SEAN OVERIN, BHK, MPT, DPT

PHYSIOTHERAPY EDUCATOR

From an early age, Sean has always enjoyed being physically active and learning about human science, which first inspired him to study and obtain a Bachelors of Human Kinetics from the University of British Columbia (UBC). On a journey for more knowledge, Sean went on to complete a Masters of Physical Therapy from UBC and more recently a Doctorate of Physical Therapy with the Evidence in Motion Institute of Health Professionals. In addition, Sean has his Certificate in Anatomical Acupuncture.

In clinic, Sean facilitates an educational, evidence-based, and client-centered experience treating a variety of conditions with a diverse set of manual therapy and exercise interventions. Although, he has special interests in pain science, neck and low back disorders, cervicogenic and tension-type headaches, and upper extremity conditions. In addition to clinical practice, Sean enjoys discussing, teaching, and challenging current practice trends based on the best available evidence. To do so, Sean co-authors evidence-based practice summaries on various topics in orthopedic physiotherapy for the Physiotherapy Association of British Columbia's magazine Directions. Recent publications include assessment and treatment of lumbar spinal stenosis, hip osetoarthritis, lateral epicondylagia, and lower extremity injury prevention. In addition, Sean mentors and facilitates clinical rotations for UBC's Physical Therapy program students.

Beyond the exciting world of physiotherapy, you can find Sean mountain biking on the trails of the North Shore to Squamish, at the gym or in yoga. He also enjoys traveling, spending time with his wife, family, and friends.
