Seth Olson, DPT, OCS

Seth was born in Burlington, IA and raised in rural Henderson County, IL. He and his wife Brittny have 3 children, Isla, Silas and Sebastion. He received his undergraduate degree in finance from Western Illinois University and his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Des Moines University in 2011.

Outside of work he enjoys being outdoors, traveling/exploring, exercising, projects and spending time with his wife and children.

Seth’s favorite part of being a physical therapist is establishing relationships with patients and providing them with the resources and knowledge they need to regain their function and achieve their goals. He can often be found assisting patients outside the clinic as well as in the long-term and skilled care settings.


Sean West, DPT

Sean grew up in rural western Iowa on an acreage near Yale where he learned the value of hard work and integrity from his parents and grandparents.  He completed his Bachelor of Science degree at Iowa State University and his Master’s degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Iowa.  Upon completion of his graduate degree, he moved to Burlington to pursue a career as a physical therapist.  Shortly after starting his career, he completed his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from St. Ambrose University.  He has practiced in his chosen profession since 2001 and has gained experience primarily in outpatient orthopedics but also has experience in inpatient, nursing home, and home health settings.

When he’s not treating patients, Sean enjoys being outside biking, kayaking, ATVing, and completing home improvement projects inside and out.  He and his wife raise a large garden for supplying friends and family with fresh produce and for canning.  Sean also enjoys landscape construction projects where he maintains an appreciation for manual labor and the importance of safety and proper body mechanics which has proven helpful in treating and understanding patients with injuries sustained on and off the job.

One of his greatest joys as a physical therapist is to play a part in assisting patients/clients back to their prior level of function or even improve upon it, so they can live their best lives.
