Outpatient therapy: Reston Therapy & Fitness Center

At the Reston Therapy & Fitness Center, we provide comprehensive outpatient rehabilitation services for patients, including:

Physical therapy

Reston Therapy & Fitness Center offers physical therapy (PT) to help you protect, strengthen or restore muscle and motor function.

Medically supervised fitness

Improved fitness and muscle strength are essential to recovering from many illnesses and injuries, yet traditional exercise facilities aren't equipped to address the unique health needs of each individual. That is why Reston Therapy and Fitness Center offers medically supervised fitness—a transition plan from post-physical therapy to a home exercise program or your normal gym routine.

Exercise is being recognized as medicine worldwide and Doctors are starting to refer patients to start exercising. Lack of exercise and being sedentary has contributed to many common health problems today. Reston Therapy and Fitness Center at The Reston Hospital offers a medically supervised fitness program that is tailored completely to your goals and needs. The medically supervised fitness program caters to people who have or have had:

  • Cardiac disease, pulmonary disease, cerebrovascular accident (stroke)
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Diabetes, dyslipidemia
  • Osteoporosis, osteopenia, arthritis, low back pain
  • Cancer, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia and many more

Many people would like to exercise but don’t have the proper knowledge on how to get started or what they should be doing. Traditional fitness centers typically cater to a younger and more independent population. These facilities often offer minimal assessments and minimal assistance in exercise program setup, progression, guidance, and equipment orientation/instruction.

What is a medically supervised fitness program?
  • A fitness program that is specific to your certain medical conditions and needs
  • Supervised by an Exercise Physiologist that tracks specific vitals and exercise progression
  • Involves a medical evaluation, fitness assessment, and constant re-evaluations for progression
  • Includes one on one training for those who cannot exercise on their own or would like direct supervision

To learn more about Reston Therapy & Fitness Center and our Medically Supervised Fitness Program, please call 703-689-9250.

Occupational therapy

Our occupational therapy (OT) program focuses on improving your daily activities and regaining physical independence. Our occupational therapists assist with helping you relearn skills for daily living, like bathing, toileting and personal hygiene. We can also help determine if assistive devices or adjustments are necessary at home.

Speech therapy

Our speech therapists develop the proper rehabilitation plan in the effort to help you reach your highest motor, neurological and overall oral capabilities. We provide a wide range of services to help you achieve the highest possible level of speech and swallowing abilities:

  • Aphasia: Focusing on reading, writing, speaking, comprehension, word finding and math skills
  • Cognition and memory: Developing strategies for patients to improve attention, problem solving and memory
  • Facial weakness: Emphasizing the movement and coordination of weakened facial muscles in therapy to improve the quality of speech
  • Swallowing: Modified barium swallow studies (MBS), also called videofluoroscopy, to analyze a patient’s swallowing biomechanics; Swallowing exercises and patient education on identifying appropriate diet textures, improving swallow abilities and reducing the risk of aspiration
  • Voice: Improving an individual’s vocal quality, reducing vocal cord abuse, managing nodules, optimizing breathing patterns and increasing speaking volume
