  • I have been going to Dr. Matthisen for 2 years as a UAA student athlete. He helped me get back into training after a bad sprained ankle within a week. I also went to him after getting whiplash in a car accident and I did not need insurance! I still see him regularly for just everyday pain. His massage therapists are the best and the staff is always super friendly! I will continue going to Dr. Matthisen because he is awesome and I know I can trust him and his judgement.

  • I put off coming into see Dr. Barry because of time, because I work across town & it's hard for me to break away from work, because I'm tired after work... blah blah blah. I finally made my back a priority as it started locking up and causing all sorts of pain. Here I am having my back stretched and preparing for an adjustment- one that I know will help in the long run! Thank you Doc!!

  • A friend of mine recommended me to Dr Barry about a year ago. I was have lower back pain so bad that it hurt to set or stand. After four treatments it was much better, I continued to see Dr Barry and now haven't had any pain for 8 months. Not ONLY does Dr Barry adjust you but you get a massage as part of the treatment

Life happens. We get it.
