We Understand the Demands of Your Life and/or Sport

We walk the talk! As physical therapists who exercise and participate in a large variety of activities/sports ourselves we understand what it takes.

Because of our background we know the importance of keeping you in the activities you love and we find ways to modify your training so you can stay in your sport throughout the rehab process.

What Other People Just Like You Are Saying About Backcountry Physical Therapy in Colorado Springs, CO

28+ 5-Star Reviews!

- Sudchai D.

“I can’t encourage Scott Runyon/Backcountry PT enough! I have a torn labrum in my hip and was set to go to surgery. Going to Scott was my last ditch effort to push surgery back and he did it! I have a very active job and I feel stronger now then I did before and Scott got me back to play again. What I really appreciate is that no matter what physical issues that arise I can go to Scott and he always finds a way to get me back in the game! Thank you Scott!”

- Mehdi S.

“I highly recommend Scott. I say this both as a patient and a fellow healthcare worker. He is very attentive, listens well and devises an appropriate treatment plan. But better than that, he is constantly assessing your progress and tweaking the plan as needed. Additionally, his use of technology is very helpful with a phone app that keeps you in line. He is also very quick to respond to any questions. Yes, you can find less expensive physical therapy options, but with Scott, you get what you pay for.”

- Rahul S.

“I’ve had multiple shoulder dislocations, and 2 shoulder surgeries. I started working with Scott remotely after moving to Colorado and 3 months post surgery. Scott designed a great program for me to get gradually stronger and build more endurance in my shoulder; we ramped up the difficulty and intensity of the program as I started feeling more confident and stronger. Scott designed the PT routine to also incorporate my hobby of whitewater kayaking. I enjoyed working with Scott, and would recommend him!”
