Bryce believes the best practice to optimal health and wellness is driven by lifestyle choices and a regular fitness routine that involves mindful movements to optimize the efficiency of the human machine. This philosophy drives Bryce’s practice to try and identify the root cause of dysfunction that resulted in injury, pain or decreased performance. Once identified Bryce uses the appropriate tools at his disposal to help eliminate or minimize the dysfunction. Bryce believes to maintain optimal health that no single health care discipline has all the tools or capabilities. Bryce believes a strong integrative team approach can be advantageous for numerous conditions and is a requirement for optimal health and wellness.
