Meet Dr. Kevin M. Lyter

During my junior year I suffered serious neck injuries in a water-skiing accident while staying with a friends’ family. His parents took me to their chiropractor who took x-rays and gave me my first chiropractic adjustment. I had tremendous results from just one adjustment. My friend was planning to attend chiropractic school and I started thinking that this might be a good career path for me.

Law School Was Not For Me

My original plan of going to law school didn’t look so great after spending a summer working in a law firm. I enrolled in chiropractic school and graduated from Life Chiropractic College West at the end of 2000 and began practicing in Washington the following year. I experienced phenomenal results with chronic allergy and sinus problems almost immediately from a specific upper cervical adjustment and realized immediately that I wanted to practice a specific upper cervical technique.

A New Opportunity

In 2005 the opportunity to practice with Dr. Simmons and Dr. Kahrs was presented to me. When I met with Dr. Simmons and he demonstrated the Atlas Orthogonal Instrument adjustment on me and my wife, I was hooked, and decided that this was the place for me to practice. Along with full spine adjusting I try to help patients understand the importance of exercise and making sound nutritional choices.

I live in Puyallup with my wife Beth, who is a doctor of physical therapy, and our sons, Logan and Cameron.

I consider myself an excellent listener and hope I get the opportunity to meet you in person and discuss your specific health challenge. Give our Tacoma office a call or email us with the link below.
