Our Team North Spokane Clinic
Dave and Beth decided to jump off the cliff and open Acceleration Physical Therapy in March of 2007. With over 30 years of combined physical therapy experience and 7,000 new evaluations, Dave and Beth have seen almost every kind of orthopedic injury. We understand that the most important part of physical therapy is listening to our patient’s story to understand where they come from and where they would like to go. In this healthcare environment, where face time with your practitioner is getting harder to come by, it is nice to know that all of your questions will be addressed.

David Jeter, MPT, CMPT
Dave moved to Spokane in 1995 to study Biology at Eastern Washington University. He was accepted to the EWU Physical Therapy program, and graduated in 2001. Dave earned his level III certification from the North American Institute of Manual Therapy in 2006 by attending over 160 hours of continuing education, writing three case studies, passing a written test, and passing a live practical test. Dave loves to golf with his wife, Sarah, who tends to beat him on a semi-annual basis. While Dave is a skilled manual therapist, he feels that some of his best work is performed at his barbeque in his back yard. He enjoys mountain biking, adventure racing, triathlons, fly-fishing, and most any other outdoor activity that can be done in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Check out Dave's blog.
