Owner / Clinical Director
Chris has been the owner and director of Physiofitness Physical Therapy since 1996 and has over 20 years of clinical experience in orthopedic and sports therapy. Chris’ philosophy and mission is to rebuild and reignite the physical self, not to settle for the temporary fix; to go deep to uncover the body’s own capacity and potential to heal, strengthen and surpass expectations.
Chris’ area of expertise is in advanced manual therapy. He holds certifications in Full Body Active Release Techniques® and Selective Functional Movement Assessment™. Whether it’s shoulder or hip dysfunction, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, persistent low back pain, orthotic management or post-surgical rehab, Chris and his team provide real, hands-on bodywork to correctly manage any orthopedic issue. The energy, passion and support you will experience is how success is measured at Physiofitness.
Being a triathlete and avid surfer, Chris fully understands the physical needs and injuries that often arise from training and participating in sports. On your visits to Physio, Chris is the first one to ask you straight out, “Are you moving better?” and that attitude is what drives the practice. His dream is to integrate the art and science of physical therapy into our everyday lives to keep people of all ages going strong. With a 15-year history as a type 1 diabetic, Chris is also passionate about maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle through exercise and nutrition and uses his experience to supplement his treatment plans.
Chris built Physiofitness on the foundation of his professional training: Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy from SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York; Senior Staff Therapist and award-winning lecturer at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center; and Director of Physical Therapy Services at Queens Orthopedic & Sports Medicine.
