About Us

Building Balanced Bodies – B3

As your personal physical therapy doctors and movement specialists, we are your partners in sport and health. At B3, we understand your body is one of a kind and moves differently from life stressors, repetitive jobs, hobbies, accidents, and past experiences.

Our role, using science of human movement, is to identify the source of your specific problem and develop a plan that corrects the cause to get you moving better quickly. We prioritize results and will commit to providing you with a rehabilitation experience that is unmatched.

We specialize in a disciplined approach that resolves the underlying movement deficiencies that cause most injuries. We get to the root of the problem by guiding you through the gradual changes in movement necessary to reclaim your more youthful performance.

Our 3 Step Process

B1 – Building Confidence

Your initial assessment is comprehensive and uses a full body movement screen to identify the underlying cause(s) of your pain or movement restrictions. Just imagine three weeks from now you are out of pain from focusing on a few simple things that provide the majority of the results. Once your body feels safe and pain has been addressed, the next step is consistency.

Cara Giusti, DPT

Doctor of Physical Therapy

Cara Giusti is a 21 year veteran physical therapist and owner of B3 Physical Therapy. With a Doctorate in physical therapy, she has worked in a variety of settings including three hospitals, two private practices and a high school. The number of patients she has seen in a day has ranged from 4 per hour to 1 per hour. (Once she saw 22 patients in a day!). Therefore, she gets how the number of patients scheduled directly affects patient results. That’s why she decided to start her own private practice one patient at a time.

Through her training at Johns Hopkins Hospital and under the direct supervision of a Certified Geriatric specialist at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, DC, she was able to learn from the very best. She also studied the Functional Movement System and Titleist Performance methods directly under co-founder, Greg Rose, and took Rocktape courses, one with Dr. Courtney Conley at Gait Happens and Dr. Perry Nickelston’s, Primal Movement Chains and Lymphatic Mojo courses.

Now, she offers live and virtual private physical therapy, online classes, and workshops for those who are willing to keep it moving, fight against aging, eliminate symptoms and achieve optimal health.
