Lifestyle Physical Therapy, LLC was founded by Dr. Matthew Seltzer, PT, DPT. After working in multiple physical therapy settings, honing his skills and recognizing inefficiencies, he realized there was a better way to provide affordable, patient-focused, high quality healthcare in a fun, friendly and non-intimidating environment. He created Lifestyle with this vision in mind. His mission is to deliver comprehensive healthcare services to patients of all ages and physical restrictions by utilizing a combination of the latest evidence based therapeutic techniques and modalities. We are an all-inclusive resource for rehabilitation, injury prevention and recovery, positive health maintenance, and general wellness.

At Lifestyle, our goal is to provide the highest possible patient-centered quality care with a strong commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction.
