DR. ZAKI AFZAL
PT, DPT, OCS, FAAOMPT, Cert DN, CSCS, USA-W
Dr. Zaki Afzal is a leading physical therapist in Las Vegas who helps active adults, athletes and lifters get rid of pain and get back to the workouts and sports they love without pain medications, injections or surgeries.
As a weightlifter that's been through injuries that healthcare providers had a hard time figuring out, Zaki gets it. He's been through many of the challenges you're going through right now, and he understands what it's like to be worried you'll never be able to enjoy being active again without fear of pain. It's both mentally and emotionally draining, and it just doesn't have to be that way.
Let's be honest - it's scary when you feel like you're never going to get back to the workouts and sports you love, especially when your doctor only offers painkillers or injections and tells you there's nothing else that can be done. It's even scarier when your pain carries over to your daily life and interferes with the time you spend with family and friends.
Zaki takes pride in keeping active adults, athletes and lifters active in their game, working out and being fit & active for life. Zaki founded Optimize Physical Therapy & Performance out of this simple need - to make sure no one has to suffer through pain or a lack of high quality care like he did. Too often, people don't get the care they need in today's profit-centered healthcare system. Optimize is a patient-centered clinic, and we're here to make sure you get the care you need, exactly when you need it.
