Heather Walling Brumfield got her Bachelors of Science degree from
James Madison University with a major in Kinesiology and a
concentration in exercise science and exercise leadership in 2001.  She
received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Medical College of Virginia
in 2005, became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist Certification in 2006 and received her Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist Certification in 2009.  Heather is certified in ART (Active Release Techniques) for the Spine since 2013, the upper extremity since 2014, and plans to get her final ART certification for the lower extremity in 2015. She is passionate about helping others with their recovery from injuries.  She has many advanced manual skills and is specifically known for her specialty in treatment of the spine including, the cervical, thoracic, lumbar, and sacroiliac regions.

Heather has been practicing as a Physical Therapist in the Lynchburg area for 10 years.  She was voted by the southwest Virginia community first place for the best bedside manner award in Our Health Magazine in 2011, again in 2012, and was an honorable mention in 2013.

Having a good bedside manner as a physical therapist is very important to a patient’s healing process.  Patients should feel comfortable, confident, and understand that their physical therapist cares about how they feel and the outcome of their physical therapy program. This promotes a healthy patient/therapist relationship.  Patients should leave the office after each visit confident they are in the right place to get the care they need.

Heather looks forward to continuing to work with and meet the needs of the people in the Lynchburg community and surrounding areas.
