"I came in not being able to run anymore. It has taken a little longer than expected (due to other injuries), but finally, in the last two weeks, I have been able to run for 20 minutes each time. I feel like I will be able to do this more often and for longer once I get my endurance to where it used to be. Thank you so much!" -Stephanie S.

Faith Ringgold is one of the greatest African American artists in history. Her techniques range from traditional painting to performance and mask-making. She later moved on to sewing and mixing various types of media. She is a deeply political artist, frequently addressing systemic racism and the history of slavery in her works.

“I had something I was trying to say and sometimes the message is an easy transmission and sometimes it’s a difficult one but I love the power of saying it so I’m gonna do it whether it’s hard or easy.”

"Gordon Parks, one of the greatest photographers of the twentieth century, was a humanitarian with a deep commitment to social justice. He left behind an exceptional body of work that documents American life and culture from the early 1940s into the 2000s, with a focus on race relations, poverty, civil rights, and urban life. Parks was also a distinguished composer, author, and filmmaker who interacted with many of the leading people of his era—from politicians and artists to athletes and celebrities."

How do physical therapists keep their patients motivated?
They encourage them to “stretch” their limits!

Edmonia "Wildfire" Lewis was a sculptor and the first African American and Native American artist to rise to national and international prominence. She started her career as a sculptor in Boston but she spent most of her career in Rome, Italy. Her Neoclassical sculpture often touched on themes related to her African American and Native American heritage. She was so respected that she was invited to produce a piece for the 1876 Centennial Exposition and President Ulysses S. Grant commissioned a portrait bust from her. Though her popularity dwindled as interest in Neoclassical art waned, her legacy as a trailblazer never faded.

Our Story

Appalachian Physical Therapy was first opened in Pennington Gap, Virginia in 1986 by Bill Whiteford and Colleen Murphy. It began as a small outpatient practice, with contracts serving nursing home residents and homebound patients. One year later, Bill and Colleen felt compelled to move to the Shenandoah Valley. In November 1987, Appalachian Physical Therapy relocated to the Harrison Plaza in downtown Harrisonburg, Virginia. Bill and Colleen were married in 1988. Their practice continued to grow, and in 1993 Appalachian Physical Therapy relocated to a larger facility on Deyerle Avenue in Harrisonburg, behind the Valley Mall, complete with a pool and fitness center. It began as a small outpatient practice, with contracts serving nursing home residents and home-bound patients.

Smaller satellite offices were later opened in Broadway, on South Main Street in Harrisonburg, and in Bridgewater. Gradual expansion led to clinics in Richmond, Virginia and Pinehurst, North Carolina. Bill and Colleen found the smaller offices to be more convenient and easier to staff, and the large office building behind the mall was sold in July 2004.

Appalachian Physical Therapy has been and continues to be a Christian based practice owned by physical therapists. Our focus is on excellence in treatment. We provide hands-on care in a comprehensive approach that considers the needs of the person as a whole.
