About Dr. Matt Hastings, PT, DPT
Originally from the Northeast, Matt attended Roger Williams University where he played Men’s NCAA Lacrosse before completing his Bachelor’s degree at the University of Vermont. It was during his time in Vermont that he discovered the benefits and value of physical therapy while recovering from his own low back injury he sustained while skiing.
Finding PT as a career path led Matt to pursue his Doctorate of Physical Therapy at the New York Institute of Technology. After completing his coursework and clinical rotations in acute rehabilitation, outpatient neurology, and outpatient sports and orthopedics, he worked for a number of years in orthopedics in New York City before relocating to Denver, Colorado.
Matt’s clinical background with sports, orthopedics, and spine conditions, combined with his passion for sliding on snow and being outdoors, has made his treatment approach uniquely tailored to the patients he serves. This allows him to truly understand the goals and activities of his patients, and build appropriate plans of care and programming to help safely and effectively return them to the activities they love.
When he’s not helping his patients achieve their goals, he enjoys pushing himself skiing, biking, and golfing as well as spending time with his wife Rachel, daughter Thea, and dog Toast.
