We understand how difficult it is to not feel your best, to be unable to participate in activities you
enjoy because of an injury, or to struggle to reach your health and fitness goals.
We also know it can be frustrating to not know what to do or where to go to find a lasting solution. We can help you resolve physical issues, return to activities you love, and reach your health and wellness goals.
Our team of talented professionals have successfully helped thousands of people over the years
recover from injuries and establish healthy lifestyles. We are the premier Spine Health, Orthopedic,
and general Physical Therapy and Wellness Center in the Richmond area.
We have consistently been nationally ranked in the top 2% in outcome rankings for decreased pain, improved function, and satisfaction scores. Additionally, we have received numerous honors and recognitions, including being voted many times Best Physical Therapy Practice in Central Virginia. We achieve success through our unique manual therapy approach, our holistic perspective, and proven methods developed from the interconnected, multi-faceted components of health, wellness and fitness science.
Our comprehensive programs are designed to help people build the skills needed to move from injured or unsatisfied with their health, to being healthier, have increased fitness, and to be more physically capable and athletic with the passing of time. Give us the opportunity to listen, identify what is needed, and then guide and support you in reaching your goals.
Thrive was founded in 2005 by the husband-wife team of Clarke Tanner and Tara Cattaneo. It grew out
of an enthusiasm for helping people and a desire to assist others in reaching their potential.
Our mission was to create a unique company that would promote health and wellness and assist our
patients, clients, and team members to thrive in all endeavors.
Our practice has evolved over time to achieve its current high standard of care. Years of adapting
to patient needs, continual study and overcoming individual personal challenges have all contributed
to advancing our knowledge base at Thrive PT.
We have an appreciation for, and understanding of, the multiple factors that create a problem and utilize the mind-body connection to resolve it. In addition, we strive to develop better ways to help people resolve current issues but more importantly, to anticipate potential road blocks to life’s enjoyment. We strive to help our patients improve.
In addition, we created comprehensive wellness programs to help patients reach their goals by guiding and empowering them to improve health and success in life.

Finding Thrive truly was an answered prayer from God for me! I am doing wonderful now with my back and my knees are getting there too. I can’t thank you enough. I have only worked with Clarke during therapy at Thrive, but I really welcome and enjoy how he takes the time to really listen to your issues, concerns and questions and then he thoroughly addresses those needs. He does an excellent job of explaining the root cause of your issues to you. Not stuffy or uncomfortable at all. He goes out of his way to make you feel welcome and at ease. Very welcoming!
I just wanted to say that I cannot thank you all enough for how much you have helped me. I experience my acute pain MUCH less often and when I do it is much less terrifying as I can easily breath through it. You folks completely changed my life from day one. When I started coming I had little hope because PT has offered me NO improvement with my back issues in the past but I now have renewed faith in what PT can do. I feel like you have given me something none of the many, many doctors I have seen have come close to…results. My problems are still there in some respects and some will never change (like my lung damage due to my sarcoidosis) but I never could have dreamt of results that changed my life so positively so quickly. I now feel like I can get on with living my life and most importantly I NO LONGER FEAR BEING LEFT ALONE WITH MY 21 MONTH OLD DAUGHTER and that is the best thing that ever could have happened.
I know all too well, that in today’s medical climate, I have to be my own captain, taking full
responsibility for my own health. I will call the practitioners at Thrive top-notch navigators;
professionals who listen deeply, draw upon their expertise, and design a plan of action,
specific to my needs, for us all to work on together.
And all the while, an atmosphere of care and respect fills the entire office. This has been my consistent experience with this practice for the last four years. It is my privilege to recommend them, one and all.
We were born to Move!
And Movement is Critical to Health & Wellbeing!
Movement has a direct effect on our mood, our motivation, our energy levels, and our ability to socialize and participate in the things we love.
So, why do so many of us struggle with sticking to an exercise program?
