Sean received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of California Irvine. He was first exposed to physical therapy when he injured his knees and ankles in high school while playing basketball at Costa Mesa High School. Soon after this, he began to have a passion for the profession.
He left Southern California to obtain a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Sacred Heart University in Conn., where he was awarded the Silver Medal of Excellence and was a member of the Honor Society.
He continued his education with a residency program in orthopedic physical therapy and obtained an advanced orthopedic physical therapy certificate. During his residency program he also served as a clinical instructor and supervised two first-year doctoral students.
In 2015, he contributed to two articles in the professional journal Topics in Geriatric Rehabilitation. The first paper was Ankle and Foot Manual Therapy for Aging and Older Adults and the second was Cervical Spine Manual Therapy for Aging and Older Adults. In addition, he has given numerous presentations and participated in various continuing education opportunities.
Sean is primarily interested in the prevention and rehabilitation of spine and musculoskeletal issues by incorporating functional fitness into evidenced-based treatment programs. He believes that designing home exercise programs that mimic every day activities helps speed the strengthening, conditioning, and rehab process.
A secondary focus is sports performance, injury prevention, and rehabilitation for youth and student athletes. Based on his own experience, Sean advocates for the role physical therapy can play in helping young athletes reach their maximum potential through proper form and training, as well as, returning them to sport following an injury, in the safest and quickest time frame possible.
Having taken a variety of post-graduate courses dealing with injuries caused by overuse and misuse, he is uniquely qualified to educate and design individualized programs for these athletes and their growing bodies. Baseball players, in particular, are a growing concern in the sports medicine field because of the rise of overuse and misuse injuries specifically in pitches. Proper biomechanics whether it’s for baseball players, swimmers, lacrosse players or any other sport, holds particular interest for Sean.
In his spare time, Sean enjoys spending time with his wife, Julie. They enjoy going to the beach, bike riding, swimming, traveling, and trying new restaurants. Sean also enjoys watching the LA Lakers and LA Dodgers. He speaks fluent Korean.
