Christin Clendaniel, PT, DPT, CCCE

Christin has a passion for management of orthopaedic spine and extremity injuries. She combines her clinical expertise with current best evidence for evaluation and treatment techniques to maximize patients' goals.


"At the end of the day, I want to know that I have gone the extra mile for each person so they can obtain their fullest potential. I strive to educate patients on not only what their current diagnosis is, but also, how this will affect them in their daily lives and what they can do to take charge of their situation. I believe that when people can be empowered with the correct tools, they can achieve great things."

Christin has a strong emphasis in manual therapy and strengthening for both preventative and post-operative rehabilitation for the musculoskeletal system. She has a comprehensive background in manual therapy for treatment of the spine. She is certified in performing functional capacity evaluations and pre-work screenings and enjoys working with people to help return them safely to their work duties.

"Every day I am grateful to be given the opportunity to raise my two beautiful girls with my husband, Sean in Flagstaff. I love being able to go for hikes and runs with our four-legged family members, Haida and Bailey. We are devoted to the Flagstaff community and are proud to call this home."
