Meet Dr. Farid Mohammadi
Dr. Farid Mohammadi is a native of Northern Virginia. He graduated from VCU with a Bachelor of Science with a minor in Chemistry. Immediately following, Dr. Farid went to Palmer College of Chiropractic in Florida where he received his Doctorate of Chiropractic. His passion to help people and joy of staying active has led him to become a sports chiropractor.
Dr. Farid is certified in Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) and Graston technique. He took his Active Release Technique (ART) certification courses in 2012 and 2013. Dr. Farid is also certified in Dry Needling technique. His certifications grant Dr. Farid the opportunity to work with athletes of all sports levels. He works directly with Crossfit gyms, personal trainers, and other fitness centers. His philosophy is based on quality rather than quantity of care; as he says "It's not what you do, it's how you do it."
Dr. Farid's experience ranges from high-volume, efficient treatments to low-volume, individualized sessions. His preference is to practice in a smaller clinic setting to provide highly personalized services. Dr. Farid's clients often express appreciation for his individualized treatment plans, and have even said, "It's like we have a chiropractor, physical therapist, and personal trainer at the same time."
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I strongly recommend Dr. Farid especially for atheletes. I am a tennis player who plays 4-5 times a week and back injuries are a common problem with this sport. I had back/muscle problems. He was able to pinpoint exactly where the pain was. He really works differently than other chiropractors and uses a different technique with more of a sport approach which is more effective. He understands how to alleviate the pain so you can resume your normal sport routine and he provides you with some good exercises that focus on the area of the pain. I am extremely happy with the quick result. As a person he is really attentive to what you say. He is my triple A Doc!!!
