About Kassandra Chrisco, DPT
Kassandra Chrisco, PT, DPT is a licensed physical therapist with experience in multiple treatment settings. Her mission is to provide individualized physical therapy treatments through a holistic full body approach to finding the root cause of a patient’s barriers to function.
Kassandra moved to Humboldt County in 2019 from San Diego, CA where she graduated with her Bachelors Degree in Kinesiology with a Minor in Spanish from San Diego State University, then earned her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences. She began her career as a physical therapist in an outpatient setting where she specialized in orthopedic and neuromuscular conditions as well as treating a number of vestibular cases through Applied Functional Science.

Her experiences have helped to prepare her for many medical, emotional and environmental barriers that may affect someone’s return to pain free daily activity.
Kassandra’s decision to open her own practice came from her desire to help keep individuals active in their community and to empower others to take charge in their own health and wellness journeys. She is excited to bring her holistic and compassionate treatment style to her practice located at Center for Natural Medicine in Arcata, CA.

"I d just like to say what a pleasure it was working Kass!! She explained why we did certain exercises and what the expected outcome would be! Very professional and a little funny too! You won’t be disappointed."
"I worked with Kassandra following one of my many brain surgeries. I wasn't always a fan of PT for vestibular therapy but she quickly changed my mind. Her knowledge and wonderful bedside manner made my recovery easier. You could tell she cares and loves her work as much as she loves her patients. She was/is a pure joy to work with."
