MEET DR. KYLE
Dr. Kyle Konas is an upper cervical chiropractor in Traverse City. He is a husband, father, and Michigan native. He grew up an athlete and avid sports fan. He carried his love for athletics to Western Michigan University where he gained his Bachelor’s Degree (and a wife!) while studying Exercise Science.
While working as a personal trainer during his undergraduate studies, he noticed something that intrigued him: individuals who seemed to be physically fit and ‘healthy’ still suffered from many ailments such as headaches, insomnia, allergies, asthma, anxiety and more. Dr. Kyle had been to chiropractors as a child, but was never exposed to a neurologically based upper cervical chiropractor until later in life and was instantly obsessed. He decided to pursue his doctoral studies at Palmer College of Chiropractic Florida.
En route to obtaining his Doctor of Chiropractic degree, he also led multiple on-campus clubs, was voted Most Outstanding Future Alumni by his peers, named a Fellow of the Holder Research Institute, and was the recipient of the Virgil Strang Philosophy Award. This was all in addition to his ultimate goal in life of being a loving father and husband. Dr. Kyle also spent time gaining certifications in Chiropractic Orthospinology and Torque Release Technique.
MEET SHEENA KONAS
Sheena is a wife and mother to two children, Easton and Tessah. She grew up with a big family in West Michigan where she spent time playing many sports and camping across the Midwest.
From a young age Sheena suffered from sports induced asthma, anxiety, depression, and back pain. All of these things affected her athletic performance for many years. She took medication to try and “cure” these symptoms but nothing ever seemed to get to the root cause. Being close to family, Sheena decided to stay in West Michigan for college and attended Western Michigan University where she obtained her bachelor’s degree in communications and had a minor in holistic health.
MEET TESSAH AND EASTON
Tessah and Easton are both very outgoing and friendly. Tessah enjoys activities such as gymnastics, loving on babies, and playing with friends. Her goals include learning multiple languages and becoming a chiropractor like her dad.
Easton has an extreme passion for sports, specifically hockey and football. He also enjoys playing with friends and doing puzzles. His current goal in life is to play in the NFL.
You may see these two hanging around the office playing card games, playing with other kids, and interacting with our practice members. Be sure to say hello when you see them!

MEET THE TEAM
I am the wife of a lineman (Tim), mother to three beautiful children (Ayla, Addisin, and Jaxon), and Traverse City native. I’m a home birth advocate and passionate about helping other people. I enjoy hiking, traveling, and spending time with family.
I am originally from Cadillac. I have an A.A. degree from NMC and a B.S. from Eastern Michigan University. Before moving back to Traverse City 7 years ago, I lived in Washington state and Ohio. I love hiking, reading, and the beach and try to combine all three as often as I can—winter or summer!
