About Optimove Physical Therapy & Wellness

We Are A Premium Mobile Therapy Practice In The Dallas/Fort Worth Area That Specializes In Human Movement Challenges

At Optimove Physical Therapy & Wellness we love to empower people in their 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, & 90’s get back to living a physically healthy life and doing the things they love to do.

We thrive on recognizing the true challenges along the journey of getting back to independently getting out in the community without fear, playing with grandchildren, going out to lunch and catching up with children, traveling without worry, or maybe just being able to get around the house or community without fear of falling…                  

or maybe you have a parent(s) who you see declining and your don’t know what to do. We are here to serve you too and provide answers and solutions.

When something like balance problems, unsteadiness, dizziness, or loss of strength in the legs strikes your life – we know it’s very tempting to just accept it’s “just a part of age”… but that’s usually not the case, and often the consequences of inaction can be devastating. These are real problems, with SPECIFIC CAUSES, and there ARE SOLUTIONS. We specialize in figuring out what the ROOT cause of these problems are and work with you and your family and support team to find solutions to these problems.

Or, maybe you’re left feeling confused, even sceptical because you’ve sought advice from other healthcare professionals, or Physical Therapist in the past, and nothing they seemed to say or do helped. You sought help from the largest most prestigious institutions and research facilities in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, and nobody could seem to help you.

Can you relate?

If that sounds like you, you’re not alone. At Optimove Physical Therapy & Wellness, we hear this all the time… In fact people who come to see us have often:

  • Seen several different specialists, only to be told  “IT COMES WITH AGE”   “BE CAREFUL!”   “DON’T FALL!”   “Drink More Water”   “Take These Pills” then months go by and you find your independence with mobility getting worse and even your world getting smaller.
  • Waited on ANOTHER medical test (After all the other tests gave no solutions), all to find the next medical test did not give any REAL solutions either.
  • Waited to find a solution to their unsteadiness, mobility, and/or dizziness problems because of a painful back or knees, but all that did was make the area even more stiff and tight, and mobility, balance and/or dizziness got worse.
  • Went to physical therapy for a while, but right when you felt like you were making some progress you were told that your results were “good enough” and you could not continue.
  • Waited to go to outpatient physical therapy at a large hospital institution that was difficult to simply get to and find, and spent your entire day of energy and time.
  • Been put on a month-long waiting list to get in to see a doctor which resulted in no further progress to finding solutions.
  • Waited for the weeks and weeks and approval process of home health… all to then do not much be kick your legs forward and back in a chair while the home health therapist had their face barried in the computer most of the time (Not their fault. The system is broken).
  • Been to physical therapy in the past but were given general balance exercises or even several sheets of exercises, which did nothing but to cause you to feel overwhelmed and frustrated.

Any of those sound familiar?

The fact that you’ve tried any or all of these things already, like many people we see, is actually a GOOD THING because when you know what doesn’t work – you are closer to finding the thing that does!

If any of these have happened to you – we would love to help you by inviting you to book a call to talk with one of our Physical Therapists who are centralized in Dallas. We are mobile all over Dallas/Fort Worth, which means WE COME TO SEE YOU in the COMFORT OF YOUR OWN HOME or wherever you prefer we see you.

Founded by Dr. Jeffrey Guild, Physical Therapist

Optimove Physical Therapy & Wellness was founded by Dr. Jeffrey Guild, Physical Therapist. Dr. Guild has been working with people with movement problems for decades as a strength and conditioning specialist and neurological specialist. His specialty in balance and dizziness will provide you a true in-depth understanding and solution to any balance and/or dizziness problems. 

Dr. Guild has been empowering people just like you for years who want to keep active, independent, and continue to live their life without assistance from others (If possible), avoid going to a nursing home, or empowering families with their loved ones if they are in a nursing home. That’s right, we go to nursing homes and memory care facilities to empower people to be as active as possible. WE DO THIS EVERY DAY!

We believe people aged 50+, no matter their challenges or diagnosis, should have exceptionally better access to great care to help them stay active, independent, and enjoy life.

If you would like to know how the Physical Therapy team at Optimove Physical Therapy & Wellness can help you live a better quality life and get back to doing the things you want to do without fear or limitations – we invite you to start with a completely free, no-obligation, risk free appointment in the comfort of your own home. Click the “Free Discovery Visit” button at the top of the page to get started or simply call us at (214) 712-8242.

