Dr. Tyler Kaye was born and raised in Erie, PA. He received his associate degree as a Physical Therapist Assistant and a Bachelor of Science in public health at Mercyhurst University in Erie, PA.

He ultimately decided to continue his education by attending graduate school for chiropractic at Logan University in St Louis, MO. Dr. Kaye is certified in SFMA and TPI which is helpful to see how the body moves as a whole and prevent injuries in golfers and other athletes.

He also attended a wide variety of rehab seminars to ensure every patient has been prescribed the specific and appropriate treatment they need. Dr. Kaye had the privilege of working with kids, veterans, elite athletes, and geriatric patients, giving him the experience needed to help a large variety of populations.

Dr. Kaye moved to Columbus, Ohio with his dog Rizzo. He enjoys all sports, but hockey is his favorite, especially when it comes to the Pittsburgh Penguins! In his free time, he loves spending time with his family, reading, and challenging himself in the gym. He is excited to help the people in his new community of Columbus, Ohio and teach them the benefits of chiropractic and active care!
