Dr. Matt Paluchniak attended Concordia University Wisconsin, earning his Bachelor of Science degree in Athletic Training in 2012 and then his Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2015. During his time at Concordia, he had the chance to compete and work clinically with college athletes. Matt played all four years of his undergraduate studies on the Men’s Basketball team and was named co-captain for his last two seasons. While in school, he was able to work with many of the Concordia athletic teams and several area high school teams in an athletic training role.

After graduate school, Matt pursued additional professional education and training to become a Board Certified Orthopedic Specialist through an extensive 18-month physical therapy Orthopedic Residency program with Evidence in Motion. Through this program, Matt was able to hone his manual therapy skills and clinical decision making to help his clients at the highest level. Placing a high value on evidence-based practice, hands-on manual techniques and prescribed exercise, Matt has pursued additional training and education through several specialized courses to advance his skills, including dry needling.

When he's not in the clinic, Matt enjoys doing CrossFit with his wife, Sam, and spending time with their sons, Cal and Griffin.

“I love working with an active population that desires to get more out of their body. I work with clients to find out what their body needs and then push them to find out how they can excel even more.”
