About Bodies in Motion Physical Therapy
Michael Mastrostefano started Bodies In Motion Physical Therapy in 2002 to put into practice his philosophy of placing quality care first. As the owner, Michael has made decisions which support this philosophy. This includes a bonus structure which uniquely rewards physical therapists for the outcome of their treatment, not the amount they bill for patient care. When employed at other clinics Mike was frustrated by the lack of time he was able to spend with his patients. “Literally, I would feel as if I was triaging the problem without having the time to investigate or treat the cause of the problem. There were occasions when I identified a factor contributing to the condition, but would have to stop before treating it, since my next appointment was walking in the door. At Bodies In Motion Physical Therapy, my vision of a clinic where quality is placed first is realized.”
We are committed to strong communication with the referring physician, and send initial evaluative reports as well as regular progress reports.
We encourage patients to reach their full potential in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
We have passion for what we do, and we take pride in our reputation.
Continuing education is of prime importance at our clinics. Therapists at Bodies In Motion Physical Therapy regularly attend seminars and courses to enhance their knowledge base and sharpen their skills. Therapists are also involved in teaching continuing education seminars to experienced physical therapists, and mentoring students enrolled in nationally accredited physical therapy programs. We dedicate office time to hone our skills. This is ongoing, and occurs 3 times per month. We also support the professional growth of our clinicians by hosting continuing education seminars, and by providing our physical therapists with one of the most generous continuing education stipends in the industry.
Since its opening, the practice has steadily grown with clinics in Falls Church, Reston and Fairfax, and a continued determination to provide therapist delivered care at the highest level of excellence. Our staff includes multiple therapists with different backgrounds and specialty interests. Each new member of the team is carefully chosen for his/her therapeutic skills, knowledge and philosophies.
