Whitney Smith, PTA
Whitney Smith joins our physical therapy team at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center with an Associate of Applied Science Degree of Physical Therapy Assistant from ECPI’s Medical Careers Institute. She was born and raised in Prince George, Virginia and earned her Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Old Dominion University.
Whitney enjoys treating general orthopedic and post-operative cases with special interest in and working with dancers, concussion management, and gait mechanics and analysis. As a dancer and majorette for over 15 years, she understands the physical demands on the body and how to make sure those demands are met for optimal performance while protecting from injury.
Whitney believes in a collaborative effort with patients to help them achieve their functional goals. She provides education for patients to understand how their body works, along with what they can do to be successful during and long after the rehab process.
Whitney finds inspiration in the Latin proverb “Destitutus Ventis Remos Adhibe -If the wind will not serve, take to the oars.” She loves being outdoors, especially on the water or at the beach with her husband and family.
