Carlottesville Physical Therapist - Laurel Sheffield, DPT

Laurel Sheffield, DPT

Prior to graduating from VCU with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT), Laurel completed her undergraduate education at Davidson College in North Carolina. While there, she was a four-year member of the Division I cross country and track teams. Laurel’s interest in physical therapy was first piqued by her own injury experiences as a runner, and now she loves treating athletes and non-athletes alike.

Laurel is working towards her goal of becoming an Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS) under the mentorship of Move Better Physical Therapy. She is passionate about staying up-to-date with the newest research and helping her patient’s find joy in movement again. Outside of the clinic, Laurel can be found running the roads (of course), as well as biking, lifting weights, and generally enjoying the great outdoors.
