About

As a physical therapist, my mission is to improve people’s confidence through movement. More recently, as a father, my “why” has grown to include supporting movement through lifestyle choices that maximize my chances for longevity. I have developed a passion for enhancing the genetic hand we are dealt with lifestyle choices – nutrition, movement, sleep hygiene, mental/emotional wellness, and social support. I feel that these lifestyle choices are the true foundation for living well (and moving well).

I love to teach! As they say, "to teach is to learn twice." Here is a link to one of my teaching moments in September 2022 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxEIQuceBY4

My wife tells me I have a phobia for silence and I fill the air with podcasts, played at 1.5 x speed

Dr. Dan was wonderful. Look forward to working with him in the future.

My sessions with Dan have been absolutely fantastic. He is a master of his trade. Extremely knowledgeable, very personable, a true professional. Dan has helped me regain my former ability, restored my confidence, and given me a deeper understanding of my shoulder. I recommend him to anyone!
