Then through specific functional treatment and a targeted treatment program, we will work to fix the problem as well as improving your flexibility, joint mobility and core body stability.
We utilize the latest in technology to help determine where and why you are having your pain. We incorporate an active rehabilitation program from the start of your care, making the exercises both functional for everyday activity and easy to perform at home.
Our goal with every patient is achieve a faster and longer lasting recovery. This 360° approach gives our patients the absolute best outcome in the shortest period of time.
A unique approach to each case
Your experience with pain is different than anyone else’s, so your treatment must be unique as well. Not all patients will require a comprehensive pain program. Depending on the extent and nature of the pain problem, some patients may do very well with limited specific treatments; others may require a more comprehensive treatment approach. Many experience significant relief, or are pain free after the first few visits.
Dr. Ward of Cross Functional Rehab has been instrumental in helping me get my training back on track. A wrist/hand injury has kept me from holding an empty barbell for three months, and a nagging hip flexor issue has kept me from squatting for a few weeks. After four visits with Dr. Ward, I couldn’t be happier about the progress I’ve seen in my injuries. I’m back to squatting a couple times a week and am happily working my way back up to heavy barbell weights with little or no pain. I can’t say enough about the quick and positive results Dr. Ward has provided thus far, and I’m very much looking forward to even more positive results by the end of our treatment plan and beyond.Linsey Kokal - Manager / Coach Falls Church CrossFit
As a patient, I am extremely happy with the services that Dr. Ward provides. He has helped me through various injuries sustained from work and intense training. As a Personal Trainer and Coach, I have sent my clients to his facility, NOVA Pain and Rehab, for assessments and rehab. He continues to assist them in achieving a level of mobility and function on par with pre-injury levels and beyond. I highly recommend his services and will continue to refer my clients his way!Aric Lee - Firefighter/Paramedic - Prince George's County Fire Department American Council on Exercise (ACE) Certified Personal Trainer Owner, Evolve To Fit, LLC
Dr. Erik Ward is a true professional in his field. Our gym has a variety of athletes doing kickboxing, grappling, boxing, krav maga, and crossfit who really need guidance and awareness in mobility movements/exercises to help alleviate pain and prevent injury. His knowledge and professionalism is so highly valued at Novamma and wish he could set up shop inside our gym! I highly recommend Dr. Ward to athletes and individuals of all backgrounds.Chau Bui - Owner / CEO NOVA MMA & CrossFit
Dr. Ward from Nova Pain and Rehab provided our athletes with a tremendous mobility seminar series. These seminars were hands on and taught new mobility movements, which is helping our athletes improve their mobility and flexibility, resulting in better performance in the box and healthier athletes. The fact that Dr. Ward and Moses are both CF athletes really helped our members connect with them throughout the seminars. These seminars have helped motivate our athletes to really focus on their mobility exercises before and after WOD's!Tucker Jones - Owner Ballston CrossFit Ballston CrossFit
I walked into Dr Ward's office with crippling knee pain. I had patella tendinitis, I couldn't sleep let alone run, squat, or jump. Not good for a guy who would be competing for the title of Worlds fittest man (Masters category) in 8-weeks. I was frustrated, Dr Ward and his team had a plan though! In two short weeks he had me feeling so much better that I was able to compete in the CrossFit Games Mid-Atlantic Regionals! No small task as I needed to perform 1-legged squats, maximum overhead squats and squat cleans at 225#! Needless to say I'm thrilled with the care I received and the results it produced. Every athlete that pushes the limits needs a good rehab and pain management person in their corner, I have mine with Dr Ward!Jerry Hill - 2x CrossFit Games Athlete Owner - Old Town CrossFit
Dr. Ward and his staff at Cross Functional Rehabilitation are true professionals at helping athletes of all levels unlocking their true potential. As a an active duty U.S. Marine of 16 years, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu blue belt and CrossFit Level 1 Coach, strength and conditioning is paramount in achieving success in my day to day life. When a neck/shoulder injury started to effect my quality of life, I knew I needed to find someone to get me back to 100% immediately. Dr. Ward and his goal oriented, systematic approach to identify the root cause of my injury and provide instant results make him and his staff a rare breed amongst everyone else.Noel Min - Certified CrossFit Coach Trident CrossFit
