Welcome to MMA & Sports Rehab
Physical Therapy Clinic

Dr. Ujjwal Shakya of MMA & Sports Rehab appreciates and advocates for his thriving Northern Virginia community of by offering flexible weekend appointment times. Using his first-hand experience with demanding educational pursuits, work schedules and family commitments, he meets the challenge of offering premium physical therapy during hours his Arlington County neighbors can live with, including early mornings at 6 am (M, Tu, Th), 7 am (W, F) and Sundays from 8 am – 4 pm. His wide scope of availability continues to enhance his expertise and ensure the quality of life for countless patients in the DMV area. Be it a performance checkup or for an unexpected bodily injury, Dr. Ujjwal makes your needs his priority.

His initial evaluation includes observation of static and movement patterns, pain provocation tests, active, passive, and resisted tests, specific joint tests, specific ligament tests if appropriate, specific neurologic testing, and functional testing. Rather than simply focusing on the actual painful/affected area, Dr. Shakya examines a patient as a “whole person,” determining the source of the problem/tissue dysfunction and figuring out how the surrounding joints and various tissues can affect the current impairments. He correlates all the findings and provides a specific physical therapy/manual therapy diagnosis, in addition to developing a specific treatment plan for the patient. His true care and concern for each patient is evident in outpatient physical therapy session.
