Christian Roy graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Health and Rehabilitation Sciences with certification in Pathokinesiology. He completed his education to earn a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from the University of Pittsburgh in 2015. While at the University of Pittsburgh he was a member and captain of the Men’s Lacrosse Team. Prior to relocating to Maui, Christian worked in a busy outpatient orthopedic clinic in Connecticut where he gained experience in post-surgical and conservative treatment of various orthopedic conditions.
Christian has a strong interest in orthopedic and sports-related injuries; having worked with various professional and semi-professional sports teams while in Connecticut he assisted athletes in returning to sport as quickly as possible. He is most focused on administering various manual therapy techniques and implementing hands-on care to help reduce pain and restore function. He has completed the basic training to become certified in Graston Technique, a form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively restore soft tissue properties and reduce fascial restrictions. He has also become certified in the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (Level 1) which enables him to provide a full-body assessment and identify impairments that may be contributing to the current problem. Christian has recently completed the extensive Complete Concussion Management course, now allowing him to help with the treatment and recovery for those who have suffered from a concussion. What he enjoys most about being a Physical Therapist is meeting new people on a daily basis while positively impacting their quality of life.
