What does Dave Do?
Dave helps people enjoy active lifestyles by troubleshooting pain and movement difficulties that prevent the quality of life they deserve. He practices a sophisticated but simple system.
This system addresses the moving parts such as fascia, muscle, ligament, nerve and joint capsules. I use my hands to determine if moving parts do not move correctly when adhesions or scarring form as we move through our lives as domesticated humans. Once a problem site has been identified, I use the appropriate protocol for reestablishing the movement of tissues.
I utilize a system that ranks and documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. This informs us of required adjustments in your fitness or training program to help meet your goals.

What does an Appointment Cost?
Standard Office Visit ($65.00)
30 minute office visit is most common. We get a lot done in a short amount of time.
Extended Office Visit ($125)
The extended office visit length is ideal but not required for a first visit. This office visit is best for a combination of soft tissue treatment, Functional Movement Screen and movement training.
Why Make an Appointment?
1. A skilled provider can detect tissue problems that cannot be detected with conventional medical and orthopedic testing.
2. To bring permanent resolution to conditions that have been considered untreatable.
3. Your brain is smarter than you. You don’t often realize that your compensating for lost movement. Discover how you feel when your tissue movement is restored.
What patients are best served by Active Release Techniques®?
•Any athlete that has plateaued or has decreased performance.
•Anyone suspected of a soft tissue injury that responds poorly or slowly to conventional treatment.
• Someone that has responded to conventional treatment but has plateaued before complete resolution.
• Symptoms of pain, numbness, tingling, aching, burning, pulling, and decreased range of motion.
• When all conventional tests (MRI, CT, EMG, blood work) are negative, yet the symptoms persist. There are no technological tests for soft tissue problems. Usually, they are best well determined by palpation for altered tissue texture, tension, and movement.
