Our Team

Nielsen M. Atchinson, P.T.

Nielsen earned a bachelor's degree in physical therapy in Manila, Philippines in 1991, and began her career as a physical therapist in a skilled rehabilitation facility in New York. She enhanced her skills with neurologic cases such as CVA, MS and Parkinson's disease as well amputations and prosthetic training. Nielsen moved to the VA/MD area in 2005 and started working with NovaCare. She transitioned to treating orthopedic and sports-related injuries with the same passion and dedication. Nielsen is a dry needling-certified therapist, and earned a certificate in the ReVital Cancer Rehabilitation program in June 2022. Her goal for each patient is to improve and maintain their function and wellness, which improves their lives every day. Nielsen and her husband enjoy traveling, watching movies and sports and finding a new restaurant for a satisfying meal.
