"Throughout my career as a college volleyball player, I played and lived through pain and discomfort in my shoulder. After treatment with various physical therapists, I finally got to see Keith at ORPT after undergoing shoulder surgery. My recovery with Keith was by far the best physical therapy experience I have had.
Keith takes the time to find a treatment that best fits you. He teaches you how and why each treatment is performed and you get to see the results! My last PT treatment was 5 months ago and I remain pain free because of the great home program Keith put together for me.
If I ever need PT again, I'm coming to see you!"
"Physical therapy with ORPT has taught me so many things: I don't have to live with pain and I have the power to make it go away; movement is my friend; old habits can be altered and that treating my body and mind holistically will result in greater positive change. This process has been more than I ever imagined or expected from PT. I feel more hopeful and confident that I have the tools to sustain the changes I have made with Keith as well as to explore more. Thanks for the start on this journey. Bren is also the best."

"When I first came in, I was having trouble with my back doing normal household things such as laundry and lifting heavier things. It also effected my exercise because running and dancing made it worse. After therapy, now if I practice specific stretches and exercise regularly I don't have a problem. I just started running again and I do not have back pain."
"Before coming to ORPT I was in the worst pain I had ever felt! I have thrown my back out before but this time I was completely immobile. After 8 days of urgent care doctors and medicine, upon the referral of my father-in-law, I came to see Keith. That very day I was able to move from a pain scale of 8-9 to a 4 or 5. Inside a week I was smiling and active again! Am now 110% functioning with daily grind. Now knowing the tools to keep my back healthy, I have been touting his praises to anyone who will listen. Thanks to Eric too."
"After years of low back pain and lack of range of motion in my hips and lower back I decided to give the McKenzie method a shot. I had tried chiropractic, acupressure, acupuncture, you name it and no relief. A buddy of mine turned me on to Keith and the McKenzie Method and my back and hips have been pain free. My range of motion is back for the first time in years. I cannot tell you in words how lucky I feel to have been referred to Keith. My thanks to Keith and staff for a guide and full recovery."
"My results were far and above my wildest dreams! I came to ORPT referred by my sister. She was receiving therapy from Keith and was very excited about her results so I came to Optimal Results with hope and excitement of my own possibilities. I was mentally so ready to get better. I have RSD, now called CRPS, in my foot and lower leg. 2 and a half years of extreme pain, 1 year on crutches because I could not put any pressure on my foot, 5 surgeries and approximately 45 nerve block procedures to try and dull the pain. My pain level stayed between 8 and 10 on a 10 point pain scale.
Working with Keith was great. He definitely knows what he is doing and he is always learning something new to help his patients. Keith helped me in more ways than I can express. Today my pain level never gets above a 3 and that, my friends, is a miracle to me! I am very grateful to him. I also feel like I have made two new friends in Keith and Bren, who is also a wonderful person. I would encourage anyone who is looking to get better to call Optimal Results. I have told everyone I know."

"My back pain started in my early 40's. I had heard that back pain is something you just have to live with. In a couple years my pain was no longer something to ignore. I love playing tennis but I was in serious pain during and after play. I told my tennis partners that my tennis days are almost over. I saw a physician and a chiropractor but they did not help at all. I had completely given up hope that my back was going to feel better. In the mornings my pain was so bad I could not bend down. Putting on my pants and socks was a challenge.
I called Keith giving it a 1% chance that it would get better(like just a little less pain) and a 99% chance it would get worse. I have had a lot of good fortunes in my life but none have come close to being called a miracle except for this miracle that I am now totally pain free. I don't even remember having a back ache. I only remember when I see Keith in the gym and for a moment I have to think why I knew him.
Keith gave me the right exercises on day one and it was exactly opposite to what others gave me. My first reaction was 'are you sure?' What I really meant was, 'are you out of your mind?' But within a few days things got so much better. I think I saw him for a couple weeks and after that I did the exercises and have been healthy and very happy. Now when I play tennis, all my body parts hurt except my back. Good job Keith, good job."
"Keith's coaching, counseling and physical therapy greatly improved my shoulder injury. Keith has a very engaging and motivational style so increased weights and exercise intensity appears effortless. Keith is a very capable and result oriented physical therapist and I would recommend him to my friends and family."

