Creighton received his Bachelors degree in Exercise, Nutrition, and Health Sciences from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in May 2013. He then returned to his home state of South Dakota and attended the University of South Dakota for his Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree, receiving his degree in May 2020.

Creighton has experience with most orthopedic conditions throughout the body. He is comfortable with the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, ankle, and spine regions. He also has experience with neurological conditions and overall balance dysfunction. Throughout his clinical internships, Creighton served a variety of age ranges from young athletes to elderly population. Creighton addresses each case with a multi-faceted approach, using all of the tools a PT has to offer including therapeutic exercise, manual therapy, modalities, and pain science education.
Creighton believes in individualized treatment, addressing each patient’s specific problems and goals and having detailed purpose behind each intervention. He strongly believes in evidence-based practice, utilizing the most recent research and knowledge available to drive his plans. He recognizes that psychology and emotional health can play a large role in rehab, and will do anything he can to help his patients succeed during recovery. Overall, Creighton wants to return every patient to optimal function and best quality of life, focusing on the long-term picture.
Creighton recently moved here from South Dakota with his girlfriend, after meeting in doctorate school. He has loved his time here in Colorado so far, a major upgrade in scenery. In his free time, he loves exploring the outdoors whether it’s hiking, camping, or scenic drives. His favorite sports to play are golf and basketball, appreciating that golf is possible during winters here. He wants to return to snowboarding, as he feels like it is a requirement to do winter sports as a CO resident.
