Name: Kris Riggs, PT, DPT

Position: Physical Therapist

Describe some of your job duties: I have a wide variety of job duties. Some call us a physical therapist, others say PT stands for “pain and torture.” What it ultimately comes down to is that I help everyday people have less pain and help them return to their everyday life. I have a special interest in working with sports medicine, from grade school to college athletes and the weekend warriors that get injured, I treat them all.

Favorite thing about working at SPO: The family centered atmosphere.

What is your greatest accomplishment at work? Helping patients do things that they say that they can’t.