"After 7 PT sessions with Keith I feel I am 80% back to full strength with my knee. But I feel the more important benefit is the education I received. I learned that my knee pain is not a sign of worse things to come and I learned how to fix it and get back to full mobility. The additional pleasant surprise was that I received a better understanding of strength training in general and found a great place to do it. The pieces of the whole physical maintenance puzzle are coming together."

"I was told by a surgeon that I needed surgery and that it was my only option. I didn't buy it, so I went on a mission to find the answer I knew existed and I found him, Keith Glasser. Keith taught me to heal my condition using simple techniques that I can use at anytime and that puts me in charge of my physical well being where I belong."
"I was having a nasty bout of sciatica when I went to see Optimal Results. Keith gave me a plethora of exercises for my lower back and for my neck as well as the motivation to stick with them. We got that under control in a few short weeks, then switched over to working on my long-suffering neck pain and improved that by leaps and bounds as well. I will definitely be recommending Optimal Results to all my aching friends."
“When I first came into Optimal Results, I was unable to walk and complete daily activities. I had a lot of problems with nerve pain which ran down my lower back to my leg. Within the first week the pain decreased immensely. After completing the program, I have absolutely no pain, have lost 25 lbs, and feel better than I have in three years. Thank you for all your help and support.”
“When I first came into see Keith, my lower back was in a great deal of pain. The exercises that he gave me helped after the very first session. Each week, my back stayed pain free with the additional exercises that he gave me. I also have benefitted greatly from the relaxation technique that he would have me do at the end of several of the session. I am very pleased with the progress that he has helped me achieve.”
Barbara A. Thompson
“When I first came to see Keith, I was having back pain and knee pain. I was afraid I would need another knee surgery and had a very hard time going down stairs. Instead of taking the stairs at work, I used the elevator. This made me feel very old and disabled.
Now after working with Keith, I am feeling much better. I can walk better, no need to use the elevator and absolutely no back pain. I feel much better, both physically and mentally. I’m moving more and look forward to continuing my exercise program on my own.”
“My first meeting with Keith was a few weeks after having back surgery, still in pain and with limited motion. Over the next few weeks with Keith’s patience, my therapy was aligned and realigned according to my progress, and improvement certainly came. After nine sessions I felt better than I had before the back problem surfaced, and Keith’s coaching has put fitness back into my life for good.
Keith has a great attitude, is always professional and is extremely knowledgeable in his field. It’s this combination that makes him very effective in what he does. I ridiculed him about the name “Optimal Results” numerous times during our sessions, but it is one name that accurately represents the service provided.”

“My back and hamstrings feel substantially stronger. The pain is almost gone in both areas. Optimal Results has also taught me how to maintain and increase the strength in my back and legs. Keith has shown me exercises that work to strengthen and reduce pain in these muscles as well as the muscles surrounding the problem areas.
Thanks so much!”
“After years of low back pain and lack of range of motion in my hips and lower back, I decided to give the McKenzie Method a shot. I had tried Chiro – acupressure – acupuncture, you name it and no relief. A buddy of mine turned me on to Keith and the McKenzie Method and my back and hips have been pain free and my range of motion is back for the first time in years. I cannot tell you how lucky I feel to have been referred to Keith. My thanks to Keith and staff for a quick and full recovery.”
“Optimal Results has provided me with the utmost professional service in my recovery from knee replacement surgery.
The Physical Therapist is an outstanding, knowledgeable expert and I have been very lucky to have discovered his organization.
I have gleaned much benefit from attending regular therapy before and after surgery. I am very pleased with the results and would highly recommend Optimal Results for your physical therapy needs.”
“In the course of my treatment here at Optimal Results, which spanned roughly 5-6 weeks, the back pain I’ve been suffering from for 3-4 months has completely regressed and I’m now pain free. Keith managed to accomplish this transformation with simple instructions about stretches that could be done daily, weekly, and regularly to keep me in the best shape I could be. This was accomplished without any dependence on prescription meds and in addition to healing the lumbar strain I was referred here for, Keith also managed to cure chronic headaches I’ve been suffering for years.
A pleasure to work with.”

