Chris Ponichtera, PT DPT C-PS FAFS

Physical Therapist


Chris grew up in Depew, NY and attended Daemen University, where he graduated with his Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2018. He started with Buffalo Rehab Group shortly after.

Chris’s interest in physical therapy started after he broke his ankle in eighth grade. After attending physical therapy, Chris returned to sports knowing he would one day become a Physical Therapist. He enjoys treating baseball and other sports-related injuries.

Outside of work, Chris loves spending time exploring Buffalo — whether it’s hiking trails or trying new restaurants. He also enjoys playing slow-pitch softball, fantasy football, and spending time with his family, friends, and wife, Molly. He is a self-identified “die-hard” Bills fan.
