David Shulman, PT

David received degrees from Cornell University in 1974 and the University of Maryland, Baltimore, School of Medicine, Department of Physical Therapy in 1978. While establishing his private practice, he was staff physical therapist at Greater Baltimore Medical Center. He then became the physical therapist specializing in head and neck cancer for the Milton J. Dance Head and Neck Cancer Center, working and training with some of the finest cancer surgeons in the country. He remains a consultant today. It was from this work that David progressed into therapy for TMJ, headaches (tension and migraine), and chronic pain relief. He has also patented a medical device (see Dynasplint Trismus System).

David’s personal interest in weight training and his belief that a regular exercise program is essential for optimum health maintenance led him to work with patients who have sports or other traumatic injuries and require rehabilitation. He is a consultant to fitness trainers, providing them with the medical expertise necessary to develop individualized exercise programs for recovering injured and post-surgery patients.

David is an instructor at the University of Maryland, Baltimore, School of Dentistry for the third year and post graduate students. He has lectured around the country at major hospitals, dental groups, and speech pathology graduate students at Loyola College in Maryland and WBAL radio. He speaks on such topics as headache, TMJ, soft tissue pain and injury, and oral cancer.

His personal experiences as a professional woodwind musician from New York have provided him with the knowledge, understanding and motivation required to help heal musicians from the many physical difficulties of repetitive play. As athletes, musicians can develop chronic overuse injuries as a direct result of long and arduous play schedules. Multiple studies report that approximately 70% of all professional musicians will incur an overuse injury and be forced to stop playing for a period of time. Some musicians may never recover. Overuse injuries range from lips to lower back and all parts in between. David and the team at Shulman & Associates have accurately diagnosed and treated ailing musicians from disciplines from all over the world.

David is a frequent lecturer on the subject of musician injuries and he takes great pleasure in sharing his understanding of the biomechanics of the Musician Athlete. By utilizing a variety of treatment modalities as well as assessing body mechanics and body posture, he is able to promote and resolve the presented injuries. Since 2010 David has been a Summer Academy Enrichment Instructor for the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra Academy. He is also a member of the Peabody Music and Medicine Task Force.

His lifelong interest in body mechanics, his keen mind, and a deep compassion for others are the foundations of David’s practice today. In this age of managed health care, he has chosen to keep his office as patient-friendly as possible, and is committed to providing his patients with the finest hands-on physical therapy available.
