Dr. Elizabeth Brewer PT, DPT
Elizabeth Brewer helps active adults and athletes in Hampton Roads stay healthy, mobile and pain free without pain meds, injections or time off from the workouts and activities they love.
Her interest in physical therapy started as an injured youth athlete. She spent a lot of time in PT in order to return quicker to competitive volleyball.
After becoming a PT, she spent several years working in a pediatric setting helping children with disabilities and their families live life to the fullest. However, she was burdened by the opioid crisis that was tearing apart her community and realized that she could be an avenue for change.
This realization and motivation was further emphasized as Elizabeth transitioned into an adult therapy setting and witnessed countless patients be prescribed medications to address their pain and mobility concerns with no regard to treating the cause of the problems through physical therapy and movement assessment/retraining.
Elizabeth decided she couldn't watch patients slow down their recovery time in large physical therapy "factories" or develop a dependency on pain medications that not only failed to address the true problems, but inevitably caused more.
Out of frustration with the way her family and friends were being treated and a burden for the opioid crisis ripping apart her community she founded Elizabeth Brewer Physical Therapy later renamed Traction Pain Relief & Wellness.
Here at Traction Pain Relief & Wellness, we empower adults to break free from the cycle of pain without dependency on pain medications or substances by utilizing movement as medicine. We LISTEN to what struggles you have, troubleshoot TOGETHER to determine their root cause, TALK about the best plan of action for YOU, and utilize PHYSICAL THERAPY as a tool to get you there faster. We do this by PERSONALIZING treatment for every individual we help. You will see a physical therapist (ready to be hands on) for every minute of every session.
Elizabeth graduated with a B.S. in Health, Physical Education and Exercise Science from Virginia Commonwealth University, and then completed her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Lynchburg College.
