Doctor Tanya Bruns joins us with a diverse patient experience and a well-rounded educational background. Dr. Bruns began her route to active, individualized healthcare at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities where she received her BS in Clinical Nutrition in 2006. Her octor of Chiropractic degree was awarded in 2010 from the University of Bridgeport (UB) in Connecticut. As a student intern during her last year at UB she gained experience at the West Haven and Newington, Connecticut VA Hospitals, treating many compli
cated cases alongside very well respected chiropractors and complimentary to other medical healthcare professionals. Following her Doctor of Chiropractic education, Dr. Bruns pursued her love of working with athletes at Logan University in Missouri to attain her MS in Sports Science & Rehabilitation.
Dr. Bruns’ passion in working with active individuals drew her to beautiful Colorado. Her sports rehabilitation degree was completed with two invaluable clinical internships in Denver. Her time at Steadman Hawkins Rehabilitation & Sports Performance Clinic in Greenwood Village gave her a unique experience with post-surgical sports injuries of the upper and lower extremities and the spine. At the University of Denver (DU) sports medicine center Dr. Bruns assessed and treated Division I athletes of every DU sport. Working closely with the athletic trainers, she was an integral part of the prevention, treatment and recovery of injured and post-surgical athletes. Attending practices, games/meets and spending most of her time in the sports medicine center, Dr. Bruns was able to observe athletes and help them improve in every aspect of their performance, which she found truly rewarding.
In accordance with her dedication to educating each individual in their current and active health goals, Dr. Bruns also teaches at the local Colorado School of Healing Arts (CSHA) where she instructs Nutrition and Anatomy courses. Her love for the body and biomechanics go hand in hand in this position. Imparting knowledge to students who will become an important part of the healthcare profession is yet another way for her to continue giving back to the community.
Dr. Bruns’ care is based on a solid foundation beginning with a detailed initial consultation and exam, tailored to each individual. She has a variety of specialized skills to provide a specific treatment plan which is discussed and agreed upon before treatment begins in the second visit. Her skills include conservative chiropractic manipulation of the spine and extremities, neuro-muscular rehabilitation, myofascial & manual adhesion release techniques (Integrative Diagnosis and Graston Technique), and a strict dedication to helping each individual reach their goals to return to, maintain, or further enhance an active lifestyle and reach peak performance.
