Matt Elniff PT, MPT, FAAOMPT
Fellow of the American Academy for Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapists
Matt graduated from Kansas State University in 2003 with a Bachelors of Science where he studied Kinesiology “the study of movement”. He graduated with his Master’s in Physical Therapy from Wichita State University in 2006. After graduation, Matt worked on an APTA accredited Manual Therapy Fellowship with The Manual Therapy Institute (MTI) from 2007-2012. During his time in the MTI program, he worked on an orthopedic residency in Phoenix Az from 2007-2010. Once completed with the residency, he did his Fellowship studies, in 2010-2012, at the Abay Neuroscience Center in Wichita Ks. This center was an APTA credentialed Fellowship site which allowed Matt to become a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapists. The clinical and didactic instruction of the Residency/Fellowship is intensive and includes an extensive mentored clinical experience which provides Matt advanced clinical skills with evaluations, hands-on treatments addressing: nerves, joints, and muscles. Matt assesses for movement disorders which lead to muscle imbalances, joint dysfunction, and nerve pain; he works to correct the cause of the impairment leading to loss of function. When you address the cause of the pain and work to correct it, this leads to successful outcomes in rehabilitation. Matt has spent his career in Orthopedics. Most recently, he spent 10 years working in a multidisciplinary clinic with MD, DC, and PT. It was there he realized how collaborative care leads to the greatest recoveries. Matt started as the Lead PT with Core Medical Center in 2022. Matt is excited to continue his career working in a multidisciplinary clinic that values patient care and collaboration between providers.
