Manual Therapy

Manual therapy is a hands on approach to joint and soft tissue dysfunction for complete restoration of function and pain relief.


Real Time Ultrasound Imaging (RTUI)

Real time ultrasound imaging allows you to see the deepest core muscles while training “motor control”.


Intramuscular Manual Therapy (Trigger Point Dry Needling or TDN)

TDN is a very effective technique for the treatment of myofascial pain and dysfunction. The approach is based on Western anatomical and neurophysiological principles.


Post-Operative Rehabilitation

From neck to ankle surgery and everything in between, Kinetic Energy has you covered.



The Kinesio Taping Method is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process, while allowing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion.


MLS C4 Cold Laser

Laser therapy uses light to favor and accelerate the body’s natural healing processes. The light energy enters the damaged cells and stimulates inter-cellular activity which reduces pain in the area and speeds recovery of the damaged cells.


Complimentary Injury Screen

Our free injury screen is a 15 minute consultation designed to shed light on your injury and provide suggestions on how it would be best addressed.


Complimentary Pre-Op Program

Having surgery can be a daunting experience but we can help you through the process to ensure that your experience is as smooth as possible.

  • I had been to three physical therapist offices in Steamboat. Not until Kinetic Energy was I helped. Nicole listened to me, cared for me, and treated me with respect and compassion. She took the time to listen. Her skill as a physical therapist coupled with her patience and compassion helped find the root issue. Her steadfastness gave me the time to heal. I know of no one with so much wisdom, patience, kindness and skill. She took the time She is one rare find. Kinetic Energy is PT at its finest!

  • After suffering from plantar fasciitis pain for years, I went to Kinetic Energy PT and received treatment with a series of Cold Laser sessions and home exercises. My pain gradually diminished and I have been pain free since. Shortly afterwards, I was able to run the marathon I had my heart set on. Thanks!!

  • Nicole is the very best physical therapist I have ever experienced. I have been a patient of Nicole's several times - the first time at my doctors suggestion and thereafter at my insistence. She is efficient, extremely knowledgeable and she does not try to keep in therapy beyond the reasonable recovery term. Her fees are at or below market and I highly recommend her to all in our region.

  • The PT's at Kinetic Energy all know how to heal bodies. They are highly trained and educated.

    What makes Kinetic energy different is they care about the person. You are treated as an individual and you meet with the physical therapist one on one. No matter what your need – at Kinetic energy you are treated with respect and kindness. It is a place of encouragement and a place to heal from whatever ails you.

    They go beyond the injury and pain and treat the whole person. At KE there is a unique environment where you are able to heal your pain and be cared for as an individual.

  • “Choosing a physical therapist had been easy as Nicole has helped me successfully in the past and was highly recommended by my surgeon and friends. Nicole formulated an individualized program for me, the gentle exercises and her healing hands working on my spine and muscles brought greater relief each visit. Her one on one approach is phenomenal. The morning I stepped out of bed with no sciatic pain seemed like a miracle as I had been told for years that nothing would help me. A month out of therapy I continue to be pain free and can hardly believe that I feel so well and have my life back. I wholeheartedly recommend Kinetic Energy PT “

    - Corrine Bennington, Steamboat Springs, CO
  • "I have had a lot of experience with physical therapists. At Kinetic Energy PT I received a lot more individual personal attention than from others in town. More importantly, I thought Ray Degli DPT did more than others to identify and diagnose my specific and perhaps unique issues and went beyond textbook protocols to bring imagination and creativity to my treatment. I could not be more pleased. "

    - Richard "Dick" Tonnesen, Steamboat Springs, CO


  • Does my insurance cover physical therapy?

    Insurance coverage for physical therapy varies widely by carrier. We will verify your benefits and coverage at your first visit.
    HOWEVER, we strongly urge you to verify this information for yourself, to avoid any confusion.

  • How do I pay my co-pay?

    Co-pays are due at the time of your appointment. We can take cash, personal check, Visa and MasterCard for your payment.

  • I don’t have insurance or don’t want to use my insurance; can I pay cash for my treatment?

    Yes, we offer a “cash-pay” rate for treatment. Ask front desk personnel for current rates.

  • How long will my appointment take?

    The short answer is that it depends! In general, appointments last from 45 to 60 minutes. At your first appointment, expect 10-15 minutes to complete intake paperwork.

  • What should I expect at my first appointment?

    You will be asked to complete intake paperwork that generally takes 10-15 minutes.
    After you have completed your paperwork, you will meet your physical therapist. The therapist will talk with you about your concerns and then complete a physical examination.
    After the examination, you and your therapist will discuss how best to begin treatment.

  • Can I email or text my physical therapist or the front desk?

    Yes! However, it is important to understand that plain texting and email are not secure.
    There are secure text apps that allow you to communicate with your therapist securely. Talk with your therapist about using one of these apps.

  • Do you offer exercise classes after my physical therapy is complete?

    Yes! We offer several different classes at Kinetic Energy.
    See our current class schedule.
