David graduated Arcadia University in 2012 with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology.
During his time at Arcadia, he was a student-athlete as a member of the baseball
team. This led to an interest in physical therapy after sustaining an ACL injury
requiring surgery and intensive rehabilitation. After graduating from Arcadia, David
earned his Strength & Conditioning Specialist Certification through the National
Strength and Conditioning Association, gaining experience working with athletes
and various populations achieving their fitness and performance goals. He earned
his Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree in 2018 from Rutgers University. During
his last year at Rutgers, David traveled to New Orleans to present research on
Functional Electrical Stimulation’s Effect on Foot Drop in Patient’s with Multiple
Sclerosis at the American Physical Therapy Association’s National Conference. In
2020, he qualified for the Outcomes Achievement Award from Focus on Therapeutic
Outcomes Inc., (FOTO), for consistently helping patients achieve functional
improvement statistically above national predictions for orthopedic cases.
Over the past years, David has continued to specialize in orthopedic and neurological
treatments. He has completed the McKenzie Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy
Lumbar Spine Course, became Certified in the Selective Functional Movement
Assessment, became Certified in the Functional Movement Screen, and became
Certified in LSVT BIG, a Parkinson’s Disease Specific Treatment Program. David
next plans to pursue the American Physical Therapy Association’s Specialization
Certification in Orthopedics.
In his free time, David enjoys weightlifting, cooking, and playing with
his newborn son and dog.
