Dr. David Crawford was born and raised in Northern California’s Bay Area. He attended Sonoma State University, where he earned his BA in General Biology, before moving to sunny Southern California where he received extensive massage therapy training (1350 hours) and earned his Neuromuscular Massage Therapist and Health Educator certification from the National Holistic Institute. It was there that David discovered chiropractic and learned just how beneficial combining soft tissue therapies, like massage, and chiropractic could be. In January of 2017, David began his chiropractic training at the University of Bridgeport School of Chiropractic in Bridgeport, CT. He graduated in December 2020 having not only been the class president, but also earning the Richard E. Vincent Leadership Award, an award demonstrating outstanding leadership among his peers.
As a longtime competitive athlete and as a CrossFit trainer, David understands the differences tailored chiropractic can make in terms of athletic performance and recovery. With a focus on fostering functional movement in all areas of life, not just those in the gym or on the playing field, David strives to help his patients live and move pain-free whenever possible. Combining soft tissue therapies, chiropractic adjustments, and patient education, David works to make sure that his patients leave the office feeling better and more empowered than when they came in.
