Ashburn Clinic Director

Dr. Monica Rizkalla- RxWellness

Dr. Monica Rizkalla is the Clinic Director of RxWellness Spine & Health in Ashburn, Virginia. She was born and raised in Maryland before attending The Catholic University of America in Washington D.C. where she earned her Bachelor’s in Psychology and a minor in Spanish. She then pursued her Doctorate of Chiropractic and attended Palmer College of Chiropractic West in San Jose, California.

Dr. Monica has played sports her whole life and has tried almost every sport available. She started out with soccer, moved on to basketball and softball, and eventually played varsity volleyball. The high level of competition, not to mention previous injuries highlighted the importance of taking care of herself both on and off the court. Both her injuries, as well as those of her teammates, helped her understand the importance of preventing injuries and allowing her body to heal when injured. This led  her to choose a career to still be involved in the athletic scene, and have the ability to help the athletes regain strength to play instead of sitting on the bench. While attending chiropractic school she managed a strength and conditioning program where she worked with High School athletes that played at the club level and focused on injury prevention.

Dr. Monica was introduced to chiropractic at an early age in first grade when she experienced constant headaches, congestion, neck discomfort and sinus infections which led to her having a hard time focusing in class. She had seen several different health care providers to help eliminate her pain. One of the providers was a chiropractor and after one appointment and just one week of treatment she could already start to feel the difference.

One of Dr. Monica’s biggest strengths is connecting with people. She loves learning about different cultures and hearing people’s stories and experiences. She comes from a diverse background, with her father being from Egypt and her mother from the Netherlands, and believes that understanding a person’s background can help in personalizing patient goals and helping them achieve them. In her free time she enjoys spending time with her family, catching up with friends, attending church and going to the gym.

Dr. Monica is Board Certified by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners in Chiropractic and Physiotherapy and licensed by the Virginia Board of Medicine. She is specialized and experienced with treating athletes of all ages, pregnant mothers and children. She is certified in dry needling and rock tape.

Dr. Monica is honored to be able to serve the Ashburn and surrounding neighborhoods and can’t wait to meet you!
