Matt Barney, DPT
After graduation from Utah Valley University with a degree in Exercise Science and from the University of Utah with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy, Matthew Barney returned to his hometown of Richfield with his wife, Kirsten, and three children. The visibility of Matt at Richfield High School activities demonstrates his continued interest in the community and also his willingness to be available if there is a need for his skills. Extra time is spent with the family at the Fish Lake cabin, playing the guitar and personal exercise improvement.
Working at the outpatient clinic in Richfield, the Richfield Rehabilitation and Care Center, home health in Sevier and Wayne County gives Matt the opportunity to demonstrate his skills as a physical therapist. "I always make sure that the service provided is what needs to be there for continued progress. Research-based evidence supports the intervention that I choose to use with my patients. Working with communication helps me choose an avenue for the patient where therapy can be fun and I can modify the protocol and approach for a realization of gain and improvement."
