Ty completed his Honours Bachelor of Science degree with high distinction from the University of Toronto. He majored in Human Physiology and Human Biology and participated in cellular research looking into epilepsy at Toronto Western Hospital in his final year. He then went on to complete his Masters in Physical Therapy at the University of Toronto as well, where he also participated in clinical research investigating the effects of aging on different sensory systems and balance. This was later published in Physical Therapy, which is an American peer-reviewed medical journal.
To further enhance his clinical skills, Ty completed his Clinical Doctor of Physical Therapy degree which focused on advanced management of musculoskeletal disorders.
Ty has practiced in Victoria, BC for several years in a multidisciplinary clinic setting working with a variety of patients. Ty is an Adjunct Professor at the University of British Columbia and he has been involved in the clinical education of Physiotherapists and Athletic Therapists since 2013.
Ty’s approach to physiotherapy is based on ensuring a thorough assessment and looking at the body as a whole. He uses an evidence-based approach to treatment and utilizes trigger point dry needling, manual therapy, corrective exercises and self-management strategies to ensure his patients have a comprehensive plan towards addressing their concerns. His clinical interests include neck pain, low back pain, shoulder pain and knee pain.
