After spending the better part of a decade cross country ski racing at a national level, then coaching and working in the exercise physiology lab at Central Oregon Community college, Dave decided to parlay his experience, interest in biomechanics, and passion for working with people into a new direction as a Physical Therapist. Dave graduated with distinction from Pacific University with his Doctorate of Physical Therapy and is also a National Strength and Conditioning Associated Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS). Dave was also recently named to the US Nordic Ski Team medical team and travels with the various Nordic disciplines to World Cup events. Dave brings his unique perspective to his PT practice, not only helping patients get relief from their pain, but also delving deep into the how and why those symptoms are present, truly addressing the underlying musculoskeletal and neuromuscular issues.

Dave gave me tools that I still use today.
I had an a really significant injury that stopped me from running for a long time. Dave gave me insight into the mechanism of the injury, clearly explained the 'why' of his plan, and by following it I've continued to make steady progress. It's not always an overnight magic bullet; but the good understanding of my injury and the clear communication was exactly what I needed to deal with the challenges of injury, and to make steady progress. Thanks man!
