Excellence Through Personal Attention

Physical Restoration & Sports Medicine, in Sterling Virginia, specializes in orthopedic and sports physical therapy. Our therapists have a long history in Loudoun County and we are dedicated to getting you back to your desired level of performance. Often, injury or pain is the result of long term compensation for underlying dysfunction, which can impede your recovery. Other times, injury is the result of direct trauma, with its accompanying pain and limited mobility and use.

Our goal is to provide an atmosphere to optimize your healing and recovery. Through prompt and appropriate treatment using hands-on-care as well as state of the art technology, we can contribute to a faster return to work, daily activities, hobbies and sports.

We accept most insurance including Medicare & Worker’s Comp.


The act of bringing back something that existed before, a restoring to an unimpaired or improved condition.

Physical Restoration uses the knowledge and insight as a physical therapist to minimize or remove the compensatory responses of the body to daily activity. Often, this inherent compensatory activity gets in the way of full function and/ or recovery of the body to stress and injury.

We treat a wide range of injuries and ailments, from ankle sprains and lumbar pain to shoulder and rotator cuff injuries and post surgical rehabilitation. With a long history of education, training, and research

We seek to minimize the time from, providing an optimal state for recovery.  This means “getting you back, getting you better.” For an injured athlete, it is ensuring a thorough, safe, and quick recovery. For the non-athlete, it means a quicker, thorough recovery, minimizing the debilitation. It is about “finding” your place and being on the journey to regain it.

Personalized Care & Education

Our highly trained staff treats every patient as if he or she is a family member or personal friend. We realize that as a consumer, you have a choice as to where you receive your rehabilitation care. We would be grateful for the opportunity to assist in your recovery.


After initial training and certification as an athletic trainer, involving five years in minor league baseball, Marc graduated in 1987 from Temple University as a physical therapist. He has been in Sterling since 1990. Studying the “inter-connectness” of the body, he has been treating not only competitive athletes, but the numerous and general assortment of musculoskeletal disorders and injuries. Ongoing research leads to a general

Functional and “postural” dysfunction our bodies can cope with to allow us to keep moving, up to a point, benefitting by a “restoration “to regain lost mechanics and strength.

Our ongoing research involving the throwing arm in sports has allowed us to change not only the way youth, scholastic, and college player’s injuries are managed, but also to shed light upon and improve the care of the general shoulder injured adult.

As a runner, the insights gained from minimalist running have enhanced the care not only of runners, but in general anybody using their two legs. Much of lumbar spinal dysfunction and degeneration relates to the general function of the lumbar spine as it related to the hips and lower legs.


Lori graduated with her BS in physical therapy from Ohio University in 1991. She started her career in in-patient rehabilitation but changed to out-patient orthopedics in 1993 when she moved to Virginia. She specializes in manual physical therapy and restoring optimum biomechanics, especially of the pelvis and lower extremities. She is skilled in scar mobilization, orthotics, post-surgical ACL rehabilitation, general knee and ankle rehabilitation, joint replacement pre and post-operative, return to sports, sacral and coccyx mobilization, and core-first strategies. Lori is a firm believer in patient education and desires for patients to understand how to maintain their optimum biomechanics after physical therapy is over.

Outside of physical therapy Lori enjoys spending time with her family, loves the outdoors, nature photography and volunteer work with middle school kids.
