Ashleigh Demel


Physical Therapist, Clinic Director

Ashleigh joined the Pivot Physical Therapy team in September 2018, first at our 18th Street location in NW, D.C. before becoming Clinic Director at our Crystal City clinic. In December 2021, she transferred to the Director of our Warrenton, VA clinic where she is currently treating a wide spectrum of patients with various rehab goals. She earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Rutgers University with honors, after attending Virginia Tech where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Human Nutrition, Food and Exercise Science.

Ashleigh has treated a wide variety of orthopedic and neuromuscular conditions, with experience in treating balance conditions, cervicogenic headaches, TMJ, and running injuries. She became certified in dry needling in March 2019, which she uses as a source of pain management to assist patients in achieving a more pain-free lifestyle. Ashleigh is enthusiastic and driven to provide the best level of personalized care and focus to each patient’s individual needs and goals.

When Ashleigh is not treating in the clinic, she enjoys outdoor activities like hiking, going to the beach, running, as well as going to country concerts with friends.
