Restorative Therapy Company: A center for integrative and holistic health

Contributed by Andrew Lantz and Katie Kramer

At Restorative Therapy Company (RTC), we help active people and those seeking a more active lifestyle in the wider Virginia Beach area to quickly recover from injury and decrease chronic pain, so that they can continue playing their sport, exercising, and enjoying their lives. We also help our clients and patients to avoid surgery, limit the destructiveness of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis, and decrease their dependence on pain medication. We do so through one-on-one goal oriented physical therapy, one-on-one medical therapeutic yoga, and traditional and accessible yoga classes. Our patients and clients span all ages, abilities, and backgrounds and we treat issues from head to toe.

We are lucky that many skilled practitioners in physical therapy, chiropractic, sports medicine, massage, yoga etc. are in our area. But there are also many clinics with not so great quality care, where you could end up wasting your time and money on treatments that may be unnecessary and even dangerous.

At RTC, our physical therapists focus on treating the causes of your pain and not just your symptoms. Our clinical decisions are based off of what you as the patient desire and need- not our bottom line. Unlike most traditional PT clinics, we do not utilize assistants and techs to carry out treatments. We provide our patients with at least one hour of uninterrupted one-on-one quality treatment, performed by a physical therapist, where we can focus on the root of the problem. We dedicate this time to educate our patients on their prognosis and important lifestyle changes, perform manual therapy techniques to reduce pain and stiffness, and teach functional and restorative exercise to achieve personal and functional goals. We do not just have our patients perform exercises that they could easily find and perform themselves at home from the internet. Bottom line- we don’t waste your time on things that you could just be doing at home on your own.

We understand that the beauty