“Keith has given me back my life. I have struggled with chronic back pain for over 6 years. Pain dictated the choices I made in my life.
Optimal Results is the 5th physical therapy office I have worked with. When I met Keith he was confident of his ability to create results and I was extremely skeptical. He spent the time to explain his thoughts in great detail and gave me the underlying theories behind his choices. He worked with me both cognitively and physically to create strength and trust. Within a few sessions I was almost pain free. I wish the story ended there, but I hit a point in my process where I was in more pain than I started with. I was frustrated and scared. Again, Keith took the time and energy to reassure me. Together we worked through the pain and I now have been pain free for over a month. I have finally accepted the fact that he was right all along and my choices in life don’t need to be dictated by the pain. I will be grateful to Keith for the rest of my life for this enormous change he has been a part of in my life.”
“I was told by a surgeon that I needed surgery and it was my only option. I didn’t buy it. So I went on a mission to find the answer I knew existed and I found him, Keith Glasser, CERT MDT. Keith taught me how to heal my condition using simple techniques that I can use at any time, and that puts me in charge of my physical wellbeing, where I belong.”

“Before I came to Optimal Results, my knees were giving me constant problems. I didn’t know how to work my body out correctly. Now that I have been to about 8 sessions of physical therapy, I feel much better about working out properly and my knee pain is much less frequent now. In the gym, I no longer feel lost on what machines to use and how the machine works. Working out has now become a major part of my life and I am excited to keep building my muscles and be less prone to hurting my body. Thank you for helping me!”
“I feel a lot better after 8 sessions of therapy. Now I know exactly how to cope with lower back pain. When I first came in, my back pain was keeping me awake at night. And now, after the treatment, I feel great. The pain has drastically decreased. The exercises were helpful and practical. Definitely worth the time and effort.”
“My time here with Optimal Results has been a great experience. The staff is wonderful, facilities are terrific and PT with Keith was the best. I appreciate the time spent helping me with my recovery. During the time, I regained confidence and strength within my knee and myself.”
“Since coming to Keith for lower back strain, all pain has disappeared. I had spasms that occurred about 3 times a day before starting treatment, and they were reduced to about one per 3-4 days immediately. Now, four weeks into the program, I’ve not had a spasm for about 1-2 weeks.”
“I am very pleased with the progress I made working with Keith. My migraines have been reduced dramatically and the range of motion in my neck increased significantly. The yoga and cable exercises are very helpful and I will continue to do them on a consistent basis. Overall I am very pleased with the treatment I received!
Thank you kindly!”
“When I came in, I was regularly in pain, about 5 on a 1 – 10 scale. I had limited my activities and found things like standing up to be painful. Now my pain is usually about a 1 and I feel like I can do most of the things I used to, including snowboarding. Overall, I am very much improved and getting there was actually fun.”
Meagan L. Barner
“I first saw Keith Glasser on August 25 of 2009. Since then, I have had six visits with him. I feel totally comfortable writing this account of his skills and kindness, (I am 85 years old and not the easiest type of patient for a physical therapist.)
Keith gives written descriptions of the exercises he recommends and, in session, he demonstrates them. (I first came to him with a specific problem – head, neck, and shoulder. I see so many old people stooped over and I want to avoid that.)
I am, by no means, a hypochondriac. But I want to live the remainder of my life in as good of shape as possible. I am pleased to recommend Keith Glasser to others – young or old.
I look upon sessions with him as a supplement to regular exercise. He helps me work on problems specific to my needs.
I can feel the improvement and, when I look into the mirror, I can see the change.”
“I was in a lot of pain after my car accident and Optimal Results has helped me to get back to my normal life. The exercises and massage helped me a lot over the last few months. Thank you so much for all your help. I will recommend you anyone I know who has pain.”
“I’m very excited and appreciative of the experience I’ve had. I feel great and I have the tools I need to continue my therapy on my own. I travel a lot for my job and I can do just about everything in the hotel room.
I sure wish I had known about how beneficial PT could be a year ago so I wouldn’t have spent so much time in pain. Better late than never!
Thank you very much!”
“My knee improved significantly. The swelling was greatly reduced and my range of motion also improved significantly. Keith Glasser uses a combination of exercises including yoga, weight training, and aerobic exercise to approach the problem holistically. Keith has special equipment (the G-Trainer) that was very valuable in my knee rehab program. Keith is very knowledgeable, personable, and positive in his approach!”

Keith's work with patients is confident, focused and empowering. His care is simple for patients to understand while being extremely effective and efficient. Keith's clinical responses are excellent and can be relied upon.
I think of Optimal Results for any general P.T. need though he shines brightest with chronic back and spine issues.
His down-to-earth nature is disarming for patients and the small operation very personal and caring.
I wholeheartedly recommend Optimal Results Physical Therapy.
Debra L. Glasser, M.D.
