Dr. Tyler Ideus is often asked how he differs from other chiropractors and physical therapists, and the answer lies in his story. Dr. Tyler first gained experience in health care from studying athletic training and exercise science at Nebraska Wesleyan University while working both as an athletic trainer, and a physical therapy technician. A severe back injury during his senior year of basketball at NWU led Dr. Tyler to seek chiropractic care, which eventually led to his decision to attend chiropractic school.
While earning his doctorate, Dr. Tyler explored far beyond the typical chiropractic education. He sought information from additional medical sources such as neurology, physical therapy, orthopedics, and strength and conditioning. Through this variety of education, continued learning, and teaching, Dr. Tyler has created a truly unique program based on each patient’s individual findings and needs, without bias or restricted perspective. Most treatments consist of components of chiropractic, physical therapy and soft tissue work.
Dr. Tyler's philosophy is simple, "to be successful, you have to be willing to get out of your comfort zone." This is why he strives to learn constantly, to utilize the best possible care that exists, and to guide patients to find other sources of treatment for a more comprehensive rehabilitation.
Dr. Tyler is extremely passionate about learning and offering the best service possible to his patients, which is why his goal is to be an expert. He achieves this by surrounding himself with other experts in conservative health care, studying current research, reading textbooks, and attending continuing education courses around the world. In 2016, he became an International Assisting Instructor of Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS).
DNS is the leading rehab philosophy today, making it a highly sought-after educational track that reaches across the globe with courses offered worldwide. Dr. Tyler is one of the very few people who have been asked to teach due to both his dedication and performance. In this role, Dr. Tyler travels the globe teaching courses to chiropractors, physical therapists, personal trainers, and strength and conditioning coaches.
While Dr. Tyler began his profession with a special interest in conservative care, he is proud to have expanded his scope of practice to not only dysfunctions of the spine, but also the jaw, and upper and lower extremities. He has also incorporated more nutrition-based plans to his treatment by ordering and assessing lab work when needed.
"It is my goal that after meeting me you feel that someone has really listened to you, understands your situation, and sincerely cares about helping you achieve your goals in the most effective way possible."
