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.
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
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.
