Dr. Rhett Polka PT, DPT, OCS, CSCS
A Loveland native, Dr. Polka played multiple sports growing up, and experienced typical injuries. This sparked his interest in human performance and sports medicine.
Soon after earning his Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT), Rhett became disappointed with his profession. Rather than reaching for greatness and pushing the envelope, physical therapy had become stagnant and complacent. This brought him to a crossroads that eventually lead to the patented One80 System®.
After several years of experimentation, further education, applying science in the clinic and taking apart his thinking, Dr. Polka came up with a system that was designed to get results because it was the opposite of conventional PT. This evolution in practice is what allowed him to open One80 Physical Therapy®. Since 2005, One80 PT has grown into a multiple clinic model. Now The One80 System® is being taught to licensed medical professionals across the country.
As a former high school and collegiate athlete, Dr. Polka remains involved with sports by working with a variety of athletes including little leaguers, high school All Americans, Division I standouts, professional athletes and coaching high school football.
