Christina Panetta – PT

Our mission started with Christina Panetta, PT, a graduate of Stony Brook University and the national chairperson for the Try PT First Campaign, who founded Panetta Physical Therapy in 1987. After setting up our first physical therapy clinic inside Amritraj Racquet & Health Club (now the World Gym) in Bay Shore, NY, Panetta soon became known for our unique blend of hands-on physical therapy, as well as exercise programs that can be delivered in either the facility’s sophisticated gym or warm therapeutic pool. With over 500 area physicians referring their patients to us, Panetta opened a second clinic in Roslyn, NY to service the increasing demand from New York City and Nassau County.

Doctors often send their patients to Panetta because of our physical therapists’ technical expertise and our result-driven programs, but patients tell us the thing that sets us apart is the incredible care and attention they receive here. Treatment starts with a thorough evaluation to determine the underlying cause of your problem. From there, we develop a detailed, individualized plan of care. As a patient, you will be assigned a patient care coordinator and matched with a physical therapist who can best help you achieve your personal goals.
With both early morning and late evening hours available, and a friendly staff to help you navigate the insurance paperwork, we can help you make quick strides toward improved, injury-free motion.

OnetoOne Physical Therapy is number one with patients. Through the years, OnetoOne has grown from physician referrals to patients referring friends and family members. That’s important to us because it means we’re providing the kind of effective, hands-on care that people trust

We take great pride in providing the technical advancements and personal care to diagnose, test, and treat patients recovering from the pain and physical limitations caused by injuries, accidents, and illnesses. That’s probably why doctors don’t’ just send us their patients; they send us their friends and families – and even trust us for their own physical therapy.

will-humphreysWill Humphreys , PT

Will was born and raised in El Paso, Texas. It was as a high school senior that he first became introduced to the field of Physical Therapy when he became a patient himself after a critical rock climbing accident that left him with broken arms, wrists, legs and ankles. During this time, he decided he wanted to become a Physical Therapist and began planning his college path to do so.

After High School, Will attended Brigham Young University Idaho in Rexburg, Idaho, and also served a two-year mission for his Church in the country of Guatemala. He returned to Brigham Young University, where he met and married his wife, Heather, and then transferred colleges, returning to El Paso to attend the University of Texas at El Paso for their Physical Therapy Masters Program.

Will spent three years in the Physical Therapy Program at UTEP and while there, served as his Class President. After graduating from the program, Will and his family moved to Chandler, Arizona to pursue a career in Physical Therapy.

Thus began Affinity Physical Therapy, which Will has owned and run for 5 years in Florence, Arizona as well as his most recent expansions in Coolidge, Arizona and the City of Anthem.

Will has also served on the Florence Chamber of Commerce, sponsored many local events including the MS Bike Race and the Anthem Annual Health Fair. He also donates much of his time to participating in his Church and working with the Boy Scouts.

Craig-headshot-150Craig Hawkins DPT, OCS

Craig grew up in the Jefferson, Oregon area located in the mid-Willamette Valley.  He went to Oregon State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Pre-Physical Therapy studies.  His professional training continued at the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific in Pomona, California.  Here he received a Masters of Physical Therapy degree and was also awarded the Chair Person Award by his classmates given to the well-rounded student academically and socially.  After practicing for seven years he received his Doctorate degree with the Ola Grimsby Institute in San Diego, California.  It was here that he followed his passion to be trained in orthopedic manual therapy.  This was a residency program that lasted two years involving both academic rigor and clinical practice of manual therapy techniques to restore normal joint motion of the spine and the extremities.  Training was also received in scientific therapeutic exercises to restore normal coordination patterns of muscle tissue to support the joints of the body for optimal performance.  Craig received his Orthopedic Clinical Specialist certification in 2003 from the Board of Physical Therapy Specialties.  Being OCS (Orthopedic Clinical Specialist) certified means Craig is in an elite group with less than 4% of therapists nationwide having received the OCS certification.  To be a board-certified Orthopedic Specialist, you have to complete an additional 2,000 hours of experience in this field as well as pass a written exam.  This certification was established to provide formal recognition for physical therapists with advanced clinical knowledge, experience and skills in a special area of practice. Craig had worked in a variety of out-patient physical therapy settings for ten years before starting Pinnacle Physical Therapy in 2007.  He believes in continually learning new and powerful treatments to help patients heal as fast and fully as possible through ongoing education, professional training, mentorship and research.  Recently, Craig became a Graston Technique practitioner.  The Graston Technique is a non-invasive technique using patented stainless steel instruments to evaluate and treat chronic myofascial pain and tendonitis.

Personally, he has always been involved in sports and music.  In high school he played basketball, football and ran track.  He strums the guitar and enjoys leading worship at his local church.  Most of all, Craig loves spending his free time with his wife, Debbie, and their four children camping, fishing, hunting, and playing board games.
