Matt Carpenter PT, DPT

Doctor of Physical Therapy


My first introduction to physical therapy came as the kid who found a way to get injured during every sport and activity imaginable. My experience as a patient and the atmosphere inspired my young mind and started me on the path to becoming a PT. My love for physical therapy comes from seeing the results from hard work a patient puts in. From the athlete, the weekend warrior to those transitioning from the sedentary lifestyle to the active one; they’re all rewarding. The whole process of physical therapy is like a Jedi master guiding his padawan through the journey of getting a person back to what they love to do without being limited by their body or their mind. Getting a person on the right path, guiding them to success and empowering a person to reach their goals is the joy of being a physical therapist.

Everyday is a chance to be better than you were yesterday and that is a mentality I bring to being a PT. I’ve had the wonderful experience of being a PT student at both the Medford and Mount Laurel Breakthru locations and have had three clinical experiences in the orthopedic fields.

The best PT place ever. Everyone is so friendly and they are so flexible. Matt was wonderful. I wouldn't recommend anywhere else.

Jon is AWESOME! I have been to breakthru for my knee in 2019 and knew exactly where I needed to go after I had ankle surgery. The Breakthru staff is seriously the best and really care about your treatment plan. I recommend this location to everyone I know because it’s that great.

Today was my last day of PT. It’s been two months of physical therapy and I’m so happy with the results. Matt & Russ have given me the upmost attention and challenge me at times to achieve my goals. They are knowledgeable, professional and personable. I highly recommend this facility for physical therapy.
