Hall has a special interest in utilizing manual techniques such as joint manipulation in
conjunction with exercise prescription to alleviate pain and improve athletic performance. His
approach to physical therapy involves identifying the source of the pain and/or dysfunction,
facilitating pain relief, and promoting strength and resilience to decrease the likelihood of future
injury. Necks, backs, hips, knees, elbows, shoulders, other muscular conditions, and sports-
related injuries are his specialties.

Freedom. He comes from a military family—all combat veterans. He, his wife, and their three
sons live in Buchanan.
Rahall is a skilled hand therapist with experience across multiple practice settings including
neurological rehabilitation, hand therapy, orthopedics, inpatient rehab, poly trauma, and acute
care rehabilitation. He works with patients with carpal tunnel, trigger finger, Dupuytren’s
contracture, arthritis, tennis elbow, and rotator cuff injuries. He uses cutting-edge therapy
techniques including custom splinting, manual therapy, therapeutic exercises, therapeutic
ultrasound, and neuromuscular electrical stimulation.
Hall and Rahall say that they chose Vinton as the location of their first business because they
saw a need for physical and occupational therapy in Vinton and the surrounding Smith Mountain
Lake, Bedford, and Franklin County areas where there is less saturation of services than in the
rest of the valley.
Their plan is to become “a community-focused clinic. We look forward to building strong
relationships with local residents, healthcare providers, and businesses to create a network of
support for the well-being of our community.”
Their offices at 955 Hardy Road have previously housed RM Communications and, most
recently, a check-cashing business. They are located near the former China Wall, Dunkin’
Donuts, and T-Mobile. There is ample parking nearby and four handicapped spots right by the
The clinic is fully equipped at this point. Few renovations were needed. They are awaiting
permanent signage and will be adding some window mirror tinting and a retractable wall to
ensure patient privacy.
Elite Therapy has hit the ground running and is now welcoming patients. Hours are currently
Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with plans to eventually open at 8 a.m. to
accommodate client schedules.
The business is fully operational and in network with Medicare, Aetna, and other major
insurance carriers, and serves clients of all ages. Patients working with Rahall need a doctor’s
prescription to receive care. Dr. Hall does not require a doctor’s prescription, except in the case
of Medicare patients.
