About the Doctor

My name is Tyler Burbank and I am a chiropractor. I Graduated from Western States Chiropractic College in Portland Oregon in 1992 with honors (Cum Laude). I have owned and operated clinics in Louisiana, British Columbia, Washington and New Mexico. I am a dual Canadian/American citizen. I have spent my career treating neck and back soft tissue injuries. I love fishing. I played soccer in college and still love the game. I moved to New Mexico in 2007 and truly enjoy living here.

My practice philosophy can be summed up in these few words, “no nonsense injury care”. I treat neck and back pain primarily. I also have knowledge in nutritional counseling. When you come to my office you will not hear a sales pitch. I will tell you the truth. If I can’t help you, I will tell you. Then, I will try to find someone who can help you. Treating people who are in pain has taught me, above all else, empathy and caring. The techniques I use include ultrasound, spinal manipulation, soft tissue manipulation, spinal decompression (using some very specialized equipment) and electrotherapy. If there is a non invasive way to treat neck and back pain, I will find it and practice it to the benefit of my patients. In general I am a man of few words and am shy about announcing my credentials to the world. My work speaks for itself. I invite you to my office to help you determine for yourself the value of my services.


Do you accept insurance?

Yes. Most insurance plans will pay for my services. Co-pays range from $15 to $45 per visit, depending on the plan. Work injury and car accident injuries are fully covered and have no co-pay

Will the care hurt?

If you are a good candidate for this treatment, it should only cause minor discomfort. I will not treat you if resulting pain will be severe.

I have never been to a chiropractor before. I am a little skeptical. Are chiropractors real doctors?

The schooling for chiropractors is comparable to that of Medical doctors except for the hospital residency and pharmaceutical training. I feel every doctor should be judged individually by the quality of their work and knowledge and not by the letters printed behind their name. Doctors of chiropractic are recognized and licensed as doctors in all 50 US states.

I have a spinal disc Injury. Can spinal decompression help me?

Disc injuries are perhaps the most difficult injuries to successfully manage. Many patients with this condition can benefit from decompression treatment, others frankly do not. Some pain syndromes are separate from the disc injury, and are so severe that nothing helps but drugs and surgery. Consenting to a surgical procedure is a big decision and most surgeons are very picky about who they agree to cut on. Spinal decompression is a good alternative to many disc patients.
