Have you ever wondered why the same injury keeps coming back?
Many times we are looking at the area that is over used and inflamed. Dave Gottfeld uses a principal based approach to look at why too much stress was placed on the irritated area. Dave works in conjunction with the Physical Therapist, Physical Trainer, Orthopedist, Chiropractor, and Osteopath to identify the cause of the injury not just the symptoms.
What sets Dave’s services apart from other practitioners is that he will develop and tailor an exercise regimen unique to the individual. Dave will give you specific exercises that will address the root cause of your injury. Top therapy clinics, universities, and private schools around the country have adopted some of his unique exercises to prevent injuries for their patients and athletes.
