Paul Reed PT, DPT

Paul Reed, PT, DPT came to Virginia Beach from Phoenix, Arizona after joining the U.S. Navy in 1994 where he worked with the Seabees stationed at Naval Amphibious Base Little Creek.

Upon leaving the Navy, Paul attended Tidewater Community College where he earned an Associate’s Degree in Applied Science, and started practicing as a Physical Therapist Assistant. He earned his Doctor of Physical Therapy from Old Dominion University and joined Tidewater Physical Therapy in 2013.

He has a decade of experience in patient treatment and several years of experience in facility management and continues to enhance his clinical skills each day.

“As a physical therapist I believe that individualized treatment programs and patient education are vital components to successful outcomes in rehabilitation.  It is also important to take a proactive approach to your health care, and visiting a physical therapist for wellness treatments may help to prevent injury or illness.”

Paul has completed several continuing education courses in manual therapy and spinal rehabilitation  and volunteers on the Tidewater District Ethics Committee, a district within the Virginia Physical Therapy Association. 

He is married with two daughters and when he’s not in the clinic you’re likely to find him surfing, running, cycling or camping and fishing with his family.

 

Many of the physical therapists at Tidewater Physical Therapy Inc. hold Direct Access Certification through the Virginia Board of Physical Therapy.

Paul holds Direct Access Certification and is available to evaluate and treat patients without a prescription from a physician.
