Meet Our Physical Therapists
Stephen Vesely Physical Therapist
Graduating with his Doctor of Physical Therapy from Virginia Commonwealth University in May 2013, Dr. Vesely joined the Advanced Wellness Centre team August 2013. With a peaked interest in manual therapy throughout his studies, Stephen spent 24 weeks of his clinical affiliations at three different out-patient orthopedic practices in the Richmond and Fredericksburg areas where he received advanced manual training for spinal and extremity conditions. In addition, he completed 12 weeks in skilled nursing and cancer rehabilitation, providing him with a well-rounded scope of physical therapy and medical practice.
Stephen’s true passion lies in utilizing his hands-on approach and strong clinical background in exercise, health, and wellness to restore pain-free mobility and function. His prior training and techniques match our holistic approach, where elimination of true body impairments, and not just symptoms, are the focus of rehabilitation. In his experiences, clients recover more quickly and with less risk for re-injury following physical therapy that pairs manual and manipulative techniques with therapeutic exercises, education, and preventive measures.
Outside his professional career, Stephen enjoys spending time with his family and friends, playing and writing music, bike riding, weight lifting, and doing anything outdoors. He is so excited to contribute to and be part of a team of experts who share a common goal in delivering the highest quality of holistic care to its clients.
