Payden Houser, DPT, CSCS, is a physical therapist and strength and conditioning specialist based in New Canaan. He has been practicing since 2015 in the outpatient orthopedic and home health settings, focused on helping clients achieve their goal of living a healthy and meaningful life. Payden has a passion for working with athletes of all ages, especially those participating in outdoor sports like rock climbers, skiers, and runners.
Like many physical therapists, Payden was originally drawn toward this career path through sports. While playing college baseball, he spent mornings in the athletic training room and became fascinated by how the body is able to heal — and how a collaborative team effort makes all the difference in rehabilitation.
As a physical therapist, Payden feels his most important role is to educate and advocate for his clients on how to best live a healthy and fulfilling life, and that he is tasked with keeping his knowledge and skills sharp to best serve his community.
Payden is a self-proclaimed coffee snob; when he is not drinking coffee, you can find him hiking, skiing, rock climbing and trail running.
