Marcus Rivera received a bachelor's degree in biology from Christopher Newport University before earning his Doctor of Physical Therapy from Old Dominion University. He is board-certified as a Sports Clinical Specialist by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties.
A highly trained Physical Therapist with specialty expertise in sports rehabilitation and injury prevention, Marcus's practice emphasizes function above all else. He believes that every movement has a purpose-either for sport, leisure or work. Restoring the body to that optimal function is his goal, achieved by a personalized plan for exercise, manual therapy or combination of methods.
After moving frequently as a child whose father served in the U.S. Marine Corps, Marcus and his family eventually arrived in Williamsburg. He graduated from Lafayette High School and remained in Hampton Roads for his undergraduate and post-baccalaureate education. Marcus and his wife Kristina have two young children, Alaina and Landon. He enjoys spending time outdoors with his family as well as volunteering with a local high school athletic team.
