Dana, like most chiropractors, was introduced to chiropractic through a first-hand experience. When he was a 14-year-old football player he was impaled in the back during an afternoon practice. The pain was immediate but tolerable. However, like many injuries, the real issues manifested when Dana started losing the ability to perform routine activities. Walking, running, sleeping, and even sneezing became a chore for an otherwise active 14-year-old. The pain of running across the football field was too debilitating to continue playing and it soon became clear this wasn't something that would just go away.

After various forms of treatment ranging from physical therapy to pain medicine, a teammate's father recommended chiropractic care. After only a few treatments, Dana was up and running at the same level as before.​

Dana initially left the Northwest to study biology and play baseball at the University of Hawaii and graduated with his Doctor of Chiropractic from Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon. In addition to the chiropractic degree, he became a certified Neuromuscular Release Masseuse, led a two-year term as President of the Sports Medicine Club; and is an extremely passionate advocate of CrossFit.
