Rebecca Brown, DPT

Specialization: Dance related injuries, general orthopedics, core stabilization and pilates-based rehabilitation. LSVT BIG certified clinician.

Rebecca Brown launched her career as a physical therapist after working as a pilates instructor since 2000. Her interest in the rehab profession was peaked while recovering from a dance injury with the help of a physical therapist.

"The first person to help me back into intense rehearsals and dance classes was the physical therapist I met after a bad ankle sprain; she had me back on my feet within the week! After this, I knew I wanted to be that person helping get people back into the activities they love." says Rebecca.

After persuing a career in professional dance in Chicago upon graduating from high school, Rebecca received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science in 2004 from the University of Michigan. Rebecca then earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2011 from Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU).

Rebecca is also certified in Pilates (mat and reformer) and is trained in cadillac, chair and barrels; she is also a lecturer in the Department of Dance at VCU co-teaching a course titled "Dance Science" each spring. Due to her extensive background in dance and movement assessment, Rebecca enjoys working with clients who have dance-related injuries amoung other intricate orthopedic conditions.

Rebecca has completed her certification in LSVT BIG, a unique treatment program for Parkinson's.

When she is not working she loves to cook with her husband (or watch him cook for her!), entertain friends, and explore destinations both local and well beyond!
