Facilities & Services

Orthopedic Optimization is all about preventing an injury from occurring, or healing an injury before it gets worse.

I believe physical therapy should be provided one on one, by a Doctor of Physical Therapy, for 60 minutes. This approach will get you better faster, with fewer visits.

Each visit you will be receiving: Hands-on manual therapy, exercise, and possibly other modalities. You will probably have some exercises or advice as homework between visits.

Typically with this boutique style one-on-one physical therapy what would normally be multiple visits can fit into a single session, saving you both time and money in the long run.

DCB Physical Therapy is located at the Boulder Healing Hub and One Boulder Fitness.

Fantastic results and all around great physical therapy experience!!!.. Dr Dan is THE guy to see in the greater Boulder/Denver area. 5 star, 10/10, the best!

-Kenny B

I have made great strides in the last few months towards functional mobility and overall rehab. Dan has a much more well rounded approach than my previous PT and trying BFR has significantly helped my progress.

-Katherine P

Dan is the best! He's super nice, knows what he's doing and stays up to date on the newest research in the field. I didn't think I would have fun doing PT but he made it a great experience.

-Samuel M

Very impressed with the time he takes in determining the source of the pain, the hands on treatment given and his encouragement. Highly recommend!
