Experience in Colorado
Dr. Tanya bruns specialized in sports chiropractic, working with a wide range of athletes. Dr. Tanya Bruns passion for working with active individuals is what drew her to 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 finds truly rewarding.
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 doctor 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 complicated cases alongside well respected chiropractors, and complimentary to other 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.
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 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. Her specialized skill set provides an individualized treatment plan, which is discussed and agreed upon before the next visit. Her services 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.
