Dr. Margaret Pittman


Momentous Sports Medicine, Director of Clinical Excellence


Dr. Margaret Pittman completed her undergraduate work at Towson University with a double major in Exercise Science and Spanish. She then moved to Los Angeles to pursue her Doctorate degree in physical therapy at the top-ranked University of Southern California. The desire to be close to her family summoned her back to the East Coast where she has worked as a licensed PT in D.C., Maryland, and Virginia since 2010.

In 2013, Dr. Pittman completed an Orthopedic Residency and became a Board Certified Orthopedic Specialist which allowed her to further develop her passion for treating musculoskeletal conditions across the lifespan. Over the last 13+ years, Dr. Pittman has practiced in orthopedic/sport, neurologic, and inpatient PT settings, and her areas of expertise include manual therapy, running assessment, movement analysis, custom orthotic casting, and myofascial trigger point dry needling (Certified Myofascial Trigger Point Therapist/CMTPT).

Dr. Pittman enjoys treating patients of all demographics including professional athletes such as World and National Champion track and field athletes, MLB players, pro tennis players, boxers, triathletes, elite ballerinas, and collegiate basketball and football players. She excels at treating ACL reconstruction, fractures, hip FAI debridement, rotator cuff repair/Bankart/SLAP repair, TBI/concussion, and lumbopelvic/SIJ dysfunction.

She is an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program at George Washington University and guest lectures at other PT programs around the U.S. which allows her to give back to the profession through teaching and mentoring. As a lifelong learner, Dr. Pittman is currently pursuing her MBA with a concentration in innovation and entrepreneurship at the GW School of Business. Her passion for learning and teaching has earned her the distinction of Director of Clinical Excellence at Momentous Sports Medicine. In this role, Dr. Pittman is responsible for developing clinical education tools and protocols for the team to continue to provide cutting-edge, quality and efficient patient treatment.

Extending her work outside of the classroom and clinic, Dr. Pittman has been featured on the public television documentary series Viewpoint discussing the importance of physical therapy assessment and intervention throughout the lifespan. In an effort to continually merge clinical work with community outreach, Dr. Pittman serves on three Boards: The USC Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy Black Alumni Association Board of Directors, Minority Women in Sports Medicine Advisory Board, and the VIDA Medical Advisory Board.

Dr. Pittman’s favorite pastimes include spending time with her family, enjoying music and photography, and traveling.
