Tyson believes that the key to successful Physical Therapy is understanding how the body functions when his clients are performing daily activities and sports related activities. Tyson’s treatment philosophy includes dissecting the true etiology of the diagnosis. This is a specialty which he focuses on in order to help both his acute and chronic patients identify the origin of their injury.
Tyson has been a PT for almost 18 years, earning his degree in Physical Therapy in 1997 from University of Illinois at Chicago. In 2009, He was certified in Manual Therapy from North American Institute of Manual Therapy (NAIOMT) which requires an additional 30 months of training. Tyson is active in the running community and coaches runners, helping them run more efficiently, improving their times, and overall running mechanics through video analysis, education, and specific running/balance/strengthening drills.
In his spare time, Tyson enjoys running, doing yoga, and CrossFit. Aside from his physical health, he finds balance in his mental health through collecting and listening to vinyl records from all over the world. In addition, he travels to the places where each record came from to truly understand and experience the music. He has been collecting records since he was 13 years old but more recently records from Brazil are amongst his favorite!
