    Run for Autism

    Kevin Fang, P.T., from Select Physical Therapy Arlington is riding for autism and for his nephew, SAM IZO. Kevin will be participating in the largest cycling event dedicated to raising awareness and funding for autism.

    Bike to the Beach for autism aims to promote fitness and to support the 2 million people affected by autism.

    Autism Speaks has helped put a face on the 2 million people affected by autism and what their families deal with every day through their blog:

    The blog allows people affected by autism to write about their every-day lives and is a great place to see how your donation to Bike to the Beach for autism can help. Below are just a few outstanding entries from the blog:

    The story of Ryan Rogers, who was just diagnosed with Aspergers in 2013, and became the "first documented person in history with autism to win a medal (bronze) in kata in the 18 to 34 year old novice non-handicap division at the U.S Karate Nationals (

    The story of Gianna Hitsos, a high school senior on the autism spectrum who will soon begin her college career.

    The story of Chrissy Kelly (Life with Greyson) who writes about the emotions surrounding her son's autism diagnosis.

    The story of how Autism Speaks organized over 200 volunteer leaders from classrooms, boardrooms, small towns, big cities, and service sectors from across the country convened for three days.

    That is why Kevin is biking for autism this year. To make a difference. To help get us one step closer to a pain-free future and improving quality of life any way he can!

    Please consider signing up to walk and/or donating to Kevin's page to get him one step closer to his fundraising goal and helping this amazing cause. Please forward this message to all your friends and family, too. The more support we have, the better.

    Great Job, Woodbridge, VA!

    Congratulations to Noreen O’Kane, P.T. in the Alexandria facility, who recently received her doctorate of physical therapy.

    Congratulations to Yanna Zhou, P.T. in the Fair Oaks facility, who is now certified to complete dry needling treatments as part of patient treatment plans.

    Great job, team!

    A valued patient wrote: "First let me just start by saying WOW! I have only been to Select Physical Therapy once and it was just for my evaluation session. When you walk in, the first thing you notice is how nice and warm of a welcome Sue, the patient service specialist, gives you. She lays everything out and is very helpful. Not to mention how she is always smiling! She comes off as a second mom in a way, and you can tell she enjoys her job and helping people in her everyday life. Finally, after getting settled, you meet your therapist who goes over their backround and gives you an overlook of how your sessions are going to go. Like I said, it was only my first visit, but so far I am looking forward to having Select Physical Therapy work on me and get me stronger and back on my active feet. I highly recommend using this facility and I'm glad I chose to use Select Physical Therapy."


    We are pleased to announce that several of our area clinicians have recently been trained in instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) techniques. These therapists can now utilize specially designed stainless steel instruments - which vary in shapes, sizes and brands - to assist in detecting and treating areas exhibiting scar tissue, soft tissue restriction, adhesions or chronic inflammation.

    The instruments are not meant to replace the therapist’s hands, but rather enhance his or her ability to detect adhesions and soft tissue restrictions. The technique combines the use of the instruments to treat the target tissue, reducing symptoms associated with the restrictions enough to allow participation in an individualized plan of care.

    IASTM services are being offered in Alexandria (Richmond Highway), Burke, Arlington, Fredericksburg, Manassas, Herndon, Springfield, McLean and Woodbridge.

    Jennifer is also the clinical coordinator for students in the Northern Virginia Market and is a certified orthopaedic Manual Therapist.

    Congratulations, Jennifer; thank you for your dedication to students and sharing your passion with future physical therapists!
