My wife had a muscle pull and she had a bad pain and we were having trouble getting appointments, we called in and Ms.Suba was so kind to take her in and tried to get us in after her busy appointment and patiently listened to her and took her in on... that same day without scheduled appointment . She’s is an excellent angel who helped her and gave her the best therapy and also put her on next appointments.We got to say many thanks to her, which will not be just enough. Will definitely remember her and genuinely recommend her to anyone who needs any assistance in DMV , she is the best.read more
Subha is a fantastic physical therapist. It’s clear that she actually cares about her patients. Subha goes above and beyond to help her patients get better and continues her own education to be up to date on new treatments. Unlike some other PTs... I’ve been to, she’s very involved and hands on for stretches/exercises, and is extremely knowledgeable about the body and how injuries impact other parts of the body. I would absolutely recommend Subha. She accepted my insurance and her office did a verification to help me understand my financial responsibility.read more
I'm so grateful to have connected with Dr. Subha and Capitol PT. In addition to healing decades-long pain in my back, neck, shoulders, and jaw, I'm learning so much about my body. Subha Nagasubramanian is a truly gifted physical therapist. She has... intuitive and deep knowledge of the body. And She's able to teach that knowledge, too.read more
I have had years of aches and pains in my knees and lower back. Having gone to numerous physical therapists and PT offices in the past, I was a bit worn down by the process and losing faith in my body's ability to recover properly. Thankfully, I... chose to try physical therapy again and I am so thankful that I did.Dr. Maya Drummond is absolutely excellent. She takes the time to ask you questions about your pain, where it is, why it may be happening and then walks you through exercises to improve your condition. She will also explain how to prevent future injury, and how the body is all connected. She even would go into the mind-body connection at times! The attention to detail, and the knowledge of the human body that Maya possesses are second to none. I had full faith in her, and she has me back to playing soccer pain-free and I couldn't be happier!The best thing about Maya, and all the other PTs at Capitol Physical Therapy, is that you have their time. They are with you 100% of the time, watching your form, correcting it, and improving the way your body works. No assistants, it's them and that builds the connection and faith in the recovery process.Finally, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention how friendly and helpful the rest of the staff at the front desk are. They are fantastic, positive and help facilitate the necessary atmosphere to make healing possible. If I ever need more physical therapy in the future, Capitol Physical Therapy is THE one and only place I will go to.read more
Dr. Subha is an amazing practicioner who knows her stuff and truly cares about her patients. Lot of PTs could learn from her in terms of expertise, bedside manner, and professionalism. She is the highest quality provider I’ve ever worked with! It... was a blessing to have her as my doctor.read more
Dr. Maya Drummond provided excellent and compassionate service for my physical therapy, not only addressing immediate issues but giving very helpful preventive advice. Unlike larger PT offices that are usually crowded with clients spread out over an... open factory-floor setting, CPT is very focused on you as an individual, and they take into account the others you work with outside their practice on your physical well-being including personal trainers. That's a really nice touch - it's more holistic than I normally get from the huge PT operations linked to big specialist medical practices (orthopedists, etc).read more
My physical therapy experience with Dr. Valerie is the best I could have imagined! I was searching for a knowledgeable, people-centered physical therapist before a major gender-affirmation surgery. Finding the perfect physical therapist with the... combination of skills and openness for my particular need wasn't easy, so I was relieved and thrilled after my first consultation. I was immediately comforted by Dr. Valerie's warmth, encouraged by her expertise, and pleasantly surprised by her willingness to jump into things right away! I was in great shape as I entered surgery because of my early sessions with her; and my post-surgery work with her made all the difference in my recovery. I might even have more flexibility and strength after surgery than I did before, even with a serious functional fitness routine. And most of all, I always looked forward to our appointments, appreciated her grace with traffic, learned new things about my body, and benefited by the fact that CPT is in network, so I paid only $30 per session, which was meaningful after having over 12 sessions. I can't recommend Dr. Valerie enough!read more
WHAT A GREAT EXPERIENCE. ONE VISIT AND MY ISSUE WAS COMPLETELY RESOLVED.VALERIE WAS SENSATIONAL: informed, wise, patient, delightful.

I couldn't recommend Capitol Physical Therapy more! Everyone from the administrative staff to my physical therapist was friendly and professional. Making and adjusting appointments was easy.

Finding a medical office that is brimming with such an amazing team is a rare find!read more
Wonderful, positive, supportive team that really listens and helped me meet my goals. Valerie is fantastic and did an excellent job diagnosing the root causes of my pain and helping me get better. Absolutely recommended!
First, the office staff was incredibly warm and communicative; they were very prompt in getting back to me, and it was easy to set up and move appointments as necessary.Second, Dr. Drummond was incredibly helpful. Beyond being kind and thoughtful,... she has amazing tact. I came in with lower back pain, and her attention and help has really helped. I highly recommend the practice.read more

