Dr. Dennis J. Bradley
Born and raised in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Dr. Bradley has been in this area for over 30 years. From an early age he knew he wanted to help people in the healing arts and considers it a privilege and honor to be in the chiropractic profession. Initially planning to go to medical school (as his great grandfather and great great grandfather were both medical doctors) Dr. Bradley “discovered” chiropractic during college. Being exposed firsthand to chiropractic’s remarkable results caused him to decide to dedicate his life to the practice of chiropractic instead.
Dr. Bradley received his chiropractic education at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. He graduated Summa Cum Laude and received numerous academic honors including the President’s Award, President’s List, and Pi Tau Delta (Chiropractic Honor Society). Additionally, he was listed in Who’s Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities in 1997, and in the United States Achievement Academy’s All American Scholars Collegiate Directory from 1995 through 1997. While attending he earned an additional Bachelor of Science degree, and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree. He graduated in 1997 and immediately moved back home to Cedar Rapids.
Constantly striving to give his patients the most up to date care possible Dr. Bradley is dedicated to continuing education. He keeps abreast of the field’s research, as well as attending post graduate seminars in advanced chiropractic adjusting, diagnostic procedures, and nutrition. He focuses on exercise rehabilitation, ergonomics, injury prevention, and wellness. Dr. Bradley is trained in many treatment techniques and strives to specifically tailor treatment plans to what is best for each individual patient.
