Adam Whitman is a physical therapist practicing in Bellevue, WA where he specializes in nerve based issues and scar tissue problems. His deep fascination with the human body-mind has brought him to his true passion of educating people about their inner workings. He believes that the only way to reach full potential in personal, professional, and relational life is by approaching one’s own health and wellness proactively, which isn’t possible without understanding what health and wellness really mean.
Therefore, his personal mission is to teach as many people as he can about the vital importance of being body aware, the mechanisms of function and dysfunction, and how to empower people into taking control of what’s going inside the complex masterpiece that is the human body.
His Twitter handle is @Nerd4Health, but he hasn’t yet taken his passion to the larger forums of social media and the general public. While this will start to change in the near future, currently he can be reached at Adam.WhitmanPT@gmail.com with any questions you may have.
