Dr. Bryan Bond received his B.S. in Kinesiology from the University of Waterloo in Ontario. He earned his B.S. in Human Biology and Doctor of Chiropractic degrees from the National University of Health Sciences, and spent several years in private practice before joining Cleveland Chiropractic College (CCC) in 2002.
While employed at CCC, Dr. Bond taught a variety of courses, including biomechanics, geriatrics, and management of musculoskeletal conditions, and he served as a Research Fellow at the Cleveland Research Center from 2007-2008.
After 10 years as teaching faculty at CCC, he accepted a full-time faculty position at the University of Saint Mary. Dr. Bond currently holds the rank of Professor, and is also the Director of Research in the Department of Physical Therapy at USM. Currently he instructs biomechanics, human imaging, and musculoskeletal assessment courses at USM.
Dr. Bond has a master's degree in Biomechanics from the University of Kansas, and is pursuing a Ph.D. in Rehabilitation Science from the University of Kansas Medical Center. His dissertation topic involves examining the central nervous system effects of spinal manipulation in low back pain patients using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).
Dr. Bond has presented post-graduate workshops for a number of professional state and national associations, including Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Maine, and Ohio.
