Christopher is a native of Morris, Illinois, a small country town located an hour and a half outside of Chicago. He received his bachelor’s degree in biology from Augustana College and his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Northern Arizona University. Chris first became interested in physical therapy after a knee injury threatened to keep him out of his senior year of competitive swimming. He was told he would be out of the water for three to four months, but with physical therapy he was able get back to training in under six weeks. His own personal success with orthopedic physical therapy ignited his passion for treating people of all ages and abilities to allow them to get back to enjoying and thriving in the activities that they love. In his free time, Chris enjoys working out, watching and rooting for his favorite sports teams, and spending time with his friends and family. Chris believes in building a strong rapport with his patients and using an evidence-based approach to create an individualized therapy plan for each one of his patients.
