Meet the Doctor
I am proud to say that I come from a family of chiropractors and have been a chiropractic patient since the time I took my first steps. Since I was a child and through high school I played sports year round and when in college I raced snowmobiles so I constantly found myself needing chiropractic care. Seeing how much it helped me through sports and racing injuries, I decided to pursue a career that allowed me to stay active and healthy despite many injuries.
I have been a Chiropractor for 18 years and spent my first 12 years practicing chiropractic outside of Sacramento. I attended St. Mary's College where I received my Bachelor's in Science, then attended Life West Chiropractic College, graduating in 2003. For seven years I specialized in Spinal Disc Injuries and Treatment and was one of Northern California’s leading experts in Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression. In both 2013 and 2014, the public and local physicians voted my office one of the Top Ten Clinics in the entire Sacramento region. I am also one of the very few Physicians in the country that specialize in the Gonstead Chiropractic Technique. In 2014 my wife and I began our move to raise our children in an environment that as more conducive to our personal beliefs and values. I have been coming to Idaho numerous times a year since 1996 to recreate, race and hunt, so this move made sense and we are now excited to call Idaho our permanent home.
On a personal note, I grew up in Clovis, a small town in the Central Valley of California at the base of the Sierra Nevadas. My wife Melissa and I are blessed with 3 young boys; Dominic(10), Lucca(7) and Matteo(7). Yes, the youngest are twins, and rest assure, they are are full of energy and keep us on our toes! My wife Melissa is Dietitian and works for a local Dialysis company. We all enjoy the outdoors and stay extremely active on the weekends riding snowmobiles, dirt bikes, and hunting.
I am devoted to giving my patients the very best in health care. I have a great deal of confidence in what Chiropractic can do to help you with your health needs, when performed correctly. I have devoted my career to providing the most honest, and straight forward approach to Chiropractic care available. I spend the extra time to properly diagnose patients, take on site x-rays, tailor a care plan for your needs, and I make recommendations solely for your benefit. I utilize and specialize in the highly touted, Gonstead Technique, and am 1 of less than 6 Chiropractors in the state of Idaho to specialize in this technique. I am here to help you with your problems, and I will tell you exactly what you need, or don't need. Unfortunately, this seems to happen on rare occasion in my profession, but I promise, you will not find a more honest, thorough and educated Chiropractic Physician. I look forward to meeting you!
Dr. Anthony J. Oberti, D.C.
Hello, I am Dr. Kynan and I am from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. I moved here to Nampa, Idaho in April 2020 with my fiancé and am proud to be a part of the Whole Health Chiropractic team. I specialize in the Gonstead system of chiropractic, utilizing specific, precise adjustments.
Growing up in Canada, I was always playing competitive sports. I played hockey all year round and fastpitch softball in the summers. From a young age chiropractic kept me healthy while playing sports and allowed me to perform at my best. When I was 18-years-old, I suffered a serious concussion while playing softball. I experienced delayed reaction time, forgetfulness, excessive napping, inability to sleep for more than a few hours at a time, and difficulty focusing. After extensive testing, every healthcare professional told me to just “give it time” for my symptoms to go away. Chiropractic sped up that healing process and got me back to myself quicker than anyone thought possible. Chiropractic gave me my life back. That is when I knew I wanted to be a chiropractor and help others in the same way it helped me.
I graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with a degree in Kinesiology. From there I went onto attend Life University for chiropractic school where I graduated Magna Cum Laude. In chiropractic school I chose to specialize in the Gonstead system as it gives me the tools I needed, and the confidence, to provide the best possible care to each different and unique person. I served as Gonstead club president while in school and have attended over 200 hours of seminars in the Gonstead system. Utilizing digital x-rays and a precise neurological exam, I can provide my patients with the best possible care. I love seeing athletes, kids of all ages, and families.
When I am not in the office, I enjoy being outdoors with my fiancé and our dog Cypress. I enjoy hiking, playing disc/frisbee golf, fishing, hunting, going to the gym, and golfing. I still play fastpitch softball and hockey as much as I can. Nutrition is an important aspect of overall health, so my fiancé and I like to cook and buy as much local produce and meat as possible. I love this community so you will likely see me out at local events and farmer’s markets.
I am grateful to be able to serve this community and look forward to seeing you in the office.
Yours in health,
Dr. Kynan Tarnowski, D.C.
