A native of Lakewood, New Jersey, Jordan Seda’s first introduction to the power of physical therapy came not as a graduate student, but as a patient. As a three-sport varsity letterman who struggled with ankle issues, he spent a lot of time in the athletic trainer’s office. “Once I realized how skilled, therapeutic care allowed me to continue to perform at a high level, I grew inspired to pursue a career in physical therapy” he says.
He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science and Sport Studies from Rutgers University, eventually earning his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Columbia University. These areas of study proved to be the melding of two passions, biomechanics and orthopedic therapies. “They gave me the tools to understand how the body moves, why it moves the way it does and the best ways to keep it all moving at an optimum level” he says.
Jordan actively strives to have as heavy a caseload as possible. He enjoys the excitement of treating patients at all levels, from all walks of life, and says the exposure makes him a better doctor. He further adds that “from infant-specific orthopedic disorders to geriatric acute care, I enjoy the challenge of solving complex cases.”
A self-described foodie who’s always had a passion for travel, he completed internships at Athletico Physical Therapy in Chicago, the Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Center in San Diego and several NYC based clinics. He has also gone on to complete Functional Mobilization I through the Institute of Physical Art.
