Ephraim Clinic Therapists

Joe Howe, RPT

Clinical Director


Joe Howe, Co-founder of Therapy West, attended BYU and received his Pre-Physical Therapy degree, then attended St. Louis University where he graduated as a Registered Physical Therapist. Before moving to Ephraim, UT, 30+ years ago, he practiced in a rehabilitation clinic in Sandy, UT dealing with hand, spinal, and brain injuries.

Joe’s continuing education involves working with orthopedic surgeons on Saturday mornings at Snow College during football season, assessing every injury, and perceiving how to manage the therapy. “I can’t think of a thing I haven’t dealt with in therapy. You have to be sharp and maintain continuing education hours to be competent to treat old and new injuries. I explain to every patient what is going to happen – request they are patient with themselves for progress and help them understand what and when to expect improvement.”

Joe’s time is spent in home-health, Mount Pleasant Hospital, and the clinic in Ephraim. He also works with the North Sanpete School District and high school students who have sports related injuries. He has volunteered with Manti High School athletics since 1998.

Joe is married to Kjirsten with six beautiful children. Their favorite family time is spent outdoors, especially when everyone comes back for boating Utah’s pristine Lake Powell waters.

Derek Ellgen, PT, DPT

Physical Therapist


Derek Ellgen enjoys living and working in a rural community where he can use a variety of skills. He sees patients at the Ephraim Outpatient Clinic, Sanpete Valley Hospital, and home health in the surrounding area. Derek also spends time helping athletes at Manti High School and Snow College.

“I chose this career because it allows me to help others reach their goals and return to their normal activities. I enjoy assisting patients through their rehab journey and being part of the healing process. It’s important to me to develop a relationship with each patient, making sure their needs and concerns are met.”

In his spare time, Derek enjoys playing almost any kind of sport, hunting, hiking, and camping. He loves spending time with his wife, Julianne, and four daughters.
