ATC: Certified Athletic Trainer
Born and raised in Bergen County, David is a graduate of Westwood High School. He went on to earn his B.S. in Athletic Training from West Virginia University (WVU) and is a Board Certified and Licensed Athletic Trainer. During his undergraduate studies, David worked with the WVU football, baseball, and wrestling teams as an athletic training student. He helped provide injury prevention strategies, on-field medical coverage, and rehabilitation protocols to keep athletes healthy and on the field as well as return to play following injury. David has a passion for baseball and completed two seasons as an intern athletic trainer with the Washington Nationals Baseball Club in Washington, D.C.
David returned to West Virginia University to complete his Doctorate of Physical Therapy. He first became interested in physical therapy after suffering several injuries as a high school athlete. After having a positive experience with physical therapy, David knew he wanted to return the favor and help individuals get back to their prior functional level and to doing the things that they love.
While David enjoys working with all patient populations, his background in working with collegiate and professional athletes sparked an interest in treating orthopedic and sport-related injuries. He particularly enjoys studying and working with throwing injuries, sport-specific rehabilitation, and post-concussion symptoms, in addition to analyzing pitching mechanics. David also takes an active interest in the CrossFit community—analyzing and improving the athletes’ body mechanics to help them perform lifts safely and efficiently.
In his free time, David enjoys working out, playing golf with friends, watching sports (especially the West Virginia Mountaineers), hiking, kayaking, snowboarding, playing guitar, cooking, and traveling. Some of his favorite places to visit are Higgins Beach, ME and Breckenridge, CO.
