Focus Physical Therapy welcomes our newest therapist Cristin Reed PT DPT to our referral network and community! Cristin is a highly experienced clinician who approaches patient care with skill, compassion, humor and thoroughness. She is an excellent addition to our team, based out of our Eastside location, and should be considered for musculoskeletal problems for patients of all ages, with particular emphasis on problems of the spine, complex orthopedic problems and for patients who are otherwise failing to respond well or thrive in therapy programs elsewhere. Cristin is a great fit for our team and culture, and we are confident in the excellent care she will provide at Focus Physical Therapy.
Cristin Reed, PT DPT is a Bend native, and joined Focus Physical Therapy after returning home from many years living in the Washington, DC area. She is excited to be close to her family in Bend, and to participate in the many outdoor opportunities that Central Oregon has to offer.
Cristin brings a legacy of diverse orthopedic experience to her practice. She received her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2005, where she specialized in the treatment of the spine. She has treated a varied orthopedic patient population for 12 years. She is a hands-on, manually focused therapist with a broad toolbox of techniques to apply as needed to suit an individual patient. She is a motivated, compassionate and relatable provider of patient focused, goal-oriented care.

Cristin made me feel so comfortable and was so easy to talk to about the difficulties/pain I was having with my body. It was truly a joy coming to PT (which I don't think may people can say that). The staff was always so friendly and welcoming. I wouldn't go anywhere else for my PT needs or to any other therapist for that matter!
