Physical Therapist

Matt Somma, PT, DPT, MTC, CSCS, is a licensed physical therapist with a clinical doctoral degree in physical therapy, and a certified strength and conditioning specialist. His clinical interests include surgical and non-surgical treatment of patients with spinal dysfunction. Matthew is also interested in biomechanical analysis of the overhead athlete, rehabilitation of the shoulder, and rehabilitation of low back dysfunction. He has been with OA since 2010 and is the senior physical therapy manager.
