Tyler A. Pyles, PT, DPT

Location(s)

Tyler grew up near Alexandria, Louisiana, where he excelled in both football and baseball in high school. He participated in a year of collegiate football after walking on at the University of Louisiana at Monroe. In order to focus on school, he then transferred to his father’s alma mater, Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana, where he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology in 2012. He later received his Doctorate in Physical Therapy, graduating Cum Laude from the University of Saint Augustine for Health Sciences in Saint Augustine, Florida, in August 2016. After getting his doctorate he went to work for the University of Georgia in Athens, GA. Here he had the pleasure of learning from some of the industry’s leaders and spent time working with a variety of club sport athletes (ultimate Frisbee, baseball, hockey, dancers, tennis, flag football, runners, etc…). He enjoys assessing the bigger picture and figuring out the best way to help each patient individually. This could be preparing someone to return to sport or helping someone get onto and off the floor to play with their grandkids. He believes in the integration of both manual therapy and functional strengthening in order to help his patients reach their goals. He encourages his patients to implement exercise as a part of their weekly routine in order promote a healthy lifestyle. Currently, he is working toward getting his manual therapy certification as well as a certification in strength and conditioning. In his spare time he enjoys being outdoors, working out, attending sporting events, travelling, and playing golf.
