Courteous staff, excellent PTs, flexible scheduling. I highly recommend TexPTS. Excellent outcome with my shoulder therapy. Injuries happen; when anyone in my family needs a PT in the future, they’re headed to TexPTS!
The therapy I have received at Texas Physical Therapy Specialists is first rate in every regard. The entire team is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and compassionate. I have already made significant improvement in just three weeks.
I have had a great experience with everyone at Texas Physical Therapy Specialists. Such a friendly, laid back, and encouraging environment. They are on top of their game, and you can tell by the way they greet patients, work with them, and manage their team.
The folks at TexPTS are caring, thoughtful, and very professional. They truly care about your injury and want you to get better! I would recommend them highly to anyone in need of physical therapy!
The therapists, are very nice, friendly, knowledgeable, and encouraging. Their assistants and the office staff are equally as nice and friendly. The facility is clean and spacious. All this together makes for a very pleasant rehab experience!

Meet the Staff
Dr. Tyler Adams graduated with his Bachelors of Science in Exercise Physiology from The University of Tennessee at Martin, before attending University of St. Augustine in Austin, Texas where he graduated with his Doctorate of Physical Therapy. Tyler continued his education through Evidence in Motion to become a board certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist.
During his time at University of St. Augustine, he coached for Orangetheory Fitness in the north Austin area and continues to coach occasionally on the weekends.

In his spare time, Tyler enjoys exploring Austin’s local parks with his dog Zazu and trying to eat anything a food truck will throw his way!

He is also passionate about and experienced in treating chronic pain, headaches, and dizziness and vertigo disorders. His favorite part of being a physical therapist, however, isn’t treating conditions and body regions—it’s treating and developing relationships with people of all walks of life. A former U.S. Army Infantryman, James is also passionate about caring for service-members, veterans, and their families.
He enjoys exercise, sports, outdoor activities in the beautiful hill country, and spending time with his friends, family, and especially his wife, Morgan and son, Sawyer.
