Katie Aaron, PT, DPT, OCS, Clinic Director
Specialties: Doctorate Degree in Physical Therapy, Trigger Point Dry Needling Practitioner, Sports, Orthopedic and Running injuries
Treatment Philosophy: I have personally gone through a few surgeries, been out with overuse injuries, stitches and other things. I know how it can affect your lifestyle when the things you love to do are taken out. I take great pride in working together to find a treatment strategy/intervention (as there is never a one-size-fits-all model) for you that will help you get back to the reason we live in the great state of Colorado and everything you enjoy doing.
Education: I attended Colorado State University, Fort Collins where I studied Health and Exercise Science and graduated in 2010. Afterwords I attended Regis University in Denver to obtain my Doctorate in Physical therapy in 2013. Since then I have been specializing in sports medicine and worked to obtain my specialty in Orthopedic Physical therapy (OCS) in 2016.
For fun: Every weekend is spent mountain biking or trail running, skiing or snowboarding and any other fun adventures my boyfriend and I find for us and our two canine companions.

Stefan Riemens, PT, DPT
Specialties: Doctorate Degree in Physical Therapy
Treatment Philosophy: Manual therapy combined with targeted exercise encompasses the majority of my treatment style. Evidence-based practice remains my pursuit as I work together with patients of all ages in finding a plan of care that produces the greatest functional outcomes and results. In order to make incremental progress, we’ll work as a team to empower you to take control of your health and well-being on the road to recovery.
Education: I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Human Biology from the University of Montana – Missoula in 2016 and pursued my Doctorate in Physical Therapy at the University of Colorado – Anschutz Medical Campus immediately afterwards. I graduated in 2018 and hope to continue specializations in Orthopedic and Sports-related pathologies within the next three years. I will also be working on becoming a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist in the near future.
For Fun: I enjoy all the outdoor activity opportunities Denver and Colorado have to offer. That’s what makes it such a joy to live here. Hiking, biking, skiing, climbing, fishing, game nights with friends and weightlifting are all valuable pass-times on the weekends. A good brew or some red wine are always great additions to a non-fiction novel. It’s just about finding the work-life balance we all seek.
