David Coletta, MPT, CMPT. As the founding owner of Excel Physical Therapy, David strives for our clinics to deliver unprecedented excellence with patient care in the Gallatin Valley. David established Excel in 2001 on the principles of specialization, advanced education and customer service.
David specializes in the treatment of back and neck pain, spinal issues, whiplash, headaches, TMJ/jaw pain, and postural dysfunctions. David received his masters in physical therapy from Mount St. Mary’s College in Los Angeles, California. He enjoys finding long-term solutions for his patients — solutions that involve a fine-tuned combination of manual manipulative therapy and a targeted exercise program that address even the most difficult patient presentations.
A considerable amount of David’s advanced training occurred through the North American Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy (NAIOMT). He has completed advanced certification in manual therapy (CMPT) with NAIOMT, and he has received advanced training in dry needling techniques for the spine and extremities. David is currently an active fellow in training with NAIOMT and is scheduled to earn his FAAOMPT from AAOMPT (American Academy of Orthopedic Physical Therapy) in 2023. David is a Certified Clinical BikeFit Pro Fitter. David supports the US Paralympic Nordic Ski Team by working with the athletes on preventing and rehabilitating injuries to keep them on the snow in their pursuit of winning gold at world cup events and the winter Paralympics.
David enjoys spending time with his family, cooking, Nordic skiing, road biking, fly-fishing and backpacking in Montana and the rocky mountain area.
"I want to add my name to the long list of people who recommend EXCEL Physical Therapy. I was active in sports for 14 years and operated a building maintenance business for 30 years. I have developed a number of physical health problems over the years. David worked with me one-on-one to successfully treat a serious nerve problem which limited my ability to drive. David and his staff are among the finest therapists I have had the pleasure of working with. I highly recommend them to anyone who has physical health challenges and need the best care possible." --J.D., Bozeman PatientView more testimonials from Excel PT clients »
