Bryce C. Staker, D.C.
Dr. Bryce C. Staker is a 1966 graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. He was raised on a farm near Traer, Iowa, where the family chiropractor was Dr. Frank M. Henry, known to Dr. Staker as “Uncle Frank.” Dr. Henry was one of three uncles of Dr. Staker who were chiropractors.
Dr. Staker was inspired by his Uncle Frank, after having his health restored as a child, and the desire to become a chiropractor never left him. After graduating from Palmer College he served in the U.S. Army Reserves from 1967 to 1973. Before opening up in Geneva on Nov 2, 1969 he interned with Dr. Charles Stelcik in Belle Plaine, Iowa for two years. Dr. Staker built his clinic in 1976 across the street from a farm field which would eventually become Delnor Community Hospital.
Since 1969 Dr. Staker has been a member of International Chiropractic Association, Christian Chiropractic Association, and the Illinois Prairie State Chiropractic Association. He served as the secretary, vice president, and director of the IPSCA and past chairmen of the Illinois Chiropractic Information Bureau. In 1980 he authored an article that was published in the IPSCA Journal titled, “The Philosophy, Science and Art of Chiropractic.”
