Christy Allwein PT, OCS

As a dependent of a military service member, Christy grew up living in many different parts of the country and overseas, instilling a fond sense of travel at an early age. Having landed in several mountain towns boasting amazing outdoor beauty and recreational activities, Christy is happy to have recently settled into the Central OR region and share her love with outdoor mountain recreation with her patients, helping them to achieve all their personal PT goals so they can get back out there!

Graduating as a Physical Therapist from the University of Tennessee, she has been an Orthopedic Certified Specialist for more than ten years with a strong emphasis on treating the sports medicine and the active orthopedic population. Christy’s areas of clinical interest include the post-surgical population, with a solid background in cutting edge hip, knee, and shoulder arthroscopic and open techniques. She includes an integrated manual therapy, individualized exercise prescription, and functional/sport training approach into each of her patient's treatment plans, including both operative and non-operative populations. She has extensive training in the Stott Pilates technique, Maitland-Australian Approach, and is certified in the FMS Functional Movement Screen. Christy has lectured on the rehabilitation of hip arthroscopy and return to sport training to her fellow colleagues at the annual OHSU Physical Therapy Symposium. While at OHSU, Christy served as a residency board member and assisted with the successful implementation and launch of their first Orthopedic PT Residency Program.

Among Christy’s volunteer work has involved making multiple medical missions to Haiti through the Clarksville TN Mission Team.

When not at work, Christy enjoys spending time Telemark skiing, camping, hiking, singing, and traveling with her family and faithful furry golden doodle pup. (Yes, he sings too)!
