David D Dannels, DC
Dr. Dannels is thrilled to begin the next phase of his career with the wonderful group of professionals at Structural Elements.
He graduated from Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, TX in 2001. He started his career by working in a variety of settings with many different types of professionals. His main focus was working with endurance athletes. He cared for and trained with marathoners, ultramarathoners, triathletes, ironman competitors, and cyclists of all abilities. He also volunteered a lot at local races to support the community and to help the competitors increase their level of performance and recovery.
David had an opportunity to "run away with the circus," and he did! He spent the next 6 years traveling the world with a multi-million-dollar production called Cavalia. He was responsible for creating the health and wellness department and for taking care of the entire company. He worked with people from all walks of life and from numerous different cultures and backgrounds. He took care of the performers, musicians, technicians, office staff and pretty much the whole crew including the horses.
While most people do not put their bodies through the extremes that endurance athletes and circus performers do, working with these individuals taught him a tremendous amount about how our bodies function under many different types of stress and tension. So David’s seen a wide variety of different kinds of injuries and chronic stress conditions. But in working with people who relied on their bodies every day, the most important thing he learned was how to teach people to listen to their own bodies. He loves to educate people on the habits of movement, posture, sleep, diet and breath. This helps them derive the most pleasure and performance out of their bodies, enhance their innate talents, and reduce the risk of injuries.
David and his family have recently relocated to Leesburg, Va. from Washington state. In February of 2017 they welcomed their first child into the world. A little boy named Zayden. David’s sister and mom live in Leesburg and Christine’s family lives in Quebec, Canada. It’s a priority for them to be closer to family as they raise their precious little one. Dr. Dannels is ready to start serving and helping his community reach new levels of health and wellness. So whether you have a desk job or ride elephants for a living Dr. Dannels is excited to help you on your way. He thanks you in advance for giving him the opportunity to serve.

Erin is passionate about integrating her knowledge of the human body with her ability to help others create and sustain a healthy lifestyle. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology from James Madison University and her Massage Certification from the Central Maryland School of Massage in Frederick, MD.
After suffering several sports injuries, Erin was introduced to physical therapy as a patient.

Erin also completed a 500 hours internship in a physical therapy clinic. She later worked as a fitness trainer at Planet Fitness.
Erin’s personal knowledge of athletics, combined with her training in Structural Elements™ allow her to successfully improve performance and sports related injury. When away from the clinic, Erin enjoys spending time with her family and friends, traveling and staying fit.
