  • Dan Cushman, M.D., is board-certified in both Sports Medicine and Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, and specializes in the care of musculoskeletal injuries in both athletes & non-athletes, musculoskeletal ultrasound, electrodiagnostics, and endurance sports-specific injuries with a particular interest in runners, cyclists, swimmers, triathletes, and climbers. He cares for all levels of athletes, from the weekend warrior to Olympic athletes and has a niche expertise in nerve disorders of the arms or legs in athletes. His conservative approach revolves around using exercise as medicine and avoiding medications whenever possible.

    He serves as the team physician for the University of Utah Track & Field and Cross-Country teams and is also the team physician for the University of Utah Swimming and Diving teams. He completed his residency in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation in Chicago, IL at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (Northwestern University), where he served as chief resident, then completed a fellowship in Sports Medicine at the University of Utah. Dr. Cushman is active in research and is the director of Non-Operative Sports Medicine Research at the University of Utah, with interests including sports epidemiology and musculoskeletal ultrasound for the treatment/prevention of musculoskeletal disorders.

    Outside of work, he is active in endurance sports and has 3 children.
