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.

Update: July 1, 2021

As the Province of BC enters Step 3 of the restart plan, things will mostly remain status quo at PhysioLife.  Changes are as follows:

  1. based on guidelines published by the College of Massage Therapists of BC, masks inside massage treatment rooms are no longer mandatory.  Masks do not need to be worn if and only if both patient and therapist mutually agree.  If you would like your therapist to wear a mask, they will.  If your therapist would like their patients to wear a mask, we kindly ask for your cooperation.  Masks must still be worn in all common areas of the clinic, so please keep bringing your masks!
  2. Our waiting room will be open on a limited basis (yay!)

All other COVID-19/communicable disease guidelines remain in place, and can be viewed on our website.  Our profession is governed by the College of Physical Therapists of BC and the College of Massage therapists of BC.  The rules and regulations passed down from these Colleges supersede any WorkSafeBC requirements which are imposed on the general population.  Therefore, we can only relax restrictions once our Colleges approve.  Our setting is a healthcare setting which is a high risk environment, even if masks are worn.  As the summer progresses, we hope to receive new guidance from our Colleges which will allow us to ease some of our other protocols.  However, we will only do so if we believe it will not interfere with the health and safety of our therapists, staff, and patients.

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