Adam received his Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) from Northern Arizona University (Flagstaff, AZ) in 2015. He believes that resolving a patient’s pain requires looking globally at movement quality of the whole body and individualizing treatments tailored towards the patient’s interests, goals, and activities. Adam utilizes an integrated approach to help restore stability and manage pain through both bottom up (foot/ankle) and top down (core) strategies. With manual therapy in conjunction with movement pattern retraining and strengthening, he has helped a variety of patients achieve their goals. Professional coursework incorporated into treatments includes athletic screens and manual treatments for the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine including manipulation.
In his free time, Adam enjoys surfing, trail running, hiking, and paddling. Prior to working as a PT, he was a conservation biologist working in both fisheries and land management. His passion for native plants is continued today through forest hikes and gardening.
