Seaton Do, Owner, Physical Therapist

MPT, CAFS, CSCS, NG360 GPS
Seaton grew up in Connecticut in a big family, being the youngest of 7 children.  He was introduced to physical therapy at a young age after injuring his knee playing football.  After experiencing the process first hand and how it helped to get him back to the activities he loved, it became clear that physical therapy was path for him.  Seaton loved the blend of knowledge in science and movement, meeting and interacting with all different types of people and most importantly seeing the transformations of people and having a huge impact on their recovery from injury.  He went on to earn his Master's Degree of Physical Therapy in 2003 at Quinnipiac University, in Connecticut.  

After college, Seaton decided it was a time for a change so he packed his things and moved to San Diego, California.  He gravitated towards the active community and wanted to be able to help them more than traditional means of physical therapy, the way he was taught in school.  He felt there had to be other ways to understand how people were getting injured and why some injuries kept reoccurring.  This feeling of wanting to get more out of himself to better help others started his journey towards Function.  Seaton was introduced to Applied Functional Science in 2006 and to Functional Movement Systems in 2008.  At that point he felt he finally had the knowledge to match his passion to improve the way people moved, prevent injuries and help people reach their full potentials.

While in California Seaton met his wife, who is an Oklahoma native.  It was about time for another big change so in 2012 they relocated and moved to Edmond Oklahoma.  Seaton was quick to learn and see there was a large active community in Oklahoma.  He immediately realized Oklahoma needed alternative to traditional rehabilitation by using a functional and biomechanical approach to rehabilitation, injury prevention and sports performance.  Seaton wanted to share his experience, expertise and functional approach to the active community in Oklahoma.  So after years of dreaming and planning, Function Physical Therapy was opened in 2015.      

Seaton lives in Edmond with his wife, daughter and son.  His interests outside of work include spending time with his family, cooking, running, golf, working out, living and promoting a healthy lifestyle.

Carley Schick, Physical Therapist

DPT, CSCS
Carley grew up in Tyler, Texas as part of a very physically active family.  She played collegiate volleyball and learned a great deal about the physical demands of high level athletics as well as the importance of "good form" to prevent injury and promote optimal performance.  Carley was introduced to physical therapy in high school by an aunt who is a physical therapist.  She immediately felt a passion for physical therapy after seeing how closely physical therapists are able to work with their patients and the significant changes seen in patients' lives after completing a therapy plan. 

After completing her undergraduate degree in Kinesiology from Midwestern State University, Carley pursued her Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree from the University of Oklahoma, graduating in 2012.  Her interest in exercise, as well as her desire to help the active population, led her to pursue and attain her Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) certification in 2012.  With her CSCS she is able to help patients do more than recover from their injury.  She enjoys helping improve performance in specific physical activities.

Upon graduating with her doctoral degree from the University of Oklahoma, Carley has worked in orthopedic physical therapy in both the outpatient and hospital settings.  She is very familiar with numerous orthopedic injuries and postoperative rehabilitation methods.  She enjoys seeing her patients return to the activities they love and helping them achieve their functional goals.

Carley lives in Edmond with her three rescue dogs and enjoys spending time with friends, running, weight lifting, reading, and a variety of arts and craft projects.
