Rocky Escajadillo

Fascinated with human movement and anatomy, Rocky Escajadillo (aka Rock The Muscle Doc) inherently knew pursuing a career in Physical Therapy was his destiny.  Consistently competing on the baseball diamond and in the classroom landed him a scholarship to Christian Brothers University in his soulful, southern hometown of Memphis, TN. Once his collegiate academic and athletic career were complete, Rocky went on to pursue his Doctorate of Physical Therapy at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. Graduating in 2012, Rocky began his career in an outpatient orthopedic clinic where he made it his mission to get his hands on every patient he encountered on a daily basis. This drive for one-on-one quality care ultimately led to him attaining his Certification in Dry Needling in 2014. He prides himself on providing an optimal patient experience for the population he serves. Rocky seeks to discover “What really matters most?” for his clients as they pursue their journey to maximize physical health and wellness. His goals are to “Educate and Empower” his community with exceptional service.


Rocky is Dry Needling Certified and enjoys helping athletes improve and expedite recovery!


He and his wife Buffy (also a Physical Therapist) moved to Erie in August 2015 to be closer to family. They have a daughter, Emelia, and a newborn son, Gabriel. Rocky enjoys spending time with his family, working out, playing Frisbee Golf, and walking his dog Dottie Lou.
