Physical Therapy Now lets you work one-on-one with an experienced physical therapist in the convenience of your own home. Our therapists focus on you, rather than being distracted by other patients in a clinic setting. We bring outpatient physical therapy and wellness sevices to you.
We specialize in pre and post op care, including joint replacement surgery, shoulder and back surgery, golf fitness assessment, and balance training.
With over 15 years of experience, our physical therapist will help you move and feel better.

Physical therapy after surgery is extremely important for ensuring a full recovery. In addition to many other benefits, post-surgical rehabilitation can also help you regain full range of motion in the affected area. Physical Therapy Now specializes in pre- and post-surgical physical therapy for total joint replacements and partial tears of muscles and ligaments. In addition, surgeries related to hips, knees, arms, hands, shoulders, and feet/ankles often require physical therapy for optimal recovery.
Golfers seeking help from a physical therapist with expertise in golf performance can achieve proper biomechanics and body movement while avoiding injury, eliminating pain from an existing injury and/or improving the consistency of the golf swing.
Improving your walking skills — technically known as your “gait” — and your balance are interrelated challenges. Physical therapy helps you master these skills to decrease your risk of injury, while at the same time increasing your confidence and independence.
Cristy started Physical Therapy Now over 5 years ago when she was frustrated with the patient care at the busy outpatient orthopedic clinic where she was working. She believed that patients could achieve their goals in the comfort of their own home, with individualized attention, and during a time that fit into the patient's schedule. She has achieved great success with her patients by providing 1:1 care for outpatient therapy services by tailoring each appointment to the patient's needs. She believes that all patients should be treated like family, giving them a comprehensive and thoughtful plan of care and treatment program.
For the last 16 years, Cristy has been helping individuals, ages 40 all the way to 100, live healthy and active lives. She approaches all her patients as one unit rather than a body part, optimizing their entire physical well being.
Cristy graduated with an undergraduate degree in Rehabilitation Psychology and Special Education from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2002. She completed her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science in 2005. In her free time, Cristy enjoys spending time with her husband and two kids along with her new puppy.
Cristy is Titleist Performance Institute Certified and is a FMT Movement Specialist.
