Chris Martinez, DPT
PHYSICAL THERAPIST | BAINBRIDGE ISLAND
A native Texan, Chris is a recent transplant to the Pacific Northwest from Boise, ID. His back ground in Studio Art and high mechanical aptitude are strong influences in is application of functional manual therapy, joint and soft tissue mobilization.
Chris has completed numerous functional manual therapy courses offered through The Institute of Physical Arts. He is also specialized in treating long term and emergent neurological conditions and excels in helping complex patients with balance, coordination and vestibular concerns (dizziness to the rest of us).
Most importantly, he prides himself on providing the best patient care possible. Each plan of care is fine tailored to every patient with emphasis on the fundamentals of their abilities, their difficulties and setting meaningful goals on how to return them to full function. His client populations include seasoned athletes, patients with complex presentations, the “over doers” and those looking to get back in to the swing of living life to its fullest.
