Services We Provide

For nearly twenty years, Lucas Therapies has grown into one of the largest independent outpatient physical therapy practices in Virginia.

Lucas Therapies offers experienced treatment for ALL SPORTS injuries and we have a Certified golf specialist on staff.

At Lucas Therapies, we have rehabilitated athletes of every age and tier—from fulltime pros to children injured on the elementary school playing field, from college stars to weekend warriors! Many of our therapists are themselves athletes and coaches with an extensive knowledge base in specific sports, including football, basketball, baseball, softball, soccer, lacrosse, swimming, golf, track, wrestling and volleyball. Additionally, our professionals provide sideline assistance at numerous athletic events and frequently lecture to groups on rehabilitative and injury prevention topics. Lucas Therapies provides the most comprehensive sports injury rehabilitation and prevention service in Southwest Virginia. After all, we're not only sports therapists, but sports fans as well—and we're committed to getting you back in the game.

We offer cumulative Trauma Prevention Programs and Arthritis Management Plans.

Ruth Galle, OT, CHT, was the first Certified Hand Therapist in Southwest Virginia. Since she joined Lucas Therapies over a decade ago, Ruth has helped literally thousands of patients recover from traumatizing hand conditions. Because effective rehabilitation is critical to the success of any hand surgery, many hand surgeons in the western part of Virginia have relied on Ruth to work with patients to achieve outstanding rehabilitative results. With over thirty years of experience, Ruth is uniquely qualified to assess and treat even the most difficult cases.

Lucas Therapies is the premier provider of Worker Compensation rehabilitation services in Western Virginia.

The injured worker can be one of the most difficult cases to manage. In addition to treating the injury itself, the therapist must understand the legal requirements of Worker Compensation law, the employee's job requirements and status, the employer / employee relationship, duty limitations and return to work policies, and physician and case manager recommendations. Our staff is distinctly qualified to navigate the difficult conditions surrounding a workplace injury — providing maximum benefit for both the injured worker and employer. In fact, Lucas Therapies' Orange Avenue facility is entirely dedicated to the rehabilitation of the injured worker. Additionally, we provide worksite evaluation and treatment services within the facilities of many area employers to improve workplace safety and reduced costs.

Tendonitis? Bursitis? Arthritis? Tennis elbow? Bone fracture? Neck or back strain? Joint replacement? Lucas Therapies has you covered. Those suffering from pain and reduced mobility due to musculoskeletal issues will find relief and restoration with our orthopedic physical therapy team.

Wellness/Injury Prevention

We all want to be as active as possible in life. Unfortunately, life itself can sometimes thwart those plans. Lucas Therapies works with individuals and athletes to develop strategies for enhancing wellness and avoiding injuries. In addition, our staff regularly speaks to groups about injury rehabilitation and prevention.
