Meet Sean Lordan of Concierge Physical Therapy

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sean Lordan.

Sean, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
My decision to become a Doctor of Physical Therapy began with my Aunt Mary Lou. She was injured in a car accident in her 20’s, and subsequently sustained a Spinal Cord Injury. With access to today’s medicine and top-notch rehabilitation, she would have recovered 100%. Unfortunately, the doctors were unable to curtail the swelling to her spinal cord and she was left to chronically ambulate with Lofstrand Crutches. If I could help even one other person in my Aunt’s predicament, becoming a PT would be worth it.

Consequently, I began my journey to receive my Undergraduate Degree in Rehabilitation Science, and Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Northeastern University in Boston, as well as a Specialty Certification in Strength and Conditioning (for athletes), and a Board Certification in Orthopedics currently awarded to < 5% of practicing PT’s.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
There have certainly been struggles along the way. Many folks challenge the concept of out-of-network PT services and would prefer the “traditional” experience of going to an in-network provider. There are Pro’s and Con’s to each type of practice. A quick “Pro” to an out-of-network practice is that the PT is more likely to offer 1:1 care for as long as a patient needs in order to facilitate within session change.

A “Con” would be that the patient may have to pay out of pocket (if they don’t have access to an HSA or have a high deductible.) A “Pro” for an in-network practice is that most often it is equipped with all sorts of equipment to help a patient through an exercise regimen etc. A “Con” of an in-network PT clinic is that you may experience less 1:1 time with the PT you’re working with due to demands on their time from other patients.

In order to maintain an exceptional customer experience in the city, I’ve kept an out-of-network practice. However, I’m currently preparing to open up my first physical location in Sutton, MA in Spring of 2018, and will accept most insurances on an in-network basis.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Concierge Physical Therapy – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
