Dr. Barnick received his Bachelors degree in Biology from Concordia College in Minnesota before going on to earn his Doctorate in Chiropractic from Northwestern Health Sciences University in 2005. His chiropractic career began in Missoula, Montana where he practiced for two years before moving to Washington to join Bellevue Chiropractic Associates. In 2013 Dr. Barnick furthered his post-graduate education by earning credentials as a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP). His clinical interests include the treatment of sports injuries as well as care for both acute and chronic musculo-skeletal conditions.
Dr. Barnick loves the natural approach to health care that chiropractic provides. Through clinical and personal experience as a 4 year collegiate athlete, he is acutely aware of how effective chiropractic care is in enhancing sports performance, injury prevention, and keeping you active throughout life . He and his wife Nicole enjoy the active lifestyle that living in the Northwest offers. They spend their free time skiing, hiking, running, and chasing around their toddler.
“I encourage patients to be proactive with their health by making good lifestyle choices”, says Dr. Barnick. “A healthy functioning spine and nervous system, along with proper nutrition and exercise, are the keys to keeping the body functioning at an optimum level. Our goal with every patient is to correct the underlying cause of their health concerns and help them achieve a higher level of health.”

My goal with each patient is to get to the root cause of your problem. We don’t simply chase the pain. Through a complete spinal exam and functional movement evaluation we can identify factors that led to the symptoms in the first place. We then create a plan to not only get you out of pain, but to correct underlying dysfunction. Utilizing spinal adjustments and functional exercise we strive to get you back to optimal function, living without pain and getting back to doing the things you love to do without limitation.
If I Wasn’t a Chiropractor
A college football injury exposed me to chiropractic first hand. Before that experience I was planning on medical school.
