Tim Newton DPT, OCS, CFMM


Tim Newton is the owner is Inspire Movement Physical Therapy.  He is passionate about manual therapy and its ability to help his patients.  Over the years, he has found that in addition to helping chronic orthopedic problems like back pain or sciatica, his work has been able to help people with headaches and migraines, digestive issues, and mental health.  He has advanced training in osteopathic manipulation techniques including craniosacral therapy, muscle energy, visceral manipulation, and myofascial release.  A strong advocate for an integrative and holistic approach, Tim believes strongly in the body-mind connection and is honored to help his patients along in their journey

Tim’s method of treatment is tailored to the individual.  He uses orthopedic tests to assess movement, but he does not direct treatment to where the symptoms are.  Instead, treatment begins where the tissue tensions are the most significant in the body.  This is even if it seems unrelated to the symptomatic area.  By listening to the body, he has found the most profound results and changes for his patients.

Tim is certified in functional manual medicine (CFMM) through the College of Osteopathic Medicine at Michigan State University. He has also trained through The Upledger Institute, and the Barral Institute, where he is a certified teaching assistant. He earned his doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2009 from the University of Delaware and is a board-certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS) through the American Physical Therapy Association.  Outside the clinic, he has also helped students with dissections as an instructor at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry, and speaks/consults for companies seeking to reduce injury risk on the jobsite.

Tim received his B.S. in Biology at Emory University and was a graduate from McDonogh School in Owings Mills, MD.  He swam competitively throughout high school and college and appreciates the uniqueness of the endurance athlete.  When he’s not at work, he is always up for a good, old-fashioned jigsaw puzzle at home.  His interests outside of work include hiking, kayaking, and camping with his family in the Maryland State Parks.
