Brian Bodnar’s first introduction to chiropractic was during his junior year of high school, when during a basketball game he suffered an ankle injury and was forced to leave the game. A friend’s father, who was a chiropractor, assessed the ankle and performed several adjustments on the sidelines. The pain diminished almost instantly and Dr. Bodnar was able to return to the game. Following this incident, Dr. Bodnar decided he was going to be a chiropractor. He would later learn that the field of chiropractic is much more than providing relief from injuries and pain. A healthy spine and nervous system sets the foundation for total health, as the nervous system controls every function in the body.
Dr. Bodnar graduated from St. Vincent College, where he majored in Biology and Chemistry, in 1993. He received his doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA, in 1997. Palmer College was the first Chiropractic College in the world, establishing the profession in 1895. It is considered to provide the utmost education in the chiropractic field. While at Palmer, Dr. Bodnar played Division 1 National Rugby and was President of the Pettibon Spinal Biomechanics Club.
