our fabulous Optimal Therapy family
If you are unsure if Optimal is the right fit for you, ask for a fit check. You can come in and see our facility and speak with a therapist for 15 min to see if we are a good fit. The therapist can give you recommendations if we are not a good fit.
Although... After speaking with the therapist, most everyone feels good and wants to start treatment. We have a therapist and clinic to meet most every need. We are here to help you get to the next level. Whether it is getting you back after surgery, improving sports conditioning, wound care, or helping your baby stand and walk.
Dave Christensen is one of our Doctors of Physical Therapy and our Clinical/Leadership Development Director. Dave grew up on a potato farm in Southern Idaho and learned the value of physical therapy at a young age after being injured several times including broken bones, muscle strains, and knee surgery. Because of his time dealing with injuries and several bouts of rehab, Dave is able to empathize with his patients and provide some unique insight. Dave values training and education and not only has many certifications himself, but also facilitates several contracts with surrounding colleges and universities to provide clinical educational opportunities to future therapists.
“ Dave Christensen was the first therapist we hired. A couple of years after we started, I started calling Dave to see if he'd come down and check out Pahrump. When he finished school he came down and we were able to convince him to come and join our small team. At that time we had one from desk technician and a PTA. Dave is very personable and relates well with people. Dave's current position as a regional manager has many roles one of them is being a teammate advocate. He always brings a positive light-hearted full of fun attitude. I've enjoyed working with Dave for many years and hope to continue that from many more. „
