Dr. Jeffrey R. Guild, PT, DPT, (Former CSCS)
Dr. Jeffrey Guild, is a full time husband (Wife, Roya) and father of two young children, Eliana 3 years old and Ryan 2 years old. His family and human movement are his passion. He has dedicated his whole life to promoting wellness, researching and studying the human body and especially learning about the challenges of HUMAN MOVEMENT.
Jeffrey moved from Bettendorf, Iowa to Texas after graduating from the University of Iowa with a bachelor’s degree in Health Promotion (Minors in Integrative Physiology & Psychology). Jeffrey headed to Texas not only for the warmer climate and to find his wife, but to pursue his passion of health, further studying the human body and exercise. His first career in Texas was as a strength & conditioning professional. He worked with many clients with various physical and movement limitations and saw the impact exercise and changing their perception has on their life. He used his skills for individual training as well as teaching group exercise classes including Pilates in the water.
Jeffrey graduated with a Doctorate Degree in Physical Therapy at The University of North Texas Health Science Center in Fort Worth in 2013. He received the Dean’s research Award for the Allied Health Department and got published in multiple geriatric journals. Jeffrey’s passion has always been to provide his clients with solutions to be INDEPENDENT. His mission is to reach out and help as many people with physical and movement limitations who have been told over and over nothing can be done. He decided to start his practice in 2018 and called it Optimove. knowing OPTIMOVE IS NOT GOING TO BE JUST ANOTHER PHYSICAL THERAPY PRACTICE, BUT A PLACE WHERE PEOPLE’S LIVES WILL CHANGE FOREVER AND FOR BETTER.
When Jeffrey is not working and spending time with his family he enjoys music and exercise, playing guitar, conducting research & writing, and studying a variety of science subjects, history, business, and psychology via audio books.
Peter keeps our clients laughing, and the whole Optimove Team as well. Hand-picked by Jeffrey from their previous rehabilitation work, when he is not being “The Joint Whisperer” and making the seemingly impossible happen, Peter is MacGyvering up some gadget for our clients to help them move better.
Peter is originally from Rhode Island. He received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Rhode Island where his first career was as a ship captain, where he travelled the world and experienced many different cultures. Peter later developed a passion for physical therapy from his running career as a long distance runner doing marathons and ultramarathons. This led him to switch careers as he wanted to learn more about injury prevention and rehab. Peter has worked in various facilities over the last 8 years as a therapist throughout the metroplex including skilled nursing, outpatient orthopedics, and home health. He now enjoys working with our clients on various movement disorders, gait mechanics and balance issues. In his spare time Peter enjoys chopping wood and going for long trail runs with his family.
