Dr. Andrew Rothschild, PT, DPT, FAAOMPT, Clinical Director

Dr. Andrew Rothschild has been a practicing physical therapist since graduating with honors from Virginia Commonwealth University School of Allied Health in 2006. He is a Board Certified Orthopedic Specialist and is also a Fellow in the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy. He is one of the few residency and fellowship-trained Physical Therapists practicing in the Richmond area.

His advanced training in the field of orthopedic manual therapy, including spinal manipulation and dry needling, has helped establish him as a respected clinician among both his patients and his peers. Since undergoing a spinal fusion himself at the age of 23, Dr. Rothschild has a unique understanding and appreciation for the rehab process and what it takes to return to optimal function. He has particular interest in the prevention and treatment of low back pain as well as neck pain and headache along with general wellness, fitness and nutrition. Dr. Rothschild also has a passion for learning and teaching, and teaches continuing education courses for physical therapists several times throughout the year. When not in the clinic or teaching out of town, Dr. Rothschild enjoys spending his time with his family, which includes his wife, Sarah, an assistant professor at VCU, their four year-old daughter Cameron, and their two dogs, Ainsley and Toby. His hobbies include reading, writing, and strength training with kettlebells.
