helping you maintain your active lifestyle with physical therapy & wellness

Do you want to: Stay active, stop taking pain meds, move with more freedom and do what you want and need to do?  We can help!

why physical therapy?

Are you able to do what you need and want to do? Is pain limiting your lifestyle?

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.

Why Kriz physical therapy?

Individual Attention for Every Patient

 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.

 

See What Our Patients Have to Say

 “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 


OUR SERVICES

Body Restoration

  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.

Rehabilitation/ Functional Manual Therapy (FMT™)

 

 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.

Athletic Performance Program

  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.  

  

Health Coaching

Prime Time Health is a scientifically proven plan for feeling young and living longer.  You will learn about good nutrition, make health simple and fun, and address obesity, disease prevention and wellness.  The focus is fitness, mood, memory, altertness, energy, the immune system, agility, and illness/disease.  Our goal is to help you grow as an individual and have a better quality of life as you age because your health impacts all areas of your life.

 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.
