Dr. Jeff Schuerman
PT, DPT, TPI, Functional Dry Needling
I was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. Went to college at the University of Nevada, Reno with a dual major in Biology and Community Health Sciences, with a minor in Chemistry. I played lots of high school and college sports (tennis, swimming, basketball, and golf). I started working as a physical therapy aide throughout college for 4 years, and also worked as a physical therapy tutor throughout my PT school. I have now been working as a physical therapist for 2.5 years at Optimize Physical Therapy and Performance. I’ve also created my own home health company for a side hustle.
I have a lot of clinical experience from Advanced Healthcare of Salem (SNF), Sunrise Hospital (Acute Care), and Movement Lab (Outpatient Orthopedics). I was a Physical Therapist at Sunrise Hospital (2 years), and now I’m a Physical Therapist at Optimize Physical Therapy and Performance (2.5 years).
My core values are: Hard Work, Passion, Integrity, Trust, Leadership, & High Quality.
“You drown not by falling into the river, but by staying submerged in it.”
I want my patients out of the vicious circle of unnecessary surgeries and over prescribed medications, and into the realm of using functional movement/exercise to get them back to doing the things they love.
I provide high quality, one-on-one care, that specializes in using exercise-based and manual therapy techniques for active adults and athletes. I enjoy treating sport specific injuries, orthopedic injuries, muscle imbalances, and cardiovascular impairments.
With Optimize, I get to work with patients that choose to improve their lifestyle and want to work hard to achieve their goals. I work with the smartest and most passionate team of physical therapists in all of Las Vegas .We constantly spend time and money to continue to educate ourselves so we are the best in the business.
In my off-time, I like to play golf and tennis. I also like to travel and workout.

“I cannot express my gratitude enough for the remarkable experience I had with Dr. Jeff in overcoming my severe low back pain I had for 8 years. When I first arrived, I was skeptical about ever being able to do the things I loved again.
However, Dr. Jeff developed a comprehensive treatment plan that targeted the root causes of my pain. Through a combination of hands on treatments that included dry needling, exercises, and education on how my body actually moves, I witnessed a dramatic improvement in my condition. Slowly but surely, my strength and flexibility returned, allowing me to engage in activities I thought were lost forever.“
