Ashlea Lytle is a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) who has been practicing for over a decade in the Denver Metro area. She treated for several years in orthopedic injuries and post operative surgeries, before specializing in pelvic health physical therapy. She works at Activcore in Denver, Colorado, located just a mile from the popular Cherry Creek Shopping District.
Ashlea graduated from the University of Kansas with a Bachelors in Sport Science and from the University of Kansas Medical Center with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy — ranked among the top 30 physical therapy schools in the country. While in college, she was on the Kansas Women's Rowing Team where she fell in love with the idea of becoming a physical therapist.
Not only does Ashlea have a background in treating orthopedic and adult pelvic floor issues, but she also provides exceptional evidenced-based treatments for pediatric pelvic floor dysfunctions. Common dysfunctions include urinary incontinence, constipation, and abdominal pain. Ashlea believes most children who have pelvic floor dysfunctions can have their symptoms abolished or greatly improved with pediatric physical therapy. Treating pediatric clients has been near and dear to Ashlea’s heart as there are not very many physical therapists who specialize in pediatric pelvic floor.
Besides working at Activcore, Ashlea lives an active lifestyle and enjoys hiking, running, playing volleyball, snowboarding, weight training, yoga and most of all spending time with her husband and newborn son.

I have been suffering from right and left flank pain for over three years! After trying multiple specialists and remedies to help relieve my pain, I still had no relief. My GI recommended I give Activcore a try for not only my flank pain, but also for my GERD from which I had been suffering from a pretty intense flare up.
I began my physical therapy with Ashlea Lytle at Activcore in April of 2019. The appointments went well. The front desk was especially friendly and Ashlea was very informative and easy to talk to. Ashlea was determined to figure out what the heck was causing my flank pain. She was extremely thorough. After multiple dry needling sessions, exercises, diet changes, performance therapy, stretches, and pelvic work, I finally started to feel some relief in with both my flank pain and my GERD flare up. I went from pain all day EVERY SINGLE DAY, to pain once a month for only a few days.
When I started with Ashlea, I was also currently training for three triathlons. I had multiple goals, not only for my health, but for my races as well. I was able to meet my goals, plus some. I was finally able to train without pain, both during and after my workouts. That was huge for me. We worked on strengthening during the performance therapy sessions to help with both my health goals and triathlon goals. My second triathlon on August 3rd, 2019, was especially important, as I was racing to bring awareness and end breast and ovarian cancer. During the race, I felt fantastic and reached my goal by making top 10, which is considered elite and was also 1st in my division. Oh, and I had zero pain!
I am so thankful that my GI recommended Activcore and I had Ashlea Lytle as my Physical Therapist. I not only feel better, but I have learned so much more about my body because of Ashlea. I will continue to use all the exercises and stretches I learned throughout my time at Activcore.
I slipped a disc in my back while on a bike ride and my husband rushed back to get the car while I waited in agony at the park. This happened several times before… even unloading a dishwasher… and I was tired of the recurring issues. Ashlea helped me tremendously—we worked on the Red Cord and she gave me excellent instruction and home exercises that have helped prevent any further problems. Now I am feeling my absolute best. I’m so happy to know how to prevent this, and to be active on the bike again without fear of flare ups!
My doctor referred me to Activcore for some retraining which has progressed very well and while getting the retraining therapy I asked my therapist, Ashlea Lytle, if she could help with a severe pain on the outer part of my right leg near my hip (Bursitis). Ashlea treated me and the pain I've consistently had for over 6 years has improved so much I can now sleep on my right side with no pain.
I'm so grateful to Ashlea for successfully treating my initial problem and fixing one that I thought I would just have to live with. Thank you Ashlea Lytle so much and I would recommend you to all in need.