I saw Dr. Subha for help with my upper back.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Subha and Capitol Physical Therapy.read more
Maya Drummond is one of the great physiotherapist I met recently for my lower back pain. She is knowledgeable, experienced, honest, and kind. She restored my lower back from all pain and restricted movements in just few sittings. She taught me how... to work while getting on bed, coming out of bed, and some exercises. Honestly, she is a miracle worker. I would return to her whenever I might need physical therapy. I recommend her highly.read more
Subha Nagasubramanian has been amazing helping me heal from two major orthopedic surgeries. Every time I come for a session, she is able to make even the smallest adjustment that makes the biggest difference in my gait and getting my independence... back. She listens to all my concerns and gives me helpful solutions. I have gone to physical therapy many times throughout my life and have never had someone as knowledgeable and precise as Subha. After a lifetime of pain, it can me hard to not get discouraged, but Subha always lends an ear and gives really beneficial encouragement and perspective. I am really grateful I chose Capitol PT for physical therapy and I highly recommend them to anyone!read more
Subbha is amazing! For the second time after a fall, I couldn't kneel without tears and had patellar instability from a partial tear that was painful/swollen to the touch. Went to see Subbha in Feb 2022 b/c not being able to kneel was upending my... life, especially mat Pilates practice. Saw Subbha twice a week and by early April, I was cautiously kneeling and my knee was no longer painful to the touch. By the end of April I "graduated" and am spending five hours gardening with knee pads and no pain. Subbha is a master physical therapist and a kind/understanding practitioner.read more

I have repeatedly tried to post this review under my name, KAREN GREENAWAY, and am not savvy enough to figure out how to do it. This is my husband's name and photo!Regardless, last spring I had the good fortune of an appointment with VALERIE... RUCKER as a follow up to a recent, mild stroke. The issue was dizziness. Well, in ONE visit, Valerie put me through different painless exercises, told me how to deal with the dizziness when it occurred, and I have been TOTALLY FINE EVERY SINCE. NO MORE DIZZINESS.The entire experience was professional, easy to make my appointment and the location was perfect for my hotel, 4 minute walk, as I flew into DC to see her and some other doctors.Valerie was compassionate, thorough, wise, a total delight.

I have been going to Capitol Physical Therapy on and off for the last year. They have become my go to for back, neck, and most other muscle or back pain. Capitol Physical Therapy is truly amazing. Subha is very knowledgeable, caring and truly... listened to me and really addresses the source of my pain. Valerie is really amazing too as she is able to provide real pain relief in just one visit and has this very calming and supportive aura. The simple exercises that both have provided me really helped me prevent the everyday causes of pain. Also Capitol Physical Therapy really provides a higher level of privacy and care than other physical therapist. When you make an appointment with them you will be seen by either Subha or Valerie for the full time of your appointment. I do not normally gush this much about my therapist but trust me, if you have back or neck pain issues Capitol Physical Therapy provides long terms solutions.read more
As an ultra endurance athlete I was used to enduring pain and suffering. I was also used to doctors and physical therapists not quite listening to or understanding my needs. Then I was fortunate enough to meet Subha Nagasubramanian @ Capitol... Physical Therapy. Subha always listened to me and understood that I knew my own body and sports fitness goals better than anyone else. Subha worked with me to diagnose longtime ailments, breakdown and rebuild poor mechanics, and develop more efficient patterns of motion. Subha took the time to answer questions and explain concepts so that I fully understood how I can ensure a strong and successful recovery following certain certain surgical procedures. Subha also set me up for future success by teaching me new exercises and approaches to ensure my complete health and wellness over the long term. Thanks to Subha for getting this humpty-dumpty back together again as I’m so very thankful to be back doing what I love and playing outdoors again.read more
Dr. Subha Nagasubramanian is the best. She's very patient and careful, and is very good at explaining the hows and whys of mobility issues -- and what I can do resolve them along with her work. She offers great advice (in person or via email)... whenever I have questions.read more
I definitely recommend this practice, especially Dr. Subha! She listened to what I was saying and provided great care to my needs as well as instructions for exercises for me to do at home. She is why my back and hip pain have all but disappeared!
CPT is a well run operation and Subha is an amazing Physical Therapist. She quickly figured out what the specific issues were in each session as my shoulder ailment (AC joint separation) evolved over two months, and treated it at each stage very... effectively. She explained clearly, in plain English what was going on and what I could do at home to make progress between sessions. I also appreciated the convenience of online booking, bill paying and the fact CPT submitted claims directly to my health insurance company.read more

Subha is attentive and knowledgeable. She has helped me with numerous conditions. Each time I hurt myself, she gets me back on track. First it was a low back injury.

