At Personalized Physical Therapy, our team of highly skilled physical therapists offer patients customized and effective care. We believe in understanding and treating the root of each patient’s injury through a personalized approach. That is why each visit is one full hour and one-on-one with your therapist, without the use of aides or modalities. This results in a faster and more complete recovery. Our office is also extremely kid friendly! One of our treatment rooms even has an attached playroom. Your little ones are always welcome here!
DR. KELSEY VAGNONI, DPT

Since that time, she has taken over 400 hours of additional hands-on training to improve her manual therapy skills. She started Personalized Physical Therapy in 2016 because she wanted to offer a higher quality of care and spend more time with her patients. She is very passionate about treating the unique issues of pregnant and postpartum patients, and wanted a business that provided accessible care to busy mothers. Kelsey utilizes a "hands-on" approach to improve joint and muscle function, and restore mobility, stability, and alignment. She treats the underlying causes of your injury versus the simply the symptoms, and she gives you the tools you need to stay healthy!

DR. CHRISTINA ALI, DPT
Christina is a graduate of the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Though a native Michigander, she’s been in Maryland for over ten years. Christina has worked primarily as a pelvic therapist since graduation in 2018, treating everything from chronic prostatitis and pelvic pain to interstitial cystitis and urinary urgency to postpartum and postmenopausal urinary incontinence and prolapse. Treating the pelvic floor is often foundational for many men and women experiencing insidious lower abdominal, back, and hip pain. Don’t forget the importance of gaining neuromuscular control of the pelvic floor as a pregnant mother to set yourself up for success during delivery and postpartum! If Christina’s not talking about the pelvic floor, she’s reading the same book over and over to one of her two children.
