Dr. Dan Crusoe
Dan received his Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Michigan-Flint in 2017 and Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science from Saginaw Valley State University in 2014. After an 8,000-mile road trip across the western half of the United States in 2015, he and his wife decided they wanted to move to Seattle. After moving, he started a residency program and became a Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist.
While in graduate school, he was a research assistant for one of the leading researchers on the topic of concussion. This lead to a deep understanding about the rehabilitation process, which resulted in the development of a specialty for Dan.
Dan transitioned from a nationally qualified powerlifter in the USAPL in Michigan to outdoor athlete in Washington. He loves to climb, mountaineer, ski, hike, and fly fish.
He knows how magical it is to be able to experience the outdoors by the early alpine start, hitting the trail, floating through fresh powder, and crimping on that small hold. He never wants you to lose those opportunities and knows how important it is to find that provider that gets it.
In 2019, Dan was awarded a Board Specialty in orthopedics by the American Physical Therapy Association. In addition, post-graduate education and certifications include:
Dan HAS A BACKGROUND AND INTEREST IN TREATING: Outdoor Athletes, concussion, and powerlifters.
Dan enjoys spending time outdoors, traveling, visiting family back in Michigan, and reading. Fun fact: if he wouldn’t have pursued his DPT, he would have worked on a PhD in Physiology. This is why he probably likes reading research articles more than he should.
