Dr. Dani Lawson

Physical Therapist

PT, DPT, Cert. DN

Dani is a Doctor of Physical Therapy whose passion is getting people back to doing what they love through rehab, prevention, and performance physical therapy. She’s a Missouri native who grew up going to the mountains since she was a kid, so to no surprise eventually made the move out to Colorado. Dani graduated from the University of Missouri with a bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences and a minor in Nutritional Sciences. She then went on to receive her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Cleveland State University. Experiencing physical therapy first hand as a competitive cheerleader and soccer player, Dani has a special interest in working with youth athletes and helping them overcome injuries.

​Dani has extensive experience in sports and orthopedic settings, treating post-operative individuals and recreational athletes of all ages helping them get back to the gym or on the field. Her post-graduate studies have been focused on manual therapy of the spine and extremities, diagnosis and treatment of injuries in weightlifting and return to sport field athletes, and concussion rehabilitation. In 2022, she expanded her skillset to become trained in women’s health as an internal pelvic floor clinician with a focus towards the fitness athlete, including pregnancy and postpartum. Dani believes a large majority of the populations’ aches and pains can be resolved through movement education and practice.

Outside of the clinic Dani enjoys crossfitting, snowboarding, spending time with her friends and family, and playing with her two dogs.
