“I believe that medicine is my calling. It is my sincere pleasure to help patients in the pursuit of restoring or maximizing function as well as minimizing the risk of injury and illness.”

Dr. Howard is board certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation with a certificate of added qualification in sports medicine.

He received the Red Sash Award for outstanding faculty and the Teaching Excellence Award from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS).

Dr. Howard has a clinical interest in non-operative orthopedic care to treat arthritis, painful joints, nerve pain and sports injuries. These treatments include activity modification, therapeutic exercise, bracing, orthotics and ultrasound-guided procedures.

He decided he wanted to be a sports medicine doctor when he was 12 years old. His primary training in physical medicine and rehabilitation focused on restoring and maximizing function after illness and injury, which is foundational to his approach in caring for patients.

Dr. Howard received his medical degree at the University of the West Indies.

He is married with a son, and he enjoys biking, hiking, water sports and reading historical fiction.
