WHAT CLIENTS SAY
"Kevin is an amazing PT! He did a great job of working with me to figure out what was causing my shoulder pain while climbing. He also provided an incredibly detailed rehab plan - it was way more thorough than I expected based on my experience working with other PTs in the past. I highly recommend him to anyone who is dealing with climbing-related pain or injuries!" -Cynthia
I started The Climb Clinic with the intent to be a safe, accessible, and inclusive space for the community. I strive to provide basic healthcare needs, skilled rehab and physical therapy services, and strength training eduction to the community of Broomfield and the surrounding area. Resolving pain, restoring motion, and optimizing performance should not be exclusive and I hope through free consults, community outreach, diversifying my education and resources, and practicing within a climbing + fitness facility that I can provide a safe, accessible, and inclusive environment to a diverse population.
I hope to continue to grow as a clinic owner, healthcare provider, and person as I pursue opportunities to learn how I can better serve and cultivate an environment that 1) has zero tolerance to discrimination or prejudice, 2) becomes more inclusive to the BIPOC and LBGTQ community, 3) actively accommodates for individuals with disabilities (physical and mental), and 4) provides opportunity to underserved and marginalized members of the community. I recognize I will not be perfect in my pursuit to become a better ally for my community, but I plan to continue to learn from my mistakes and identify actionable recourse to best serve the community.
