WHY POTOMAC PHYSICAL MEDICINE

Our Mission

Transforming How the World Moves…One Patient at a Time

HOW WE DO THAT

We offer complete resolution of the problem or significant improvement. Appointments always confirmed and on time. We take the time to explain the issues around your injury and the exercises we prescribe. We expect a lot from our patients in terms of working toward their health goals but we supply the tools you need with just the right amount of push to keep you on track on your way to wellbeing and keep you feeling great.

TO OUR PATIENTS

We believe everyone has the right to an accurate diagnosis. We believe our current disease care model is making us sicker, more diseased, more disabled and limiting our human potential. We believe everyone should have great health and a higher quality of life, free from pain or physical limitation. We believe better outcomes in medicine are directly tied to a collaborative approach. We happen to provide world class physical medicine…Want us to help you???

OUR BACKGROUND

Coming from an athletic background and a clinical experience that includes working in professional sports, we understand athletes. You have pain...And we know how to fix it and provide lasting results. We provide truly integrated care that is patient centric based on individual needs. We provide integrative and collaborative care. We start with an accurate diagnosis. We identify what's wrong, tell them how we can help them, let them know how long initial phase of care will take, and are transparent about financials upfront.

Services

Preventative

Preventative care is maintenance that is performed regularly on the body to lesson the likelihood of it failing.

Acute

This type of care focuses on FAST & EFFECTIVE relief from pain & inflammation that results from Acute Sport Setting Injury, Repetitive Motion Injury/Overuse Injury, Trauma.

Recovery

Rest & Recovery is a vital component in both treatment and training because it allows the body time to repair and rebuild itself between treatments and between workouts.

Techniques

Soft Tissue

The muscle, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves can get injured from trauma or repetitive motion and overuse.

Structural

Joints can get compressed, sprained, misaligned and become fixated, resulting in decreased joint movement.

Functional

Once the joints and soft tissues are dealt with through hands on manual treatment, we need to implement some mobility, stability and strengthening exercises to reprogram movement patterns.

    Dr Matt is incredible. His knowledge of the human body and technique is beyond reproach. After my surgery on a broken toe, his rehab had me back running, biking and CrossFitting in half the time. I can now race again PAIN FREE. Thanks Dr. Matt Chriss Smith Trident CrossFitread more

    Friendly and helpful staff, seamless billing processes while working with your insurance and appointments are fairly easy to come by (those early pre-work appointment times are MUCH appreciated). To top it off, Dr Fontaine is awesome. Been going for a year now after experiencing persistent lower back and hip pain that would just not go away. He incorporates so much more work than any other standard chiropractor I've seen for the same problems. He does expect a lot out of you in terms of working towards your physical goals on your own time but he supplies the tools you need and it's just the right amount of push to stay on top of your well being and keep feeling great.read more
