Tyler Welch

Practice style (Philosophy)

Tyler graduated with an MSc in Physical Therapy from the University of Toronto in 2009. He spent six years working alongside orthopedic surgeons treating people after a variety of surgeries including ACL repairs, joint replacement, rotator cuff repairs, and major traumas. Tyler also has over a decade of experience treating all manner of acute and chronic injuries, with a special interest in injuries to the shoulder, knee, lower back and neck.
Tyler utilizes the McKenzie MDT system during his assessments and treatments. This approach allows him to methodically rule in or rule out all potential underlying causes for a patient’s problems and not simply treat the symptoms. He can then address these causes with a blend of manual therapy and targeted exercise.
His background as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist helps him bridge the gap between isolated rehabilitation exercises and the performance level training required to return to sport participation.

Unique Facts

For seven years Tyler played rugby for the Toronto Scottish RFC and also trained extensively in Muay Thai kickboxing. Having hung up both his cleats and boxing gloves, you can now find him strength training, running after his young daughter and spending time with his wife.
