As a physical therapist, Tyler Odens enjoys being able to discern a breakthrough in what ails a person when that person cannot. “Sometimes as a patient, it is hard to see any improvements,” he says. “But being that outside eye, I can tell him or her: “Yes, you are doing better, and here’s why – and here’s how we can help you do even better.’”
His approach to care centers on seeing the patient as a whole person and not just as one specific problem. He then focuses on getting them to feel better. “It’s rewarding to see patients go from not being able to walk more than four or five steps, to be able to walk all the way down the hallway. So, when they go home, they’re not feeling as though they are stuck in one room. They can be safe and enjoy life and not feel as though life is being drained from them.”
Outside his practice, Mr. Odens loves being in the mountains to hike, climb, camp, fish, ski, and snowboard. He is also a basketball and football fan.
