About Todd Davenport

Dr. Davenport worked in Los Angeles as a physical therapist prior to coming to Pacific, working with patients including athletes, women and men with pelvic pain, and injured workers. At the same time, he worked part-time at the University of Southern California as an adjunct faculty in the Doctor of Physical Therapy and Orthopaedic Physical Therapy Residency programs. 

Dr. Davenport is a native Oregonian. He takes pleasure in Stockton's weather, its diversity, friendliness, and central location. He likes University of the Pacific for its close student-teacher interaction and for the fact that the University has the advantages of a big school despite being a small campus. Dr. Davenport is married with three children. He enjoys outdoor activities with his family, including hiking, snowshoeing, and gardening.
