Adam received his bachelor of science degree from VCU and then graduated from the VCU Medical College of Virginia School of Physical Therapy in 2007.

He became a board-certified orthopedic clinical specialist in 2016. He then obtained his certification in orthopedic manual therapy in 2019.
He has many years of diverse orthopedic physical therapy experience and enjoys treating varied orthopedic conditions including issues of the spine, shoulders, elbows, hips, knees and ankles as well as generalized balance issues / lower extremity weakness and post surgical orthopedic conditions.
His approach to patient care combines patient education with hands on manual therapy and neuromuscular reeducation to help promote improved mobility and motor control, ultimately resulting in improved function with decreased pain.
