Rock Valley, West Des Moines Physical Therapy Join Forces to Better Serve the Des Moines Metro Area

Rock Valley, West Des Moines Physical Therapy join forces to better serve the Des Moines metro area.

Two clinics under the West Des Moines Physical Therapy umbrella have joined the Rock Valley Physical Therapy family and will continue to provide great care to those in and around West Des Moines, Iowa.

West Des Moines Physical Therapy and Pleasant Hill Physical Therapy, will unite under the Rock Valley banner March 4, 2024.

West Des Moines Physical Therapy is located at 3701 E.P. True Parkway, Suite 300, West Des Moines, Iowa. Pleasant Hill Physical Therapy rests at 1280 Copper Creek Drive, Pleasant Hill, Iowa.

“West Des Moines Physical Therapy has been an amazing journey over the last 12 years,’’ said company founder Erich Ottervanger, PT, DPT. “I have enjoyed the patient care, growing the clinic, and developing strong therapists. West Des Moines Physical Therapy means so much to me, so it was extremely important to find a trusted partner in our community who has the same values and ethics when it comes to patient care.’’

Bringing together two patient-centered entities, both dedicated to “Making Better Lives,’’ is a win on all fronts.

“West Des Moines Physical Therapy and Pleasant Hill Physical Therapy share the same vision for taking care of our communities,” said Rock Valley Physical Therapy’s Stephanie Kelsick, PT, OCS, CSCS, Regional Manager. “We look forward to continued commitment to our values of excellence and dedication to our patients, providers, and communities, while expanding our geographic reach and sharing enhanced expertise.’’

West Des Moines Physical Therapy and Pleasant Hill Physical Therapy’s work in chronic pain, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, hypermobility syndromes, pediatrics, sports injuries, and warm water aquatics, will continue to be service-related staples. The two clinics take great pride in being a strong resource for patients with more difficult and complex clincal presentations.

The journey of bringing to life one’s vision – and seeing it through for well past a decade – takes heart, compassion, grit and determination. Ottervanger says there is great comfort knowing that kind of commitment will remain in place by joining forces with Rock Valley.

“What has excited me the most about Rock Valley Physical Therapy is the high-quality people I have met as I have gotten to know the company better,’’ Ottervanger said. “I’m highly impressed with a clear message of who Rock Valley is, and what it stands for – quality patient care, high ethical standards, and a rewarding work environment where people can feel valued.’’
