I selected Puget Sound Physical Therapy strictly because of their proximity to my workplace. I wouldn't go anywhere else now. Their techniques are fresh and innovative. I am experiencing incredibly positive results and am excited for a pain free future. If you have pain from an injury (new or chronic), years of poor posture, or any host of other reasons I encourage you to make an appointment.read more

Chris has 2 PhDs and is working on a third. He has every bone, muscle, tendon, ligament, and connective tissue and how they work together stored in his brain. If a standard approach (e.g. a stretch) doesn't work, he does this thing in his head to try to figure out "what your body wants". I had pain from a knee replacement that traveled up into my glutes and down below my knee somewhat that prevented me from sleeping. He had me try a few things and one of them -- a stretch -- worked after only 3 days of my doing it. I'm not good at sticking with exercises, so I'd do this one -- just one -- when the pain came back. Without the pain I was able to move around more, and that helped loosen tight tissues so that now I don't have to do the exercise any more. I also saw him vastly improve the pain of a woman who suddenly stood up under an overhead, compressing her entire spine. She went from hardly being able to walk (needing help from friends) to walking normally and driving during the weeks while I was getting treatment. Chris also did a study that showed that stretching cold muscles before athletic activity was not only not effective but could cause damage. The muscles should be warm when stretching. I would trust Chris to tackle any muscular/nerve pain I might develop in the future. I wish he was 2 people so he could also be my PCP.read more

My best physical therapy experience thus far. You'll get very personalized care here. The approach is different from my past experiences, but it seems designed to truly take care of whatever brought you there in the first place in a thoughtful, proactive and medically sound way. The receptionist and doctor are both warm, friendly and seem invested in providing you the very best care. I highly recommend this practice when you need PT.read more
