Sentara Therapy Center

Direct Access to Physical Therapy Services

Sentara strives to help patients achieve their personal goals for rehabilitation. Patients recovering from surgery, injury or illness can count on over 44 conveniently located Sentara Therapy Centers to provide high quality therapy care, including spine therapy, lymphedema (therapy to reduce fluid retention and tissue swelling), sports medicine, manual therapy, aquatics, comprehensive rehabilitation programs with physical, speech and occupational therapies and other subspecialty clinical disciplines.

Located throughout Virginia and northeastern North Carolina, Sentara Therapy Centers partner with YMCAs to offer services inside of these facilities to improve the health of our local communities. In 2017 Sentara Therapy Center – Edinburgh opened in Chesapeake. The center is located in an outpatient campus that also offers a combined family and pediatric practice.

The Virginia law now allows direct access, where patients can begin therapy services without a physician referral. This new access is empowering people to connect with a physical therapist for guidance in restoring and maintaining a healthy body.
