Lara Khattar received her Bachelors in Psychology with Honors at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia. She then decided to apply her passion for helping those with neurological conditions by pursuing her Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree at Virginia Commonwealth University. During her studies, she had the opportunity to work as a neuroanatomy teaching assistant. She worked with a variety of neurological, orthopedic, and pediatric populations during her clinical rotations. Her special interest in neurological conditions led her to advance her career by pursuing a Vestibular Rehabilitation Certification through the American Institute of Balance. She worked at Inova Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, Virginia, before deciding to take a position where she could help patients experiencing dizziness and balance impairments. Lara is very excited to have the opportunity to work with Fyzical – Shady Grove at the Siegel, Bosworth, and Sorensen ENT center, where she can help each patient reach their goals and improve their quality of life.
We are lucky to have Lara as one of our physical therapists treating patients experiencing jaw pain, dizziness, imbalance, Parkinson’s Disease and various other neurological conditions!
