Chad Bergan, MPT


I own Dakota Physical Therapy with my wife, April. I was born in Bismarck, ND and graduated with my Master in Physical Therapy in 2003. After working for a few years and having two children we decided to purchase DPT in 2007. We have been hard at it ever since, working to build our practice and provide the best quality Physical Therapy in the Bismarck/Mandan area. I can be found on Tuesdays and Thursdays at our Mandan location and in Steele on Wednesdays. My specialties are in out-patient rehabilitation, running evaluations, nutrition, and supplementation. My goal is to help patients prevent disease, decrease chances of surgery, and get them back to their desired level of function. I love mountain biking, splitboarding and surfing behind the boat with my family!

After graduating from the University of Mary in 2008 with my Doctorate in Physical Therapy, I began working for our company, Dakota Physical Therapy. I now run the Touchmark clinic in Bismarck. I specialize in outpatient, geriatric, balance and aquatic therapy. I focus on restoring correct posture and movement in order to decrease pain and improve mobility. I currently live in Mandan, ND with my husband, Chad and our two children. In my spare time, I enjoy teaching a variety of exercise classes, snowboarding, wakesurfing, and mountain biking with my family.

I am originally from the Bismarck area and attended the University of North Dakota where I received my Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2005. Following graduation, I started working at Dakota Physical Therapy. I work mainly at the Mandan location and enjoy treating a variety of injuries including cervical pain, lumbar pain, arthritis conditions and any sports injury. Outside of work, I enjoy all hunting and fishing activities and spending time with my wife and two daughters.





Monica Lang, DPT


Hi there! I’m Monica Lang, a physical therapist here at Dakota Physical Therapy. I grew up right here in Bismarck, ND and I did my undergrad and graduate work at University of Mary. I received my Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2011. I began working at Dakota PT right after graduation. I spend most of my time out at our Steele clinic, though you can find me at Touchmark most Tuesdays and Thursdays. I enjoy treating patients who have a variety of orthopedic concerns, from foot to neck pain and everything in between. I love to see patients on land or in the pool. I also am certified to perform Functional Dry Needling. When I’m not busy at work you can find me out at our farm in Sterling, ND with my two kids and husband. Our spare time is spent playing at the farm with our dogs, hunting, baking or spending time with family.
