Joe Howe, RPT

Physical Therapist

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.
