Matt has always been an athlete and believes the human body is designed to live, play, and be pain free no matter our age or history. He believes in our bodies’ ability to heal itself. Matt has had his fair share of running and sports injuries – excruciating knee, hip, shoulder, and back pain – and knows what it is like to be told “your body isn’t designed to ______” (fill in the blank with your favorite sport or activity). Matt has always believed his body had the ability to recover and finding posture alignment therapy gave him the tools to get himself pain free and back to living an active and fulfilling life. Matt is a licensed PTX Therapist, certified by the Egoscue Institute® as a Postural Alignment Specialist (PAS I & II) and Advanced Exercise Therapist (AET) and has over 20 years experience helping people become pain free.
Matt founded Oregon Exercise Therapy (OET) in 2013; previously working for 9 years as an Exercise Therapist, Clinic Director, and Therapy Director at Egoscue Portland and as an Instructor for Egoscue University®. He was an instructor for P3 Posture, Pain, and Performance workshops and Posture Alignment Specialist seminars from 2005 until 2013.
Matt has a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Exercise Science from Gonzaga University where he ran varsity cross-country and has been a certified Personal Trainer by ACE Fitness since 2001. He specializes in helping people understand the underlying cause of their pain and helping them restore their postural alignment and function so they can return to full, active, pain free lives. He has been helping people of all ages and backgrounds – including Olympic, Professional, and Amateur athletes, doctors, lawyers, teachers, construction workers, musicians, seniors, and children – become pain free since 2001.
