Greg Fritz, PT, RMSK

Greg has over thirty years of experience as a physical therapist and started his career at Island Hospital in 1986. He ultimately desired the freedom and challenge of private practice so he moved to Chehalis, WA to develop an industrial rehab center and a clinic focusing on sports and orthopedic injuries. After growing ‘Chehalis Valley Physical Therapy’ to 2 clinics, Greg chose to sell the operation to a national rehab company. Longing for the peaceful lifestyle of Fidalgo Island, he returned to Anacortes in 1999 with his wife Janelle and his kids, Laurel and Hans.

A student of anatomy and movement science, Greg continues to be fascinated by the human body and his professional interests include muculoskeletal ultrasound imaging in physical therapy, job-site ergonomics, industrial injury prevention, fibromyalgia, TMJ/Jaw pain, balance training and sports/orthopedic rehabilitation. He enjoys flying, art, family, church and laughing.

Greg was one of three physical therapist recipients in the nation of a “Pioneer Certificate” in Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Imaging (RMSK) in Washington State. This imaging tool is pivotal in the correct management and diagnosis of many orthopedic injuries. Greg lectures and trains interested clinicians in the use of this tool in their practices.

She is wife of Kyle Baker, a naval aviator who flies the EA-18G, and mother of Allyson, 9, and Ryley, 6.
