Andrew Dombek, PT, MSPT, CMTPT, CGFI
Owner and Founder
Andrew has been living and working in Loudoun County since 2004. He previously worked at Suburban Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland and Binh Tran’s Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine in Washington, DC. Having had enough of the city, he decided to take his brand of physical therapy out to the suburbs of Virginia where he opened his first PT clinic, Arthritis and Sports Physical Therapy (in Sterling). After two years there he decided it was time to go out on his own in 2006 and set up AID Performance Physical Therapy.
Andrew works extensively with all his physical therapists and spends a vast amount of his time ensuring our treatment plans keep pace with the rapid advancements that make physical therapy so effective and such a 'go-to' profession for people aged 35-64.
Andrew famously worked with many of Washington DC’s finest from the everyman up to the titans of industry and politics. Also while at PTSM he had the opportunity to work exclusively with some of the finest athletes and performers who were in town performing at Kennedy Center.
Andrew enjoys working with athletes of all ages and is now the team physical therapist for the Broad Run High School Spartans football team as well as many of their other school sports. He does not limit himself to just the Spartans, he proudly works with many of the top athletes from the surrounding Ashburn high schools like Briar Woods, Rockridge, John Champe, Freedom, and Stone Bridge. He is a specialist in treating the lower back, hip, knee, ankle and shoulder. Andrew is excellent at empathizing with his clients as he has lived through a myriad of injuries in his life including breaking his ankle, wrist and thumb, spraining his ankles, wrists and shoulders, straining his lower back, neck, quads and hamstrings, pulled and torn muscles, as well as undergoing lower back surgery at 17 (ending his football playing career) and knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus. Having been through all of these injuries throughout out his life, Andrew is a rare expert in understanding the psyche of returning to your sport after injury. Helping people stay active and giving back to his community are his passions. These characteristics have helped Andrew become an expert Physical Therapist and his clinic become the premier clinic for runners in Northern Virginia.
Andrew is a very proud Dad of a beautiful girl named Eden, and when he's not at work, or spending time with his wife Tanya and daughter Eden, you can likely find him in the gym, on his bike, in a swimming pool or out on the streets running. In his spare time, Andrew helps coach his daughter’s basketball team and formerly was one of her Recreational Soccer Team Coaches.
Fact: Ask Andrew about how he helped a young baseball Pitcher become the first major league pitcher to ever come back from a medial flexor tendon (the muscles on the inside of his right elbow) re-attachment procedure.
