Matt Swift, PT,DPT
Owner, Doctor of Physical Therapy

Matt received his two bachelors of science degrees in Athletic Training and Exercise Sports Science from Vanguard University in 2002. He continued his education at Chapman University, receiving his Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2006. While at Vanguard University Matt played four years on the Men’s Soccer team. During that time he was awarded NAIA Scholar Athlete, and was awarded Vanguard’s first Champion of Character Award.

In 2009 Matt founded Change Sports Physical Therapy in Anaheim, CA. For two years, Matt worked closely with the USA Men’s and Women’s National Indoor Volleyball teams. During his time working with the teams, he performed pre-season screenings, treated injured athletes, and helped cover practices at the Anaheim facility.

In 2011 Matt moved his practice to Huntington Beach, CA to be closer to home and involved in the community. Since that time, he has enjoyed meeting and working with hundreds of people in the community. In 2021 Change Sports PT moved to a new larger space in the same shopping center it had been in for 10 years.

Matt has also coached soccer for over a decade, during which he has worked with several kids in developing their athletic abilities. He also is a parent of four boys and one girl, so he understands youth sports from the perspective of a parent, coach, player and a health care professional. All of this history has given Matt a unique perspective on the health and development of young athletes.

Matt lives in Orange County with his wife and 5 children. He is also very involved in the community, coaching AYSO soccer and serving as Executive Pastor at Father’s House OC. Him and his family are also foster parents, and continue to provide care for kids in need of a home.

Matt has been involved in several sports physical therapy settings outside of the clinic:

  • Volunteer Physical Therapist AVP So Cal Tour 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019
  • Physical Therapy Provider for USA Volleyball 2009-2010
  • Marina High School Athletics
  • The HBC Volleyball Club Official PT Provider 2011
  • Advantage Tennis Academy, Irvine
