Christi Lundberg, PT and Michael Bleffert, PT opened EOSPT in July of 2000. They wanted to open a more specialized physical therapy clinic to emphasize their unique training and experience. Christi and Michael specialize in “Orthopedic Manual Therapy.” This is a method of treatment that emphasizes a true “hands-on” approach which focuses on evaluation and assessment as much as treatment. This gives them the ability to assess the cause of the injury, and then apply the most appropriate and effective treatment. But where were they before they came to Idaho?
They moved here from the San Francisco area, where they had been working for 3 years at a large outpatient clinic. They spent many vacations in the Teton/Yellowstone area, and eventually moved to Idaho in July of 1998, to be closer to both sets of parents who had relocated to Idaho Falls and Jackson, WY.
Christi and Michael first met at the University of California- Davis while on the mens’ and women’s Crew (rowing) team. They both earned degrees in Exercise Physiology at UC -Davis before heading off to graduate school on different sides of the United States.
Christi attended Duke University in North Carolina for her Master’s degree in Physical Therapy (PT). She enjoyed a well-rounded PT education along with season tickets to the Duke Men’s Basketball games (Go Duke!). Michael earned his Master’s degree in PT from Mount St. Mary’s College in Los Angeles, CA. He was one of 10 men admitted to the first graduate program at the all women undergraduate college (Go women warriors?).
In 1995 they moved to Sacramento, CA, to attend a year-long course in Orthopedic Manual Therapy (OMT) at Folsom Physical Therapy Clinic - http://folsomphysicaltherapy.com/long-term.html
. The clinic and its instructors were dedicated to the practice of OMT, specializing in
the treatment of the spine, as well as all other joints. They learned as much as they could and are better physical therapists for that year of hard study and training.
Christi and Michael are grateful for the opportunities they’ve had to advance their Physical Therapy training in the past, and continue to attend courses and read to stay up on the latest techniques. They look forward to continuing to share their expertise and skills with everyone in Teton Valley!
