There is an adventurer in all of us.  Dr. Tyler grew up in Grants Pass, Oregon.  From a young age, Tyler spent most of his time outside.  It seemed like one outdoor obsession lead to another and filled his young life with fun, and a lot of scars! (Much to his mother’s chagrin)

After graduating from high school, Dr. Best’s free spirit brought him to Mexico, where he served as a missionary for his church.  It is here that his heart found its calling.  “I knew I wanted to help people, and I knew that I wanted to use my hands.”  Dr. Tyler spent two years living in the jungle and doing what he could to help those he served, forming relationships that he still treasures to this day.


Sometimes life has a way of getting us where we need to be.  After his time in Mexico,  Dr. Best found himself looking for a new place to call home.  Through a series of events, his feet landed on Alaskan soil in 2009.  Never did two things fit better together than Tyler and Alaska.   In 2012 he met and married his wife, a lifelong Alaskan.  While their marriage took them to Oregon for chiropractic school, Dr. Best promised his wife that once he was done with school, they would always call Alaska home- a  promise she holds him to.   Dr. Best attended the University of Western States where he graduated with his doctorate in chiropractics and a masters in exercise sports science.  He is a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician and is ART certified (Active Release Technique)


Dr. Best and his family returned to Alaska in 2015 where he immediately became active in the chiropractic community.  From participating in health expos to conferences, he has done his best to learn and grow both as a doctor and as a community member.  Along the way, he has continued to hone his craft as well as throwing himself down a mountain or two. (Much to his wife’s chagrin.!) Dr. Best and his wife Jody are the parents of three children.  They are both committed to making Anchorage a better, more active place to live.
