David Action 002David Action 001As 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 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 adore everyone at Excel Physical Therapy. Over a 9 month period, Megan was not only my excellent physical therapist but she also became my friend and confidant. There are no words to express how much she helped me not only physically but mentally and emotionally to learn to cope with what proved to be a chronic, degenerative condition. Also, Nicole taught me more about my insurance coverage than the insurance company could have! Good luck to all of you and Thank You!" --Bozeman patient