Note: This Free Discovery Visit is something that we offer to people so they can get more information face-to-face with us, in-person, so you know who your team is. Maybe you are unsure of the benefits we can provide for you, or if it is right for you. Maybe you would like to invite your children or spouse to help you decide if this is right for you. We understand you may have been let down in the past, so we want you to have as much information as you can without any cost or obligation before you commit to anything. If that sounds like you, then please start with a Free Discovery Visit that we can work with you to find out what is wrong and what can be done – without any financial risk on your part.

We Love To Empower People:

  • Keep Active– so you can continue to be independent in the community, play with your grandchildren, go out to dinner so you can catch up with your children with ease and enjoyment, or maybe even get back to playing golf, walking, or working out if that’s what you enjoy.
  • Find Out What’s Wrong– we’ll help give you peace of mind and ensure that we are focused together to find the root cause of the problem – and we will provide you with specific and customized solutions to your problem for as fast improvement as possible.
  • Get More Enjoyment Out of Life– so you can enjoy quality time with family and friends without fear of falling and the confidence to be free to walk like you did years ago (This is not an exaggeration. We see this every day).
  • Avoid Needing To Move To A Nursing Home – we will provide you an individualized plan to focus on keeping you living in your own home for as long as possible. We all know the benefits of continuing to live at home and the down-side to moving to a nursing home, so that is our focus with many of our clients.

Basically, we love to empower people get back to living life free from mobility problems, fear of falling, canes and walkers, dizziness, and nursing homes. 

Who We Serve

Our clients are independent-minded individuals who strive to to be able to take life head-on, but their physical limitations may interfere with being able to do that the way they want. Or… some physical problems may be creeping up slowly, and they want to get ahead of the problem.

We know the importance of moving easily without the need to worry or holding back from engaging with life. If the body is not working correctly, the mood and psychology of the person changes. We have all been there for one reason or another.

Many of our clients have been to physical therapy, made some progress, but did not achieve the life-impacting results they were hoping for. Now they are left with not knowing where to turn to get better. 

Others have been diagnosed with a specific neurological disorder such as multiple sclerosis, but feel they have not found the place that truly knows how to work with them as an individual to empower them to move better.

BEGINNINGS

The seed of Optimove Physical Therapy & Wellness began with the recognition of the up-coming FALLING EPIDEMIC that would creep up on us in the United States. The baby-boomers would be getting older. What kind of problems would FALLING put on the healthcare system and the victims directly suffering? It was time to act! I even wrote my undergraduate thesis on the topic, “Training for leg power to prevent falls.” (Power meaning… standing up from a chair quickly instead of slowly).

TRANSITION

As a Physical Therapy student, I was introduced to the world of VESTIBULAR REHABILLITATION (Specialized in helping people suffering with dizziness and/or vertigo). THIS WAS THE MISSING LINK TO FIGHT FALLING!

Vestibular as a specialty is rare in healthcare, which is one of the reasons so many people suffer with dizziness and balance problems for so long. I dedicated my first full year out of Physical Therapy school to receiving mentoring and studying this specialty. We worked with dizziness, vertigo, and balance problems every day, and got sent the most rare cases from all over Dallas/Fort Worth.

The next several years were dedicated to working with people with neurological disorders in many settings including hospitals, nursing homes, and outpatient clinics.  Like many healthcare providers, I grew increasingly frustrated with the healthcare system and how it was no longer serving the patients. THERE HAD TO BE A BETTER WAY! It was time to find that better way to serve patients and fight against the up-coming epidemic of FALLING.

OPTIMOVE IS FORMED

This vision for Optimove started as a mobile service, recognizing the need to go to our clients and work in their homes. We work as a team, utilizing the strengths from each therapist to find the ROOT CAUSE of our clients’ problems. From there we develop individualized solutions to empower our clients to maintain a physically healthy life and provide peace of mind along their journey of independence.

The individualized plans developed WITH OUR CLIENTS are designed to empower our clients to get back to what is important to them. We are RELENTLESS in our pursuit to get our clients back to what they want to do. Many of our clients want to avoid going to a nursing home, get back to playing with grandchildren, go out into the community without fear of falling, get rid of canes and walkers, moving more independently while living in memory care or assisted living, and improving balance and getting rid of dizziness to get back to living life again.

We find when our clients commit to their plan, they achieve new levels of independence they have not seen in months or even years. They are able to get out freely in the community, avoid nursing homes, avoid falls, get rid of dizziness and balance problems, and expand their world again because they can go more places again and live their life again!
