Erik Kreil, PT, DPT
- Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist
Dr. Kreil earned his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Lynchburg College in Virginia, where he conducted clinical research pertaining to concussions in college athletes. This grew his curiosity in the provision of expert care for sport-related injuries, and he earned his Strength and Conditioning Specialty, adding to his understanding of these cases. Responding to a growing need for affordable healthcare locally, Erik led a student-run team providing free physical therapy services in an active learning environment for students while attending the Lynchburg College School of Physical Therapy. He values quality patient care, guiding his decision to work in a fitting environment in Los Angeles and his recent decision to begin his Residency education through the Virginia Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapy Institute here in Richmond with Progress Physical Therapy. Prior to pursuing a graduate degree in PT, Erik earned his Bachelor's degree in Kinesiology from Pennsylvania State University while playing rugby as a flanker. He enjoys cooking, board games, and coaching youth sports in his spare time.
