History of King Physical Therapy & Fitness

King Physical Therapy & Fitness was founded by Mark and Debbie King and opened its doors for business in September 2000, Mark earned his Master of Physical Therapy degree from Baylor University in 1986. He then served as a physical therapist in the United States Army for the next 4 years. After being honorably discharged from the Army, Mark worked in private practice for 11 years. He continued his physical therapy education at Baylor University by earning a Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2009.

Debbie also had a background in the medical field as a registered nurse. With their shared talents, business savvy, and desire to help members of their community recover from injuries and regain their quality of life, they decided to open their first office in their hometown of Connellsville, PA.

Mark and Debbie expanded their business in 2006 by opening a second office in Scottdale, PA.  In 2007, the business became more of a family affair when their son Matthew joined the practice as a physical therapist and the clinical director of the Scottdale location.

Their daughter Emily began working for the practice in 2008 as in-house legal counsel and billing assistant. Mark and Debbie's youngest son Jarrod joined the business in 2013 as a physical therapist at the Connellsville office. After building a solid and reputable business, Mark and Debbie retired in December 2020. Emily, Matthew, and Jarrod are now carrying on their parents' vision, which is 21 years old and still going strong.
