Justin owner of South River Rehabilitation and Performance


Justin Dimitt

Back in 2014 Justin had a vision. A vision of a physical therapy clinic that didn't just run people through the motions, and then send them on their way without a plan to keep them healthy. Instead, his vision was of a clinic that took pride in treating its patients and then set them up for success with a personalized workout program to build upon the patient's plan of care.

On August 14, 2018 that vision came to life when South River Rehabilitation and Performance opened its doors for the first time! South River is the first and only start in physical therapy and progress to functional training or sports performance training center in the Shenandoah Valley. This is a place where the patient or client sets the standards and tone for their treatment or their training program. We also strive to offer a high-quality product at an affordable cash rate if you do not have insurance or a sky high deductible. Physical therapy, sports performance training (baseball, basketball, football, soccer, track, etc.), general gym memberships, and baseball instruction provided by local experts are all under one roof. Literally a one-stop shop for your physical and sporting demands to serve the greater Shenandoah Valley. We strive to be your family physical therapist and coach and we strive to be your best first choice for physical therapy and athletic aspirations!
