My Story

I’m Dave Balzer. I am a practicing physical therapist and health coach. I have a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Franklin Pierce University. I am also a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and Certified Nutrition Coach. My practice offers a wide range of virtual and in-person services. I have extensive experience providing online health, nutrition, pain management, and wellness services to clients throughout the country. I provide in-home concierge physical therapy in Upstate South Carolina.

 

In my clinical career, I have been fortunate to work in many diverse and enlightening settings. The combination of these unique professional experiences, a constant pursuit of continuing education, and expert mentorship has helped evolve my clinical approach to be more holistic and client-centered. My practice is based on the health pillars of movement, nutrition, sleep, mindfulness, and community.

 

Throughout my career I have worked with clients across the lifespan from 8 years old to 106, who were recovering from a wide range of issues such as orthopedic dysfunction/surgery, neurological degenerative conditions, chronic pain, sports performance, cardiopulmonary dysfunction, cancer, trauma, motor vehicle accidents, depression, chronic falls, and end of life care… so mostly anything related to physical and stress-related issues/pain. This diverse client population -- weekend warriors, grandparents looking to keep up with grandkids, young professionals looking for a health change, business executives seeking longevity, professional athletes, and those “stuck” individuals who have exhausted all options and labeled as “failed patients” -- proved formative in developing my clinical approach. The one common denominator in assisting these clients in healing: empowering individuals through a holistic lifestyle approach, integrating body and mind, to help you heal and thrive without pain, stress, or dysfunction.

 

I live in Greenville, South Carolina with my wife Brittany, who also received her DPT from Franklin Pierce University. We are accompanied on our travel journeys by our goldendoodle, Woody!
