Hi, I'm Jimmy Picard, a physical therapist and running coach based in Roanoke, Virginia.

My expertise lies in working with runners and endurance athletes, drawing from my own competitive background in cross country and track.

My journey began at The College of William and Mary, where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and a minor in Mathematics. During my time there, I had a successful collegiate running career. However, my senior year was marked by a profound personal loss when my younger brother, Kyle, took his own life. In his memory and to raise awareness for teen suicide prevention, I embarked on a solo cross-country cycling journey from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean. A journey that lasted 45 days and offered me solace and reflection.

After college, I continued to pursue my passion for running, achieving new personal bests in distances ranging from the 5k to the marathon. An unexpected calf injury introduced me to cycling, where I quickly excelled and advanced to Category 2. This experience and my athletic background inspired me to pursue a career in physical therapy.

I earned my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2014 and have since dedicated myself to treating and coaching endurance athletes.

Beyond my professional life, I am a husband, father, and still an avid competitive runner. I am continually inspired by the resilience and dedication of the athletes I work with.

Does Redefine PT take my insurance?

No insurance needed. No referral needed.

Redefine Physical Therapy is an out-of-network provider. Being out-of-network allows us to deliver the best possible care. It puts you in the driver’s seat, NOT the insurance company.

You can easily determine your out-of-network physical therapy benefits by calling the number on the back of your insurance card. Oftentimes, your insurance company will reimburse you for some if not all of your PT services especially if you have a PPO plan.

As a “fee for service” model, payment is made at the time of service and there are no hidden costs. As a medical expense, you can use your HSA or FSA account to pay for physical therapy services. We accept payment through cash, credit card, and HSA/FSA card.

The state of Virginia allows you to see a physical therapist without a referral from your doctor. Physical therapists are musculoskeletal specialists. We are trained to diagnose and can identify conditions that are not appropriate for physical therapy. We will assess for any red flags and refer them out when necessary.
