Are your work or leisure activities limited by pain or stiffness? Are you able to participate in the sports that you love? Is pain limiting the time that you can do the things that you need and want to do? Do you find yourself having to sit or rest because of pain? Are you chronically taking pain medications or receiving injections for pain? If so physical therapy can help you return to those tasks and activities and do them freely.
Kriz Physical Therapy was founded by Mike and Tiffany Kriz in September of 2008
Our vision was an office where the needs and goals of patients are placed above the concern for volume. We wanted Kriz Physical Therapy to provide consistently excellent treatment provided by highly skilled physical therapists only, not delegated to physical therapist assistants or technicians.
When you enter our office you are greeted by, and spend all of your time with, your physical therapist. You are not led into a “gym” where you are left to do exercises that you can and should do at home.
We believe your time is valuable and should be spent working with your therapist directly to efficiently reach your goals for treatment.
“Since 1972, I have been in and out of physical therapy for treatment of a bad knee and back problems. Over 25 Physical Therapists have treated me but then I found Mike Kriz. Mike, in my personal opinion, is truly outstanding. For the first time I looked forward to going to therapy instead of dreading it.”
– Richard M. of Bonita Springs, FL
“Tiffany is a thorough, highly qualified Physical Therapist who has a friendly confident bedside manner. I received therapy for my leg and ankle after a break from a fall while hiking up a steep hill. Tiffany worked the area with skill applying manual therapy techniques to my ankle and leg and giving me exercises to strengthen my leg. Without her treatment I would not have recovered as well as I have, nor would I have been able to return to running.”
- Pat G. resident of McLean, VA and Bonita Springs
“When I arrived on Mike’s doorstep I saw people approaching his office and I said, ‘Wow, they really need help and then I suddenly realized that I was one of those people.’ I had a hairline fracture in my sacrum which I got after training for and running the NY Marathon. I was in a lot of pain and had been told by my doctor that I should not do any exercise since the sacrum is connected with practically every part of your lower back and body. No walking, running or swimming. Needless to say, I was very depressed and fragile. Mike mobilized the muscles around the area and this helped immediately to reduce some of the pain. His hands are truly inspired skillful tools and medicinal as well. He gave me exercises to do at home as well as hope. After a few weeks, I was getting better and he cut back the sessions. He could have given me more as the prescription called for, but he is just so honest, he would never do that. Not only is he the most talented therapist I have ever met but one with the highest sense of dedication and integrity. His knowledge of the body is extraordinary as well. In 6 weeks I walked, WALKED normally out of his office and felt a tremendous gratitude welling inside me as realized I was no longer one of those delicate patients hobbling along. I stood tall the way he had taught me to hold my shoulders and body and thanked God that I had found him.”
– Susan D. McC. Resident of NY and SW FL
“Tiffany worked on my torn rotator cuff for approximately 6 weeks. I had very limited movement when we started and it was almost normal when we ended. I was able to avoid surgery. She was capable and caring. I actually enjoyed my therapy sessions. I would recommend her services to anyone I know. She was always prompt starting and ending her sessions which made planning easy. They were very accommodating in scheduling around my schedule.”
– June G. resident of New York and Bonita Springs
So many of the conditions that we treat are the result of neglect of a chronic "under the radar" condition that has affected the way you hold yourself or has led to compensations in movement patterns. Movement patterns can be as complex as a golf or tennis swing or getting onto and off of the floor. The paradigm shift in thinking changes from treatment of injury to restoration of optimal joint and body function before mechanical and neurological problems arise. For example a midfoot that is tight will affect how the foot hits the ground and ultimately how the leg, hip and back respond. If left untreated dysfunctions can arise anywhere along the kinetic chain from spine down to the foot.
Our treatment approach treats you from the perspective of the entire system's function/ dysfunction and is remarkably different from "traditional" physical therapy. We assess joint mobility and strength, nervous system and visceral mobility as well as posture habits that all may directly or indirectly contribute to your pain whether it is a chronic condition or pre or post surgery influenced. Our manual treatments, based on Functional Manual Therapy, are augmented by exercise programs performed in the office and at home that support the treatments that we provide with our hands. We also address postural habits that exacerbate the symptoms or contribute to the inefficiencies that limit optimal potential from being reached. This can be augmented with a focus on wellness including health coaching and essential oils.
Optimum athletic performance is based on efficient mobility and stability as well as cardiovascular conditioning. We assess sports-related postures, balance, flexibility and core strength and endurance as the keystones to your optimal performance in your sport. Whether you play golf, tennis, pickelball or want to walk, dance or cycle more efficiently we can help.

We are a concierge PT practice and have chosen this model to preserve the therapist to patient relationship. The distinguishing characteristic of concierge physical therapy is the quality of the time that you spend with a therapist and only a therapist. This we feel is most important to restore optimum function to our patients because of the continuity of treatment provided by highly skilled therapists treating the patient for each visit during their course of treatment. Information about the concierge model as it relates to Medicare can be found on the Medicare website at: www.medicare.gov/coverage/concierge-care.html We also have discounted cash payment rates and are an out-of-network provider for private health insurance programs.
