He uses an integrative approach combining various methods of Chiropractic, soft tissue manipulation and rehab procedures in his treatments to effectively help patients decrease pain, recover from injuries, reduce their risk of re-injury and increase athletic performance.

Personally, Sulzer practices what he preaches by regularly doing these same exercises taught in class to stay healthy as a mountain athlete. A few examples of Sulzer finding balance in life throughout the past year include running traverses in the north Cascades, skiing the Grand, and gaining 300,000 feet of elevation.
