Matthew Espanol

Meet Matthew

Matt Espanol is a San Francisco native whose passion in physical therapy is rooted in service to others. He originally grew up in the Excelsior district of San Francisco to Filipino immigrants. Deciding to stay local, Matt attended the University of San Francisco where he majored in physics before moving on to earn his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the Division of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy at the University of Southern California. 

While at USC, Matt sat on numerous boards where he helped to organize health fairs, symposiums, and workshops focused on assisting the underserved and educating the next generation of PT students. Upon graduation, the faculty selected Matt to the ACAPT National Honor Society and the Order of the Golden Cane, the highest honor that the Division can bestow. 

Before joining Agile, Matt completed a rotation with the UFC Performance Institute, working with pro athletes ranging from MMA fighters to Olympic boxers, as well as WNBA and NFL athletes. He continues to work with athletes, mainly in combat sports, strength sports, and bodybuilding. 

Matt believes in tailoring each and every session to the needs, wants, and realities of each patient’s life and goals, whether that be professional sports, office work, or picking up your grandchildren! Overall, he believes in utilizing skilled manual therapy as a supplement to strength training and improving overall physical fitness.

Aside from physical therapy, Matt is also a USA Weightlifting coach, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner. In his free time, Matt enjoys playing video games, cooking with his girlfriend, strength training, and watching the Trojans play football.
