accommodating to scheduling appointments.."

"Brauna is excellent for pelvic floor PT. She is very knowledgeable about the female anatomy and patiently explains what is going on in your body and what she is trying to achieve with her exercises and movements. She is a true professional that greets you with a cheerful attitude and smile at each visit."

"Back in Motion has a personal, dedicated approach where you work with your therapist for the entire hour, unlike the current PT trend where you spend 10 minutes with the certified therapist and then he/she hands you off to an assistant with unknown qualifications who is supposed to monitor exercises the therapist has assigned. The therapists I’ve worked with at Back in Motion are very caring and supremely competent. Brauna is very intuitive and perceptive and genuinely cares about your well-being. The support staff at the desk are friendly and helpful, making it a welcoming place. BIM has been making a difference in my life."

"I used Back in Motion in Alexandria twice — for a range of motion check after surgery and then, more extensively, for rehab following total knee replacement.
Elicia and AnnMarie were great and the transition back and forth between the two was seamless. Best of all, my surgeon was very impressed with my progress, all due to Elicia and AnnMarie’s efforts. (OK mine, too.). Thank you both!
I have another order for another problem and intend to seek therapy from Back in Motion again."

"After trying several PTs in northern VA over the years, I discovered Back in Motion in Lorton. I am now a dedicated patient. Under their direction for two partial knee and one shoulder replacements I have been overly impressed with the dedication and knowledge in getting me back in shape in the shortest time possible. Kim is especially knowledgeable in setting realistic goals and keeping me on track to meet them. I get a full hour of one-on-one attention each time I arrive. Everyone is friendly and encouraging on each visit. They are terrific and I highly recommend Back in Motion."

"I love the people who work at Back In Motion! The physical therapists here are not only extremely professional and knowledgeable, but extraordinarily patient as you learn the exercises and movements that will help your body heal.
I began going to this facility on January 9, 2018 after falling and fracturing my hip during an out-of-state trip to Washington State in November 2017. I couldn’t fly home to Virginia until I recovered enough to do so. Once home, a neighbor highly recommended Back In Motion to us.
One by one, their rehab program transitioned me from a wheelchair to a walker, and then to a cane, until now I am confidently able to walk on my own once again.
I highly recommend my therapist, Courtney Souter, who made this difficult time for me not so difficult and even enjoyable.

"Having celebrated my 70th birthday last week, I want to take the time to thank those who played a role in getting me here in good health. And Back in Motion, Caryn in particular, was an important element in that. I’m in the best shape I’ve been in a decade. In celebration, I chose this birthday to check off one of my bucket list items. Like the original President Bush, I celebrated by jumping out of an airplane for the first time. After 20 years of Navy flying without ever having to take that last resort, it was time to give it a try. It was an exhilarating thrill. And I would not have achieved it (or enjoyed it as much) without the excellent care provided by Caryn and the Back in Motion team. My sincere thanks to you all.

Margaux, Thanks so much for all you did for me, your hands are magic. Yours truly.
I loved going to therapy session with them because I knew I was going to come out better both physically and personally. Back in Motion should be at the top of your list for therapy organizations for any of your patients. Just thought you should know.
I have benefited from physical therapy three times in the last 25 years for different problems, and Back in Motion Physical Therapy is the best of the best! The staff is professional, helpful, and knowledgeable. Mary treated me for vertigo, and my only regret is that I did not find her and Back in Motion sooner!
