David A. Dallmeyer, PT has been in practice locally for over 40 years. He graduated from Atlantic Union College in Clinton, MA and completed his Bachelor’s degree in Physical Therapy at Loma Linda University. Although he started his physical therapy career at New England Memorial Hospital in Boston, Dave made Santa Barbara his permanent home. He began working at Santa Barbara Rehabilitation Institute before moving on to St. Francis Hospital where he was the Director of Physical Therapy. He opened his private practice in 1980 which has focused on chronic pain, rehabilitation, acute; sports related as well as dance related injuries.

He has developed a unique approach to treatment using Myofascial Release and Postural Integration under the direction of Evelyn Lerner M.S., Rolfer.

Combining his passion for power lifting (Dave won the National Championship in 1998, dead lifting and squatting over six hundred pounds) with his physical therapy expertise, Dave opened Santa Barbara Gym and Fitness in 1980, and gained a deeper understanding of the rehabilitation of athletes; a skill which he now applies to all his patients.
