Dr. Zoe Pond-McPherson is a physical therapist in Washington, DC. She graduated from The George Washington University with her doctorate in physical therapy. Prior to becoming a physical therapist, she worked as an investment operations analyst, moved to the Philippines for two years for her husband's job, and competed in the CrossFit Games.
She is passionate about keeping people moving throughout their lifespan, which is what guided her towards pelvic health physical therapy. She enjoys working with individuals with orthopedic and musculoskeletal pain and injury, but she also found many people stopped running and lifting because of incontinence and pelvic pain.
She has completed many advanced pelvic health courses including female athlete coursework, return to run postpartum, male and female pelvic floor focusing on incontinence, prolapse, and pelvic pain. Zoe believes that physical therapy care extends far beyond physical treatment, and enjoys helping people build sustainable habits to keep them moving throughout their lifespan. She is passionate about merging the gap between physical therapy and strength and conditioning so that people leave stronger, faster, and more confident in their abilities.

I have also been involved in the CrossFit community since 2013 and enjoy working with barbell athletes, pregnant and postpartum individuals looking to return to lifting, and general orthopedic injuries in barbell athletes.
I have two dogs named after 90's shows, Xena (warrior princess) and Conan (the barbarian).
My team finished in 7th place at the 2018 CrossFit Games.
I joined my high school lacrosse team as the only senior because they needed players, loved it so much I played D3 lacrosse in college.
Zoe helps me keep moving and achieving my fitness goals! I go to Zoe for everything from minor tweaks to abrupt herniated discs. She takes the time to listen to my concerns and makes sure I leave the session with a full understanding of diagnosis/treatment. And she will tailor our PT plan to make sure I still get good workouts, while also making progress on the focus area. I cannot over recommend Zoe!Sarah, Jun 17
Zoe is by far the best physical therapist I have worked with. She has been extremely knowledgeable and supportive throughout a long recovery process and genuinely empathizes with the importance of returning to full capacity after an injury. The exercises and progressions that she has planned have helped me regain range of motion and better manage chronic pain. I seriously don't know where I'd be without her and can't recommend her enough!Sarah, Jul 01
A great warm sessionRichard, Aug 16
