I just concluded 8 weeks of physical therapy at your Fairfax office under the expert supervision of Kris Porter and his delightful assistant, Tanya. I have had five prior experiences with PT and I thought Kris was the best therapist I’ve met so far. He is excellent at explaining what is happening physically to my body and how certain exercises and stretches will help to alleviate my pain.
Others have said that I needed to strengthen my core, but they were unable to show me how to use my core in a way which would take advantage of my new strength and give my spine a rest. I knew about the concept of proprioception before, but I had only thought about it in terms of hand-eye coordination and movements in figure skating. Kris got me to think about my spine and core support in the same manner so that I am now visualizing what I’m doing wrong and how to correct it, and hopefully how to anticipate and prepare for or avoid certain positions. Kris is an excellent communicator, highly focused, energetic, and extremely knowledgeable. I imagine you have other excellent therapists, but if and when I am in need again, I will be looking for Kris.
