20 years of skill that I use everyday. Lets get to work and learn some things!
I am a Physical Therapist, Certified Athletic Trainer, and Certified Manual Therapist with a significant amount of training in applied functional science, functional movement, and strength and conditioning. My experience includes being in full time clinical practice as well as teaching continuing education courses in lower extremity biomechanics for over 20 years. In addition, I utilize the skills I teach every day in the clinic. As an instructor I present a very functional, practical, and cost effective approach to running that can be implemented in the clinic the Monday morning after my class. -Keith Christianssen, PT, ATC, MTC
