Steven is a staff physical therapist at Puget Sound Physical Therapy. He was born and raised in Thurston County. Steven graduated from the University of Southern California in 2013 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Biology with a concentration in Applied Physiology. After a year of working as a physical therapy aide, Steven matriculated into Columbia University’s Doctorate in Physical Therapy Program and graduated in 2017. Through his clinical experiences in school he has worked in a variety of settings across the nation ranging from acute care in a VA hospital in the Bronx, New York to outpatient, sports-specific rehabilitation with professional athletes in Phoenix, Arizona.
Steven has always loved sports and sports medicine and was fortunate enough to have pursued various educational opportunities from high school through graduate school and post-graduate to further his skills. He has specific interests in empowering his patients to “fix” themselves at home through specific exercise planning as well as hands-on manual therapy techniques to supplement the rehabilitation process. Steven culminated an orthopedic manual therapy residency through industry leader Evidence in Motion to further his targeted manual therapy interventions and help patients get better faster with a board specialist certification in Orthopedics in June 2019.
Outside of work, Steven enjoys exploring nature through hiking and hunting in the mountains, fishing in lakes and rivers, and traveling to new places.

Physical Therapist Connecting an individual's return to activity goals, whether an elite athlete or weekend warrior with the correct treatments, exercise, and movement patterns is my everyday priority. The focus of my care is in identifying movement and pain dysfunctions in orthopedic patients across the age spectrum. Because of my lifelong involvement in the soccer community through coaching and sports medicine (Sounders U23, Sounder Women's College, club), many of my patients are soccer athletes returning back to play from acute or overuse injuries. Our Starfire Clinic is a state-of-the-art facility that hosts the Seattle Sounders First Team, Sounders U23's, Sounder Women and Academy strength and conditioning efforts. We specialize in testing and preparing detailed treatment protocol for athletes, such as ACL reconstruction, ACL prevention programs, adolescent overuse injuries, and more.

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
