Amanda Britt Trucksess, MD


A native Virginian, Dr. Amanda Trucksess attended The College of William and Mary where she was a member of their Division I swim team. With a strong interest in athletics as well as human biomechanics and physiology, Dr. Trucksess graduated cum laude with a major in kinesiology. She went on to earn her medical degree from the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine at the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond where she was named to the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society. Following medical school, she completed a four year residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.

Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (known as physiatry) is a sub-specialty of medicine that focuses on the restoration of function and the non-operative treatment of nerve, muscle, and bone disorders. Dr. Trucksess chose this specialty because it allowed her to integrate her interest in human physiology with her passion for patient care.

Whether a patient is a weekend warrior on the softball field or an Olympic marathoner, Dr. Trucksess' goal is to get her patients back to doing what they love. Her special interests within her field include the diagnosis and treatment of athletic injuries, running medicine and gait biomechanics, electromyography/nerve conduction studies, and the diagnosis and treatment of low back pain, including the use of epidural-steroid injections, trigger point injections and BOTOX injections for pain management. Dr. Trucksess uses cutting edge technology including ultrasound and fluoroscopy to diagnose and treat muscle, nerve and tendon disorders. She specializes in the use of non-operative techniques including PRP (platelet rich plasma) to treat arthritis, tendinitis and muscle/tendon tears. She serves as a consulting physician for the Washington Redskins.

Dr. Trucksess resides in Northern Virginia with her husband, three active children, and her dog, Buzz.
