Joseph Patton, PT

Patton graduated from the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in 1988. After managing a large physical therapy practice over 7 states, he decided to open this practice in 2003. His focus on manual skills combined with therapeutic exercise prescription has given him a reputation for helping many patients who had no success with other practitioners. He specializes in the treatment of orthopedic injuries and aggressively pursues continuing education in the areas of manual therapy, neuromuscular re-education, biomechanics, and exercise. He specifically has done extensive coursework under the direction of Stanley Paris, Ph.D., P.T. and Gregory Johnson, PT, FFCFMT. Joe is also a private pilot and enjoys golf, camping, and scuba diving.

Rachael Britton, PT, DPT

Her philosophy is that providing good care begins with listening to the patient. She bases treatment on the presentation of symptoms along with her clinical knowledge and the latest research. She uses hands-on manual treatments along with exercise to re-train her clients system to move efficiently. She has a background in Pilates and massage therapy, and training from the Institute of Physical Art, which uses an integrative approach to not only get you moving more efficiently while in the clinic, but also to keep you moving that way on your own in the future. My formal training was from the University of Colorado-Denver, where I earned my Doctorate in Physical Therapy. In my free time, I enjoy doing anything outdoors, especially playing tennis, snowboarding, and running, and also travelling.

Carrie Mitzel

Carrie graduated from Metropolitan State University of Denver with a BS in Business Management. She joined Lone Tree Physical Therapy in 2012, and enjoys making sure that each patient feels taken care of and valued. When she’s not ensuring that the clinic is running smoothly, you can find her spending time with her husband and son, camping, hiking, sewing and crafting.

Raised in Alaska, Tal enjoys the outdoors: snowboarding, hiking, and everything Colorado has to offer.
