Craig Rak was introduced to physical therapy as a high school athlete when rehabilitating from injuries to return to sport. He later developed a deep interest in the body’s resilience and capacity for movement as a weightlifter and CrossFit athlete.
Craig loves developing patient relationships with active listening and developing a safe environment for the patient. He believes this facilitates a deeper understanding of what brings a patient to him and what role he can take in their rehab process. Craig tailors his interventions and education to the needs of the individual rather than taking a one-size-fits-all approach. He feels this empowers his patients to ultimately recover in the most efficient way possible.
When not working, Craig lives an active lifestyle through mountain biking, hiking, weightlifting and pickleball. He prioritizes spending time with his wife and two dogs as family is very important to him. Craig and his wife are beyond excited to be expecting their first child this Spring.
