Physical Therapy

Dr. Garrett Sanders PT, DPT

Dr. Garrett Sanders’ personal experiences are what drive his passion and enthusiasm to provide excellent rehabilitative care to patients of all ages. He believes that physical therapy is a dynamic relationship between provider and patient that utilizes multiple disciplinary aspects to achieve optimal outcomes. Dr. Garrett Sanders received his Bachelor of Science in Biology from Stevenson (MD) University and Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Shenandoah University.  While in practice at Capitol Rehab of Winchester, Garrett is also an adjunct lab professor in the physical therapy program at Shenandoah.


His path to becoming a physical therapist has taken him from patient to practitioner. A record-setting pitcher at the prep and college levels, potentially career-ending elbow injuries twice slowed stellar seasons. However, he attributes proper diagnosis, surgery and rehabilitation as the key to averting career ending status. It was also then that he knew becoming a physical therapist was what he was meant to do. Dr. Sanders enjoys exercising, playing golf, and spending time with his two children and wife.

Dr. Sanders is trained in the Occupro Functional Capacity Evaluation system, is certified in Graston Technique, the Functional Movement Screen, Integrative Dry Needling and Functional Dry Needling.
