Are you struggling with pain that didn’t come from a sports injury? It’s more common than you might think, but there is hope.
Physical therapy will empower you to recuperate so you can get back to your former lifestyle and enjoy a healthier, easier life. And all while enjoying more independence from constant and repeated visits.
Have you or a loved one recently suffered from a stroke, acquired brain injury, or other neurological condition? Were you diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, or ALS?
Here at Capitol Physical Therapy, our team has received special training in the diagnosis and treatment of neurological conditions.
When it comes to injuries, those that come from sports tend to be the most dramatic. One simple misstep can derail you from enjoying a pastime or even your career.
But while it might seem life-changing, it doesn’t have to be. Physical therapy can help you recover and recuperate from sports and running injuries so you can get back to doing what you love.
When it comes to health, women can have unique concerns.
Whether it’s dealing with pelvic pain or incontinence due to pregnancy, postpartum diastasis recti, recovery after gender affirming surgeries for trans women, or many other issues, women are often taught to just live with them, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Physical therapy can help.
About Capitol Physical Therapy
When choosing a healthcare provider to work with, what makes you choose them? Affordability? Convenience? Location? These all play a role, sure. But more importantly, what makes you want to stick with them?
It’s a personal connection. A connection that lets you know you can trust them to have your best health in mind. It’s that personal connection we strive to create as soon as you walk through our door.
Founded in 2012 by Dr. Subha Nagasubramanian, Capitol Physical Therapy is dedicated to the following core tenets:
When you see a healthcare provider, you should feel like your therapist has been honest and transparent with you. After all, how can you make the best decisions about your health unless you know the facts?
Here at Capitol Physical Therapy, our goal is to make you feel like your therapist has been 100% honest and transparent with you about your health and your options.
Schooling is important, but it’s only the first step. After all, once you become complacent in your knowledge, you begin to stagnate. There are enough healthcare providers who just get the bare minimum of training and spend the rest of their lives resting on their laurels.
But you deserve better. You deserve someone who doesn’t just rest on the same old, outdated ideas your grandparents used. You deserve a healthcare provider dedicated to staying on the cutting edge of new knowledge and research in the field. And here at Capitol Physical Therapy, that’s exactly what you’ll get.
It’s easy to be dedicated to your craft when you love what you do. But what’s more important is being dedicated to the results you provide, to the best possible care for your clients, and being humble enough to recognize when someone else may be able to serve them better.
Here at Capitol Physical Therapy, our primary focus is always on delivering excellent service from start to finish. This is what helps ensure you, the patient, get what you need to feel your absolute best.

Our Physical Therapy Service
At Capitol Physical Therapy, we provide a variety of treatment services to help address the many health problems people face. Through a combination of services, we can offer solutions to many pain and injury related concerns you may be facing.
Gait training is the process of teaching you how to walk effectively. There are a number of different conditions that can cause difficulties with walking. Certain injuries, illnesses, and congenital conditions can cause you to need gait training. If you’ve encountered some issues with your gait due to illness or injury, physical therapy can help.
Telehealth is still an effective means of treatment even though there are some limitations compared to in-person therapy sessions. If you are concerned about health issues pertaining to in-person therapy sessions, please consider and choose telehealth to continue your treatment regime. Continuity of treatment is vital for managing your pain, maintain your recovery schedule, and preventing further injury.
Your vestibular system is located mostly within your inner ear, inside a series of tubes called your vestibular labyrinth. It’s responsible for providing your brain with information about movement. In particular, you can thank your vestibular system if you can: keep your balance, keep your head stable atop your body, maintain a good posture, remain stable while you move, and maintain your gaze on an object while moving.
If you’ve had a stroke or know someone who has, physical therapy services for stroke recovery can help stroke patients to get back to regular activities and self-care in their personal and professional lives. We design stroke treatment plans and exercises to help accelerate the recovery process to regain your quality of live sooner.

Frequently Asked Questions About Physical Therapy
If you have questions about physical therapy in general, or Capitol Physical Therapy’s approach in particular, you’re not alone.
Below, you’ll find some of the most common questions we get asked.
If you don’t see your question here, feel free to reach out.
In most cases, no. The District of Columbia is direct access, which means you can see a physical therapist without a doctor’s referral. Most health insurance companies will reimburse you for it as well. The only exception is if you’re on Medicare.
We accept most major health insurance companies. If you’re not sure, contact us and we’ll verify your coverage for you.
The answer to this question depends on your issues and your goals. In general, however, you’ll see your physical therapist more at first, and less as time goes on.
In general, no. There may be some exercises that push you a little beyond your comfort zone, but you should never feel anything more than a minor strain, the same way you would after a session at the gym. If your physical therapy treatment is painful, that’s a sign there’s something wrong. Stop the exercise and let your therapist know.
Certainly not! While athletes tend to benefit significantly from physical therapy, most people can benefit from physical therapy treatments.
