About Us

Kris Kuehl PT, DPT, OCS

I've been practicing physical therapy since graduating from the University of Minnesota (Ski U Mah!) with a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 2012. My first exposure to physical therapy was as a kid, when I had a few visits to address a painful bump on my knee. Ever since, I have been curious about how the human body works! My approach is to listen and learn from my patients about what they are feeling and want from PT, utilize my mind, eyes and hands to help people function with less pain. I am a curious soul with a fondness for learning and have spent a great deal of my own time since graduate school furthering my clinical skills to improve my clients outcomes.

My career focus has been in orthopedics and in 2016 I received my Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS) certification from the American Board of Physical Therapy. My clinical areas of focus include: Osteopathic Muscle Energy (MET), hands-on manual therapy, myofascial release, neural manipulation, craniosacral therapy, neuromuscular re-education and corrective exercises.

In my time away from the clinic I enjoy relaxing outside, hiking and creating art. I also enjoy time with family & friends, following the Vikings & Gophers and playing board games.

Darryl Saliva PTA

Darryl grew up in North Miami Beach, Florida. He enlisted in the U.S Air Force immediately following high school. Towards the end of his enlistment, he became interested in physical therapy because he realized he enjoyed working with individuals and making lasting impacts on their lives by helping them achieve their fitness goals, regaining or maintaining their independence, and lead active lives.

He moved to Minnesota in 2017 where he attended and graduated from Anoka-Ramsey Community College in May 2021 where he received his PTA degree. Darryl joined Midwest Physical Therapy in September 2021.

He and his wife live in Plymouth and together they lead a very active lifestyle that includes CrossFit, Olympic weightlifting, hiking various trails in the U.S., biking, kayaking, longboarding, and surfing.
