Kristopher M. Van Houten

2001 graduate of Central College with an Athletic Training/Exercise Science degree and obtained Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Duke University Medical Center in 2004. I began practicing Physical Therapy in Monterey, CA, and continue to work golf tournaments at Pebble Beach 3-4x per year. I’ve moved to the Des Moines area to be close to my family and work with my brother, Tate, at Integrated Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine.   I enjoy working with patients of all ages and physical abilities. I primarily utilize manual therapy techniques combined with postural restoration and therapeutic exercise to maximize outcomes.  Specialties are orthotic evaluation, casting and fitting of custom orthotics, postural restoration, and sports performance.  Outside of work Kris enjoys golfing, fishing, hunting, and spending time with friends and family.
