”I was a top ranked running back in the Northern Virginia area when I tore my ACL my senior year. I felt like my career and everything I worked for was gone. My first day in Physical Therapy I met Anna-Marie Hammond. I was still depressed from the injury, but once I met her I knew right at that moment I was in good hands. Anna-Marie is amazing she pushed me, encouraged me, and uplifted me everyday. She makes sure you DON'T QUIT and pushes your body a little bit past your limit, so that the next day you come in that much stronger. The clinic was always filled with love and laughter, but at the same time work was being done by everyone. Anna-Marie really cares about each and every person she is working with and also patients who are not working with her. She makes the entire clinic feel like a family. She is the most amazing therapist I've ever worked with and she really wants everyone that has been injured to go back to the way they were before. You never know how strong you are until being strong is all you have. She will engrave motivation in you so you will never quit and never give up. Now I am back and healthy all because she wasn't thinking about herself, but what was best for her patients. True service to humanity is the true service of God and I am blessed to have worked with her.

”Anna-Marie is the main reason I am doing so well in my recovery. After my ACL surgery, she pushed me every week and always kept me optimistic. She comforted me and had faith that I would be able to come back from the injury and play football. She knows when to push you and when to let up a little one day. She focuses all of her time and energy on you and nobody else. So you can tell she really cares. She is a wonderful woman and I will always be grateful for all she has done for me!!!“

”Recently, I was a patient of Anna-Marie Hammond's. I had a severe injury, a broken right shoulder that required surgery and intensive PT. The Surgeon explained that it would take 8 to 9 months of intense PT, and it DID! Never once in all those 9 months, did Anna-Marie ever waiver in what she believed was the best course of PT for me. She encouraged me to keep pushing myself. She was there for me every time I waived, and each time I made progress she was also there to congratulate me. She is an extremely professional caring person. Who takes an interest in her patients insuring that they receive all the best of care. I would recommend Elite Sports Medicine & PT to anyone who is in need of PT.“

”Thanks so much to Elite's staff for your assistance in addressing a very challenging case of plantar fasciitis. In particular I want to thank Brittany West for her technical skills and strategy in helping me to resume my physical exercises and running. I struggled for months visiting with several specialists, undergoing different protocols, and several weeks with physical therapists. None of these specialists and their strategies appeared to help with my stubborn plantar fasciitis. After a few sessions, Brittany started to gain my confidence, and with a reasonable time, I started to experience progress. I am back to running with great respect for my continued recovery. I have shared my experience with several of my colleagues and will not hesitate to recommend Elite Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy in the future. “

”I have been receiving physical therapy from Elite Sports Medicine & Physical Therapy since October 2014 after being in an accident involving three cars. The level of physical therapy, care and teamwork are the best. It has been a pleasure attending my appointments and interacting with the up beat staff. They think outside the box to help their patients achieve the best results. I would recommend Elite to my family and friends. Before my accident I had a total eight surgeries on my knees. I have been to other physical therapist in the area and none had the professionalism and knowledge like the therapists at Elite. Elite is the best sports medicine and physical therapy the Manassas, Bristow, Gainesville, and Haymarket area.

”Anna-Marie is a very compassionate person and she brings that compassion to her job. I had rotator cuff surgery and she worked with me to help gain my mobility and strength back. She was with me every step of the way and she did not give me more than I could handle. She was always monitoring what I was doing and if I was struggling she made sure I stopped and took a break for few minutes. Because of her I was able to get my strength back and return to my job. Anna Marie is very good at what she does and if I have to have physical therapy again she will be my first choice. I trusted her to help me and she did!
