David graduated from Stockton University with a degree in Health Sciences in 2016 and returned to Stockton University to receive his Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2018. During his time at Stockton, David completed clinical rotations caring for patients with chronic pain and joint replacements, treating patients with neurological diagnoses, and worked with patients in the medical/surgical ICU. David first developed an interest in therapy when he helped his mother through rehab after surgery to repair her rotator cuff. He has also been completing rehabilitation programs for equine athletes since he was a sophomore in high school. His interest in physical therapy came about from these experiences and they have given him a unique perspective in his career as a physical therapist.
David and his wife own and operate a farm in Williamstown, NJ where he trains sport horses for equestrian events when he is not in the clinic.
David is currently working towards his Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT) certification to assist patients with low back and neck pain. He is also continuing his education in the field of vestibular pathologies to better serve patients with conditions involving dizziness, concussion, and neurological limitations.

At Main Line Health – Riddle Hospital in Media PA, he furthered his experience in manual therapies including scar management and deep tissue massage. These experiences allow Eric to work with a diverse population and provide specific therapies to his patients.
Eric has enjoyed the variety of patients and diagnoses that outpatient orthopedics allows him to evaluate and treat.
