He has also succeeded in competitive swimming achieving three BC gold medals at the Provincial Championships. Dr. Jerome Fryer has extensive knowledge in sport physiology. Currently he enjoys swimming, hockey and spinal research.
Having completed and published three peer reviewed publications between the years of 2008-2011, he practices with an evidenced based approach, carefully selecting research to guide his treatment plans for patient care.
“Chiropractic is an art with science at the foundation”, he states. He is also committed to spinal research to improve chiropractic outcomes for patients. Understanding the anatomy of manual treatment and how to promote healing for the spinal structures is at the top of his priority list to help patients achieve the most effective outcomes.
Recent acknowledgement of a research grant has been awarded to Dr. Jerome Fryer from Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.
