Dr. Kyle Coffey, PT, DPT is a licensed physical therapist and performance coach. He has been practicing physical therapy in an orthopedic and sports medicine realm for nearly a decade. Kyle has worked with clients of all ages and goals including youth, high school, and collegiate athletes, as well as general population clients looking to reduce their pain and improve their function and movement performance.
Dr. Coffey received both his undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Massachusetts Lowell. His undergraduate degree is a B.S. in Exercise Physiology with a minor in Nutrition and his graduate degree is a clinical Doctorate of Physical Therapy. He is an active member of both the national and NH state chapter of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), Orthopedic section of the APTA, as well as the National and New England Chapters of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). He was recently elected as Massachusetts State Representative for 3 years to NEACSM.
Dr. Coffey started Motus Physical Therapy and Performance in August 2016 to serve the patient, not the insurance company. He is also full-time Lecturer and Exercise Physiology Program Director at his alma mater, UMass Lowell, in the Department of Physical Therapy. He teaches undergraduate Exercise Physiology lecture and laboratory courses. His research interests include the role of physical activity in memory, cognition, and academic achievement particularly in the elementary through high school population. Most of all, he enjoys spending time with the students discussing their personal and professional goals.
Dr. Coffey’s evaluative process is systems based and acts as an funnel to help identify the root cause of your symptoms and movement dysfunctions. He is very eclectic in the approach he takes and looks to find what works best for the patient. Kyle utilizes evidence and experience guided techniques to help improve a client or patient’s functional status as quickly and efficiently as possible. Most importantly, he believes that that patient benefits most from physical therapy and strength and conditioning when both the therapist and the patient are active participants in the treatment process. His ultimate goal is not to keep you coming to sessions forever but provide patients with the tools to self-manage their symptoms long-term.
Dr. Coffey is always learning within and outside the clinic. He has gained significant experience and advanced manual therapy training for the shoulder, knee, hip, ankle, and spine. He is constantly attending continuing education courses throughout the year to advance his knowledge.
