Tyson enjoys working with a variety of patients from athletes to the elderly. He is also interested in educating people on ergonomics, teaching them how to move correctly and restore function through individualized home exercise programs emphasizing longevity.
“Today, people have sedentary or repetitive jobs and lifestyles which force them to move a certain way for a large portion of their lives causing dysfunction. My goal is to help educate people in a non-biased and informative way in how to offset the daily repetitive or sedentary nature of life and the work force through education and movement.”
