At Orthopedic & Sports Physical Therapy Center, we help people age 50+ live the active lifestyles they deserve — which means a life free from painkillers, expensive visits to doctors, and dangerous surgeries. We get you back to enjoying all of the things you love, without the fear of pain holding you back!

When something like chronic pain strikes in your knee, back, neck or shoulders, or if you experience an injury from sport or exercise, we know it’s very tempting to leave it and hope it’ll simply “go away on its own” with time and rest, but that’s usually not the case. Often, the longer you wait, the worse the pain ends up!

We also know it’s very easy to reach into the back of the cupboard for the painkillers and take them whenever pain strikes so it eases off fast — but all those painkillers are no good for your health long-term, and do nothing but mask the pain.

Or, maybe you’re left feeling confused and skeptical because you’ve sought advice from physical therapists in the past, and nothing they said or did seemed to help.

Can you relate?

  • Thought the pain would go away on its own — but it didn’t
  • Paid several visits to the doctor, only to be told to "rest" and "take some painkillers" — then weeks later went back to see the doctor again, only to be prescribed MORE rest and an even stronger dose of painkillers
  • Visited a physical therapist only to be handed a sheet of exercises, which did nothing to ease the pain
  • Tried a few YouTube exercises, but those exercises either didn't do a thing or aggravated the pain making it 10 times worse
  • Thought it would be a good idea to rest because the pain was so bad, but all that did was make the area even more stiff and tight
  • Have been told by a family member or friend that "everybody gets aches and pains as they get older" and you should accept that pain is "just a part of life"

Any of those sound familiar?

If any of these have happened to you, we would love to invite you to schedule a complimentary Discovery Session with one of our top-rate physical therapists, so we can help you. The fact that you’ve tried any or all of these things already, like many people we see, is actually a GOOD THING! When you know what doesn’t work, you are closer to finding the thing that does!

Click the link below to schedule a free Discovery visit. The session is free, and there is no obligation to book any appointments with us after! Our goal is to help you make the right decision about what to do next.

Note: Free Discovery Sessions are offered for individuals that are nervous or skeptical about Physical Therapy. So if you feel relatively hesitant, allow us to work together to find out what is wrong and what can be done. We are here for you!

About Bob Seton

Founder of Orthopedic & Sports Physical Therapy Center

Hi, I am Bob Seton, and welcome to my physical therapy practice. For the past 28 years my passion has remained the same: to take care of people in pain, restore their function after injuries and surgeries, and improve their quality of life. I started out with one office back in 1996. Over the past 23 years I have grown my practice in the three offices throughout the Okaloosa and Walton Counties.

I started out in Pennsylvania where I acquired a degree in biology from Juniata College. From there, I headed to Philadelphia and graduated with my Masters degree from Hahnemann University. Since then I have worked in every type of medical setting . I started treating brain injury patients and stroke patients at the renowned Bryn Mawr rehab hospital outside Philadelphia. From there I moved to acute care hospital‘s and skilled nursing facilities to assist the elderly and those recently admitted to the hospital. I finally found my passion when I started working in orthopedic clinics and for the past 24 years I have done only orthopedic work. During that time I volunteered for our political organization and sat on the Board of Directors for the Florida physical therapy association For six years.I have advanced training in every form of manual therapy that is currently practiced and I share that knowledge with each of my employees.

I have currently narrowed my expertise to pain medicine and have opened a concierge medical clinic call HOPE pain elimination in Miramar beach.

We love to help people:

  • Keep active — so you can run after your kids all day, take your grandchildren to the park with ease and enjoy a nice round of golf, run or walk anytime that suits you
  • Stay free from painkillers — so you're not always reaching in the cupboard for painkillers to ease the pain whenever it strikes — PLUS they're no good for your long-term health anyway, and don't actually do anything to fix the problem, just mask it 
  • Avoid dangerous surgery — we'll help you get to the root cause of what's going on quick—often inside 20 minutes, so you don't have to get to the point of having to face surgery to fix it
  • Found out what’s wrong — We'll help give you peace of mind and ensure that your problem is corrected and healed properly—and we will provide you with the perfect set of exercises that will speed up your recovery
  • Get more enjoyment out of life — so you can enjoy quality time with family and friends, and finally get a good night sleep without tossing and turning trying to find that one position that feels right

Basically, we love to help people get back to living life free from the curse of chronic pain!

What other people like you are saying about orthopedic & sports physical therapy center

LINDA — patient

Being a Snowbird, I had absolutely no idea of the Physical Therapists in the area. I began my search, read what was available, checked out the location, then called and made my initial appointment. I feel very blessed to have found Orthopedic & Sports PT Center. I am a senior back fusion patient who ended up with an infection and on a wound vac for 3 months. I felt my balance, posture, and strength had suffered. I am back home in Kentucky, have seen my surgeon, and received a good report. I have been very busy getting back in the groove of my life. I am so thankful to Bob for his hands on therapy and patience with me!

KENNY — patient

I am a 61 year old male who had a completely detached rotator cuff tear on by right shoulder. A surgeon at the Andrews Institute performed the reattachment surgery. I began physical therapy 4 weeks after my surgery date. My therapist educated me and assured  me that my rehab was safe, but challenged me and pushed me to succeed. What was supposed to be a 5-6 month rehab was completed in 2 1/2 months. I was about 80% back to normal at that point. I left with a great follow up plan they designed for me, and I stuck with it. Today I had my 6 month follow up visit, and I’m happy to report I am back to 100% strength and 95% range of motion.

JAY — patient

As a tennis player in my 70’s injuries occur — muscle pulls, back and neck strains, tendon tears. Bob Seton is a specialist in getting me back on the court, which is important, because I’m here on vacation to play tennis. When I left last year I had a wrist problem and couldn’t serve without severe pain. I had it treated at home in Michigan by leading sports doctors, and after treatments and injections it was still a major problem for me. Surgery was my next option. I said, “No way. I’ve seen too many cases where you can’t do anything after.” When I came back to Destin, I saw my miracle worker, Bob. After 4 treatments I was back on the court with almost pain free serving. He has a way of finding where the injury originated and then relieving the stress from that area. Thanks to Bob and his staff for letting the “Boomers” continue doing the things they love.
