  • PT is a generalist

  • Distracted care with ineffective or inefficient treatments

  • 2-3 visits per week, no matter what you actually need

  • Copays, unclear costs, and surprise insurance bills down the line

  • Drawn out, time consuming, and only 80% recovered




"Chris came highly recommended by my orthopedic surgeon. Being in the medical field, I have high expectations for my medical care - and Chris met all of them. Working with Chris was one of the best decisions I made and undoubtedly led to a successful post-op recovery. He is extremely knowledgable in orthopedics and will make sure you're on the right track physically. Chris really gave me the tools to get back to being active again."

Post Surgical Rehabilitation

Rehab after surgery can be a long and tough process physically and mentally. Using state-of-the-art protocols, treatments, and techniques, we’ll help guide you through this process to restore your function and get back to your past activities even better than you were before.

Dry Needling

Dry Needling is a technique that uses the strategic placement of thin needles into trigger points of muscle. The needle causes the muscle to twitch and can help improve pain, tightness, and range of motion. It’s a great tool used to speed up pain relief and aid in recovery.
