His initial job after leaving school was at an elite sports performance facility where he gained valuable knowledge and experience with athletes that were preparing to “get back on the field.”  This invaluable experience provided opportunities where he was able to combine rehabilitation with sports performance and conditioning.  

 

Kur's primary focus is in the outpatient orthopedic setting and the athletic population.  He has had exposure to athletes of all levels, including the professional level.  He is a strong proponent of manual techniques, functional dry needling, and functional movement retraining to help patients and athletes reach their full potential. Kur has a special interest in sports performance and bike fitting and is a certified Clinical BikeFit Pro, Certified Functional Strength Coach (CFSC), and Functional Movement Systems (FMS) specialist.  

 

He utilizes these unique skill sets to accurately assess, diagnose and treat individuals that are having performance issues on and off the bike.  As an athlete himself, he understands the unique demands that are required to perform on the bike comfortably and efficiently.   He is passionate about biomechanics and sports performance and truly believes that elite level physical therapy should be available to athletes of all levels.  Tapping into the athletic potential of the human body is what drives him to provide this service to the DC area. In his spare time, he is found riding his bike on the roads and trails of the DC Metropolitan Area enjoying the great outdoors.  He resides in Sterling, VA with his beautiful wife and two children.

Dr. Chris   Brindley

Chris practiced sports oriented deep tissue massage therapy combined with Active Release Technique (ART) for over 10 years. He is also a graduate of University of Western States with a Doctorate in Chiropractic, a Masters of Sports Medicine, and is a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP).  This diverse background has strengthened his skills in anatomy, assessment, diagnosis, and ability to get to the root of more complex musculoskeletal issues.
