“His dedication to the profession, his patients, and Foothills has been amazing!” – Jeff Moyer, Owner
Foothills Sports Medicine is proud to have a staff of talented and dedicated professionals who are deeply involved their patients’ recoveries. Each month we honor a therapist who embodies Foothills Sports Medicine’s high standard of quality and integrity, and this month we shine the spotlight on Jonathan Seidberg from Foothills Sports Medicine’s Biltmore physical therapy location.
“For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to be in the business of helping others,” says Jonathan. It only made sense for him to follow his heart to become a physical therapist.
Jonathan grew up in Phoenix where his love for helping others grew. He studied to be a physical therapist and graduated from A.T. Still University in Mesa. In March of 2015, he joined the Foothills Sports Medicine family and he’s been a dedicated member of the team ever since.
The Foothills Sports Medicine team is just one big family, and Jonathan loves the comradery and communication between the therapists and techs that work there. A typical day for him involves working with a number of clients with all types of musculoskeletal disorders, and of course, filling out paper-work documenting the day’s activities.
Being a true go-getter, Jonathan spends time discussing case scenarios with his colleagues and researching how to improve upon his own skills and knowledge to be the absolute best clinician possible. It’s his goal to gain more specialized credentials such as becoming an orthopedic certified specialist.
As a suggestion to someone interested in entering the field, he notes that the best route for determining which branch of physical therapy one wishes to pursue would be to intern or volunteer in multiple settings. “There are so many possibilities within the realm of physical therapy,” he says, “and it’s important to get an idea of all of them to find what is best for you.”
Jonathan’s work ethic and determination to constantly better himself, and to provide the best possible care make him an invaluable member of the Foothills’ Biltmore physical therapy team.
