Steve Tyssee, Founder & DPT

Clinic owner and Doctor of Physical Therapy Steve Tyssee spent the first eight years of his career working exclusively with athletes. As time passed (more than 15 years now), he developed a following as a physical therapist in Redondo Beach. That practice developed a more diverse following of patients, young and old. Dr. Tyssee’s experience and passion for excellence make Peak Orthopedic Physical Therapy the ideal choice for everything from routine rehabilitation to difficult cases.

He also knows sports from an athlete’s perspective. He played sports in high school and college, and has trained competitive athletes, including Olympians. As a former college athlete, Dr. Tyssee understands the athlete’s frame of mind – to keep playing while getting better and return to full speed as quickly as possible. It’s no different for non-athletes who want to resume their routines and favorite activities as soon as possible.

As owner and Director of Peak Orthopedic Orthopedic Physical Therapy, Steve has been working as a physical therapist in Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach, and Rancho Palos Verdes for over 15 years. He talks about the journey on the blog Reflections page.

He earned a Bachelor’s degree in Movement/Exercise Science from Chapman University, where his emphasis was in exercise physiology and athletic training. He also earned a Master’s in Physical Therapy from the University of Indianapolis. Steve has completed the requirements and has successfully passed the exam through the Maitland Australian Physiotherapy to become a Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist. Most recently he has completed advanced coursework to earn his Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) through EIM Institute of Health Professions.

As a Certified Athletic Trainer and Physical Therapist, Steve works with high school, and secondary school athletes, as well as college, Olympic and professional athletes. He opened Redondo Orthopedic in June 2003 to share his experience and expertise with the community, focusing on providing individual attention and one-on-one care to patients in a friendly, clean and safe environment. Redondo Orthopedic Physical Therapy is now Peak Orthopedic Physical Therapy with a second location in Rancho Palos Verdes.
