Eric Adams was hired as a physical therapist assistant at his father's practice, Adams Rehab Solutions.
When Eric Adams, the son of Palm Coast physical therapist Tom Adams, was searching for his first physical therapy internship, he didn’t bother to look at home.
“When I first started, I didn’t want to come work for him right away,” said Adams, who was a student in Daytona State College’s physical therapy assistant program at the time. “I kind of just wanted to get experience somewhere else.”
Eventually, that changed.
The 27-year-old Adams, who was a Marine for four years before graduating from Daytona State in May, was recently hired by his father as a physical therapist assistant at the family practice, Adams Rehab Solution, located in Suite 500 at 210 Old Kings Road S.
“It was kind of a no-brainer,” the younger Adams said. “I was ready to come here and join the family business right off the bat.”
The elder Adams said his son has brought a fresh perspective to the 10-year-old practice.
“He’s got a great knowledge base,” the 57-year-old father of four said. “He has a little more updated stuff. It’s kind of fun to watch. It’s always great when you’re working with one of your kids and they’re enjoying what they’re doing. It’s a lot of fun that you won’t realize unless you’re a dad and you get to do it.”
