Shawn C. Adams, PT, DPT
Shawn attended the University of the Ozarks in Clarksville where he graduated in 2002 with a Bachelor’s in Biology and a Minor in Health. He was a 4-year letterman in baseball at the U of O and was named to the American Southwest All-Conference team in 3 consecutive seasons and an Academic All-American in 2002. Years of participating in sports led to injuries along the way which led him to gaining an interest and choosing a career in Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine. In 2006 he earned his Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Central Arkansas in Conway. Since graduating from UCA he has lived in Northwest Arkansas working in the outpatient orthopedic setting. In 2011, he worked with Dr. Powell to establish the Physical Therapy and Sports Rehab clinic at Powell Orthopedics.
Dr. Adams is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association, the Arkansas Chapter of the APTA and the Sports Physical Therapy section of the APTA and attends yearly continuing education courses, focusing on orthopedic and sports related topics. Shawn has extensive experience treating many types of patients from professional and Olympic athletes to everyday individuals. He has worked with several of the area’s high schools including the Fayetteville Bulldogs, Shiloh Christian Saints, and Bentonville Tigers, in addition to assisting the University of Arkansas with on-field coverage. Shawn enjoys spending his free time chasing his 9 year old son, Austin, from one sport to the next, as well as working out, watching football, and trying to stay as active as possible. From the athletes of NWA, to the grandparents that watch them play, Shawn enjoys helping every patient that walks through our door.