I am convinced she will have me good as new in a few weeks. She is an outstanding therapist.read more

After just minutes of our first session, I felt so much better. Highly... recommend! Also the receptionist is very kind and welcoming!read more
Subha knew exactly where the injury was just by a couple minutes observation and her fingers knew precisely where to press to ease the knots and pain that had been there for over a month. Who knew one could look forward to a doctor visit? My only... regret was not finding my way to her immediately.read more
I have had a fantastic experience with Capitol PT. I've needed regular PT for over 10yrs and have worked with a dozen PT's, and Subha is the best by a large margin! She knows exactly how to help each week, and does so with such a gentle attitude.... Her healing abilities refresh me every visit. I've also had great experience scheduling and changing appointments. I offer my very best recommendation, even for fear she gets booked up! Thank you Capitol PT!read more

I have been to physical therapy several times and this was by far the best experience I have had. The staff is friendly and helpful. Making an appointment was quick and easy. And my therapist Valerie is the absolute best. She listened to my... concerns, she explained things very clearly and positively supported my progress. Valerie made sure I understood the plan and what to do on my own. And by the end of treatment sessions, my goals had been achieved. Thank you Valerie and Capitol Physical Therapy.read more
I had an excellent experience with Capitol Physical Therapy. I came to them with intense running-related hip and knee pain in May 2020. They set me up with a virtual appointment and Taylor was able to assess my situation through zoom (which I... thought was pretty dang impressive.) I've had three follow up appointments in the office since then and have always felt COVID-safe (masks, good ventilation, not at all crowded, etc.) After a few months of working with Taylor and semi-diligently doing the stretches and exercises she assigned me, I can run again without pain! I'm absolutely delighted, and couldn't have asked for a better experience with Capital PT.read more
My right knee locked andI was unable to straighten my leg for some days. Injections helped some but the intense pain remained. I am grateful that I have Dr. Nagasubramanium of Capitol Physical Therapy as my Physical Therapist. She thinks out of... the box and treats not only my injured knee but the reasons such as posture that caused the injury as well. With her assistance I am able to walk better , my muscles are stronger, and I have a more positive view of life as a result. I might add that I am 91 years of age.I recommend her wholeheartedly.read more

After months of other PT services I found Dr. Nagasubramanian (Capitol PT). I have had the most improvement under her guidance.Their staff is friendly, always professional and gracious and the offices are well appointed. Capitol PT will listen to... what you have to say, answer all your questions, and make adjustments if you need them.I couldn’t give a higher recommendation to others to try them out. Capitol PT is fantastic and earns your trust.read more
I had been suffering from neck and upper back pain for several years. Mainly due to poor posture at my computer and overuse of phone/laptop. I had tried several PT options over the years but nothing seemed to help. I was getting very disheartened... and decided to consult with Subha on a friend's suggestion. I heard such great things about her that I decided to fly to DC from Ann Arbor, MI to see her. I made the best decision! She was through in her questions to understand my problem and very empathetic and reassuring. The work she did with me (manual manipulation) was fantastic. Then she showed me a set of exercises and had me do them with her so that she could correct. Her instructions are extremely clear and precise, including cautioning me on what not to do. I came back home and started the exercises. As she had predicted, within a couple of months, my long standing neck pain got better by almost 90%. It's not magic. I need to keep up with the exercises and I know that when I don't, it comes back. I am getting ready to do follow-up/maintenance sessions with her remotely. I wish I lived in DC and could see her in person more regularly. I have only fantastic things to say about her work - she is professional. empathetic, highly effective, knowledgeable and kind. She has helped me immensely. Thanks so much!read more
This is hands down the best place to get treatment for healing any physical issues--whether they are injuries related to sports and other recreational activities, or from daily hazards like sitting improperly at your desk. We highly recommend... Capitol Physical Therapy and have relied on Subha for more than 10+ years to take care of us! She is a very empathetic therapist who provides a holistic overview to get to the root of a problem, and will provide a contextual method for healing. It's worth a visit even to just do a check-in and overall assessment.read more
I became a patient after a leg injury and subsequent surgery. Subha listened carefully and explained her treatments and guidance clearly. The treatments I received at Capitol Physical Therapy were crucial to my recovery. After a recent back... problem, I returned and have made great progress with Subha's help. She gives exercises and movements for me to do in between visits and I think these have helped my recovery go faster.The office is well run and efficient and it is easy to schedule appointments. The location is convenient.read more
Capitol PT is the best! Subha is amazing - professional, exceptionally competent and always encouraging. My recovery from knee replacement surgery was so much easier than I expected. I give all the credit to her!
Subha is substantively superb and always has useful advice. The entire team is professional, friendly and responsive. A patient couldn't ask for better treatment!
I am so happy to be with Capital Physical Therapy, they are the best. They have provided me with so much education on how to use my body the right way. Before I started it was hard for me to walk now it getting better each day, I love it.
Subha is the best. She doesn't just give a list of exercises like some other physical therapy offices, but works her magic massage to really feel what is wrong and to make the best plan for you. Every time I go she makes my old residual... injuries/tightness feel better instantly, plus I walk away with a plan of action and more knowledgeable than before. I highly recommend Capitol Physical Therapy!read more
Subha was great! I was training for a marathon and had some pain in my left hip and quad. Even after just one session, my hip started to feel better.

I would highly recommend!read more
Subha is amazing. She was observant from the moment I walked in, identifying the deeper physical concerns that the eye can’t see. She is very knowledgeable and is personal in addressing the issue. She followed up with all my exercises timely and I... never needed to wait before seeing her. Additionally, the booking system is seamless and straight forward. Highly recommend seeing Subha.read more
