Chris is incredibly knowledgeable and effective as a PT. His straightforward explanations of body mechanics and anatomy helped tremendously with my mind-body connection. I had a shoulder injury for months, which he rehabilitated (quickly!) over the course of a few sessions. He always checked in on my progress, even when we completed therapy, which gives a sense of how much he cares and values his patients. Chris is simply the best and I am so fortunate to have found such a great professional! Highly recommend!!

Chris is fantastic! He is kind, gentle, thoughtful and helpful! I have suffered from chronic neck pain leading to muscle tension migraines for most of my life. Chris listened and made sure he fully understood my pain and problem. He did some massage techniques using a tool called a "gua sha" that instantly relieved my pain. YES!! I happen to have this tool at home, but wasn't using it, so he gave me instructions on how to do so. He also gave me stretches to try to help alleviate the pain in the future. I really appreciated the quality of time he spent with me, the hands on care and the "homework" to leave with. I highly recommend Chris!

I have had the pleasure of working with Christopher since August 2022. I first came to him with chronic hip pain and being an athlete and someone who tries to stay active, I wanted answers and relief. Chris diagnosed me with a repetitive TFL injury, which he assured me that with the correct exercise and stretching, I would be back on my feet in a matter of weeks. He wasn't wrong. Chris is incredibly knowledgeable and gave me the proper tools, exercises, and stretches to remedy my lifelong repetitive injury. Even though my hip is now in excellent condition, I still see Chris once a week. He is wonderful to work with, keeps me on my proper plan, and works through any current issues I may have. I highly recommend Chris for any person of any age who needs physical therapy. Chris is fun to work with and honest about what is going on with your injury and will give you the proper tools to fix any issue you may have, and when your injury is healed you can still work with him or reach out to him if you have questions or concerns. His one-on-one professional care is paramount, and I truly feel like a new person after working with Chris.

Chris has been so helpful. I started sessions with him 2 months ago due to a shoulder injury 6months ago. I had already tried Physical Therapy but the shoulder pain continued to get worse and eventually froze up. Chris gave me great advice from his experience with frozen shoulders was able to refer me to a great Orthopedic that specialized in shoulders. Chris' treatments have been completely hands on and have made such a difference, reducing the pain to almost nothing. He has a positive disposition, is very compassionate and completely focused on my treatment during each session. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a good physical therapist.
