Advanced Center for Physical Therapy is owned and directed by physical therapists who live and work in their practice communities.

Advanced Physical Therapy in Virginia Jim and Melissa SchmidtJim & Melissa Schmidt started ACPT in 2005 to touch lives through physical therapy.  Their background provides a solid foundation in which to establish a culture of empathy and expertise to help others achieve results.  They establish a personal approach with each patient, listening and caring, through a belief that injuries affect one’s life in areas other than movement and comfort. 

Jim has undergone five back surgeries since 1996 and understands first hand feelings of struggle and uncertainty when it came to getting back to full function.  His testimony of this journey is an encouragement to many patients that wonder “how will I ever recover from my pain and disability?”   Melissa has walked with Jim every step of this journey and understands the impact, cost and personal dynamic back pain, surgery and recovery can have on a family.  Their story intersects in the battle others experience in areas other than back pain.  Many have benefited from hearing and seeing them fight together to help others with faith, hope and courage.   

Our personal and company history, along with the individual histories of our staff members, has enabled us to develop many areas of exceptional specialty.  We understand that we all have unique bodies, unique health histories and unique needs – and it is our goal to restore every patient we treat to optimal function and to glorify God in everything we do. 

The Mission at Advanced Center for Physical Therapy: 

“We exist to restore hope and improve the quality of life of the communities we serve by providing the most effective and efficient physical therapy services in a comprehensive and caring way”
