19 - Dr. Seth Oberst

Dr. Seth Oberst (@sethoberst) is a physical therapist who currently practices in Atlanta, GA.  Seth received his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Ohio University and has undergone extensive post-graduate training through an APTA-credentialed residency culminating in board certification in Sports Physical Therapy. He is also a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association.

Seth is passionate about providing a holistic approach to rehabilitation, wellness, and performance. He believes that in order to fully recover and experience one’s life we must refine our habits and ability to move well. At its core, his treatment philosophy is to reduce the rigidity, stiffness, and pain that comes from stress, trauma, or injury. When stressed or injured our movement begins to become “stuck” and painful with the inability to move and perform how we want. Seth is able to help clients change their movement and behavioral patterns by altering how they feel and perceive their environment. In learning new ways of moving, clients are able to become more adaptable and less “stuck” in a painful state.

Seth is sought by a diverse population of clients from those with chronic pain, fibromyalgia, fatigue syndromes, and stress-related dysfunction to competitive amateur, CrossFit, professional, and Olympic athletes with orthopedic injuries and performance loss. He also works as an Injury Prevention and Performance Consultant for The US Olympic Bobsled and Skeleton teams and several CrossFit affiliates.

In addition to his clinical practice, Seth has performed and presented research on motor control and fatigue at national conferences for clinician scientists, provides continuing education for healthcare professionals, and regularly consults with fellow physiotherapists and coaches. He maintains a thriving website, SethOberst.com, where he writes frequently on clinical topics.
