Our Story

OnPoint Physical Therapy started to help as many people as possible and assist them in attaining the highest level of function. This passion began when OnPoint owner and CEO, Chris Shannon, PT, MPT, DPT, was a youngster. Chris’s parents had disabilities, and he aided both of them, which grew his desire to help people do life better.

After graduating from the University of Washington, Chris went to work for the largest physical therapist-owned practice in Washington. During his 13 years with the company, he worked in many clinical and administrative positions, and he earned his doctorate in executive private physical therapy practice management. After the practice was bought by a large, private equity-owned physical therapist company, Chris left to start a new career path – physical therapist-led, private practice ownership!

With his education in executive private practice management, Chris understood the current issues that faced private practice owners and knew most are unsuccessful in their venture. He knew he would be even more successful by partnering with other like-minded individuals. Chris partnered with Health & Rehab Solutions, an organization that partners with entrepreneurial-minded physical therapists, inspires them to reach higher and equips them with the business skills critical for clinical success.

OnPoint Physical Therapy opened its doors in April 2017. Like Chris, OnPoint Physical Therapy has a strong sense of community and is dedicated to serving people and communities where they are located.

Michael Gillette

PT, DPT

Mike attended Michigan State University before joining the Navy in response to the events on 9/11. After the Navy, he moved to Boston and worked in the semiconductor industry for a couple of years before realizing he wanted work with people directly. He went back to school at the University of Massachusetts earning a business management degree with honors. Prior to graduating Mike became involved in CrossFit when it was still in its infancy as both a sport and fitness program. Soon after, he started to coach athletes in group settings and individually. While coaching full-time, he began to work with more athletes returning from an injury and the subsequent physical therapy. These athletes were without guidance from their therapists in how to integrate and return to their sport. This was the catalyst that led Mike to return to school to pursue his doctorate in physical therapy at Northeastern University in Boston. Mike has experience working with athletes at all levels including Olympians, NFL prospects, collegiate varsity athletes, tactical athletes, and weekend warriors. Though his passion is with the athletic population, he cares deeply for each person he has the opportunity to work with, regardless of their athletic background. Mike’s motto is “Every person is an athlete with their needs varying by degree, not kind.”
