Dr. Margaret Pittman completed her undergraduate work at Towson University with a double major in Exercise Science and Spanish. She then moved to Los Angeles to pursue her doctorate in physical therapy at the top-ranked University of Southern California. The desire to be close to her family summoned her back to the East Coast, where she has worked as a licensed PT in D.C., Maryland, and Virginia. In 2013, Dr. Pittman completed an orthopedic residency and became a board-certified orthopedic specialist, which allowed her to further develop her passion for treating musculoskeletal conditions across the lifespan.
Over the last 11+ years, Dr. Pittman has practiced in orthopedic/sport, neurologic, and inpatient PT settings. Her areas of expertise include manual therapy, running assessment, movement analysis, custom orthotics casting, and myofascial trigger point dry needling (Level 3 Dry Needling Certified). Dr. Pittman enjoys treating patients of all demographics, including professional athletes such as MLB players, pro tennis players, triathletes, elite ballerinas, collegiate football players, and track and field athletes. She excels at treating ACL reconstruction, fractures, hip FAI debridement, rotator cuff repair/Bankart/SLAP repair, TBI/concussion, and lumbopelvic/SIJ dysfunction. She is an adjunct assistant professor in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at George Washington University, which allows her to give back to the profession through teaching and mentoring. Dr. Pittman’s favorite pastimes include spending time with her family, enjoying music and photography, and traveling.
