History Whole Health Physical Therapy in Lynchburg
Whole Health Physical Therapy in Lynchburg, VA is a unique clinic offering holistic health care designed to treat the entire person, not just the part or parts that might be injured or broken.
Owner and operator Beth Rini Scott, Doctor of Physical Therapy, certified wellness coach and nutrition therapist, is returning to running her own practice after a 15 year stint of working in larger orthopedic practices.
“I’m making the shift back to private practice to have more of something we all need: time,” she says.
Delivering physical therapy in Lynchburg, VA, she also serves patients from the communities of Bedford, Forest, Rustburg, Amherst and Attomattox.
The well-equipped clinic is situated on the first floor of 1319 Enterprise Drive (Suite B) in Wyndhurst. Free parking is located both on the street in front and in the lot in back. The facility is easily accessed by those with mobility impairments.
The difference between Whole Health Physical Therapy and other service providers is the level of its one-on-one compassionate care. Each patient receives a minimum one-hour treatment with Beth with the ability to schedule longer sessions as needed.
In addition to handling complex spine issues and general orthopedics, Whole Health offers patients access to Functional Dry Needling, Feldenkrais Functional
Integration® and Awareness Through Movement®, Bones for Life™, Functional Movement Screen, Medical Therapeutic Yoga, and body mechanics, posture and safe movement mechanics for home, work, and yard/garden. These interventions can also improve sport performance.
This cash for service clinic is specially designed to assist patients who need effective, affordable treatment and follow-up maintenance to heal problems and prevent them from recurring.

Veteran physical therapist and certified wellness coach Beth Rini Scott says her hands are her best assessment tool.
That’s why her holistic physical therapy is geared to one-on-one compassionate care. She genuinely believes in the healing power of touch and each session lasts at least one hour as she works to rehabilitate injuries, restore mobility and seeks ways to prevent problems from recurring.
“I have always loved using my hands to make people feel better,” she says when asked why she selected physical therapy as a career. The Whole Health practice philosophy is a bit of a shift from what Beth is best known for treating—complex and chronic pain syndromes.
While still treating these conditions, she is now hoping to focus on preventing disease and chronic conditions from getting a hold on her patients in the first place.
Beth has over 30 years of experience as a physical therapist and opted to go back to running her own clinic in Lynchburg, VA (Wyndhurst) after working for more than 15 years in orthopedic practice with The Orthopaedic Center of Central Virginia.
“I wanted to return to practicing more one-on-one with my patients and to provide a more holistic approach where the whole body is treated, not just the injured part,” she said.
Beth achieved her Bachelor of Science in Zoology from Ohio University and then her Bachelor of Physical Therapy from the same facility. She achieved her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions in Provo, Utah.
She is also a Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner®, a Bones for Life ™ Teacher, a Certified Wellness Coach, a Certified Nutrition Therapist and holds a Cornell Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition. She is also certified in Functional Movement Screen (FMS) and Functional Dry Needling.
Happily married, she has three children, grandchildren and loves food and cooking, yoga, walking, hiking and outdoor living, yard work/gardening and reading. A self-confessed learn-a-holic, she devours many books and other media to explore new concepts for patient education and to stay up to date with evidence-based therapy.
