Sean Tickner

Clinician

seanSean studied Orthotics and Prosthetics at the Department of Sport, Rehabilitation and Dental Sciences at the Pretoria Technikon and qualified in 2003. He completed his internship at an accredited centre in Durban where he continued his career for 6 years before moving to Cape Town. He has been a part of the Chin & Partners family since 2010 and thrives on the many experiences that arise from working in a busy private practice in the Mother City.

Sean is an avid sportsman and have completed the Otter African Trail Running Race as well as the 2013 edition of the Absa Cape Epic. Sean has an intimate understanding of what the body goes through during high intensity sports and realises how demoralising it can be to be side-lined by injury. This is why he has a keen interest in gait analysis and custom manufactured foot orthotics for the running and cycling fraternity. His aim is to keep his patients running and riding injury free, with the added benefit of insider knowledge when it comes to trail running or mountain biking.

Sean also enjoys water sports and has competed at a national level in Body boarding, having achieved provincial colours for both Western Province and KZN. If you don’t find him in the Medsport Office at Vincent Pallotti Hospital, he’s probably out running or riding on the mountain or catching a wave.
