AKPT is committed to helping all our patients stay healthy!
AKPT remains open in a limited capacity for in-person visits.
Update: January 13, 2021:
As COVID cases continue to rise, AKPT remains committed to following all CDC guidelines to keep our staff and patients healthy.
Please review the following AKPT COIVD procedures.
- Masks are required! CDC recommended surgical masks, 2 ply pleated masks with filter or 3 ply masks for optimal safety. We ask all patients to comply with these mask requirements. No paper or gaiter masks will be allowed.
- Temperature checks, hand washing and COVID surveys are required.
- If you are experiencing any symptoms at all, please call to reschedule your appointment.
- If you have tested positive for COVID and were in our facilities within 2 weeks of that positive test, please notify us immediately.
Update: April 28, 2020:
AKPT continues to remain open, operating out of our McLean location only at this time.
We have been able to return our employees back to work on a limited schedule thanks to the payroll protection program. If you would like to schedule an in person visit with your therapist they are now avaliable!
Evisits will continue to be avaliable if you would like to stay home and continue social distancing
Please call the McLean location to schedule.
As we are starting to see a slight increase in patients returning to seek care we are updating one our current policies.
AKPT IS REQUESTING ALL PATIENTS WHERE FACE MASKS OR COVERINGS WHEN IN THE CLINIC.
The CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies). Although most state and local governments do not mandate the use of face coverings in public settings, the CDC has reported that recent studies show a significant portion of individuals with the virus lack symptoms and can transmit the virus. With this knowledge, we believe it is simply in everyone’s best interest to use masks or face coverings to curb the spread of this disease.
While AKPT can’t force patients to wear face coverings we ask that all patients please try their best to do so out of respect for our PTs, AKPT staff and the other patients in the clinic.
We will continue our no visitor policy until social distancing rules are lifted.
Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this time.

We will make post operative cases and acute injuries a priority inorder to reduce patient exposure in doctor offices and urgent cares.
We are monitoring this evolving pandemic situation very closely on a daily and sometimes hourly basis. We continue to follow all CDC recommendations for precautions, cleaning procedures and exposure. We are screening all patients as they come for their appointments. We expect any patient feeling ill or potentially has been exposed to the coronavirus to call our office and cancel their appointments. No visitors will be allowed with patients as we are following strict guidelines of no more than 10 people in the clinic at a time. Our promise to you is to keep a safe and clean environment for those who are in need of our services the most.
As physical therapists, we feel it is our professional responsibility to serve our community in ways that can help flatten the curve. Physical therapists can provide valuable services to help reduce pain and treat acute injuries. In the state of VA we have 30 day direct access, which means a patient can be treated for up to 30 days without needing a doctor’s prescription.
We have also instituted E-Visits, which will allow any established patients to communicate with their provider to seek guidance and help while self-isolating or social distancing.
Our personal training staff will also be offering discounted virtual training sessions.
