A little about Dr. Heletsi…

Andrew Heletsi attended the University of Pittsburgh, where he attained a Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2006. After graduating, Andre’s professional career as a Physical Therapist commenced at Sibley Memorial Hospital, Washington D.C., where he spent six years. During his tenure at Sibley he focused on treatment of patients with limited mobility in the medical surgical and sub-acute rehab settings.

Thereafter, Andre sought further professional advancement and joined the outpatient team of Body Dynamics, where he was mentored by Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist and experts in the treatment of chronic general orthopedic ailments and dance/performing arts injuries. One of the most important lessons learned at Body Dynamics was the specifics on how to build a clinical hypothesis to guide treatment.

In 2011 Andre was afforded the great opportunity to work with skilled Physical Therapists at Bodies in Motion Physical Therapy. There he was further mentored on the mechanics of the body and attained the skill of Trigger Point Dry Needling. Andre’s professional knowledge was further enhanced when he successfully completed the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties (ABPTS) Orthopedic Clinical Specialist Exam. In 2012 Andre developed an injury prevention program and a strength and conditioning class for the Classical Ballet Theatre in Herndon; and also serves as their Physical Therapist. Andre specializes in ailments of the spine, lower extremities, and upper extremities. He derives enjoyment and satisfaction when treating persons who have undergone knee and hip joint replacements.
