Dr. Rhianna Redden is a Bay Area, California native who became interested in physical therapy because of her passion for sports. As a former collegiate athlete, she was exposed to the world of physical therapy and sports medicine. In 2013, she graduated from New York University (NYU) with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy, as well as, the designation of Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and Pilates Mat certification.
Dr. Redden began her career in a fast-paced orthopedic clinic in New York City. She transitioned into being the physical therapist for the Broadway production “Beautiful: The Carole King Story”. After her stent on Broadway, she took her talents to North Carolina where she became the Area Lead Physical Therapist for a prominent physical therapy company. Missing the faster pace of larger metropolitan areas, Dr. Redden moved to the DMV, where she became the clinical director for clinics in Maryland and DC. Throughout her career, she has been treated high school, collegiate, and professional athletes on and off the field. Dr. Redden is one of the founders of the Coalition of Black Physical Therapists and a founding member of the National Association for Black Physical Therapists.
Dr. Redden’s approach to physical therapy is viewing the entire patient, not just looking at the diagnosis. Using her sports and orthopedic background, her individualized treatments are evidence-based with the incorporation of manual techniques and tools in her clinical arsenal. She utilizes Maitland, McKenzie, Graston, pilates-mat, SFMA, Schroth, dry-needling, blood flow restriction, and Kinesotaping techniques to help patients achieve their goals. She has earned the designations of Certified Sports and Orthopedic Manual Therapist, Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists, Certified Dry Needling, and Certified Clinical Instructor by the American Physical Therapy Association.
When Dr. Redden is not treating, she enjoys traveling, playing sports, and trying new cuisines.
