Dr. Allen R. Jones, Jr., is a licensed physical therapist in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Dr. Jones is the owner and CEO of Dominion Physical Therapy, a practice he founded in 1990 and has since expanded to six locations in the Hampton Roads region.
With strong ties to its surrounding community, Dominion has nurtured the same goal for nearly 30 years: to combine evidence-based therapy with superior customer service in a warm, friendly environment.
Dr. Jones and his highly-credentialed staff provide individualized, patient-centered rehabilitative and therapeutic care. Dominion specializes in the treatment of neck and back pain, sports and personal injuries and many other musculoskeletal conditions, as well as work-related injuries with a preventative approach. Its Oyster Point office in Newport News is dedicated to the rehabilitative needs of children.
Virginia has been Dr. Jones’ home since 1987, the year he completed his degree in physical therapy from the University of Connecticut. Dedicated to continuing education, he earned a Doctor of Physical Therapy from Rocky Mountain University School of Health Professions in Provo, Utah, in 2014 and also holds a postgraduate certification in Clinical Management of Head, Facial and Neck Pain and TMJ Disorders. He has been a member of the American Physical Therapy Association since 1988.
Dr. Jones’ passion for high-quality care has led to numerous awards for his practice, as well as statewide leadership positions. In 2016, Gov. Terry McAuliffe re-appointed him to the Virginia State Board of Physical Therapy, past President 2016-2018. He was appointed to the Virginia Board of Health Professions in 2014, and currently serves as vice chairman.
For nearly three decades, Dr. Jones has worked hard to foster a spirit of community involvement and service through his practice. Each year, Dominion awards a Doctorate of Physical Therapy Scholarship to well-deserving students at Old Dominion and Hampton universities. In 2014, Dr. Jones provided financial and staffing support for a collaborative trip with ODU specialists to the Dominican Republic to educate clinical staff there on the treatment of autism spectrum disorder.
Dr. Jones serves as a board member of the Peninsula School for Autism, Norfolk State University Foundation and Old Dominion University School of Physical Therapy & Athletic Training; he is on the advisory boards of Sonabank, Old Dominion University College of Health Sciences and the Virginia Living Museum. In 2015, Dr. Jones was awarded the Virginia State University Alumni Association’s Distinguished Public Service Award.
Dr. Jones is married to Gail Boyd Jones, a Hampton native and a physical therapy assistant in his practice, and is a proud father of four.
