HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY
Breathing 100% oxygen under increased pressure, called HBOT, allows extra oxygen to be taken up by the bloodstream and dissolved at a far greater rate. This extra oxygen can help where healing is slowed down by infection or where blood supply is limited by damage to the tissues.

Dr. NajafBagy (Dr. H) presented to over 200 team physicians last week at the 2017 Advanced Team Physician Course held in Washington, DC. The conference was sponsored by the American College of Sports Medicine acsm.org, the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine http://www.amssm.org, and the American Orthopedic Society of Sports Medicine http://www.sportsmed.org/. Dr. Mark Hutchinson, the Advanced Team Physicians Course Director and Orthopedic Surgeon in Chicago, IL gave this wonderful testimonial after the presentation.
“Wow, just Wow. Dr. NajafBagy (endearingly known to his patients as Dr. H) brought his exceptional hands-on treatment skills to help educate some of the leading physicians in the country at the ACSM/AOSSM/AMSSM Advanced Team Physician Course held recently in Washington DC. The fact that he brought his good friend, three time Cy Young winner Max Scherzer, along as a model created a session in which every attendee was glued to every word and technique that Dr. H demonstrated. Dr. NajafBagy’s education of these team physicians will serve to impact the care of athletes across the country. Kudos to Dr. H (and Max) for a great program. His patients are truly blessed to have access to a great clinician.”

WEEKEND WINDUP August 11, 2017
We are excited to announce the arrival of Jameson Gregory to the world. Jameson was born this past Wednesday and is 7lb 14 oz and 21 inches long. The proud parents are Krista Gregory, our Falls Church Office Manager, and John Gregory. Mom and baby are doing wonderful. We are very excited for Krista and John as they begin their journey as parents. Krista plans to return to work early winter.
Krista was able to work up until the day she gave birth which is amazing. She attributes this to the fact that she listened to her body and received therapy as needed for back pain, inflammation/swelling and difficulty sleeping. United Wellness & Sports Rehab offers a wide range of services for mothers and babies. Krista was able to get chiropractic care and physical therapy throughout her pregnancy. Dr Jennifer Baird is trained extensively in caring for women throughout their pregnancies. Dr Baird is a new mother herself, which always helps when a patient is explaining their pains, discomforts, etc. We also offer prenatal massage and acupuncture.
Additionally, our littlest patients get amazing results from chiropractic, acupuncture and infant massage. Our doctors and clinicians are available to talk with you regarding how these treatments can help your little one with fussiness, colic, and many more common issues facing parents with young children.
Again, congrats to one of our team members, Krista Gregory, on the birth of her precious baby boy!

The United Wellness & Sports Rehab TRAVELING DUDE took its maiden voyage 15 hours away to Greece. My personal adventure began in June as I took my two teenage children on a 2 week vacation in Greece. What an amazing people and country. We had private traditional Greek dance lessons, rode donkeys down and up the Santorini caldera, stayed in an authentic farming village and watched as the native people prepared sun dried tomatoes on their roofs, hauled goods to their homes with their donkeys and listened to the magical harmonies of Greek music long into the night. A trip of a lifetime to share with my children before they begin their own journey into adulthood.
The idea for the TRAVELING DUDE was born after I realized that this team does some serious traveling. In the past 2 years our staff and doctors have traveled to France, Spain, Vietnam, Africa, and Greece. What a great way to share our personal and work adventures than to share a picture with our friends.
We look forward to sharing its location with our friends as TRAVELING DUDE explores the world with our staff, doctors and friends of United Wellness.
Where will TRAVELING DUDE go next… keep watching!
United Wellness & Sports Rehab is excited to announce the addition of a massage therapist to our offices.
‘G’ (short for Gyöngyvér) Montes joined us in June 2017.
One of her most recent patients shared, “Had my first appointment with ‘G’! Wow, I think I’ve been going to the wrong massage therapist all these years! I will definitely be returning, as I’m sure you already know… she is quite an asset to your already wonderful practice! Many thanks for finding and for also hiring ‘G’!”
G grew up in Budapest, Hungary where she was a semiprofessional volleyball player and earned her Registered Nurse degree.
After arriving to the US, she graduated on top of her class at AKS Massage Therapy School in Herndon, VA and currently holds the highest level of certification (NCBTMB) in massage therapy and bodywork.
G currently works with pro athletes and a wide range of clientele. No matter what the issue; surgery, a sprain, trigger points or tightness, she’ll help you return to a normal, ideal condition where you can thrive better and stronger.
She accomplished numerous high intensity trainings, such as Erik Dalton’s Myoskeletal Alignment, learned Myofascial Release by Howard Rontal and many other modalities, such as deep tissue therapy, sports massage, trigger point therapy, prenatal massage, post operative massage, scar tissue therapy, Swedish massage and many more.
G volunteered at Walter Reed Medical center providing massage therapy to military people with severe PTSD.
Her favorite quote is from the revolutionary Ida Rolf (who was a biochemist and the creator of Structural Integration)
“When the body gets working appropriately, the force of gravity can flow, then spontaneously, the body heals itself.”
G lives in Franklin Farm, loves spending time with her children, friends and 3 dogs, hiking, traveling, cooking, trying new cuisine, going to concerts, listening to music and spending as much time outdoors as she possibly can.
