Dr. Cruz Mannherz, DPT attended Lebanon Valley College (LVC) in Annville, PA where he earned his Bachelor of Science degree and continued on at LVC to earn his Doctorate in Physical Therapy.
Dr. Mannherz's passion for physical therapy began with his own athletic injuries in high school where he played football and wrestled locally in Frederick. He has kept his roots in the area and continues to call Frederick "Home." Through the profession of physical therapy, he was able to go on to play four seasons of collegiate football. Dr. Mannherz's desire to understand his own injuries and return to competition is what continues to motivate him to provide the same service for others.
In his spare time, Dr. Mannherz enjoys watching and talking sports (both real and fantasy), play golf, and would like to consider himself a decent home brewer.
Dr. Mannherz is a member of the APTA and has mentored several aspiring local PT/PTA students. He is excited to get his community back to doing what they love Above ALL else!
