About David

Sports Physical Therapist

My Story

Having been involved in several areas of athletic development and as one of Nebraska’s first Board Certified Sports Specialists, David is uniquely qualified as a provider of sport-specific physical therapy. Based in Omaha, he was a Strength and Conditioning Coach at Creighton University for several years, which afforded him the opportunity to work with not only high level intercollegiate athletes for all sports, but also professional and Olympic athletes. He was able to continue his work with professional athletes at Omaha Sports Physical Therapy, Quest Personal Training and Coaching, and now Children’s Hospital and Medical Center. In addition, David uses his experience with both playing soccer and running to treat and perform biomechanical analyses for several high caliber (Olympic and professional) athletes both here and internationally.

A Nebraska native, David is an internationally-known expert in the field of plyometrics and sports rehabilitation and has spoken internationally and regionally on running, soccer and strength training and conditioning. He has authored several articles on sports rehabilitation as well as textbook chapters on rehabilitation, speed training and plyometric training chapters for both the Essentials of Strength Training and Conditioning and NSCA’s Essentials of Personal Training textbooks.

Highlights

In my career, I have been fortunate to do some pretty cool things. I have worked with nearly every type of athlete, I have taught courses, published books, chapters, and articles, and I have helped students and professionals achieve their goals.
