Chris Ponichtera PT DPT
Chris was born and raised in Depew, NY, where he currently resides. He graduated from St. Francis High School and then from Daemen College in 2018 where he earned his Doctorate of Physical Therapy. Chris then started at Buffalo Rehab Group shortly after graduation.
Like many others in the profession, Chris’ interest in physical therapy began following a personal injury. He broke his ankle when he was in 8th grade and attended physical therapy for rehabilitation. Chris returned to sports and has had a special appreciation for the profession since. His special interests regarding physical therapy include baseball-related injuries and sports rehabilitation, as well as developing a working friendship with his patients.
When he’s not at work, Chris loves to spend time exploring Buffalo (hiking trails, restaurants), playing slow-pitch softball & fantasy football, and spending time with his family, friends, and girlfriend, Molly. He is a self-identified “Bills-diehard” fan.
