Dr. Jerome Fryer – Nanaimo, BC, Chiropractor

Jerome Fryer

As a Nanaimo chiropractor, I am here to help you. My patient-centred approach focuses on improving your health by carefully investigating the anatomy in question to reduce your pain and symptoms. I believe in an integrated approach, bringing together the knowledge learned from all aspects. My plan is to seek out the cause of your symptoms and then figure out the best strategies to allow your body to heal it best through the natural regenerative laws of the human system. Please take a moment to look around and familiarize yourself with my site. I hope you find it informative.

 As of May 19, 2020, Chiropractors in BC have been giving the green light and advised to follow this guideline, issued by Dr. Bonny Henry:

COVID-19: Infection Prevention and Control Guidance for Community-Based Allied Health Care Providers in Clinic Settings
May 15, 2020

I will be working at 75% capacity to allow appropriate time for improved cleaning Upon arrival, you will be required to fill out a self questionnaire regarding COVID19. IF YOU ARE SICK OR HAVE SYMPTOMS RELATED TO COVID19, DO NOT COME IN. CALL THE OFFICE. YOU WILL NOT BE CHARGED FOR A CANCELLATION RELATED TO COVID19 SYMPTOMS. I TOO, WILL NOT COME TO WORK IF I AM DISPLAYING SYMPTOMS. Social distancing protocols will be implemented at Pure Body Balance. I will be wearing a medical/surgical mask along with eye protection and it is now imperative that patients wear one too. If you do not have one, I will provide that for you and an additional one for a subsequent visit if you need it. I have installed a HEPA filtering system within the treatment room. OPTIM 33TB Wipes are used to clean the table and all touchable surfaces before each patient visit. If you have any specific questions, please reach out to me through the contact form. Thank you for your patience. Let’s all be safe.

Update: Nov 10th
Because of the recent positive cases identified locally in Nanaimo, I decided to get tested just to be sure I am not an asymptomatic carrier. On Nov 10th, 2020 I received a negative result.

How Chiropractors Treat Pain

Pain reduction is often the number one reason why people seek out a chiropractor. Doctors of chiropractic understand the pain is transmitted through an intricate network, weaving through the body’s tissues. Dr. Jerome Fryer has extensive knowledge of the anatomy of pain generators as both a chiropractor and founder/chief innovation officer of Dynamic Disc Designs Corp. (which Dr. Fryer developed from the ground up). Often pain is produced with certain body movements or positions that are related to load and gravity. With his research knowledge using upright MRI, Dr. Fryer has created the models to help patients and other practitioners understand clearly the pain generators of the musculoskeletal system. The models cast light onto the anatomy in question and offer therapeutic solutions to decrease inflammation. Dr. Fryer ensures that the patient is heard at all times and makes their goals a top-priority.

Evidenced-based Approach

The anatomy of dysfunctional human joints begins with a reduction in the spacing between the bones. The narrower a joint is, the more dysfunctional it is. Narrowing of joint space width is the earliest signs of a joint that is not functioning properly. Proper alignment of the bones brings increased joint space which is at the root of Dr. Fryer’s treatment. Spinal manipulation, which increases the spacing of facet joint (which can be seen here ) OR the use of manual decompression techniques to improve the height of the intervertebral discs (like flexion distraction) is at the foundation of his treatments. Using an evidenced-based approach to spinal care, Dr. Jerome Fryer (chiropractor) works hard to stay abreast of the current research to provide the best outcomes for patients. His straight forward and rational approach to care provides relief as well as optimal spinal function to improve overall health.

Dr. Jerome Fryer in the News

Dr. Jerome Fryer’s recent publication in PLOS One titled: Real-Time Visualization of Joint Cavitation went world wide in the news. On April 15th, 2015 a press release, out of the University of Alberta, talked a little about how the study was initiated. This news was published in over 500 media stories including the The BlazeThe GuardianHerald and NewsToronto StarThe Columbian….  just to name only a few. An interview with Dr. Fryer can be heard on As it Happens and also on the Jill Bennet Show. The inception of the study began when Jerome contacted his fellow colleague Greg Kawchuk, after an anatomical observation had been made in the development of one of his spine models. The Nanaimo Daily News wrote a nice piece. This research published in PLOS One has not defined the sound source. Dr. Jerome continues to push this research to help understand the physics of synovial joints. You can see how others are citing his research here >>
