Dr. Christoper H. Mulvey, PT, DPT, CLT - Doctor of Physical Therapy
Driven to understand how the body works.
"Even as a kid, I was into sports. I was also interested in why my wrestling teammates had to be taped up. What was the reasoning behind it? Also, I was banged up often and spent time in the care of healthcare professionals, one of whom pointed me toward physical therapy. I started as a physical therapy assistant, and I knew right away that I wanted to be a physical therapist."
Committed to making a difference in the lives of others.
"What I love about this profession is the ability to positively impact the lives of others. I've worked with thousands of different people from professional and Olympic athletes to kids and grandmothers. I've been a manager for one of the world's largest rehabilitation companies. I've helped resolve some of the most challenging cases. Through it all, it's about people. It's about you needing to get back to your life and me doing everything I can to get you there."
Following a vision of excellence in physical therapy.
"I founded this practice on a pure vision. I believe in providing the most appropriate and most successful physical therapy possible. That means following the evidence and using the therapies that will get results. It means using the hands and hard-earned knowledge of true therapy professionals to achieve your goals. It means providing a place where excellence nurtured and enabled, for therapists as well as patients. I'm not in this business to provide therapy. I'm here to make a difference, and I'm proud to say that, here, this is well under way."
