Chris Fiedler, Lead Tech
Chris first became interested in Physical Therapy my sophomore year of college at William and Mary after taking classes that focused on exercise-related prescription and rehabilitation. As an ice hockey player plagued by injuries through the years, Chris found it interesting that through hard work and determination one could not only feel better through physical therapy, but also be better prepared to prevent future injuries from occurring. Having participated in a team setting throughout his years playing ice hockey, Chris finds it especially meaningful to work alongside patients as a team to help them get better and back to feeling better than before! Working at POPT will allow Chris to build a strong foundation in the field of Physical Therapy before applying to Physical Therapy school. Eventually, Chris hopes to work specifically with athletes, helping with both orthopedic rehabilitation and concussion management - a topic he has great interest in. Chis looks forward to meeting all of the wonderful patients who call POPT their home!
