Dr. Barrick has been helping patients become pain free and lead healthier lives for 22 years. He has a wealth of experience and is very passionate about improving the health and well being of his patients. Dr. Barrick is a native of New Hampshire, and his interest in chiropractic as a career started after a serious injury. At the end of an intense martial arts class, he noted his low back was sore. He woke up the next morning in severe pain and couldn’t stand up. He literally crawled to the phone and called his chiropractor. An MRI was performed and showed that he had a disc herniation in his low back. Not wanting to undergo surgery, his chiropractor recommended chiropractic treatment. Although it took almost 8 months, he was pain free, and was able to resume his training and eventually receive his black belt years later. Because of that experience, he felt a calling to become a chiropractor, so he followed his passion for natural health and embarked on a career of Chiropractic.
Dr. Barrick attends post graduate seminars regularly and stays abreast of the latest research and innovations in chiropractic, spinal rehabilitation, neurology and nutrition to better serve his patients.
When Dr. Barrick isn’t tending to his patients, he enjoys spending time with his friends and family, working out at the gym, playing the guitar, drums, and harmonica (yes really all 3), nature, and enjoying a healthy lifestyle. His personal accomplishments include earning a Black Belt in the Martial Art of Tae Kwon Do.
