Meet The Doctor
Executive Director & Sports Rehab and Performance Specialist
Dr. Carlos J. Berio, the Executive Director of Spark Physiotherapy, is among the most highly trained physical therapy professionals in the D.C. Metro Area. Since 1998, he has worked with clients across a wide spectrum of health and fitness. Carlos earned his Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from the University of Maryland at College Park, and subsequently earned his Master’s degree in Clinical Exercise Physiology from George Washington University. His education is rounded out by a Doctoral Degree in Physical Therapy.
Carlos’ passions lie in attaining client rehab goals and the highest level of performance possible. Because of his attention to detail, unique treatment style, and one-on-one care, his clients move without pain and undergo amazing transformations in their physical condition. Carlos derives the most satisfaction from the helping patients become highly educated about technical aspects of their body and how the entire “chain” functions as a whole.

Why Choose Us
What Our Clients Say
I can't speak highly enough about the people and facility at SPARK. As a collegiate athlete, I tore my ACL two times in four years. I had the pleasure of training with SPARK for this second rehab and I would not be as far along in recovery without Kristen and Carlos. Their PT knowledge, attention to detail, and coaching is the best in the DMV area. I can't imagine working through a sports/work related injury with any other PT facility.
- Kyle Matthews
Spark Physiotherapy is by far the premier physical therapy location for athletes in the entire DMV. Dr. Berio, Dr. Lattimore, and Dr. Sleziak provide top notch 1-on-1 care for the entirety of your visit. Unlike other physical therapy locations where you are a number that gets maybe 10 minutes of someone's attention, you get 1on1 care for your entire time. They are all experts in their respective fields and extremely approachable. I have been going here for about 4 years and have been extremely happy with the experience. On top of that they are extremely responsive to e-mails and understand that each patient is different (thus creating a unique plan for each patient).
