Arthritis & Sports Turns 25!

Arthritis & Sports is proud to announce its twenty-fifth year as Northern Virginia’s leading orthopaedics practice. In an era when quality healthcare is paramount to everyone’s quality of life, the physicians of this orthopaedics practice have strived to provide prompt and effective care for the region’s growing population.


Arthritis & Sports began operations in 1998 when Dr. Randall Peyton, the company’s founder and CEO, opened the doors to his office on January 1st. With only a small office staff and one cell phone to connect with patients, Dr. Peyton began his journey to provide his community with the orthopaedic care it desperately needed.

With the early success of his practice, Dr. Peyton knew that there was a growing need for specialized orthopaedic care in the area. Over the next two and half decades, he proceeded to add several accomplished, board-certified physicians to his team. With each new addition to the practice, Dr. Peyton brought highly-specialized care to his growing patient population, thanks to each physician’s unique fellowship training.

Over time, Dr. Peyton’s vision would expand into what it is today: making Arthritis & Sports a one-stop practice that serves all of the community’s orthopaedic needs. In twenty-five years’ time, Dr. Peyton expanded his practice to cover everything from basic orthopaedic care to sports injuries, joint replacements, and pain management, as well as care for pain and injuries for each major joint. To keep the continuum of care a hassle-free experience for patients, Dr. Peyton also added on-site x-ray services, allowing patient’s injuries and issues to be quickly diagnosed and assessed.

Arthritis & Sports’ physical therapy department, which opened over ten years ago with a handful of therapists, is now home to over a dozen highly qualified physical and occupational hand therapists who offer a high degree of expertise in orthopaedic care. In the last ten years, Arthritis & Sports has bridged the gap between healthcare and wellness by opening our Wellness Studio, offering patients access to massage therapy and nutritional programs. Together, the PT and wellness team help over 100 patients a day to restore and maintain their optimal physical potential.

Bolstered by the company’s continual growth, Dr. Peyton decided to bring Arthritis & Sports' signature quality to patients in southern Loudoun County. Our South Riding office, which recently celebrated its six-year anniversary, is home to the same quality care that our first office is known for, featuring onsite orthopaedic care, physical therapy, and digital x-ray services.

Arthritis & Sports’ continual growth reflects the company’s ongoing commitment to delivering the most effective, state-of-the-art treatments for patients of all ages. “Our success and longevity is due in part to the advanced capabilities of our providers,” states Dr. Peyton. “Not only do we help patients from our community, but also patients from across the US and around the globe. With thousands of patients visiting us each year, we have continued to grow our services to better help those in need.”

As Arthritis & Sports’ patient base has expanded, so has the company’s notoriety. During its twenty-five-year history, our providers have extinguished themselves as leaders in their fields, with recognitions and awards given by the likes of The Washingtonian, Northern Virginia Magazine, Virginia Living, and Castle Connolly.

What began as a small office has grown into a thriving practice. However, our commitment to help our patients has always stayed the same. “We are focused on restoring your independence, so you can live more of the life you want,” says Dr. Peyton. “Our quality of care enhances your quality of life.”
