Heather Guryansky

Heather Guryansky , PTA

Specialization: general orthopaedic rehab with special interst in core stabilization, balance disorders, sport specific injuries

I was born and raised in Fairfax VA. I graduated from James Madison University in 2015 where I majored in Kinesiology with a concentration in Exercise Science/Pre-Physical Therapy track. I graduated from Northern Virginia Community College in 2018 with my Physical Therapist Assistant degree, where I was fortunate to have a variety of clinical placements in the acute, subacute and outpatient settings.

(Other work experience: I used to be a certified personal trainer prior to PTA school. I came to work at ACAC after 2 years working in a skilled nursing facility rehab center where I worked with the geriatric population in overcoming functional mobility limitations.)

I am a former competitive gymnast and had my fair share of injuries that required PT. I have a lot of respect for what our bodies are capable of and want to help others maintain optimal functioning through education of injury prevention and effective body mechanics. I pursued a career in physical therapy because I want to help people achieve their best level of health and fitness so that they can enjoy their passions/interests pain free.

Since moving to the Charlottesville area in 2019 I have enjoyed checking out new hiking trails, local restaurants, fostering dogs from the CASPCA, socializing at breweries and wineries and going to the IX Park Farmers Markets!
