About Christie: “I was seventeen when my world felt like it was flipped upside down by a knee injury. In the weeks following my injury I had surgery and started my road to recovery in physical therapy. It was the knowledge, skill, and overall support from my physical therapist that helped me through this tough time and got me back on my feet. This experience spurred my interest in helping others in a similar way and has since evolved into a lasting passion. Physical therapy is not about treating an injured body part; it’s about considering the person and determining what they need to reach their goals. Every person is different, which makes everyday a new and exciting challenge.”

Christie has experience treating patients of all ages with a wide variety of orthopedic and neurologic conditions, including athletic injuries, surgeries, and degenerative changes. Christie is also a guest lecturer and teaching assistant at Oakland University with over 6 years experience. She is certified as a National Instructor by the Kaltenborn-Evjenth Orthopedic Manual Therapy organization and has presented at the state and international level. She has collaborated extensively with Dr. Krauss and co-authored multiple peer-reviewed lab manuals with him.
