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 came about while receiving therapy for a dance-related injury. 

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

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

Rebecca is certified in Pilates (mat and reformer) and is trained in cadillac, chair and barrels; she has been a lecturer in the Department of Dance at VCU co-teaching a course titled "Dance Science" and has presented a paper at the International Association of Dance Medicine Science. Due to her extensive interest in dance and movement assessment, Rebecca enjoys working with clients who have dance-related injuries among other intricate orthopedic conditions. Rebecca is also LSVT BIG certified-a unique treatment program for Parkinson's.

Outside of the clinic, Rebecca loves to travel or entertain friends and family with her husband.
