Our Story

Coming from an entrepreneurial family, our founder, Matt Casseday, always aspired to own his own practice. Matt began his career at a large rehabilitation network in Denver, where he eventually took on a leadership role. However, the large corporate environment didn’t give him the tools to run his clinic the way he wanted.

Matt’s dream of a locally owned and operated practice became reality in 2015 when Physical Therapy of the Rockies opened its doors in Littleton, Colorado. The practice expanded quickly, and a second location opened in Englewood the following year. Matt is now able to carry out his vision. The Physical Therapy of the Rockies team delivers excellent physical therapy, utilizes the most current and effective treatments to get the best results for patients.
