Searching for KStar in the DC area...

This may be a foolish quest but I am desperately seeking a Kelly Starett-type Physical Therapist in the DC Metropolitan area. I am a 52 year old woman whose young son opened his own box in DC. I'm recovering from back surgery (lumbar discectomy) to repair a massive disc herniation that was crushing my sciatic nerve. The surgery went great - but I need to start physical therapy now with someone who really knows their way around the spine. I want someone to help me get back to CrossFit when I am sufficiently healed. I'm worried about encountering the "you'll never be able to do that again" attitude found in too many health professionals.

If anybody has any suggestions for a great PT in the DC area, I'd really appreciate it.

Hmm.

I know a lot of PT places in Maryland.... but to get you athletic again (as opposed to functional) I wouldnt necessarily send you to those places.

I'd help but yeah I'm just a lowly PT student...

I think your best bet at this point is to called around to some sports teams in the area (there's bunch in DC) and try to see who they use for PT. That's usually what I recommend and what tends to work out the best.

You can also search for some chiropractors, all the pro and college teams around DC will have one that works with their athletes.
Anthony Ricci, I think is in Maryland...search for him on the boards, if he can't help you, maybe he can get you headed in the right direction.

Yes, Anthony gives a lot of good advice on here. That would be a good choice.
