He specializes in treating patients whose current conditions are limiting. He helps patients find solutions to the cause of their pain, dysfunction, their lack of strength, and he helps them restore their enjoyable, flexible and active bodies.  Dr. Gometz also specializes in Concussion Management and runs Concussion Management of NY.  He is an avid triathlete and father of 4.

Zach Dange

Zach is dedicated to helping people move better. He loves assisting them in becoming more capable humans. Whether your goal is to maximize performance or to just live a healthier life, he believes that sound, pain free movement is the foundation. This philosophy is something he has developed both from working with his patients and dealing with his own injuries throughout life. As a distance runner earlier in life and an avid CrossFitter now, he has had a fair share of aches and pains that have been resolved by working on moving well. Though the reference point is always the quality of movement, his approach is using any method that works to achieve the desired outcome. Zach is continually working to expand that toolbox of techniques to help patients heal and improve, and learning how to make those techniques applicable to a variety of populations. He has worked with youth athletes, high school athletes, collegiate athletes, theater performers, construction workers, and patients of all ages and activity levels. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Athletic Training and Kinesiology from Miami University and a Master’s in Kinesiology with a specialization in Athletic Training from Indiana University, along with numerous specializations and certifications. Zach is excited to to join the Prehab team and looks forward to growing together.
