Steve Berkey, DPT
Specialization:Endurance sports injuries (i.e. running, cycling, triathlons), general orthopedic rehabilitation, manual therapy approach, biomechanical assessment and custom orthotics
Steve became interested in physical therapy by having "on-the-job" training. In high school, he broke his femur while playing football. He was personally introduced to the field the hard way. This experience opened his eyes to physical therapy and sparked his interest in pursuing the field. Experiencing physical therapy as a patient gave Steve an inside understanding of the pain of a sports injury and the nature of rehabilitation.
Steve earned his doctorate degree in physical therapy from the University of Pittsburgh. He has practiced in a variety of settings including inpatient, home health, skilled nursing, and outpatient. By far, his favorite setting is outpatient orthopedics with endurance athletes. He has a passion for performance training including medically based bike fits, running analyses, prescribing and fitting custom orthotics, and injury prevention.
When Steve is not practicing physical therapy, he is out cycling and hiking the beautiful surroundings of Albemarle county and being with his family. Steve loves spending plenty of time with his wife, Jody, and his son, Elijah.
