Adam Powell is from Newport News, Virginia. He came to Richmond, VA in 1999 to attend Virginia Commonwealth University where he fell in love with a beautiful girl named Erin who became his wife and the mother of two daughters, Jane Melody and Ellie Page.
Adam received his Bachelor of Science degree from VCU and then graduated from the VCU / Medical College of Virginia (MCV) School of Physical Therapy in 2007. Adam joined Rehab Plus Associates in 2007, having interned there as a student, then he transitioned with Rehab Plus Associates to ultimately work for Pivot Physical Therapy in 2017.
He is an active member of the Virginia Physical Therapy Association and American Physical Therapy Association, including a membership in the orthopedic section. He obtained his board certification in Orthopedic Physical Therapy in 2016. He has many years of diverse orthopedic physical therapy experience and enjoys treating varied orthopedic conditions including issues of the spine, shoulders, hips, knees, ankles and elbows as well as balance issues, generalized weakness and post-surgical conditions. His approach to patient care combines patient education with hands on manual therapy and neuro-muscular reeducation (that is brain to muscle learning) to promote improved mechanical ability (how much we can move) as well as motor control (how well we can move) optimally resulting in overall improved function with decreased pain.
He lives locally in the Bon Air area and enjoys spending time outdoors at the pool and beach with his family as well as playing the drums and playing with his remote control car (which goes 30 mph)!
Adam holds Direct Access Certification and is available to evaluate and treat patients without a prescription from a physician.
