Creator and Lead Instructor

Peak Pain School is the website for Shawn K. Everson, PT, DPT, OCS, MTC.

Dr. Everson has over 34 years’ experience working primarily with a wide variety of patients dealing with chronic pain. It has been his mission to help improve the lives of people with his comprehensive approach to physical therapy, and guiding patients to other care providers who often have other key pieces to the patient’s puzzle.

PEAK SPORT and SPINE REHAB: Dr. Everson merged his original physical therapy practice with PEAK Sport and Spine Rehab in 2013. He is the Clinic Director at PEAK Sport and Spine Rehab – Mid County located at Ballas and Hwy 40/I-64 near I-270. Most of Dr. Everson’s work is done through PEAK, but he also maintains a small separate service, Options in Physical Rehabilitation, LLC through which he see patients that find they need and want more than what can be provided through the managed care systems.

PEAK works extensively within the managed care/Medicare system. The vast majority of patients are well served in this system, particularly with PEAK. But there are always significant limitations to what any physical therapy provider can do within the substantial financial limitations of the managed care/Medicare system.

It has long been Dr. Everson’s opinion that patients need a choice, an “Option”, to receive more care, in longer sessions, from an exceptionally skilled/experienced physical therapist outside the limitations of the system. These services are offered by Dr. Everson, at times under the PEAK umbrella, for others under Options in Physical Rehabilitation.

Why Use Options in Physical Rehabilitation?

The answer is very simple. If you need and want more time with one-to-one care with an exceptionally well trained and experienced physical therapist, that time has to be paid for somehow. The common healthcare/managed care system is built on providing whatever care...

What Patients Say About Shawn Everson

The pain in my lower legs was almost unbearable, so I decided to get help. My son recommended Dr. Shawn Everson, so I decided to give it a try. Three months later; the difference is like night and day. I hardly have any leg pain now. I’m able to sit and concentrate on work. Thanks Dr. Everson!


L.M.; Spanish Lake, MO


In only six sessions with Everson Orthopedic, my lower back on the right side was no longer a problem. Dr. Everson found I had an unnatural curvature in my spine, worked diligently on it, and gave me the correct exercises to use following my routine exercise. I’m back at full strength.


E.S.; Sunset Hills, MO

My experience with Dr. Shawn Everson was most rewarding! I began therapy for a TMJ problem. He was extremely knowledgeable about the muscles and the workings of the jaw. I am now capable of eating (normal food) without having pain in my jaw.
Many thanks!
