Dr. Timothy Benner


Executive Director
Benner Chiropractic, Inc.

Dr. Timothy Benner has been in private practice for 23 years. He completed his pre-chiropractic curriculum at Phoenix College and graduated from Parker College of Chiropractic in 1985.

He stays current on the latest adjusting techniques to achieve the most profound results. Dr. Benner has been a certified B.E.S.T. practitioner for 19 years and can answer any questions you have about your condition, response to care, and which treatment options will provide optimum results.

"I injured my neck while playing high school football. My neck was so tight that I could hardly sit upright during school. My neck was in constant pain. I had lost range of motion and the pain was just getting to the point where it was unbearable.

My friend Alan Helvig said to me, "my dad can fix your neck. He's a chiropractor." I had never heard of a chiropractor before, but, I agreed because I was in pain. His father, Dr. Armond Helvig, gave me my first chiropractic adjustment when I was 17 years of age. It was truly a miracle. It was amazing. I could not believe how much different I felt immediately after that adjustment. I could move my neck again; all of the pain was gone; and I felt two inches taller.

Shortly after I finished high school I just knew that I had to go to college. I didn't know what for. I just knew that I needed a higher education and had this one simple thought: Chiropractic helped me and I liked helping people. So why not? And clearly, God opened every door after that.

I received my chiropractic degree from Parker College of Chiropractic in 1985. I had some wonderful instructors, received an excellent education and learned how to adjust a person's spine in three different techniques: The Thompson, the Gonstead, and the Activator. Truly, I was fortunate to have had first hand experience with some of the finest chiropractic adjusters who have served mankind in the 20th Century.

Dr. M. T. Morter, Jr., the developer of the B.E.S.T. procedure, was the President of Parker College of Chiropractic when I was a first-year student. Back then I was listening to the questions he was asking, like: "Why does the vertebra go out of alignment to begin with? Why doesn't the body put the vertebrae back by itself, since it is in the body? Or, why doesn't an adjustment hold?" But, while I was listening to this, the B.E.S.T. procedure was not what motivated me to seek a career as a chiropractor. Spinal manipulation was the procedure that changed my life and motivated me to seek a chiropractic education.

However, those questions that Dr. Morter raised always stayed in the back of my mind, and I know that personally I got to the point where my body would not hold an adjustment for very long. By the time I got to my car it felt like my adjustment went right back out.





After 17 years of receiving what many considered standard chiropractic care, I had gotten to the point where chiropractors, even excellent, proficient chiropractors with sound technique, were no longer able to manipulate my lower spine. My lower back was just too tight and they could not get it to move. My mid-back was always out; and it would always go out. It just seemed like it moved too much. My neck would not hold an adjustment.

I called Dr. Walter Parish who was a classmate and friend of mine from Parker College. The difference between us was that he studied Dr. Morter's work as a student, and practiced B.E.S.T exclusively when he opened his practice in Tucson, Arizona. I went to him and received my first B.E.S.T. adjustment. It literally changed my life...again, and altered the way I would practice chiropractic forever.

Both of my ankles were very tight and tender when he turned them. After the B.E.S.T. procedure not only did the tenderness and tension in my ankles dissipate completely, but nerve and muscle tension patterns that I had lived with for years relaxed as well! B.E.S.T. has helped me identify subconscious patterns that interfere with optimal nervous system function in my body, and has taught me how to stay in the moment so interference is created less often.

You see, there are three places that we can live. We can live in the past, in the future or in the moment. The only place to live, where healing can occur, is in the moment. Anxiety is always present if we are living in the past or living in the future. Healing and anxiety can not occur simultaneously.

I am eternally grateful to Dr. Morter for his curiosity and passion that led him to identify why chiropractic adjustments work and why sometimes they don't work. Why some people respond and others don't. Personally, I have not received a spinal manipulation in over ten years.

My practice is currently 100% B.E.S.T. I will do spinal manipulations for patients upon request, however, the primary emphasis of my practice is to identify the cause of the patient's problem, and then apply B.E.S.T. principles and technique to achieve optimal health for my patient."

Financial Manager

Tia has 23 years experience managing a chiropractic office. She oversees the filing of insurance claims on behalf of our patients, and the maintenance of patient accounts. Tia stays current on computer and insurance changes.

"I have been treated with the B.E.S.T. procedure for over 20 years. Since my husband went back to be updated in the procedure several years ago the changes I have felt have been amazing.

When one of our children has a problem, like sleep, etc. they get adjusted. When my body feels imbalanced or uncomfortable, it's wonderful to have something that works for me. I tell all of my friends because I know this is the 'best' option available! (No pun intended.)"
