Bruce runs a diverse chiropractic practice, he applies an integrative approach to patient care, working in conjunction with or referring to the appropriate healthcare practitioners to treat patients. Bruce treats patients using a mixture of spinal corrective procedures, soft tissue and rehabilitative treatments; this addresses the underlying causes of injury or disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century, by shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach. With treatment of the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms, Bruce combines his approach with rehabilitation and education of the specific injury or medical condition to get the corrective and sustained result.

Bruce engages with his patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, he supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
