McKay Murdock, PT, DPT, OCS

I believe that excellent physical therapy helps you heal from injury and learn to trust your body again. With a decade of experience and board certification in orthopedics, I offer highly personalized, hands-on treatment to get you back to feeling like yourself again. I love pushing my patients hard and watching them get stronger than they thought was even possible. In the heart of downtown SLC, I enjoy helping hikers, skiers, cyclists, runners and more get back to doing what they love most. Let’s embark on a journey together — not just healing, but strengthening and redefining possibilities. Step into a fun and inviting atmosphere where your well-being is the focus, and let's achieve new heights together.

My professional interest in physical therapy began after watching my dad struggle with years of back pain when I was growing up. Multiple times per year, he would have a major episode of low-back pain that would result in him missing work and being bed ridden for days. After failing to find relief from medications, injections, and other pain management interventions, he felt as though he was at the end of the road. Then, thanks to the guidance and friendship of a physical therapist, he was empowered to heal from the inside out. This relationship proved to be the difference maker for my dad, assisting him in a full return to work and to his favorite hobbies of riding snowmobiles, horses, and keeping up with his grandkids. I completed my undergraduate studies in exercise science at Utah Valley University and subsequently received my doctorate degree in Provo from Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions in 2015. Since graduation, I’ve been regularly involved in ongoing training and specialization to ensure I can offer the most current and cutting edge treatments for my patients.

I'm happy to call Salt Lake City home with my wife and two children. In my free time I enjoy the outdoors, weight training, and spending time with my family.
