Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation
Taos Sports & Physical Medicine provides a full service physical therapy clinic to Northern New Mexico, with a specialty in Orthopedic and Sports Medicine. We are located conveniently across from the hospital, with beautiful views of Taos Mountain. The clinic has grown over the years, expanding its service to include satellite offices in Angel Fire and at the North Side Health and Fitness Center. It also has a long term contract with the Family and Youth Center to use the only warm water rehabilitation pool in the area. We now offer extended hours to accommodate our working population; Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
We have a licensed professional staff of six physical therapists.
We offer specialized services including:
- women’s health
- spinal manipulation
- the Bowen Technique for pain, and
- functional capacity evaluations.
We provide care for orthopedic surgical rehabilitation, sports injury, back and neck pain, as well as osteoarthritis. The physical therapists use all traditional PT modalities but have a strong belief in the benefits of manual therapy using myofascial release, joint mobilization, and muscle energy techniques to enhance rehabilitation.
The staff also includes PT technicians to assist in care and a helpful and friendly office staff to set up appointments, check insurance benefits and answer billing questions.
Taos Sports & Physical Medicine contracts with most major insurance companies. Call (575) 737-0304 to make an appointment. Physical therapy does require a physician’s referral.

Dr. Matthew Harrison
Physiatrist Matthew Harrison, MD, board certified in Sports and Physical Medicine, provides non-surgical treatments of bone, joint, nerve, and muscle conditions and concerns.
He offers diagnostic work ups for:
Back and Neck Pain
Sports and Occupational Injuries
Now electrodiagnostics and nerve conduction studies are available. These nerve tests check to see if nerves and muscles are working right. They are used to check for nerve damage, to test for conditions affecting the nervous system, or to check for 'trapped' nerves - conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
If you have unexplained numbness, tingling, or weakness in your hands or neck, a consultation to assess problems such as pinched nerves or disease of the nerve and muscles can be done by Dr. Harrison.
Using a holistic approach to healing by looking at the entire person, Dr. Harrison works to restore maximum function to your life. Physiatry is not just for athletes or people with chronic pain – its for folks who want to stay active and live life at an optimal level of well-being.
