Dr. George Tyler, D.C. is a Chiropractor at North Raleigh

My chiropractor stopped the pain!

Growing up I had a condition of the knees called Osgood- Schlatter Disease. It is one of the most common causes of knee pain in children. I was active in sports, but the pain in my knees frustrated me and limited my participation. My parents took me to their medical doctors but none were able to stop the pain. Then my father took me to a chiropractor. After only a few adjustments, to my back and knees, the pain began to go away. I was both thankful and amazed. I can tell you from my experience both as a patient and a doctor… chiropractic works and it works well!

My chiropractic journey

That was my introduction to chiropractic and I knew then what I wanted to do with my life. After receiving my Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology from N.C. State University, I went on to earn my Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life University in Atlanta . I choose to attend Life University because of the strong subluxation-based philosophy. The curriculum at Life University consisted of 2,887 hours of classroom study and 1,598 hours of clinical studies, including kinesiology, toxicology and spinal adjusting. So, while my education sharpened my expertise, my philosophy drives my passion.

In practice, I utilize a wide range of chiropractic techniques, muscular therapies and therapeutic exercise specifically tailored for each patient. This provides an integrated chiropractic approach to conservative care. My practice focuses on the entire family and offers the highest quality of chiropractic care to both children and adults. I find that holistic, conservative care is an extremely effective treatment for a wide variety of conditions. I am an excellent clinician, and a good listener. I hope to have the opportunity to meet you in person and discuss your specific health challenges.

On a personal note

I am blessed to have a lovely wife, Joselyn and three children, Jillian, George Jr. and Vanessa. When I am not spending time with my family, I enjoy listening to jazz, playing the saxophone and I am an avid football fan.

Dr. Luis Alvarez, D.C. is a Chiropractor at North Raleigh

Dr. Alvarez grew up in Colombia, South America. He has had a passion for health care his entire life. He first graduated at the age of twenty from the Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. He worked for a little over three years as a critical care nurse in the ICU and the ER.

Later, his passion for health care drove him to pursue a doctorate in chiropractic at Sherman College in South Carolina where he obtained his degree in March 2018. Dr. Alvarez states that he chose chiropractic due to its focus on promoting health rather than treating disease.

Dr. Alvarez loves living and working in Raleigh NC. He also enjoys a good book, jogging on the greenway and black coffee in the mornings. His favorite quote is credited to man by the name of Kahlil Gibran, “To understand the heart and mind of a person, look not at what he has already achieved but at what he aspires to.”
