D J has been extensively trained in sports rehabilitation, Michigan State Manual Medicine, spinal manipulation, and is certified in Dry Needling through Myopain Seminars.

D J has been involved in sports his entire life, including four years of collegiate baseball at The College of St. Scholastica (CSS). He continues to be involved in CSS baseball through program development, video analysis, and rehabilitation. In addition to his clinical experience, D J has served as an adjunct professor in the physical therapy dept at CSS since 2010.
