Why Choose Us

At Foundations Physical Therapy (formerly Summerville Fitness) you get individualized physical therapy at each appointment. We do not use a cookie cutter approach. Your posture, breath and movement patterns will be evaluated. Specialized muscle testing is used to help find compensation patterns in your body that may be a big contributor to your pain.

How We Can Help You

 We believe that the best way to help you to meet your goals is to provide one-on-one physical therapy.   We spend an hour with you and pay attention to the details during your session.

Our Mission & Vision

 

Our mission is to empower YOU to rid yourself of pain and injury so you can get back to the sports and activities you love!  We believe that looking at the way your whole body moves provides information that is vital to helping find the root cause of your pain. Teaching you how to move well, and helping you with the areas that are imbalanced, gives you the ability to perform at your best while breaking the cycle of compensation and pain.

We pay special attention to the foundational movements of your feet and your core.  Improving habits, practicing corrective exercises and performing functional movements helps you to perform better from your core out to your extremities and from your feet up to the rest of your body.

 

What We Do

Testimonials

Christina is very knowledgeable. She loves to share her knowledge to empower her clients. After I take a class with her, I know I have learned the skills that I need to help myself be successful. Christina is also very passionate about learning new techniques to help her clients. You can count on her to give you the best possible answer to any problem you may have.

Wendy

I have been to other PT centers and will ONLY return to Summerville Fitness. Christina is a knowledgeable and compassionate professional who really listens to her patients and clients. She is a highly trained PT but still continually educates herself with the newest techniques. She is also a Yoga Tune Up instructor and is trained in the Melt Method and NKT. She treats her clients and patients with dignity and respect while giving them top-notch care in the office and center. She also thoroughly demonstrates the at-home exercises and answers all questions with honesty, knowledge and respect. I highly recommend Summerville Fitness for all your PT and fitness instruction needs!

Jessica

My wife and I are taking Christina’s Foundation class. What we enjoy about her class, is that she not only instructs on the importance of proper movement but tells you the “why”. We are very impressed with Christina’s knowledge and problem solving ability. I have gone to many physical therapists regarding range of motion and flexibility issues to no avail. Within a few visits Christina was able to identify root causes and developed a plan to improve my quality of life. Thank you Christina.

William

Christina at Summerville Fitness really helped my son out when he injured his back. Her one on one attention helped speed up his recovery and get him back to playing sports faster than expected. Christina checked up on him at home and even sent videos of exercises to work on to keep up with his progress. Christina is knowledgeable, personable, and easy to work with. We couldn’t have been happier.

Lori

I had chronic neck issues for years. I went to Christina and she was extremely knowledgeable and was able to identify various compensation patterns that I was using causing the pain. Christina taught me techniques and exercises to stop these patterns which led to finally being pain free! She was also able to help my teenage daughter with back pain she was experiencing while playing softball and my teenage son with heel pain. Highly recommend Christina!!!
