Physiotherapist Tyler Chong Joins PhysioLife!

Another successful student practicum!  Tyler Chong joins the PhysioLife team!  PhysioLife is pleased to welcome Tyler Chong to our team of physiotherapists.  Tyler was introduced to the team while completing his final practicum earlier this year, and had so much fun learning and working with our therapists that he decided to join us permanently!

 Tyler holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology and a Master’s Degree in Physical Therapy from the University of British Columbia.  He has already completed Level 1 Advanced Orthopaedic Manual and Manipulative Therapy and the Mulligan Concept.  His thirst for knowledge continues, as he currently pursues his doctorate of Physical Therapy.

Tyler first chose to pursue a career in physiotherapy after working with various sports physiotherapists, which inspired him to further help the people around him.  He has always been passionate about sports medicine, health, and physical fitness, and holds an internationally recognized ACSM personal trainer certification.  He has volunteered as a weight training coach for Special Olympics Vancouver, and has worked as a lifeguard, personal trainer, and fitness instructor.  These opportunities have helped Tyler gain valuable experience creating customized exercise programs to help his clients’ achieve personal goals.  He himself has taken his love of training into competition, where he successfully won the BCPA 2015 Winter Open Bench Press competition for his age and weight class.

Throughout his career, Tyler has developed a keen interest in treating sport and work-related injuries.  He enjoys volunteering on the sidelines at various sporting events, including the 2017 Beach Volley Provincials.  Tyler is able to serve a variety of clientele as he can converse in his native English, and is also fluent in French and Cantonese.

Outside of the clinic, Tyler is an avid gym enthusiast with the hopes of competing again in power-lifting.  Tyler also enjoys playing the piano, basketball, kickboxing, and especially eating good food with his friends and family.

COVID 19 NOTICE

Update: March 11, 2022

Please note: The Provincial Government has removed the mask mandate for public spaces in BC.  Inside our clinic, we are requiring masks to be worn in common areas.  This is because a sizeable portion of our patients are elderly, immunocompromised, or in the highest risk levels.  Part of our responsibility as healthcare professionals is ensuring all patients have access to care – therefore we have a responsibility to ensure our environment is safe for everybody.  However, once you are inside a treatment room, masks can be taken off with mutual consent between a patient (yourself), and therapist.  This means if you want your therapist to wear a mask, they will.  If both you and your therapist would like to remove your masks, you may.  We think this is a compromise which can accommodate nearly everybody.

Just a reminder, despite COVID-19 cases declining in BC, there is still community transmission.  This means there is at least some risk of COVID-19 transmission at our clinic.

NEW: We have installed HEPA air purifiers inside each of our treatment rooms to further try to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Thank you for your continued support.  We hope everyone stays healthy.
