Daniel Strack, PT, DPT
Physical Therapist
[email protected]
My name is Daniel Strack, PT, DPT. I am originally from Horseheads, NY and graduated with my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Nazareth College in 2017. I completed my last clinical rotation of PT school at the Chili location of Agape which led me to pursue beginning my career here. I played golf for four years at Nazareth College and am an avid sports fan. Since my junior year of high school, I knew I wanted to be a physical therapist and use my skills to help people live the life they want

In May 2018, I attained a Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) Certification, which allows me the opportunity to biomechanically evaluate and treat physical limitations in a golfer. Following a thorough screening, I can identify physical weaknesses (limited mobility, decreased strength, etc..) that may lead to current limitations for a golfer, or may predispose them to a potential injury, and then tailor an individualized exercise program towards those weaknesses. Whether it be rehabilitation as a therapy patient or screening and treatment as a golf client, I would love the opportunity to help you along your journey to a higher level of function.
