Kinetix founder and lead therapist Renato Hess earned a Master of Science degree with an emphasis on Physical Therapy in 2001. He is an Orthopaedic Certified Specialist by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties.  Hess has had hands-on experience treating patients with musculoskeletal dysfunction, sports-related injuries, chronic pain, cervicogenic headaches, multiple sclerosis (MS), vestibular rehab, post-op orthopedic surgeries, stroke, spinal cord injury, fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) and home-health care issues. Hess has also researched the McKenzie Method  (non-operative therapy to reduce and alleviate pain from bulging discs) and was clinically trained in its techniques as a student.

Hess has worked throughout the United States via contract assignments in the Veterans’ Administration (VA) system, inpatient rehabilitation, home health, non-profits, skilled nursing facilities as well as several outpatient facilities in the Chicago area (RIC, Athletico, Illinois Masonic).

Spanish-speaking patients can feel comfortable with Hess’s ability to obtain a proper history and run physical therapy sessions entirely in Spanish without an interpreter.
