Meet Dr. Dave
I was born in Indiana but grew up overseas in a military family. In 1993, we moved back to the States and settled in AZ. I'm an eagle scout and can survive in the desert (but barely in MN). My undergrad training is in veterinary sciences. I attended Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, Texas from 2005-2008. There, I met my future wife, Erika (who's originally from St. Cloud, MN and that's how I ended up in the middle of snowy MN). We have 3 little hellions at home who I love dearly.
We moved back to MN in 2013 and started Accelerate Chiropractic & Rehab. Despite numerous location changes over the years, my dedication to my patients is unchanged. I strive to provide the best results in the fewest appointments possible.
Work with me
My philosophy is that bones don’t move bones, muscles move bones. Fascia holds everything in place! And the brain and nervous system control all the above. We cannot address chronic pain or issues in the body by simply moving bones. We have to look to the soft tissues, movement patterns, and neuropathways to achieve optimal function.
I work on fascial restrictions and poor movement patterns by hybridizing 2 soft tissue techniques – Fascial Distortion Model (FDM) and Active Release Technique (ART). I start with a custom screening test to determine the type of dysfunction: weakness, tension, hyper or hypomobility, etc. Based on your unique needs, we may do more soft tissue manipulation to increase flexibility before an adjustment. We may also need to improve neuroplasticity with neurologically appropriate exercise or therapies. My goal is to help you get those big results you’re looking for, whether that’s avoiding surgery, getting your child to poop 3x a day, or just getting shit to not hurt when you move.
