Bob Seton: Orthopedic And Sports Physical Therapy
Bob Seton, the owner of Orthopedic and Sports Physical Therapy, in Destin, is a physical therapist specializing in orthopedic pathology. Seton earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from Juniata College, in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, and a master’s degree in physical therapy from Hahnemann University, in Philadelphia.
They treat pain and loss of function associated with arthritis, injuries, fractures and surgery. He says, “We are different from all other physical therapy clinics because our therapists still do massage and joint mobilizations of the spine and extremities. We also offer an extremely powerful approach to pain elimination that no one else offers, providing relief in one to four visits.”
Seton asserts that 80 percent of his patients will see a 50 percent reduction in symptoms on the first visit. He says, “I am passionate about providing patients with the most comprehensive approach to treating their pain. The philosophy that I use takes into consideration the entire body and all of its tissues. We assess muscle, tendon, nerve and joint mobility, as well as the central nervous systems control of each.”
He believes that although we were born to be pain-free, many people unfortunately think that pain must be expected and tolerated as we age. Seton says, “I’m committed to practicing proven, cutting-edge techniques, the positive effects of which I continue to witness in the hundreds of patients I have treated.”
