Under the direction of Dr. Silveri and his partners, Fair Oaks Orthopedic Associates has a very robust and accomplished physical therapy unit which specializes in rehabilitative services for all age groups and for all orthopaedic and spinal conditions.
Dr. Silveri has worked closely for over 20 years with one of the few spine specific experts in spinal rehabilitation medicine In the northern Virginia area. In most cases Dr.Silveri advocates conservative management for spinal disorders and will utilize the expertise of physical therapy and modalities such as dry needling techniques, ultrasound, Electrical stimulation and other postural and ergonomic educational opportunities to improve the health and well-being of his patients and their spinal ailments.
In the event that surgical intervention is needed, his team is able to facilitate a transition to full recovery post-operatively, by coordinating strengthening and conditioning during the healing phase when deemed appropriate by Dr. Silveri.
Although patients have the opportunity to choose any physical therapy unit they would like, Dr. Silveri encourages all of this patient’s to visit the Fair Oaks Orthopedic physical therapy unit on the fourth floor of his building Suite 403, meet his staff, and consider exploring further treatment at that location. Its proximity to Dr. Silveri’s clinical practice, and the ability to remain in close communication with his physical therapists, allows for maximal benefit during the rehabilitation process.
