Evergreen Sport & Spine Physical Therapy (EVSSPT) opened its doors in 1996, in Evergreen, by Kimberly Kaiser, PT. 20 years later and more than 3 decades of practicing physical therapy Kim and her staff have landed in Conifer, Colorado. This clinic continues to serve a wonderful population of mountain loving clients from Conifer, Bailey, Evergreen, Morrison and surrounding foothill communities. From the moment Kim started her practice she knew that her patients were motivated and committed to getting better and getting back to life. Our patients believe that with the right care, anything is possible. With such great attitude from the patients Kim set out to build a staff, both physical therapists and office, that were willing to provide top notch, one-on-one care with each patient, and would take the time to listen to the patients concerns and provide a successful outcome. To provide such care means staying on top of the latest techniques through ongoing education. All EVSSPT physical therapists have a minimum of 10 years experience and most more than 20 years. Armed with this knowledge, experience and personalized care our patients at EVSSPT achieve great results.
Over the past 20 years our patients have become our biggest referral source along with the medical community in Conifer, Evergreen, and the surrounding areas. The EVSSPT staff is there to help you along your rehabilitation journey and together we will work to achieve your goals. The front desk staff will work to schedule your appointments, assist you in navigating your insurance benefits, and along with the physical therapists are committed to making sure you get the most out of your care.
