Daniel D. Deane

PT, DPT, CSM – Founder & President
Dr. Daniel D. Deane was born May 15, 1969 just outside of Washington D.C. in the suburbs of
Adelphi, Maryland where he was a 4 year letter winner and McDonalds All-American in
Basketball at High Point High School.

Highly recruited by the nations top basketball programs, Daniel signed a scholarship to attend a
little known Division I Men’s Basketball program in Fairfax, VA, named George Mason
University. While there, Daniel and his teammates won the schools first NCAA tournament bid
into the field of 64 in March of 1989. Although they would go on to lose in the first round to the
Indiana Hoosiers coached by Bobby Knight, Daniel’s team would finish the season a very
respectful 21-9. His teams amassed a cumulative winning percentage of .700% during his 4 years
of competition and he was named first team Academic All-American in the Colonial Athletic
Association in the spring of 1990. In 2006, fifteen years removed from the program, the George
Mason Patriots Basketball team would go on their historic NCAA tournament run and first ever
Final Four appearance, losing to the eventual Champion Florida Gators.

Upon graduating from GMU in the Spring of 1992 with a Bachelors of Science Degree in
Physical Education, Daniel was accepted into the Masters Program in Physical Therapy at the
University of Maryland at Baltimore in the Summer of 1993. While there, Daniel focused his
studies towards the area of Orthopedic and Sports Medicine. Daniel would graduate with Honors
in the Spring of 1996 with both a Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Physical Therapy.

Following 2 years of service at a local outpatient rehab center near his home in Bowie, MD,
Daniel altered his career path drastically, moving to the Atlanta, GA area where he took a job as a
Clinical Director just two years removed from his studies. It didn’t take long there for Daniel to
aspire towards opening a clinic of his own and so the Per4mance Golf Medical & Sports Clinic
was born in the fall of 2000. Here, golfers of all skill levels and handicaps could go and have their
golf swings analyzed, as well as a complete physical analysis performed to help determine
problems which may be hindering their performance on the golf links.
In 2002, Daniel sold the rights to his practice and moved yet further South to Tampa, Florida
where he began a small consulting company Per4mance Rehab & Consulting. The company was
developed to assist various health care practices throughout the state, enhance profitability
through training in: Strategic Marketing, Budget/Analysis, Proper Hiring Strategies and
Billing/Coding strategies. Daniel continues his consulting of select practices on a part time basis
as time allows even today.

Upon relocation to Ft. Lauderdale, FL in 2003, Dr. Deane founded the Spine Institute at South
Florida Physical Therapy in the spring of 2004. Over the past 7 years in practice, his clinics have
developed a stellar reputation within the communities of North Miami Beach, Hollywood,
Sunrise and Pompano Beach, Florida. Dr. Deane’s continued educational experiences have
allowed him to be fortunate to study under the two most prominent “Masterminds” in the art of
Manual Therapy, Dr. Phillip Greenman and Dr. James Dunning, receiving Certifications in
Manual and Spinal Manipulative Therapy from both Michigan State University and the Spinal
Manipulation Institute respectively. With his continued knowledge and growth a must, Dr. Deane
completed his doctoral residency at Arcadia University in Glenside, PA in May of 2011.

During his personal life, Daniel enjoys hobby’s that include playing: Beach Volleyball, Jet
Skiing, Boating/Fishing, Golfing, Jujitsu/Kick Boxing, Bike Riding, Chess, and Texas Hold’em.
He currently resides in the downtown Ft. Lauderdale area, where he has lived for 15 years with
his wife Lauri and son Leo 5yo. As a family, they enjoy going to Walt Disney World 3-4 times
per year and exploring the world together, always looking for new adventures on the horizon.

Here’s what some of our patients are saying:

With headaches and severe back pains with numbness, I was suffering sleepless nights. My life was a wreck having considerable fatigue and emotional problems. All of which has diminished since going to South Florida Physical Therapy Associates. I feel more energized and happy to have a good healthy attitude. All of which was provided in a professional and friendly manner.” Rudy T.

Thank you so much for the help with my sprained foot. I found the staff at South Florida Physical Therapy to be very knowledgeable, caring, and efficient. Your therapy made a tremendous difference in my ability to walk normally and without pain. Thank you all again for the wonderful service you offer this community.” Charlie V.

I will always be indebted to South Florida PT for their role in my recovery after knee replacement surgery. All of the staffs patience and positive attitude helped me immensely during the difficult and frustrating post-surgery process. Despite setbacks that occurred during my recovery, I was able to reach my goals because of their wealth of knowledge and skills. Danny is a true professional and a man of integrity and dedication. He went above and beyond expectations and treated my recovery as if it were his own. Today, I am back on the tennis court all thanks to him.” Doreen F.

I’ve been suffering with constant nagging back pains for fourteen years. It kept getting worse, and I was unable to do any normal activities without intense pain. My neurologist advised a surgical procedure to fuse two vertebrae. Since I wanted to avoid surgery, South Florida Physical Therapy Associates recommended an aggressive non-surgical approach. Now I feel healthy again! At the age of 33, I have so much of my life ahead of me and feel confident it will be pain free! Thanks so much for your help and caring!” Mike M.

My back pain is completely gone! Full range of motion restored! Very good experience. Well worth the time. Nice equipment, atmosphere and great staff.” Scott B.

Best results yet! I had tried MD’s, DO’s, Chiropractic, pills, etc. This has been the best plan I have found, I was afraid surgery was my only other option. I thought I would never feel normal again. I have not had any stiffness or tightness in my back since I have been working with Danny. I feel stronger, positive and more motivated than ever to keep up with my stretching exercises.” Colleen S.

For the past four years, I’ve been suffering with neck pains, numbness in my hands and headaches. I had been to several other clinics without getting any help. When I finally came here, they were able to correctly diagnose the problem and begin treatment. I feel so much better now and so very grateful to you all and will definitely recommend you to my friends and family.” Lisa G.

The atmosphere at South Florida Physical Therapy is pleasant. The therapists there are ever so vigilant to our well being, making sure we don’t over do. Since starting my therapy I feel energized-ready & rarin’ to go! Each new exercise is challenging. And as I feel and see the results of my progress, I look forward to my next session. I recommend this facility highly to anyone who needs therapy and really wants to feel better.” Henry P.

Four months post achilles tendon surgery I am further along than expected. I am now stronger and in far better shape than I was before my injury. Danny and his staff have made PT an enjoyable experience.” Dave L.
