A native of Lakewood, New Jersey, Jordan Seda’s first introduction to the power of physical therapy came not as a graduate student, but as a patient. As a three-sport varsity letterman who struggled with ankle issues, he spent a lot of time in the athletic trainer’s office. “Once I realized how skilled, therapeutic care allowed me to continue to perform at a high level, I grew inspired to pursue a career in physical therapy” he says. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science and Sport Studies from Rutgers University, eventually earning his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Columbia University. These areas of study proved to be the melding of two passions, biomechanics and orthopedic therapies. “They gave me the tools to understand how the body moves, why it moves the way it does and the best ways to keep it all moving at an optimum level” he says. Jordan actively strives to have as heavy a caseload as possible. He enjoys the excitement of treating patients at all levels, from all walks of life, and says the exposure makes him a better doctor. He further adds that “from infant-specific orthopedic disorders to geriatric acute care, I enjoy the challenge of solving complex cases.” A self-described foodie who’s always had a passion for travel, he completed internships at Athletico Physical Therapy in Chicago, the Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Center in San Diego and several NYC based clinics. He has also gone on to complete Functional Mobilization I through the Institute of Physical Art.

When not treating patients, Kenan is often at the gym, loves soccer (especially FC Bayern Munich) and is an avid cook.

Marina Yerovinkina earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy with Honors from Columbia University, where she completed the Advanced Track in Orthopedics and was introduced to the world of dance medicine. Prior to discovering physical therapy, Marina explored different avenues, which included earning a BA in Environmental studies from NYU. Her background in Dance, however, followed by the study of Martial Arts, inevitably cultivated an ardor for the study of physical movement. Through ballet and modern dance she developed an awareness of her own body, and the myriad of ways it can move. Aikido in turn, – Marina’s first martial art of choice – contributed a growing understanding of how to affect the movements of others. Together, these were a springboard to a professional commitment to helping patients become more attuned to their own bodies. Integrating all of her experience, she believes that helping patients understand their injury better on an intellectual level enables them to avoid recurrence, leading to long term physical health. Marina’s mission is clear: to show people how they can regain control over their body. So the payoff comes when a patient integrates the information they learned the previous session, and applies that knowledge to their own body. They are physically and mentally engaged in their own health transformation. These days Marina continues to practice Aikido, but tries to branch out and continue adding to her repertoire of movement through other activities such as rock climbing, snowboarding, kickboxing and more.

Julie Ehrlich believes in the power of personalized manual therapy and therapeutic exercise to ensure an effective and efficient return from injury. She values her relationships with patients and is dedicated to working with them from the time of injury to their return to a higher level of function. Her goal is to provide tangible results of progress as quickly as possible by implementing evidence-based techniques and exercises. Julie’s interest in physical therapy stems from her participation in a two day bike ride to raise funds for wounded military veterans. She was inspired by these men and women, observing their persistent hard work, optimistic outlooks and refusal to give up. This led her to research projects strengthening protocols for individuals with lower extremity amputations. Julie earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Columbia University specializing in orthopedic rehabilitation. During her time there, she volunteered at the university’s pro bono medical clinic, as well as participated in a service trip to Guatemala where she treated patients, educated students and helped build wheelchairs for those in need. She has also had clinical affiliations with several professional baseball teams where she became skilled in on-the-field assessments and taking an athlete through rehab from acute injury to re-entering the game. With her background in sports, she understands that physical therapy does not end when the injury has healed. It takes patience and cooperation to rehab past the point of injury, to prevent recurrence.
