VIRT Physical Therapy was founded by Mariana Tondo who as a performer competitive gymnast, had her fair share of injuries. It was this experience that sparked a curiosity into Physical Therapy as a lifelong focus. Mariana spent many years working in private practice after graduating as a Physical Therapist in 2012 from UDESC, the University of the State of Santa Catarina, a highly recognized physical therapy program in her native country Brazil.
During this time she diagnosed and treated a variety of musculoskeletal disorders until she moved to the United States in 2017. After receiving licensure, she began working in high volume clinics and very soon became frustrated by the inability to provide quality care. Disappointed and seeking a better way, she began to pursue the idea of opening a private clinic to provide an exceptional quality of care to her patients. A problem occurred, a global pandemic forced her to pause, think, and reflect. Why not pursue this for everyone regardless of their schedule or location?
This answer was the birth of VIRT Physical Therapy. A company providing the solution to quality time spent with patients, listening, customized one on one treatment, and being customer-focused.
